Just in time for Nationals, the Athletic dropped their collaboration with the Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team. Available in four colors, designed after each of the team’s bikes and in stock now at the Athletic.
I know there’s a big fat bike contingency out there, but do you also like to ski? If so, this product has piqued the interest of a few contributors to the site. Boo Bicycles makes a ski mount for bicycle racks. It doesn’t have to be a fat bike, either. Maybe there’s a bike rack at your ski lifts, or you just wanna get out of town for some cross country skiing. Whatever the motivation, this simple, yet effective solution has your name on it.
Made in the USA out of 6061 aluminum, these durable mounts are only $135 and are available for pre-order now at Boo Bicycles.
Cadence’s roots are in Seattle, so it would make sense that they would look to baseball cap manufacturer Ebbets to make their Abide wool caps. These high quality hats are made in Seattle, by hand and are in stock now at Cadence.
The newest Parallax frameset from Mash is a looker and it’s available for pre-sale now at Mash, with an expected deliver of late February. See more specs and frame availability at Mash.
I’m so stoked on this. I wish more photo-heavy sites did annuals and this one looks so good. Here’s how the guys are describing this book:
“Manual for Speed is about the vibe, man. It’s about the whole deal, the whole spectacle. In fact, if we could do it again we’d call this project Spectacle Of Speed. In support of, and in homage to, the sentiment that Spectacle is our premise, here is a catalog, a typology if you will, of The Best Shit we witnessed in 2014.”
Pre-order at Manual for Speed.
My favorite all ’rounder tire is now available in 650b. Bruce Gordon’s Rock ‘n Road multi-surface tire is finally here for both 700c and 650b bikes. Available in a gumwall and blackwall now at Bruce Gordon.
Look, none of us are exactly stoked on how consumer driven our world is. It should be about the ride, or the experience you get from being on a bike with friends, not who has the newest product or component. Yet, unfortunately to some, it is. To some extent anyway. Over here at the Radavist, we’re aware of this conundrum, but we’ll always try to steer you in the right direction when it comes to products. Remember, buy local when you can! You’re local bike shop needs you.
Check out some of our favorite products of 2014 below. Just try not to end up with an empty wallet, ok?
No 22 Bicycles have been field testing their new cyclocross bike, the Broken Arrow, all season and are finally ready to sell them – remember what I said about good things coming to those who wait. Remember, a cross bike – especially a disc bike – is incredibly versatile.
These bikes are made from 3Al-2.5V CWSR titanium in the good ol’ USA, by men and women who have been making titanium frames for decades. Each frame is warranted for 10 years and comes built, stacked with high-end components, yet barely tipping the scales at 17.3 lbs for a size 56cm. Remember, titanium isn’t a material you chose for excessive weight savings, it’s all about the ride quality.
These bikes look outstanding and are available as a frame, or complete from No 22 Bicycles, with a five-week lead time. See more below and Happy Holidays guys!
A while back, I gave Kyle from Tracko a Forestbound zippered pouch that was made from old M90 camouflage. Kyle and Bobby at Endo Customs made a pattern from that pouch, which was later used in the original Tracko vest.
Each year, Kyle sells a variation of his splinter camo, so this year, I asked if he’d want to do a collaboration. Pure and simple, this Blackened Splinter Camo jersey is just at home in the woods as it is on the road. Mix it with your favorite bibs, or the green Tracko splinter bibs…
Made in the USA by Endo Customs in Downtown LA, these jerseys are $135 plus shipping ($7 US and $15 international) and are in stock now. They will start to ship this week and will come with a replaceable zipper pull for those of you who don’t like the metal zipper.
Scoop one up below. Sorry, Sold out!
