Firefly Bicycles: Cable Knit Mugs
FireflyMug

It’s getting cold out yonder and that means one thing: time to drink warm liquids – even more. My mug-consumption goes through the roof these months with all my hot toddy and coffee intake, so why not mix it up a bit with the new Cable Knit Mugs from Firefly Bicycels? Only $35 at the Firefly Webshop! Warm beverage holders don’t have to cost an arm and a leg!

The 2014 Interbike Super Duper Ginormous Gallery Day 01
at Blackburn!

Interbike. The necessary evil of the industry and the culmination of the year’s energy for me. 48 hours ago and we were in the Sequoias, now, we’re in the towering landscapes of Las Vegas, navigating the halls of the convention, seeing new and interesting products and longtime friends.

In an attempt to make my Interbike coverage as easy to digest as possible, I’ll be doing things a little different. Each day, I’ll upload around 80 photos, with the company’s name in the captions. If you have any questions, ask below and I’ll answer.

Keep in mind, these are products I like and do not necessarily represent everything to see at the show. If you’ve seen something elsewhere that’s worth sharing, holler at me on Twitter, Instagram (@JohnProlly) or in the comments!

The Quick and Easy Tanner Goods Porter Handlebar Bag
Tanner_Bar_Bag-1

When it comes to a touring bike, the randonneur bag or Wald basket will reign supreme for front-end portage, but not every bike has rack mounts. In the case of a classic road bike, or MTB, strap on handlebar bags are the simplest solution to carrying extra cargo around town.

There are countless options, ranging from cordura, to cotton, but for those looking for something a little classier, check out the Tanner Goods Porter Handlebar Bag. I’ve been keen on trying one out since the line was first launched and since using mine for around a month, I’m loving it…

Kinoko and Daily Goods Caps

These look good!

Daily Goods is our rather excellent in store coffee shop, the brain child of  Carter Donnell. We finally made a limited edition collaboration cap, so you can share the love and show your allegiances when it comes to your favourite spot to sup the finest coffee based beverages in all of London town and where to purchase superior cycling goods and apparel. You may also find that this fine piece of Italian made head wear will keep the sun out of your eyes and the rain from disturbing your finely coiffed locks.”

Chris King Tamper at Wright Bros Brew & Brew
ChrisKingTamper_BrewandBrew-7

I’ve always wanted a Chris King tamper, but never had the use for one. A good espresso machine is way out of my budget and besides, I like socializing at coffee shops and supporting the business. I’m lucky to have two shops close by here in Austin, one of which being the Brew & Brew. It’s a half beer, half coffee bar and it just so happened they were in need of a new tamper.

Last week, I brought them a brand new red Chris King Tamper (thanks guys!) and yesterday, during the full nuke sunset, I went by to shoot photos of Megan, the barista using it. I can’t promise epicness, or bikes, but the tamper is damn fine.

Did I mention they have all the colors of the campione del mondo in stock now?
