Mission Workshop at 541 Valencia is open!
They’ve cut through the back wall of their warehouse on Rondel alley and expanded to Valencia street, creating what can only be referred to as the Mission Workshop Industrial Complex in the heart of San Francisco.
Join the gang for #FreeCoffeeFriday provided by Bicycle Coffee starting 10AM, Nov. 7th.
Brooks England‘s tradition of making cycling bags dates back as long as their saddles, over 120 years. In the past few years, they’ve been making a huge push for their bags, totally five lines: Heritage, Transit, Utility, Expedition and Cult.
This year, they are bringing more colors to their Utility line. Check out more below.
Inside Line Equipment’s lineup of bags keeps growing by practical leaps. Introducing the ILE Apex Day Pack, a backpack simple enough for your day to day use, yet adaptable for when you need it to do a little more. I love the hydration pack integration! See more at Inside Line Equipment.
I really love what Swift has been producing, especially these small run projects like the Bandito saddle / handlebar bag. It’s a simple solution to tote around random goodies like cameras, food, tubes, clothing, tools and apparently, burritos. Head on over to Swift to see more!
I’ve been using the normal SSCY Tack bag for a day pack during cross races and MTB rides where I have to drive to the trail. Its large size makes it easy to drop helmets, shoes and kits into the main compartment and the smaller pockets hold tools, snacks and other misc items.
What’s best about the Tack is it transforms from a tote to a backpack with just two clamps… I’ll elaborate more when I actually review mine. For now, let’s check out the new Tack Sling Bag.
All the versatility of the Tack, but now, in a sling form, allowing you to strap packages, boxes and yes, wheels to the pack. All of this, made in NYC.

Bikepacking bags have gained a lot of momentum in the market over the past few years and now Blackburn offers up their take on these simple designs. By utilizing a standard dry sack, the Outpost Seat Pack and Bar Roll make it even easier to load and unload your bike, all while remaining secure, even on the most technical singletrack.
See more Outpost products at Blackburn, including their new Cargo Cage and Top Tube bag.
If you were at Interbike and happened to swing by the Mission Workshop / Acre booth, then you took note of these slick black MultiCam messengers bags from the Arkiv line. The black camo bags are fitted with blackened hardware and are made in the USA with a lifetime warranty.
Check out more at Mission Workshop and a few more photos below!
The ever so popular, yet impossible to order Ramblin Rolls are back up for pre-order. That means if you ordered them on the last run, yours is en route.
Head over to Tracko to get on that!
Josh Brede shared his newest video project, entitled Nightfall. Here’s a little background:
““Nightfall” is a speculative commercial that tells the story of a hardworking messenger who depends on his Chrome gear to keep him going. I made this commercial as my senior thesis at Drexel University, to conclude my studies of TV Production. I set out to create a commercial that portrays a brand I love, rely on, and wear every day.
This couldn’t have been possible without the amazing amount of support from my production & post production crew. You guys seriously rule.”
Here’s another product from Swift Industries that caught my eye: the Scout’s Motto Tool Roll. Made in Seattle, Washington and retails for $37. See more information at Swift and a few more photos at the Swift Flickr.
