Yeti takes on the Tobacco Roots range in their latest video, showcasing some of Montana’s epic scenery and riding.
Over the years, we’ve all really strived to make the content and the characters here on the Radavist unique. It’s been a slow process, but as I’ve just spent a week sifting through the site’s archives from 2016, I can honestly say this has been our best year yet. These year-end recaps are always a joy to collate, as it allows everyone here at the site, as well as the readers to look back and relive some our favorite moments.
2016 was busy. Very busy. In fact, the archives are almost twice as long as the previous year’s, which were almost twice as long as the year’s prior, making editing the site’s content into a digestible post challenging. We’ve omitted bicycle reviews and Beautiful Bicycles for obvious reasons, leaving only ride, travel and shop visit Reportage as the meat of the gallery and storyline. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did and I’d like to thank everyone for making this site, well, rad! That includes you, the readers and the commenters. I couldn’t ask for a better community.
Before things get too sappy, read on below for the Radavist’s 2016 Year in Review. (more…)
Man, I don’t spend enough time in the Midwest!
We’ve seen a few of these built up on the site, with the best yet to come. All-City’s Log Lady singlespeed mountain frames are a lot of fun to build up and ride either as rigid or hardtails. Head on over to their blog to read their newest posting about these bikes and head to your local shop for ordering.
Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean Chris Akrigg isn’t pulling together sick lines. Enjoy!

Hanging with Charlie Kelly at the Marin Museum of Bicycling!

When in Marin you better make it a point to do one of two things. The first thing I’d recommend is going on a ride and taking a stab at the world record Repack decent of 4:22 still held by Gary Fisher on a Klunker! The second thing I’d recommend is getting over to the Marin Museum of Bicycling! If you have time, I’d even suggest you do them both. I would even go as far to say that you should ride down from the mountains straight into the museum, high on Klunker stoke, knowing that you just rode the fire roads where legends were born.
I was unable to go on a ride because of time, but will most definitely be up in the coming Spring to give Gary Fisher a run for his money. Sean from Team Dream and I were visiting Northern California to attend one of our good friend’s wedding around the Point Reyes area, it was a quick trip so there was no riding in our cards, but we definitely made the time for the Marin Museum of Bicycling.
