Let’s face it, commuting wear has come a long way in the past few years and Rapha always delivers…
This Thursday, House Industries is having an exhibition of their new Velo Font at the Rapha Cycle Club in New York City. I wish I could make it out and see this collection in person, it looks really great.
Here are the details:
Opening Oct. 16 at 6:00 p.m.
With a panel discussion PEDALING DESIGN presented by AIGA NY
64 Gansevoort St, New York, NY
Exhibition runs October 16 to October 26
This has got to be one of the best Rapha Gentlemen’s Race to date. I can’t wait to see the full feature photo gallery. It’s great to see Tyler from Pearl Velo in there!
For this fall’s City Riding Collection, Rapha tried something a little different and you know what? I think it’s working. Check out the full lookbook at Rapha. This one’s shot really well!
“This film, produced by Rapha and Ben Ingham, is about two of America’s finest and most inspiring road racers, Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter-Phinney. For anyone who saw them race, Davis and Connie came to represent the best in American road racing, combining bold racing with uncompromising attitudes on and off the bike. Their careers saw them move from domination of domestic races to international and Olympic success…”
It’s almost cross season and that means Rapha has a few new things up their sleeves. Here are my two favorite pieces from their Cross Collection, the Long Sleeve Jersey ($215) and the Short Sleeve Jersey ($120). See more at Rapha.
Wait a second, what’s this? That’s not a cross shoe?!
“Continuing the partnership in footwear with Giro, Rapha are launching our first cyclocross-specific shoe. Built on the EC90 carbon outsole used by Giro’s current range of MTB/Cross footwear, the upper of the shoe has been developed for the rigors of racing with a rubberized heel and toe-cap and aggressive outsole cleats for getting through the mud. Aesthetically clean and refined, the colors of Rapha Super Cross are woven into the shoe’s upper.”
Don’t miss out on the Rapha Cross Collection and see more of the actual shoes below!
With the 2014-15 cyclocross season ramping up and the House Industries / Richard Sachs show at Rapha NYC tomorrow, the guys at House just posted some exceptional photos of Brittlee Bowman’s team cross bike to up the ante.
My favorite part of this project: it’s a damn race bike! Not a showpiece. Well, tomorrow night it will be. Make sure you RSVP for the show at Rapha and see more details below.
Friday, August 22, 2014, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Show runs August 23 to September 21, 2014

Look, I didn’t want day two to be more Portland photos. I know this city is awesome and I have a lot of rad friends here but come on. I need some nature. Alas, yesterday was our last day in PDX, before we head out of town, along the Nestucca River to the PCH.
It’s been 12 years since I owned a vehicle and I was quickly reminded at the cost of maintenance. New tires? Yeah, expensive. Funny how you can rationalize $80 tires for your bike, but $200 tires for a car or truck? Dammit!
After running some errands, I swung by to see my friends at Rapha North America to see their expanded offices and drink all their coffee before heading out to do much of the same – try to meet as many friends as I could before we headed out of town in the morning…
