While my favorite go-to bibs for MTB riding are the Giro New Road bib undershorts, my new favorite non-bibshorts are the Kitsbow Merino Base Shorts.
I wore them every day on the Oregon Outback and I’ve begun using them exclusively during short and sweet MTB rides. Because the main material is merino wool, they dry fast, feel soft, keep you cool in warm weather / warm in cold and don’t get super funky like synthetic blends tend to. They’re great for camping or touring as well, because they’ll dry faster than synthetic shorts.

Male models have it tough. People throw a new kit on you, put a bike under your legs, and send you flying down a fire road. Sean from Team Dream has been known to turn a trick for money once and a while, although sometimes the trick turns him. At least I think that’s what happened on this All-City kit photoshoot gone bad.
Still, Kyle shot some great photos of him anyway – and they’re probably better this way! Head to All-City for specs on the Chevron bibs and Chevron jersey, in stock now through your local dealer.
Head over to the All-City Flickr for more gnarness!
Cafe du Cycliste’s new spring lineup looks great. For those hot months, the Lucienne Lightweight jersey’s got your back but my favorite piece is the Antoinette bib and base layer combination.

Is this trap, or dubstep? I don’t even know anymore but I like the new Funeral Cycling kits.
Tenspeed Hero’s new spring line looks great. With products for men and women. Like, bibs designed specifically for women. Not just bibs made for men that women have to wear. Head over to Tenspeed Hero for bibs made for men, women and socks made for feet.
SoCal-based, bad boyz / bad girlz of cycling, Ritte have teamed up with POC, one of the most unique cycling helmet and apparel companies to form a whole line of collaborative products. Coming soon are POC + Ritte gloves, bibs, jersey and yes, a scarf. The whole collection looks great and I can’t wait to see photos of the team wearing this line.
See more at POC and check your local dealer for availability. This release is slated for mid-April.
Kyle over at Tracko has a whole lotta new stock in his shop, just in time for payday. His Splinter Camo Bibs and Warmers match the new Teardrop camo cap and yeah, those Ramblin’ Rolls are in stock (for 3…2…1…).
Also, finish your ride with a COKE!
In stock now at Trackosaurus Rex.
This is like straight out of a Calvin Klein ad from the 80′s! Tenspeed Hero’s new spring summer collection is in stock now. I particularly like the Happy Raindrop bottles and all the women’s jerseys.
