We’ve seen the Low CX bike evolve here at Radavist, so it should come as no surprise that this year’s CX offering is disc-equipped. The LOW CX Mkii is finally ready for pre-order, just in time for ‘cross season. It’s made in house at LOW in San Francisco from proprietary tubing, features internal routing, smooth welds and will clear a 40mm tire. Check out more at Low, read their PR below, pre-order a frame for $2,450 here and don’t miss the previous galleries over there on the left.
When Race Face bought Easton a few years back, the company received a thorough makeover, resulting in the EC90 cranks. These hollow carbon crank arms are made in Canada, feature a 149mm Q-Factor, 30mm spindle, are optimized for 2x or 1x performance and come with a bottom bracket. Make sure you check out the EC90 SL cranks for your next ‘cross build.
Centerlock disc, XD driver compatible, thru axles, tubeless-ready, 29mm wide and 28mm deep. These details a few years ago might have had more in common with a XC MTB wheel than a ‘cross or all road bike but alas, technology has changed and specs are slowly migrating over from flat bars to drop bars. The Reynolds ATR, or all terrain road, wheels are carbon fiber wheels meant to take you from paved roads to dirt and vice versa. They’re light and resilient but best of all, they won’t bottom out your credit card. (more…)

Chas has a number of these Cannondale track bikes that have been thrashed on the street over the years, resulting in some pretty heft beausage. Since this one in particular has a few dents, he decided to turn it into a doodle bike and sell the frameset, along with this hand painted disc wheel. Both are for sale now at his webshop, so head over to see more details.
Through using last year’s Kickstarter to reinvigorate the Fat Chance brand, the 2016 Yo Eddy offerings are able to be made a little more customized. From simple things like custom paint, or a rigid fork to more complex details like cable routing, dropper post options, single speed dropouts, Di2 routing and more. If you’ve got an idea, you can consult Fat Chance to make your Yo Eddy a dream build.
Holler at Fat Chance for more information!
It’s been a while since we’ve sold a new jersey or kit on the Radavist but next week, two new designs are going to be available for pre-order. Here’s a look at the first jersey, illustrated by Kyler Martz and made in Los Angeles by Endo Customs. These, along with a new complete kit will be available for pre-order to ensure everyone can have a chance to purchase one.

This is the seventh layout of the Radavist 2016 Calendar, entitled “Descent Shadow.” Shot with a Leica M240 and a 21mm Super‑Elmar in Smygehuk, Sweden.
Ending a brevet like the Sverigetempot with a ripping descent through golden, rolling hills was an exciting experience for our troop of heroes, only heightened by the falling sun and the feeling of having just completed 2100kms in 156 hours.
NEW: There’s also a mobile image uploaded for anyone wanting a mobile phone background each month. August’s image is from Sweden, featuring tall aspen trees and long shadows. Click here to download Augusts’s Mobile Wallpaper.

House’s Velo Jersey, rendered in this olive drab, black and white wool, is one of my all-time favorite wool jerseys. These euro-cut jerseys will last a lifetime, as long as you follow House’s car instructions: Cycle regularly, hang to dry, repeat often, do not bleach or Strava. See more at House!
Editor’s note: Jarrod recently attended Saddle Drive, Quality Bicycle Product’s outdoor showcase for their forthcoming products. This included components, accessories and complete bicycles from brands like Salsa, Surly and All City. Jarrod spent two days there, photographing new components on day one and on day two, complete bikes. Here’s that gallery.

Northstar at Tahoe is the perfect venue to showcase product, for day two I set aside most of my day between seminars to shoot some of the new bikes from Salsa, Surly and All City, Including the new BigBlock, Warbird Carbon/Alloy and Woodsmoke 27.5+. If I could I would’ve stayed the rest of the week just to be able to swing a leg over all of the other bikes. Check out the gallery for some of my favorites.
