We all know Team Dream makes some great gear but this season’s drop has really raised the bar for the brand. With new jerseys, bibs, shirts, socks and accessories, there’s something for everyone, at any pricepoint. My personal favorites are the Thin Stripe and Dots Jerseys as well as the Thin Stripe Socks and the Chubby Bobcat Pocket T.
One of my favorite stories from Norse Mythology relates to nature’s impact on man. Scandanavian warriors would often wear the skin of a bear or a wolf before entering battle, resulting in the spirit of the animal possessing them in battle. As Odin’s personal army the Berserkir were known for ferocity as well as loyalty as they fought for the pack leader. In fact the Old Norse word berserkir, literally translates to “bear-shirt” and was soon called “going berserk.”
Venturing into the woods, be it during an expedition, or just an everyday ride, we too can find ourselves transformed. Every time we push ourselves on the bike, or subsequently find ourselves pushed off the bike, we grow – #RubberSideUp. This introspective experience not only shapes us as riders, but it continues to strengthen our relationship with nature. If anything deserves respect, it’s the woods.
This image of the Berserkir, or Úlfhéðnar, is further empowered by the Norse protection symbol, the Vegvísir, which is a direction sign that enables you to stay the course without being lost. Something extremely beneficial to cyclists.

When Manual for Speed does something, they go above and beyond. Now, above what or beyond where is open to interpretation, but one thing’s for sure: these cats are wild. Wild, but chill.. and that’s exactly what Kasual Klub is all about. Chilling. Well, that and this:
“What is Kasual Klub? It’s a Vibe, a Crü, and a Collection of Clothes For Sale. And a Klub, obvs. There are only two ways to get in the Klub: 1) Turn yourself into an exceptionally gifted World Class Human Athlete (or equivalent), or 2) buy a Kasual Klub clothing item now available for sale in our “store”. That’s it; one way is really fucking hard, and pretty much impossible, the other way means you just have to buy a cotton t-shirt or some insane technical socks.”
See some more Kasual Klub flicks below and check the lineup at Manual for Speed.
All cops are bastards?
All cabs are bastards?
All couriers are bastards?
Boda Boda NYC and TCB Courier – that’s East Coast and West Coast – have teamed up on a limited run of shirts, designed by Tom Guenther and literally flying off the shelves now. Head on over to TCB Courier to swoop!
Matt Cardinal’s Daily Derailleur Instagram illustrations are amazing and after many requests, he’s begun putting them on t-shirts. So far, a Shimano shirt has popped up, with what appears to be a Paul derailleur shirt in queue. Head over to Matt’s Instagram to follow the sales and TeeSpring to order one of the Shimano shirts.
Edit: Matt just updated the TeeSpring site to include a web store with three designs, including the Paul derailleur.
By using the old Japanese method of Shibori tie-dye and reflective printing by ICNY, these new Manual for Speed shirts take your casual wardrobe to new levels. Problem is, they’re probably going to sell out faster than you can say SPEED 3x…
Jeremy Powers teamed up with Rapha and the Pros Closet to sell a commemorative shirt, celebrating his national championship titles. Proceeds will go to the JAM Fund cycling program to help cover the costs incurred at the USA Cycling Cyclo-Cross National Championships (Austin, Texas says sorry!) and to continue to raise funds for The JAM Fund’s upcoming 2015 cyclocross season. Head over to JPows.com to order.
Tired of the industry always switching technology up on you? Sick of hearing those squealing disc brakes on the cross course behind you? Or hearing people talk about how “cantis suck?” Don’t like the added weight? Or having to bleed them? Or maybe you just don’t need ‘em. “Cross bikes look so great with cantis!” What’s next? Dropper posts? Suspension? Full face helmets? Baggies? Where does it end? Downhill crossie races? Is it just too much? Why don’t the Europeans use them? Don’t fondo my crossie, bro!
Whatever the reason, I couldn’t help but be stoked on these new Death Before Discs shirts, even if, yeah, disc brakes aren’t so bad. Scoop up a shirt or a sticker pack at Death Before Discs and remember guys, it’s all in good fun…
TCB Courier has teamed up with SF-street artist Pynbal on a limited run of t-shirts. This is part one in a series of collaborations with the TVC crew. In stock now at TCB Courier.
