All-City: Chevron Bibs and Jersey in Stock
TDTAC_03

Photos by Kyle Kelley

Male models have it tough. People throw a new kit on you, put a bike under your legs, and send you flying down a fire road. Sean from Team Dream has been known to turn a trick for money once and a while, although sometimes the trick turns him. At least I think that’s what happened on this All-City kit photoshoot gone bad.

Still, Kyle shot some great photos of him anyway – and they’re probably better this way! Head to All-City for specs on the Chevron bibs and Chevron jersey, in stock now through your local dealer.

Head over to the All-City Flickr for more gnarness!

As the Crow Flies

I love videos like this for the scenery and roads, but at the same time, I feel like everyone is always saying the same thing in them. Just once I want the video’s landscapes to do the talking. Nothing against this video in particular, of course.

That said, this looks like an awesome ride.

Monster Cross It: WTB’s Nano 40c Tire
Beefier rubber on my Geekhouse.

Anyone who hangs their cross bike on the wall when season ends is missing the point. A cyclocross bike is one of the most well-rounded rides you can own. I’ve said countless times before that my Geekhouse Mudville is my favorite bike I own. If only because I’ve made so many fond memories while riding it, in pain, covered in sweat, hating life, on a ride, not racing it.

For some reason, I never once thought to beef up my bike post-season. Well, I did, but I couldn’t fit my Bruce Gordon Rock and Road tires on it – the derailleur hanger clamp gets in the way. That was well over a year ago however.

Ok, the real reason why I never monster cross’d my cross bike is because there aren’t a whole lot of 40c cross tires on the market. In fact, just the other day I was planning on buying some of Surly’s 41c Knard tires when these 40c WTB Nano tires showed up in the mail.

Ride Along: Crihs and His Legor Singlespeed Cross
Ride Along: Crihs and His Legor Singlespeed Cross

As we continue our “Hot Boyz of Cycling” series – that’s what I’m calling it anyway – I caught up with “Dominican Crihs” in Los Angeles en route to a local unsanctioned cross race. Which he lost to Hern if I recall. His Legor is one of my favorite singlespeed cross bikes I’ve had the chance to photograph. Crihs is a good friend of mine and one who is always quick to call me out on whatever he so pleases, so I put him on a spot a bit.

Ride Along: Tyler Nutter of Team Yacht Club

I feel like I’ve known Tyler for years, even though that’s mostly because I’ve probably shipped a ton stickers, kits and shirts to him. We also have a few mutual friends in NYC and Austin, so there’s a lot of overlap.

Back when Tyler first moved to Austin, we went on a few cyclocross rides and I was impressed at his bike control. Riding cross bikes in Austin, on the trails, is treacherous but Nutter held his own. Last night, while testing out the Fuji X-T1, I interviewed Nutter for a Ride Along post. Check it out below!

Rubber Side Up 03

Photo by Kyle Kelley

Last Friday, after posting Tom Robertson’s photo, I wanted to kick myself. There should be a Rubber Side Up post each week. The easiest way to select them would be to encourage you to tag #TheRadavist on your photos via Instagram, but I would encourage you to take the time to shoot a new photo, not just tag all your old shots. Any bike is cool, just try to make it unique.

Or. If you have photos in a hoard drive, send them over

You can only send YOUR photos or photos YOUR friends shot of YOU. I need a photographer’s name and any appropriate links. If you don’t follow those two rules, I’ll just delete the email. Don’t worry, if you send one over, I saw it, no need to follow up!
