What on Earth is this? Looks like some kind of purple rain… I wonder whose fork that is? Death Spray, once again delivering the goods.
“Different dudes. Same agenda. At least sort of, anyway. Bring XC champ Russell Finsterwald and weekend-warrior champ Chris Dewar together to some posh digs in Palm Spring, California, and some stuff is going to happen. Late-morning shuttle or pre-dawn pedal, it doesn’t really matter—although the dawn-patrol, uphill, asphalt commute to the Idyllwild trails deserves a nod—when two like-minded mountain bikers come to check out some exciting new trails, limits are pushed and some dirt is sure to fly.”
Rock Shox’s new RS-1 is getting tons of love over at their video department.
See some photos from this video shoot below!
This is the fourth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Banquet of Champions”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
No one ever said bike racing was easy, especially the Rouge Roubaix. That event caused carnage across all fields and in doing so, brought out primitive survival instincts. The kind that tell you to keep pushing forwards because there’s an ice cold beverage waiting for you at the finish line.

David at Death Spray Custom does it again! This killer neon fork looks great on Marco’s Cinelli with ENVE and SRAM Red. Head over to the Death Spray Custom blog for more photos.

I know where this photo was taken and I can say that these guys most definitely don’t need a Garmin to get there. Check out the new No Garmin No Rules Shirts!
Let’s be honest, there aren’t a whole lot of innovative moves being made in the world of packbike bag design. So when I saw this new prototype saddle bag system from Porcelain Rocket, I got pretty stoked on it. There’s nothing worse than digging through a bag, as it’s attached to your bike.
This looks interesting! See more at Porcelain Rocket’s Flickr!
Today, in the wake of hundreds of elaborate April Fools jokes, Santa Cruz popped this bad boy up on their site. Introducing the new Nomad 27.5 shred sled. That turquoise and pink bike is so pissed off! See more specs, a killer video and photos below.
I’ve always loved those 14R Royce track ends and I’m stoked to see the Foot Down celebrating them.
“I hand screened these prints myself on super thick A3 sized paper. The first 25 orders will be hand numbered and signed, they have a top secret defining feature that won’t be on the rest.
Get a bit of fixed gear up on your wall, buy yours from the Foot Down Shop“
As with all the Team Dream Bicycling Team products, Sean really nailed this Mondrian-homage cap! Swoop at Team Dream in this and one other colorway.

Here’s a feel good flick from Rock Shox, featuring that RS-1 inverted fork:
“They’re the future of XC mountain biking—in more ways than one. Kate Courtney and Russell Finsterwald are classic overachievers: She’s a NICA alumnus gone World Cup hopeful (and is a Stanford undergrad in her spare time), and he’s a former U23 National and Pan Am champ ready to compete in 2014 at the pinnacle of our sport. Stripped of team logos, and outside the boundaries of course-marking tape, however, both are simply mountain bikers with a passionate penchant for new trails and eye-opening adventures.”
Basically, this video makes me want to go ride some more desert.
