FYXO has literally been Since Forever. Watching Andy and Melodie push the FYXO to new boundaries and limits, both in their products and their events, like the Roobaix, is impressive to watch.
When I first met FYXO, he was riding around Japan with a Nikon, shooting photos of bikes and people at CMWC. He may not be aware, but guys like me (and Tracko for that matter) were so stoked on what he was doing in OZ.
I don’t know why I have this long-winded introduction for his new Carrera Pantani kits. Sure, they’re rad but the context is a killer. One of the first photos I ever saw of Andy, he was wearing the vintage version of this design, sitting at a payphone, in Sydney at CMWC.
Why did it take FYXO so long to make the homage kit? I have no idea, but the timing couldn’t be better. It was a pleasure to photograph this kit, in the overcast, Wintery skies on Andy’s local climb, Humevale – where he broke his neck many moons ago…
See some more shots below and scoop up one of the limited edition Carrera Pantani kits at FYXO.
The Team Dream Rizzle Dizzle kits are up for sale today. That’s right, in stock, no pre-order. Head to Team Dream to scoop!
As per “mates” do down here in OZ, you shoot my kit, I’ll shoot yours. FYXO’s latest “Ride On” kit ensemble is now in stock, including the very popular Ride On beanie. Now, I know it’s blazing hot in the US right now, but you can still pick one up and sit on it until winter comes around.
Check out the entire Ride On Ensemble (jersey, bibs, vest and beanie) at FYXO. Also, see a few more photos below. I hear he’s even doing a promotion via his Instagram for orders over $100…
It’s merely by coincidence that I’m in Australia when this kit was completed at Endo Customs in Los Angeles but it worked out perfectly. My original concept for doing the Radavist’s first kit was looking to nature for inspiration, particularly venomous animals you might encounter in the woods or while camping.
The Black Widow spider (USA), or in this case, the Redback spider (OZ) has a far worse reputation than its bite, yet the population fears it. An all-black spider, with a bright red marking on its abdomen will induce your fight or flight response. These kits were an homage to nature’s way of visual coding… The same marking makes it visible in the woods as you’re ripping trails, or on a road climb.
Marked with “Rubber Side Up” on the drive-side leg, the Radavist Jackal on the other, the script logo across the chest, on the lower back and the raidō r-rune from the Elder Futhark on the upper back of the bib, it’s a straight forward, yet classic kit that hopefully will become your staple.
Price is $270 + shipping for the bibs and jersey. I’m only selling this paired for this round. That means you get a medium jersey and medium bibs in each order, along with some stickers and a stem cap. This is not a pre-order, these kits are in stock and will ship this week.
SORRY SOLD OUT but thanks to FYXO for the photos!
Nobody does camo like Tracko! His splinter camo design is one of my favorite kit patterns and now, he’s put a splinter spin on the staple white jersey. It’s summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear snow camo. Bibs, shorts, men’s jersey and a women’s jersey are now up for pre-order.
Pre-order the Snow Splinter Kit from now until July 9th at Trackosaurus Rex.
Castelli makes damn nice cycling kits and Garrett Chow always produces such rad design work for Mash. The Parallax lineup is looking great and I love the concept behind it.

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.
