Baum Cycles: 2015 Rapha Tour Down Under Corretto Road
BaumRapha_Cover

For the 2015 Tour Down Under, Baum Cycles cooked up something delicious for Rapha Australia. A titanium Corretto road with Campagnolo Super Record 11 and Lightweight wheels. Along with the signature Rapha color bands, the head badge has a unique inlay. The complete bike is sophisticated, yet sporty with one of the cleanest profiles I’ve seen from this pairing over the years. Personally, this is one of my favorite Baum and Rapha collaborations.

Releases like these always make me miss the warm and sunny rides we have here in Texas, almost year round. Even as the temperatures are freezing currently now. The To the Sun Collection is Rapha’s latest capsule. Including sun sleeves, which are a summer staple ’round these parts, a lightweight cap and a lightweight, race cut jersey.

See the entire To the Sun Collection at Rapha and more information from the press-release below. Also, what’s up Tao!?

Rapha Cycle Club NYC: 1986 World Championship Road Race Show
Rapha86Worlds

This looks so good. I wish I could make it!

“On Tuesday, December 9th, the Rapha Cycle Club will be hosting a very special photo exhibition. Our friend Kevin Hatt shot some amazing images at the 1986 World Championship Road Race in Colorado Springs, Colorado. These photos have never been seen before, and they feature some great behind-the-scenes shots from a race event that did not get much coverage.”

Rapha: New Climber’s Shoes
Rapha_Climbers_Shoes

They’re not quite in stock yet, but I like the looks of the new Rapha Climber’s Shoes. Based off the new Prolight SLX EC90 SLXII sole and footbeds, these perforated cycling shoes shed weight and maintain stiffness where it’s needed. Coming soon (like in a few weeks) from Rapha.
