Just in time for the heat! Mission Workshop has restocked my favorite summer mountain bike, camping, touring and all-around short in three colors. I’ve put these things through the ringer and only now, after over three years of heavy use have they been deemed unrepairable by my clothing-repairing wizard of a girlfriend. Good new is they’re in stock and shipping now from Mission Workshop.

Made from Polartec® Windpro® Hardface®, the Torre hooded fleece is specifically designed to fit women. This is a high-tech fabric, that maintains the stretchiness, comfort and feel of a traditional hoodie, but with added warmth and a DWR coating for weather resistance. Made in SF and in stock now at Mission Workshop.
I love products like this. Ones with multi-functionality built into a tight, clean package. The Mission Workshop Albion shirt is part down jacket and part rain jacket. While it doesn’t pack down into a pocket, or completely protect you from rain, it appears to do a good job at keeping you warm and dry in cold, inclement weather. Check out more information at Mission Workshop.
We’re live-streaming the Q+A with Curtis Inglis right here on the Radavist. At 6:30pm PST, tune in at the video above…
Curtis is the best and these series from MW are always a lot of fun… Here’s the scoop!
“Join us on October 22nd for an evening with Curtis Inglis of Retrotec Cycles. Hear about his 25 years building bikes, SSWC08, restoring British cars, and everything in between. We’ll kick things off with a ride* leaving the shop at 12:30 pm and return to beers and tacos starting around 5:30 pm, with Curtis taking the stage at 6:00 pm.
*The ride: It’s a cyclocross ride. Bring a cyclocross bike and extra tubes (a road bike won’t cut it). There will be rocks and singletrack with the route sometimes erring on the mountain bike side of the spectrum. We’ll be riding in the east bay. Bring some cash for a BART ticket or meet at Rockridge station at 1:00 pm. Not to be missed. Here’s the route.”
RSVP for the event so Mission Workshop has an estimate for attendance.
One of my favorite pieces from Mission Workshop just got the olive drab makeover. The Sansom is now in stock, in three colors just in time for fall.
If you’re not going to Interbike and live in SF or LA, make sure you swing through the Mission Workshop stores for the Carhartt WIP and Pelago parties. Los Angeles’ party is Thursday and San Francisco’s is Friday. Check out the details below. (more…)
This collaboration came out really well. The previously mentioned Carhartt WIP x Pelago Bicycles x Mission Workshop collection is now in stock at Mission Workshop.
It’s not often that three companies get together to make something as practical as this project from Mission Workshop, Pelago and Carhartt WIP. Check out the full press-release for this project below and expect the collection to be available in August. (more…)
