Team Intelligentsia Socks
INTELLISOCKS

As someone who always finds himself with missing cycling socks, I don’t mind picking up novalty “team” socks once and a while, especially from great coffee roasters like Intelligentsia. You do like coffee, right? Thanks for the scoop Kyle!

Fyxomatosis: E61 Mongoose Handle
Mongoose

Espresso is a cyclist’s manna. I once heard someone say “so what does coffee have to do with cycling anyway?”. The E61 is one of the most famous espresso machines. Made by Faema, the team that sponsored Merckx in his early days, when he rode a De Rosa. So what does this have to do with a Mongoose grip on an E61 handle? Absolutely nothing. But it’s rad. Radness made by the Gonz in Melburn.

Follow @Gonzlab on Instagram for more intriguing creations and lots of bad grammar.

Thanks to FYXO for the photo!

Pump Cold Brew

When small companies spring up in a city like LA, people take notice. Throw a little bit of bicycle branding in there and you’ve got a successful business model. Pump Cold Brew is popping up throughout the local shops in LA. If you get a chance, pick up a bottle from Golden Saddle Cyclery.

I Don’t Know What I Love More…

This bike, or this Camera. I’ve been using the hell out of both as of late and while there’s not enough medium format content to make it an official Recent Roll post, there have been some gems coming out of this lens. The biggest challenge has been using this Distagon T* 50mm with its dual focusing rings. That and general exposure. Shooting with a Hasselblad has really changed the way I look at film photography. I don’t see myself picking up my AE-1 for a while.

See some more recent shots below…
