Twin Six’s New Standard Rando Frameset
TwinSix-Rando-08

This weekend, we took a look at the Twin Six Standard 29r and already, people are talking about this frame: their Rando frameset.

Traditionally, randonneuring frames have rim brakes, 650b wheels and quill stems, yet Twin Six opts for disc, 700c x 43c (perfect for a tire like the Bruce Gordon RockNRoad) and other modern technologies like PF30BB. Personally, I’d just call this a light touring bike since stylistically, it’s pretty detached from a traditional randonneuring bike.

At any rate, Twin Six’s offerings thus far are affordable, stylish and best of all: METAL.

These will be available as frames only and will retail for around $600 for either black or $650 for green with matching fenders. Due out by the end of 2014…

Twin Six’s New Standard 29r MTB
T6_29erLalonde2

For 2015, clothing company Twin Six is leaping into the frame marketplace, as seen in the 2014 Interbike coverage. My favorite of the bunch is the Standard 29’r. Made from 853 and set up to be customized, in terms of drivetrain options, these new bikes are anything but “standard”. The best thing, is the price… Frame, seat collar, and custom top cap: $900 (MSRP) or frame, matching rigid fork, seat collar, and custom top cap: $1050 (MSRP).

See more details below!

My friends over at Huckberry put together a nice little Guide to Fall Camping and reached out to me for a few pointers. Yes, you have to sign up for their site, but I always find myself ordering random bits from them, including their vast selection of Made in the USA apparel, bags and accessories from brands like Topo Designs, Woolrich and Danner.

Head over to Huckberry to read all about it!

Endo Customs finished up the pre-order for the Radavist Redback kits. They’re shipping them to me here in Austin and will be sent out immediately. Just in time for cross season! Thank you for your patience!

Please note: now is a perfect time to email me with any address changes. Do so by replying to your original Paypal order confirmation email so I don’t have to sort through everything.

I really, really, really appreciate all the support. It means a lot.

Speedvagen National Kit: Japan
unnamed

Having a back-story to your product is just as important as the design itself. Most of the time, anyway. Case in point is the Speedvagen National Kit. When I look at it, I see a brightly-colored ensemble that’s tastefully done, with a dab of wasabi to top it off (that vest!)

For the entire story behind the National Kit and check out the pre-order, head over to Speedvagen.

Check out more product shots below.
