The Radavist 2015 Calendar: March
RAD_MAR2015-SMALL

This is the third layout of the Radavist 2015 Calendar, entitled “Wet n Wild”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.

Spring is almost here and with that means snowmelt will be filling the dry creek beds. The result: wet shoes will quickly be your companion on each ride. Here’s to the warmer months and soggy feet.

International Shipping is Cheaper at Wraith
Hustle

There’s nothing worse than the sting associated with paying a hefty shipping fee, especially for international purchases. Wraith Fabrication recently lowered their $250 rate to around $50 – $70 through switching to USPS. That’s enough money to make the cost of a brand new bike a bit easier to swallow.

Head over to Wraith to check out more specs on the Hustle, their road model.

These Stinner Frameworks Jailhouse Caps Rock
Stinner_Cap-4

Or maybe they’re Jailhouse Rock?

Cycling caps are both an icon of cycling and an incredibly functional piece of apparel. They shield the sun from your face, redirect sweat from your eyes and hide hat messy, mat of hair while at a cafe or a bar, post-ride.

Design and construction must go hand in hand when conceptualizing a product, regardless of simplicity. These Stinner Frameworks caps were designed by Team Dream Team, built by Pace in California and are one of the most carefully executed designs I’ve seen. All of the lines match up perfectly, something that isn’t illustrated accurately in Aaron’s product photos, so I took the liberty of documenting it myself.

I know this was a bit long-winded, but I like to take the time with products like this.

Or, check out their Resort collection in their web shop.
