A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
All-City’s got a new kit in their catalog, an homage to a classic Merckx jersey. These kits are made by Pactimo from their Ascent Air 2.0 jersey and Ascent Vector Pro bibs with a retail of $105 for the jersey and $119 for the bibs.
This kit is in QBP’s catalog now, which means there’s no pre-order or wait times. Just holler at your local All-City dealer and see more photos and information at All-City.
All-City began as an urban cycling brand, with the Big Block being their flagship model. Over the years, the brand has expanded from track bikes to touring bikes, all with one thing in mind: speedy transport around and out of the city. In a lot of ways, All-City’s catalog grew with their customers. People that began with track bikes picked up road bikes and cross bikes eventually. A few years back, they celebrated their Big Block with a fifth anniversary model, painted in a pearlescent silver to white fade.
Omar is a dear friend. Someone I trust with a straight razor and sharp scissors. He owns Vinny’s Barber Shop in Los Angeles and apparently has great style both on and off the bike. Which makes for a perfect Merckx Mondays entry. Check out Omar and his All City Mr. Pink below! (more…)
This bike should need no introduction to the readers of this site. It’s All-City’s flagship road model, made from Columbus Zona tubing and available this year in a classic throwback magenta and pink paint job. The Mr. Pink is one of the best steel road bikes on the market. It’s affordable and capable with the only limitations being those which you set yourself.
So what drew me to review this beaut? For the first time since this bike’s launch, I felt drawn to it in more than just an aesthetic attraction. All-City as a brand has hit the point now where they’re improving on their current catalog piecemeal, rather than focusing on launching entirely new models. At least that’s my observation and the Mr. Pink got some much-needed upgrades. (more…)
I’m really excited about this review. The All-City Mr. Pink has been on my “must” list for some time now and to finally get a lot of miles and a lot of climbing in on one has been highly enjoyable. It’s with a heavy heart that I have to send this bike back today, but the sunset photos this evening are looking great.
If you’re in LA and are lookin to get your hair cut, make sure you check out Vinny’s Barber Shop. Why? Because Omar is a righteous dude. Head over to the All-City blog to read up on this stallion of a man and see more of Kyle’s photos!
