This one’s for the Aussies! While I was in Melbourne, I met up with Van from Creux Cycling and we pedaled around for a bit. He was wearing one of his Liberator Bomber Jackets and they just went up on the Creux site. I had a Campagnolo jacket that was very similar, but lacked a lot of the detailing that this one has. The drop-down flap, shown in the second photo is great because you can tuck it up into the jacket when you’re off the bike. Overall, this is a very stylish piece, with solid construction. It comes in an all-black version and one with cyan accents.
How about a nice change of pace? Let’s leave NAHBS for a second and travel to OZ. Melbourne is a cyclist’s haven for rich, vibrant culture and South Yarra seems to be the epicenter. You’ve got Shifter Bikes, FYXO Hub and Northside Wheelers all in the same area, running completely different businesses and yet, they’re all contributing to the greater good. With big-brand concept stores everywhere, it’s hard to find a shop that shows cycling history and sells part of the insignia that goes along with it.
The golden age of cycling is still alive, but in small circles. Northside Wheelers is a shop that sells cycling apparel and goods. Think of it as a clothing shop for the bike fanatic in your life. From Creux to Rapha, books, magazines, goods and even some vintage apparel, Malachi Moxon over at Northside Wheelers has everything you need to get you styled out for a ride.
