The film For the Love of Mud had a successful launch here in Austin during the Cyclocross National Championships and I’m pretty gutted to have missed it. To help recoup some of the costs of such an overwhelming project, they’ve been running a kit pre-order, which ends tonight – sorry for the last minute notice.
If you’re interested in putting a pre-order in, now’s your last chance. There are men’s and women’s kits, along with vests. Head over to For the Love of Mud to see more.
The new Affinity Pro Team Kit is now available for pre-order, worn by Ash Duban, winner of the Red Hook Crit Milan No 5. women’s race and made by ENDO Customs in Los Angeles. Head over to Affinity Cycles for more information.
Aaron at Stinner Frameworks worked with Sean at Team Dream Team to design a “jailhouse” and “Barbasol” kit. With a black and white, or red, white and blue option, there’s something for everyone. If you’re up to your neck in kits, there are also matching caps.
Head over to Stinner Frameworks for more information.
Poler’s wacky and fun Rainbro kit by Castelli is now in stock. For those who like to rip on the wild side…
I’ve always loved FYXO’s kits and now that ENDO is making them, I’ll love them even more. Andy’s new Override and Burning Rubber kits are perfect for a bit of dirt or nice, smooth, sealed roads. Check out more at FYXO!
ORNOT’s made in California line is expanding just in time for fall riding and cross racing. In stock now are their new Blue Line jersey and limited edition Team Skinsuit. Both of which are looking very sharp.
… and of course, there is accompanying photography to go along with it. See what they’ve put on discount and the rad photos at Tenspeed Hero!

In the world of cyclocross team kits, you can go a few directions. First of which being the standard issue (and most common), three or four colored panels and a bunch of sponsor logos with a pixelated team graphic. Second, you can go just plain crazy. All-over animals, cupcakes, donuts, cats, pandas, whatever. The brighter the better, more is more, instead of less is more.
From the looks of the new TCB Cyclocross kit, they went the third route: classy, with just the right amount of logos and clearly inspired by Cali surf style of the 1980’s. Now, if they only all piled into a Datsun to get to the races. Ok, or a YOTA.

Tokyo Fixed’s kits are always so nicely balanced with patterns and colors. For autumn this year, they designed some new ones and re-issued some classics in new colors. Check them out at Tokyo Fixed. Hey Jess!
I want to call them crazy, but we already know that. Manual for Speed transcends crazy, like space pandas shooting lasers from their eyes… Kinda like these jerseys, for pre-order now, through November 2nd for a late December, early January delivery.
