… one is available through your local bike shop and the other is a little more rare. Both are at Golden Saddle Cyclery in Los Angeles. I’m jealous of that Eisentraut buckle, but that Salsa Rattler Buckle might be the coolest thing I’ve seen in recent months.
Everyone was wondering what was up with those crazy All-City Cycles bandanas from the Crash Nationals coverage – where’d that go, anyway? Well, All-City finally added these new Team Dream Bicycling Team collaboration – collabro – bandanas to their stock, so head to your local deal for ordering and to the All-City product page for more information.
Detroit’s Shinola has produced a line of watches for one of the oldest outdoors companies in the US. Filson continues to manufacture almost all of their apparel in the USA, so it would make sense that they would join forces with Shinola, who assembles all their watches at their Detroit facility. These watches look amazing. Dark earth tones like olive drab and many references to classic timepieces really go a long way for the Shinola aesthetic.
While these watches shouldn’t hold the Made in USA label Filson has proclaimed, it’s still a step in the right direction for the United States and domestic production.

You might remember this brand from a few years back. Retired Goods started off as Retired Belts, old bicycle tires that were shredded and made into belts. Now the line has grown into dog leashes and blanket roll carriers. Head over to Retired Goods to see more!
… 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.
From those sick 29r frames, to dry bag backpacks, waxed hats, camping knives and even an ax with a sheath, the Horse Cycles collection is looking great. Congrats Thomas, you’ve got yourself quite the collection.
All of this is made in the Brooklyn, NY, USA.
Mash just restocked a ton of their top caps and added some new products like this WCS Pentagram one to their shop. There’s even a Jumpman bottle… I suggest you high tail it over to Mash’s web shop right away!
Here’s a simple, yet functional (and customizable) product. I definitely have a few jerseys with holes and rust stains from pinning numbers and Race Dots avoid that with a magnetic retention system. See more at Race Dots.
This is great! If you follow @SwiftIndustries on Instagram, you’ve already seen this bicycle medallion:
“Inspired by the Alpine Hikers’ tradition of decorating a walking stick with trail medallions, Swift brings you the adventure-seeker bicycle badge!”

So… what makes a bike pump worth $450? NPR dives into the story on how Silca moved their production to Indianapolis. Listen to the story at NPR and yes, I totally bought one. Ok, I lied, I put it on my credit card.
Is it really worth it? I mean, it’s a pump, but it’s a damn nice pump and it looks great holding down the tiles in my office. Functionality considered, it’s got an impressive amount of machining, akin to a luxury sportswatch and if it means Silca might one day make a $100 USA-made floor pump, I’m all for supporting this industry.
Side note: I’m really enjoying my new photo studio…
