For the past few years, Jerome Daksiewicz has designed posters to celebrate the Tour de France and while that is by no means an original design, I’ve taken a liken to his work. Head over to Nomo Design to pick up this year’s infographic.
To celebrate the Grand Départ 2014 in Yorkshire, Progress Packaging commissioned a group of designers and illustrators to create a series of unique musettes.
Musettes are 300 x 360mm, screen printed black on custom dyed yellow cotton with embroidered tag and internal pocket.
Pick up one at Process Packaging. Personally, I’m feeling the I Love Dust design…
There are insuations that I make millions of dollars a year from the cycling industry for posting high-end, limited edition, wank-resistant kits, jackets, hubs, spokes and bar tape. It’s true and Manual for Speed pays me so much money that I’m the literal Scrooge McDuck of the industry, diving into pools of Chris King headsets and PAUL Touring Cantis.
Or… I just like what companies are doing and decide to post their products, regardless of how outrageous they are. I kinda wanna wear one of these jerseys to BRUNCH BRO (sorry Emi).
Scoop up one of these completely ridiculous but somehow necessary 2014 Tour de France Manual for Speed extravaganza jerseys at Garmin Slipstream for a end of July delivery.
Everyone loves “free” and these Paul Smith posters are just that, FREE.
“One reflects Saturday 5th July, the first day of the Tour and when the athletes will cycle 190km from Leeds to Harrogate through the Yorkshire Dales. The second, in green, is Sunday 6th July when they’ll cut a dash over the Peak District from York to Sheffield. The third, bright blue poster accompanies the final stage in the Tour’s visit to the UK, on Monday 7th July, when the peloton will race 155km from Cambridge to London ending on The Mall. After which the Tour will continue in France.”

Everyone has a clever 4th of July post up right now, but I couldn’t find a better image to represent the exuberance of America’s independence AND the Tour (what is up with this?!)… Manual for Speed does it again. Pick one of these up at Manual for Speed and eat a damn hot dog for me, America.
… and drink some bourbon. And blow stuff up. And get sunburnt. And listen to records. And ride a made in the USA bike!
I’m telling you, the more I ride buckles and straps, the more I wish they were laces. Giro has now expanded their Empire platform to include the SLX model.
Read the press-release and see more photos below. Loving that color!
There’s “lightweight” and then there’s LIGHTWEIGHT. I’ve held this jacket in my mortal hands and it is amazing…
“We got our hands on some special cuts of Polartec’s NeoShell® fabric in colors not typically found in the Mission Workshop line and made some limited editions of our classic Orion jacket. The Orion provides complete waterproof protection in a lightweight and packable format, and is made with 96 g/m2 Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. The relaxed cycling fit combined with durable stretch fabrics enables maximum movement. Available for the first time in colors that will be noticed by everyone around you.”
Swoop up at Mission Workshop. Seriously, this is a worthy investment…
So… I scheduled that Rizzle video for today, thinking it was for yesterday (I’m still in OZ, where we’re about 17 hours ahead of you in the States) and I forgot to mention all the other Team Dream products in stock… Personally, I like the FFF kits, but there’s also CMYK socks, new SWRVE collaboration shorts – these rule – and other products.
See some more photos below and the full scoop at Team Dream!
I read somewhere that camo is merely “floral pattern for men” in regards to fashion. Surely, that applies to cycling – sex aside – and these new Blue Lug San Marco saddles look so good! See the Concor and Concor Racing at Blue Lug.
While you Yanks are celebrating your 4th, think of your family who are stuck overseas. I’ll be in OZ this year, so eat some hot dogs for me, hit a rope swing and don’t miss out on all the sales. Check out the special that Cadence is running!
