There are insuations that I make millions of dollars a year from the cycling industry for posting high-end, limited edition, wank-resistant kits, jackets, hubs, spokes and bar tape. It’s true and Manual for Speed pays me so much money that I’m the literal Scrooge McDuck of the industry, diving into pools of Chris King headsets and PAUL Touring Cantis.
Or… I just like what companies are doing and decide to post their products, regardless of how outrageous they are. I kinda wanna wear one of these jerseys to BRUNCH BRO (sorry Emi).
Scoop up one of these completely ridiculous but somehow necessary 2014 Tour de France Manual for Speed extravaganza jerseys at Garmin Slipstream for a end of July delivery.
Manual For Speed in collaboration with Argonaut Cycles and Speedvagen present Reach For The Dream… What is Reach for the Dream? See more below!
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.
See the full Parallax kit offerings over at Mash!
I have no idea what these photos have to do with cyclocross but I love it! Manual for Speed gets weird with NYC Velo, Castelli and Evan Murphy. I love the selfie photo!

I can get behind this for sure:
“We all want to help. Castelli has teamed up with SlipStreamSports and OpenHeartCO to raise money for the United Way’s Foothills Relief Fund.
Buy a jersey and you will help. All proceeds after the production cost of the jersey go to the fund.
The beloved Poler Stuff “furry camo” pattern is back. This time, themed for the approaching fall and winter seasons. Pre-order a fall-colored or winter-colored kit now, at Castelli until September 6th!
Straight from the Speedbloggen:
“Army green has been one of Speedvagen’s core colors for, well, since the very first prototype I made back in 2006. I love the the icon of militarism and the toughness that the color represents juxtaposed by the goofiness of racing your brains out and crashing cross bikes in the mud with your friends. I’ve wanted to do an army green kit for a long time but as I started to dig into the design I was conflicted: On the one hand, you have all of this space that you can fill with words and logos; get all bilboarded up, right? But I kept coming back to the idea of a uniform. A uniform is clean, crisp, balanced, minimal. This kit doesn’t need a lot of shit on it to get noticed in the peloton and for that matter, the more I put on it, the less it really says.
We wanted to offer something special to our Speedvagen family and friends. Offering the team kit up for you all seemed like just the way to do that. We’ll be taking orders for two weeks only and we won’t be keeping any back stock. This means that only a handful of you will have the kit, well, you and our 6 team members. We’re planning to offer a fall/winter kit too, something a little warmer for cross and getting in base miles.
The jacket and vest, originally designed by Jeremy Dunn (of Embrocation fame) are an abstract design in our signature blue, army green, and red with an explosion of Speedvagen text and sheilds. The answer to the abstract outer layers is the strictly business base kit in army green with color bands as punctuation on the sleeves, legs, and collar with Speedvagen shields enblazoned on the chest, back, and legs. We also have a new Team cap that you can add to your order.
Castelli makes some of the best apparel available and has for over 100 years. Plus they’re right down the road from us, so it only makes sense that we work with them for our racing gear. All of the clothing is made here in the Northwest and the items we’ve selected for you are the top of the line of what Castelli has to offer. Wear them well. To place an order please visit the order page.
