One of the best FYXO jerseys is now available. Introducing the Carrefour.
“French for crossroads / intersection. This design is a collision between FYXO colours and the Mapei cubes synonymous with Paris-Roubaix thanks to their doping dominance in the 90s.
Melburn’s cobbled back alleys are thousands of miles from the stone farm roads of Northern France, but at speed and with the ringing of cowbells, the bumpy experience is the same.
If you are ever at the crossroads, always go North. Hell awaits you.”
Pick one up here!
I love it when two legit companies (err personalities?) come together on a straight-forward and simple product. Bike Jerks (aka Jeff the Party Boy) and Twin Six probably worked out the design for this jersey over a case of beer and a bottle of Jack. Or on a cross ride. Or… who knows. However it came together, I’m stoked for both of them.
Scoop up one or five of the Bike Jerks Twin Six jerseys here and check out a photo of a bear at the Bike Jerks clubhouse below.
Sorry for the slow morning. I had to go ride this morning to shake off the jetlag. While I was jamming out with some friends, I wore my new TSH Shark Tooth Cap. As I sat at the top of one of the steepest climbs in Austin, I couldn’t help but appreciate its radness. Now, I am no hero but TSH’s products make me smile. That’s worth something.
Without a doubt, green is a color of spring…
I’ve been a supporter of Search and State since I first caught wind of their operations in New York City. Their S1-A jersey is a staple in my daily rotation (see my older product review here) and now, the S1-S bibs have been providing me with comfortable rides on all my bikes. S&S’s line is minimally branded, made in New York City from technical fabrics and is far from your standard cycling apparel.
So far, I’ve logged about 10 rides in the shorts, washed them, hung them out to dry and even dried them on medium heat. They still look brand new and they hold their black dye. I know the price might seem a little steep, but bibs are something you’ll wear much more than a jersey. Plus, they’re each made by hand in NYC and domestic production is a little more expensive for a reason.
As far as fit is concerned, I’d rate their sizing a bit like a club cut. If you’re unsure which size to get, go down. I usually wear an medium or large in club bibs and XL in race cut. Here, I’m wearing a large and the fit is comfortable, without being restricting. What I’m most impressed with though is the detailing and how soft the fabric feels. That and they look great with any jersey…
While this particular color-pairing looks great on the road, it also beckons for the ‘wood, so I took to the trails yesterday afternoon before shooting these photos. Check out my thoughts on these two garments in the narrated Gallery.
