Did You Reach for the Manual for Speed Bartape?

This mysterious tape landed itself on Wilis’ No 22 Broken Arrow and other bikes here on the Radavist over the past few months. A lot of you asked what it was, speculated, made bets, offered to sell your souls. Well, no need to do the latter. It’s in stock now at Manual for Speed. In case you missed that subtlety in the last post. Designed by Dan Funderburgh, influenced from architectural tessellations (my favorite), and made by Cinelli, this stuff will be sure to sell out today.

Manual for Speed Launches the Kasual Klub

When Manual for Speed does something, they go above and beyond. Now, above what or beyond where is open to interpretation, but one thing’s for sure: these cats are wild. Wild, but chill.. and that’s exactly what Kasual Klub is all about. Chilling. Well, that and this:

“What is Kasual Klub? It’s a Vibe, a Crü, and a Collection of Clothes For Sale. And a Klub, obvs. There are only two ways to get in the Klub: 1) Turn yourself into an exceptionally gifted World Class Human Athlete (or equivalent), or 2) buy a Kasual Klub clothing item now available for sale in our “store”. That’s it; one way is really fucking hard, and pretty much impossible, the other way means you just have to buy a cotton t-shirt or some insane technical socks.”

See some more Kasual Klub flicks below and check the lineup at Manual for Speed.

Two of my favorite photos from Manual for Speed’s Tour de San Luis coverage are now available as prints. Or, if you prefer, there are posters as well. Either way, your walls could always use a lil more cycling ephemera. Both prints and the posters are in stock at Manual for Speed.

Their unique form of anthropological archiving of professional bike racing is unstoppable. Head over to Manual for Speed to soak in some Argentinian culture. Oh and bike racing. Oh and a sick mix tape.
