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.
On August 24th – 30th, the Speedvagen Fit Tour is headed to Australia with rides, parties, and most importantly fitting sessions with Sacha White, owner and lead builder at The Vanilla Workshop. For the Sydney stop, Speedvagen will be partnering with the Rapha Cycle Club and Shifter Bikes in Melbourne.
To schedule a fit for your own Speedvagen with Sacha White in Australia contact Speedvagen.
I look at Baum’s work like many people look at brands that are constantly introducing new “colorways” or styles. Nike, for instance. Or New Balance, rather. Same shoe, different color and yet it evokes a Pavlovian response. Seriously, how many times have we looked at a titanium Baum frame here on the site? They still get me every time. For more drool-worthy, Australian goodness, check the Baum Flickr.
Hey Aussies! Get ready, the 2015 Speedvagen Australia Fit Tour is heading your way!
“Sacha White and The Vanilla Workshop are preparing to take off on the second leg of the Speedvagen Fit Tour. This trip takes Speedvagen to Australia, specifically Sydney and Melbourne. In addition to fitting new Speedvagen customers, there will be rides in each city as well as evening events open to the public. Fresh off the success of the California Fit Tour, extending the program is a natural progression, reaching customers that would normally not make it to Portland for a personal fitting with Sacha.
There are limited spots available, as each fit takes 2-3 hours. Spending this much time working with each customer allows Sacha to understand each rider’s unique strengths, needs, and limitations. The end result is your dream bike, completely tuned to your riding style. Learn more about the Australia Fit Tour or schedule a fit session with Sacha here.”
When a guy like Jeff Curtes shoots photos and writes a bit of copy, you don’t paraphrase his work. Sure, you edit it down a bit but it’s best left untouched. When he contacted me to share a recent photoshoot for Australia’s MAAP, I very much obliged to let him do just that. Read on for the full account and a selection of photos from Jeff’s recent shoot on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia… (more…)
It’s crazy to think that the Melburn Roobaix is in its 10th year and that registration is already almost open… This year, each registrant gets free access to the Melbourne Custom Bicycle Show as well as a commemorative cap. I gotta say, I’ve got the itchin’ to pick up a ticket again.
Head to Melburn Roobaix for more information and to Coffee Supreme in Melbourne on April 18th and 19th to register early.
Down Under, it’s the middle of summer and frame builders like Gellie Custom are in full-on production, keeping their custom customers happy. Gellie makes road, track, tourer, tandem, ‘cross and MTB frames. Did I leave anything out?
Andy White of FYXO recently visited Gellie’s shop in Kinglake and photographed some of his recent builds, which you’ve got to check out. Head over to FYXO for the full scoop.
