SOLD OUT: The Radavist Slipmats v2

They’re back! This time, in a simpler design. These are printed on thick black felt with the Radavist rune text in tan. I’ve upped the run to 200 this round, so everyone should have a chance to pick one up.

There aren’t discounts for multiple slipmats, because the shipping goes up with each additional one. If you order 2, they’ll both come in the same package. They’re $12 shipped in the USA ONLY. Because of the size of the mailer these come in, shipping internationally is almost $20. Sorry!

If you’re in Los Angeles, Mark at Vacation Vinyl has a few in stock as well. Scoop one, or a pair up below. Sorry SOLD OUT.

More Geoff McFetridge!

First things first: how did you start riding road bikes?

It was a slow-burn thing for me. I moved to LA, and I couldn’t help but notice the occasional rider travelling through the city, exploring and traversing. I got a road bike and just rode alone all the time, and I dug in to the aesthetics and feelings of riding a bike. The interesting thing is that this was around the time of Armstrong, so cycling was booming, but just not in the way that I was interested in. I mean, I loved to watch the Tour and so on, but it wasn’t why I rode a bike.
