At this year’s NAHBS, I knew something. Deep down inside, amidst all the insane custom bicycles, I know that Cielo was onto something with their new Road Racer Di2. The custom market is amazing, don’t get me wrong, but the domestic production market is far too overlooked.
The Tracko “Snow Splinter” pre-order closes today. I am really stoked on this kit, because it’s so subtle. Subtle like Kyle’s gentle touch. Pre-order a jersey for men, jersey for women, bibs for men and shorts for women at Tracko’s web shop!

Hey guys, sorry for the delay, I wanted to make sure I had enough stem caps and stickers to put inside each order before the kits went out. They’ll be going out this week. Those who are emailing me, asking about a pre-order. It’ll go up Friday. I wanted to get this first run shipped out.
I will be doing women’s jerseys and would consider doing cycling shorts (alternative for women to wearing men’s bibs), if there is enough of an interest. So, if you’re a woman and would prefer shorts, over men’s bibs, let me know so I can add a line item.
Thanks for your patience! Hugs and kisses.
It’s not every day you see a disc-ready road frame built entirely from steel. Usually, the client will spec a carbon fork and a 44mm head tube. Not on this bike though. The details overfloweth at the Bishop Bikes Flickr!
… and all I can focus on is the seat tube cluster!
I have these and they look so damn good… I even gave FYXO the Eyeshades, since I couldn’t pull them off.

The photos within this essay are by no means recent, but they offer a very intimate look into Portland’s framebuilding culture. I love the old portraits of Ira Ryan and Jordan Hufnagel.

Everyone has a clever 4th of July post up right now, but I couldn’t find a better image to represent the exuberance of America’s independence AND the Tour (what is up with this?!)… Manual for Speed does it again. Pick one of these up at Manual for Speed and eat a damn hot dog for me, America.
… and drink some bourbon. And blow stuff up. And get sunburnt. And listen to records. And ride a made in the USA bike!
So… I scheduled that Rizzle video for today, thinking it was for yesterday (I’m still in OZ, where we’re about 17 hours ahead of you in the States) and I forgot to mention all the other Team Dream products in stock… Personally, I like the FFF kits, but there’s also CMYK socks, new SWRVE collaboration shorts – these rule – and other products.
See some more photos below and the full scoop at Team Dream!
If there was anyway I could be there, I would be! Search and State‘s NYC to LA trip looks like it’s been completely insane. Rider Joseph Holway has ridden for the past 20, some-odd days from the SAS factory in New York to Los Angeles to deliver a jersey. It’s a wild concept that has my interest piqued.
Los Angeles, head to GSC on the 1st of July and welcome Joseph, LA style. Get that man a drink and take him to Smoggy!
