45NRTH’s Red Wing Leather Wölvhammers

Every so often, a cycling product comes out that kinda blows my mind. Granted, I have no use for these boots, but for those in cold weather conditions looking for some balleur footwear, look no further than these 45NRTH Red Wing Leather Wölvhammers. Made from the same leather as your favorite work boots, insulated with Aerogel and enough details to shake a stick at. See more information at 45NRTH.

Metro Bike Mountains of Madness – Carter Chappell

Metro Bike Mountains of Madness
Words by Carter Chappell

If you have been to LA recently maybe you have noticed the new Metro Bikes that launched last late year. They are essentially three-speed commuters by Trek that are built around a bombproof steel frame and held together by an army of tamper-proof bits. You cannot in any way take the tires off if you get a flat or do much outside of raising and lowering the seat to change the bikes fit in any way. It’s pretty much that last thing you would want to do any sort of long or hilly ride on. (more…)
