A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a rope swing… Rubber side up!
Where did Prolly is Not Probably go?
It is still here, and then some. PiNP was one person’s opinion and voice. Now we are a collective – a community of diverse opinions and rich stories.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
Why does a porpoise surf a wave, or a sea otter slide down a rock? Atavism is a primal trait in humans and animals that drives us to do what we do – what ought to come naturally. Atavism is why we ride the way we ride; From mashing the city on a track bike to shredding the trails on full suspension. Take the time to get rad.
The 2016 Manual for Speed campaign begins with the Spring Classics. If there is a better way to start off the year, we can’t think of one. And if we can’t think of one, that means one doesn’t exist. But what makes the Spring Classics so classic? Hmmm, could it be that the races travel through ancient and medieval European towns teeming with drunk David Guetta zombies? Is is it the unpredictable and vengeful weather conditions that torment the riders with flashes of sun, wind, rain, snow, and hail? Perhaps it’s the format of the races themselves, one-day winner-take-all affairs where winning means putting everything you have have on the line? Yes, yes, yes—and more. These races are the equivalent of knife fighting over an open grave or biting off your own tongue out of spite. These are scratching, clawing, blood, sweat, and tears affairs. You fail, your bike fails, the weather fails and it’s over, it’s an entire year before you get another chance. All this means that these races present the opportunity for a truly transformative experience, a platform for the uncanny and the beautiful. A true spectacle, and we’re here for the spectacle man!!!
This year we’ll be hitting the Tour des Flandres (Ronde van Vlaanderen), Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold Race, Flèche Wallone, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège. That’s right, we’re covering all the big dogs, the Classic’s Classics, nah’mean? Of course we’re not just going to Europe to cover the races. We’re talking about Fan Clubs, MFS Cribz, Chillers, Barricade Butts, Barricade Pups, Casual Baguettes, and everything else you’ve come to expect from Manual for Speed and more, what exactly more is for the time being.
In what I would consider Kitsbow’s best product, the Icon wool flannel shirt returns in three new colors: blue, grey and red. This is seriously the best flannel I’ve ever owned and when the temperature dips, it’s always in my pack or on my back. The flexible shoulder gussets and extra material on the arms really makes this an extremely durable and versatile flannel.
Made in the USA with a pricetag of $195. See more at Kitsbow!
Santa Barbara’s Stinner Frameworks reached out to Cadence founder Dustin Klein to design a new logo longsleeve t-shirt. It, along with a few other designs are now live in the Stinner Frameworks webshop and are shipping now, so head on over to check them out.
The guys at Manual for Speed have just restocked their popular Space Tape in three colors: black, pink and turquoise. Basically, something for everyone. Except you people who roll with all-white bar tape. Also restocked is the newest permutation of the Speed Tee. This round, leave the bright colors behind. It’s time for all-black!
The thing I love about local bike shops is their reach. Monkey Wrench, Golden Saddle, Angry Catfish, Vecchios and the like all have great branding, which results in people wearing their products. Yo Jimbos in Chicago is doing a pre-order for tees and sweats right now. For something new in your wardrobe, head over to support them!
Made in SF, the Sansom is constructed of Schoeller Turkish stretch cotton with a NanoSphere® water repellent finish with German made Prym s-spring snaps for fastening. This is a tech shirt that looks damn good on and off the bike. The last rendition was one of my favorite MW pieces. Available now, in limited stock at Mission Workshop.
