“Made in Australia” is not something you see on many of the bikes here on the Radavist, but when that slogan does pop-up, It’s always worth it. Mark from Prova Cycles and Andy White from FYXO met after Andy lurked on the #29+ hashtag on Instagram, landing him on Mark’s own MTB, from there, the two began chatting and Andy began documenting some of his bikes, the latest being this Razzo Road… See more at FYXO!

Part two lead us to ride the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Metal Ray as our spiritual leader (or father as we now call him). The Grand Canyon was a dream come true.
An extra special trip because I was on my very new, gently sparkling Evasion frame from Crust Bikes, which had arrived from Crust HQ all built up ready to shred. The Limp Dick stem and Salsa Cowchippers combo is making me feel like a wizard up on 7/10 difficulty terrain. (more…)

The Australian Crust Van Tour
Photo and words by Jorja Creighton
Touring plans can be dismantled on the fly and made better, sure there is glory in the hard yakka, but when you are out for two weeks, just looking for the good times … Chase the rainbow and good trails. Turn off that path if it looks rosier, you’re on holidays! That’s what the #crustvantour did, and boy did we find the rainbow.
We set out to ride half of the east coast of Australia. From Brisbane to Sydney over the month that Kurt and Raymond were in town from America. Half the crew riding on Crust Bikes, it was a Crust Tour after all; a step through extra small hot-pink Evasion, an eXtra cycle converted Evasion, a Crust Romanceür, and a fresh burgundy Scapegoat that Kurt was riding. The other half of the crew riding a Surly, a custom Moustache build, a pub bike and Jones bike. We can’t all be Crust lucky. (more…)
If you’re in Melbourne, or close enough to make the trip, I highly recommend attending the 2017 Melburn Roobaix. I was there in 2014 and I wish I could make it back another round. Registration is open now, so head to Melburn Roobaix for more information!
Don’t let the man keep ya from having a good time. Man, the cops are tough on cyclists down in Australia!
This one’s great! See more from this Australian getaway at FYXO.
Our buddy Jeff Curtes is an exceptional photographer and part of the Speedvagen family. Living in Sydney means ‘cross season is here and this season he’s racing for MAAP, an Australian apparel company. When Jeff told me about his new team bike, I requested some photos. It sounded like an awesome build with Di2, a race geometry and no bottle bosses. Yeah…
I can’t even begin to paraphrase Jeff’s words, so check them out below, along with more photos! (more…)
To celebrate the Spring Classic, FYXO down in Melbourne organizes the Melburn Roobaix, quite possibly the most fun you can have on a bike, on cobbles, in Melbourne. Tickets for the event are now online at FYXO and you can see the Radavist’s Reportage from two years ago in the archives…

Melbourne is a special place for me, with its unique riding and exceptional local cyclists. Recently, the Vanilla Workshop and Speedvagen took to the road, er air, to hop Down Under for an Australian Fit Tour in Sydney and Melbourne. Behind the lens in the latter was Andy White from FYXO who captured some great moments from Sacha and company’s time at Shifter Bikes and on the streets.
