I’ve known Ben from Fairends since the Freeman Transport days (R.I.P.) and I’ve always loved his made in the USA products. Camp hats are great. Also called twill caps, they’re a staple for any wardrobe. Personally, I prefer black caps, but in the summer, they get soaked in sweat, so I wanted to wait until fall to sell these.
These camp hats are the blackest ever black cotton, with a Jackal embroidered on the front, with grey inlay and the Radavist script text on the back. The construction is super solid and the embroidery is impeccable.

Sean has been busy over at Team Dream, restocking classic designs and working on new products. My personal favorite is the Reverse Rizzle Jersey and matching Compression bibs, but hey, the Chubby Bobcat sweatshirt and By Any Means shirt ain’t bad either!
Hell, while we’re at it, Sean has restocked just about everything. Head over to Team Dream’s web shop for more!

You know what? I think Drew at Engin’s work is some of the finest in the world and when it comes to mountain frames, his titanium trail rockets are the things dreams are made of, so why wouldn’t he be able to make a sick cross bike, or all-road rig? Look at the body language and stance on that thing!
These bikes look the part and although I’ve never ridden one, I bet they rip just fine.

Sometimes, the simplest designs are the ones that become favorites. You don’t even have to explain the inspiration for the new Elevation wool socks from the Athletic. We get it. Available in Plum and Royal.
As you can probably tell, I’ve been really stoked on what Chumba is doing here in Austin, Texas. During MTB season earlier this year, I caught up with Vince, who was riding the first prototype Ursa 29+ MTBs. At the time, Chumba’s production was in Oregon, but in recent months, they’ve moved all production in house, using USA-made tubing…
With the development of the narrow wide chainring, more and more companies are beginning to roll out their own designs for MTB and cross bikes. The newest I’ve come across is Endless, out of Asheville, NC. They machine and anodize everything in the USA and while they currently only offer 104 BCD rings, they do come in an array of colors for 32t or 36t rings.
See more at Endless.
Since moving all of their production from Oregon to Austin, Chumba‘s been cranking out their mountain bike frames in house. Today after a quick trail ride with Vince from Chumba, he took me out to their facilities so I could see their office and fabrication shop.
All I have to say is I’m stoked to see this going down in Austin, just 30 minutes from my home.
More to come!
Yesterday, we took a look inside the workspace of Brian from Chapman Cycles and today, I see this gorgeous fendered commuter up on the Chapman Flickr. There are so many beautiful details on this frame, that you’ll have to go see them for yourself.
If you’re in the UK, you should really check out this deal. Kinoko is having a frame blowout sale and one of them is a steal. For £925.0 you can get a Cross Classic frame. That’s frame, fork and matching King headset. The only catch is, it’s a 54cm. Head to Kinoko for more information.
