Head over to Mission Workshop for details. If you do go to this event – you’d be crazy not to – do me a favor and give Stinner a high five. That dude is killing it.
This bike is an all-purpose, 1-track gobblin’, trail rippin, rigid, bikepacking shred sled. Built by SF’s Falconer Cycles and designed to carry multiple bags, on front and rear racks, for days on end. Basically, it’s artist Chris McNally‘s new love.
In short, it’s a rigid 29’r, more specifically, it’s a touring bike, designed to take on the real Lost Coast route – more to come with Behind the Redwood Curtain – and still be stable enough to take on trails while loaded.
Loaded with Blackburn Outpost racks, Barrier Universal Panniers and other random Blackburn accessories, this bike did it all. From carrying camping gear to the top of Granite Mountain outside Prescott, to a half-full keg down to the Whiskey Off Road bacon handup spot, Chris had the best tool for the job.
See more of this beaut in the Galley!
Josh from Avery County Cycles finally re-upped his popular Bandit Bottles. These things went FAST at NAHBS, faster than the Bandit himself through back-country roads. Scoop up a pair at Avery County Cycles!
A late night of partying is the segue into a long day of shredding…
This is the fourth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Banquet of Champions”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
No one ever said bike racing was easy, especially the Rouge Roubaix. That event caused carnage across all fields and in doing so, brought out primitive survival instincts. The kind that tell you to keep pushing forwards because there’s an ice cold beverage waiting for you at the finish line.

Man. This night. Handsome Cycles, One on One and Chrome got the hairbrained idea to do a shop bike shred sled race after Frostbike last Saturday. There were many wrecks, kegs were killed, rare whiskeys were consumed, people passed out, people were kicked out and yes, fun was had.
Minneapolis goes hard… then goes back to the hotel room and drinks more until 4am. See more in the Gallery!
As part of their unveiling for the 2014 cross bike lineup. All City threw a Snow Ball on Friday night during Frostbike. Jello Shots, dancing, free beer and formal wear filled the room at the Eagle Club as people could fondle three new cross bike models.
I ended up waiting for two hours as the shuttle bus returned to the hotel on frozen roads, so I missed out on a lot of fun but when we finally got to the party just before midnight, it was still bustlin’. Check out some photos in the Gallery!
I have no idea what I just watched. It seems to be a viral marketing campaign for some kind of weird 29’r cyclocross hybrid bike with stoppy silver pie plates and colored moving parts. Whatever it is, I like the part with beer.

Look, I hate Las Vegas and I’m not too stoked on Interbike, but being able to hang out with friends the whole time is certainly a high point. Especially these dudes. Magic just happens, like the moment I realized the vuvuzela makes an exceptional beer bong!
