SOLD OUT AGAIN! Olive Drab and Desert Tan Radavist Bottles
ODandDesertTan-2

We’ve restocked the Olive Drab and Desert Tan Radavist bottles and will be shipping these out next week. Be advised, however with the holiday season, these might take a while to get to you, especially if you live outside the US.

Olive drab is a timeless color and one that, as you can tell, is not going anywhere. It, paired with desert tan, are personally my two favorite tones. We kept it simple this round, with two bottles in two colors, with one design. In stock now in high numbers and shipping worldwide. Scoop up a pair of Radavist Olive Drab or a pair of Radavist Desert Tan bottles below for $20 a pair + shipping.

*Please note, if you order two sets, you have to pay for shipping twice because of the postage rate doubling when the package increases that much (over 12″ long) in size. I’ve tried to bring the rate down but it won’t work. Apologies.

**Also, we had some international orders returned from our local office, so if you’re still waiting on your previous order, they went out yesterday. Again, apologies.

SORRY SOLD OUT!

Strawfoot Dopey Bear Bottles
IMG_5875_1024x1024

Did you know the bear on the California flag is the last grizzly said to have lived in this state? Monarch, the supposed last grizzly, is even on display at the California Academy of Sciences. The California Grizzly was designated the official state animal in 1953, over 25 years since the last known grizzly was shot and killed. Yes, there’s a sordid history with the good ol’ brown bear in this state, so when I see something like the Strawfoot Dopey Bear bottles come around, I’m glad I can crack a smile. It’s like Smokey’s dopey cousin!

Pick up a set, which includes an olive drab (day) and a manzanita (night) bottle, at Strawfoot.

Keep Your On the Bike Bevs Cold with the Miir 32oz Howler
LeicaM-462

Since the authors of the Radavist always have a camera on them, we’re going to try to provide more brief, succinct reviews of everyday products. This one’s been a staple in my car camping equipment for a while, though I never thought to use it on the bike. That is until I recently discovered that it fits in a Looney Bin.

The 32oz Insulated Howler by Miir keeps your beverages cold for a day (I’ve tested it) and hot for 12 hours, depending on how often you open it up. This thing is solid, made from stainless steel and consequently it’s a bit heavy but on a touring bike or townie bike, that’s kinda irrelevant, especially when having an icy cold drink at the top of a climb is of the utmost importance.

To give you an idea about it’s size, it’s 11″ tall, 3.5″ in diameter with a 2.5″ opening, complete with a flip top. You can fit it in a Loony Bin, a Widefoot Liter Cage, or any other “cargo cage.” It’s available in black or silver and in stock now at Miir.

San Francisco has something for every cyclist. If you’re into road riding, there’s plenty to fill the afternoon with hairpin turns that bank into the fog. Or if gettin’ dirty is more your liking, the ribbons of brown pow await.

Chris McNally has illustrated the “skinny” and the “dirty” in two bottles for Spurcycle. In stock now and ready to ship!

Abloc Bottles Offer an Easier Access
home-full-width-2-image

Just because something isn’t technically broken, doesn’t mean you can’t attempt to make it better. That’s what Abloc is doing with their new bottles. Their uniquely shaped design offer easier access to cages through using unique tapers. This is particularly handy with mountain bikes where cage access is limited by shocks or cables and with smaller frames where riders find it difficult to even fit a bottle in the first place. If you like to put bottles in your jersey pocket, the taper makes that easier too.

I gotta admit, this looks interesting and even though I’ve never had a problem with my bottles in King Cage Iris cages, I can see how this design would assist in many of the aforementioned scenarios.

Retail is $12 a pop and in stock now. See more at Abloc.
