… to the stem cap world, anyway. Here’s that photo from the current issue of Bicycling, featuring the Radavist Raidō Rune cap and many others you’ll recognize.
You wish you had moves like this!
I’ve been trying to pull together a Gallery from all of the summer road trips (and rolls of film) shot this year, but am waiting for the weather to get much worse. Although, it seems everyone’s dealing with record lows.
Regardless, looking at photos like this make me miss sun burns and late sunsets…
Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Kodak Porta 400

Jeff has been shooting a ton of cross races this year and posting them up on Bike Jerks (yes, I pay attention to you, Jeff!) and this one photo struck me as such a rad ‘cross photo. Handups are not a crime!
I hope everyone has a blast racing this weekend.
This is too good! The one and only Richard Sachs went down a list of 15 points in his latest blog post. You’ve gotta head over to read them, for gems like:
“Serial number accidentally banged in askew. Shit. It will look stupid. Fuck it. It’s a handmade bicycle frame that now has extra humanity. Note to self: add an Imperfection Is Perfection DVD to client’s parcel when bicycle is delivered.”
“Dang. The cat wanted to use this on gravel and a 25mm is the largest tire that will fit. I need to pay more attention. I’ll tell him I always use 25mm tires on gravel.” – “I can’t believe folks wait in line for this.” – “I can’t believe people pay me for this.” – “I
hope know the next one will be better.”
“I can’t believe folks wait in line and pay me for this.”
NYC’s John Campo posted this on his Facebook yesterday and I had to share it. These Keith-Haring designed City Cycles jerseys have always been my favorite. A pristine example of less is more with no visible sponsor logos, or flashy colors. Just white space with an original Haring illustration.
It seems some of the original City Cycles members have gotten back together, formed a Facebook Group and have made commemorative t-shirts. I’m not sure when or if they’ll be selling to the public, but I felt like it was worth the share, regardless.
My mind is blown. Thanks for sharing, Team Dream Team!
Virgin, Utah is home to some of the most insane MTB lines in the world and one of the most exhilerating competitions of all time: the RedBull Rampage. Watch it LIVE at RedBull right now!
I finally got all my film back from the #RadGoldenDream road trip that Golden Saddle, Team Dream and I went on. These two photos are some of my favorites and best represent the vibes on the road.
“Ask Sean Talkington how he got his 1970 Volkswagen van ready for a 550-mile road trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, and he and his traveling partners will bust out in laughter — we’re talking good, hearty guffaws.
He changed the oil, and checked the brakes, “but nothing too major,” Talkington says. In other words, hardly anything, and the team that was headed for Interbike on behalf of Mission Workshop and Acre, piled it up with bikes and camping gear (including Talkington’s Tempur-Pedic-style packable mattress), took the gamble and headed for Sin City.”
