Ringtail have just re-upped stock on their Breeze Breaker jacket and Breezer vest, as well as introducing their Block Breaker jacket. The two jackets are made from solid, ultra light nylon while the Breezer Vest is perforated on the back allowing for ventilation during those cool autumn mornings. This run has slightly larger wrist openings at the sleeves to make putting them on and taking them off a bit easier.
All of Ringtail’s jackets are made in Los Angeles and are slim-fit. Check out stock and pricing at Ringtail.

I love nesting pouches and zippered wallets, especially for riding. It’s nice to have one place to throw in your Co2, patch kit, multitool, debit card, cash, “safety” stuffs and even your phone. While there are hundreds of options out there, I’m currently using the Strawfoot Ride Wallet and Zip Wallet.
The Ride Wallet fits my Sony RX100mk3, or an iPhone 6, or even a Yashica T4 while the Zip Wallet fits cash, cards and my riding keys. Both are made by hand in Santa Cruz from weather-resistant cordura, a waterproof zipper, ripcord handles and have a secondary pocket on in inside. In stock now at Strawfoot.
Our friends at Strawfoot have been busy making some special kit bags for Grinduro.
I’ve been on the road from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz and I couldn’t roll through town without seeing what Strawfoot has been up to (and to get tacos.) Turns out, they’ve been working hard prepping for Grinduro…

The world of production frame building isn’t limited to road, cross, or MTB frames. There are a handful of individuals who still believe in the domestically-produced, handmade BMX frame. Mike Laird is one of those people. Check out this profile on the BMX pro, welder, machinist, father, and metal head owner of Laird Frame.
You’d better act quick on this one! Yanco’s popular Rambling Roll got a few updates and is now being offered by Silca exclusively ($55). To match the launch is the Pocket Impero ($120), a powerful pocket pump with all the details as the Impero frame pump.
Both in stock now at Silca.
Cait’s first collaboration socks with the Athletic were a huge hit. For those unfamiliar with Cait, she’s a cancer survivor and a purveyor of stoke through a steady dose of encouragement and positivity. Much like her newest socks, she’s a bright and fun woman. Something the cycling industry always benefits from!
