Search and State: New Leg Warmers
SAS_legwarm-01

Spring is here but that doesn’t mean warm weather has followed suit just yet. Search and State has you covered. Literally. Now you can wear their gear from heat to toe, or ankles rather, with their new Leg Warmers.

Made from a heavier weight fabric than their famous Arm Warmers, the Leg Warmers feature a brushed back and secure zipper closure. They’re still lightweight enough to be removed and stowed in your jersey pocket.

Like all SAS apparel, the S1-LW are made in New York City and are in stock now at Search and State.

Dream ér Stage Race Leaders Jersey

My personal favorites are the Thin Stripe and Dots Jerseys as well as the Thin Stripe Socks and the Chubby Bobcat Pocket T.

What Makes the Vanilla Workshop and Speedvagen Move
AU6T1570

While the public may know about the Vanilla Workshop and Speedvagen, they might not know the inner-workings or exactly how the two brands operate under one roof. There’s a misconception that Sacha White runs the whole show with maybe one or two other people. When in reality, it takes a whole team to keep things moving.

Recently, the Vanilla Workshop and Speedvagen shared a little insight to help people better understand what really makes them move. Read on below!

Kitsbow: It’s All About the Base

Brands don’t often take the time to offer insight into their inner workings, so when they do, I take note. Kitsbow just posted an interview of sorts with Charlie Cronk, their lead designer about base layers. Head on over to Kitsbow for more.

2015 NAHBS: Silca’s Custom Paint Series Pumps
2015 NAHBS: Silca's Custom Paint Series Pumps

If there is any pump worthy of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, it’s the Silca Superpista Ultimate Floor Pump. These puppies are hardly your standard-issue shop pump. For starters, they’re machined in Indianapolis, Indiana, using the highest quality materials including race car engine hosing. Silca then dumped the standard issue +/-5% industrial gauge for a +/-1% laboratory grade gauge that reads from 0-160 psi. There’s also a stainless chuck and a magnetic bed, keeping it in place when not in use. All this with a rosewood handle and weighing in at 7lbs.

Anyway, back to NAHBS and Silca’s presence there. New for 2015, Silca is offering their pumps at a paint-grade finish, along with various gauge and hose colors, allowing for customization. What you’re seeing here are a few examples they had on deck with them at NAHBS. From a Pegoretti-painted (center) to a classic Martini racing Silca (right) and even half of a his/hers pairing (right), you can see the options are endless.

I felt like giving these unique pumps a treatment on par with the unique bicycles I shot at NAHBS. Contact Silca for more information and I can’t wait to see what people come up with.
