One of my favorite shops, Blue Lug from Tokyo, visited one of my favorite US-made component companies, Paul, right after NAHBS. I’ve yet to spend time in Chico with the crew from Paul, but these photos make me feel like I was there. Thanks Blue Lug!

A-train Cycles: Stainless Road
ACF_Front

While I was in Minneapolis for Frostbike, we spent some time at Angry Catfish, one of my favorite bike shops in the US. As I’m walking around looking at all the winter apparel (we don’t get a lot of that stuff in Texas), I noticed this stunning A-train Cycles road bike on display. It turns out, Alex from A-train is a part time mechanic at the shop and built this beaut to display in the store (and to sell).

Dura Ace, Thomson, ENVE, DT Swiss… what else could you ask for? Complete as shown, the bike will cost you $9,500. Holler at Angry Catfish for ordering information.

Oh and see more of this stunning road machine below!

Kinoko Visits Alex Singer

Out of all the European frame builders, this name in particular resonates with me, as well as a majority of the rando crowd. Alex Singer’s shop in Levallois-Perret, Paris, France has become a mecca for cycling tourists. Kinoko cycles recently visited Singer’s shop and took some photos. See more at the Kinoko blog!

Velo Cult: New Patches

I’ve always admired Velo Cult’s branding and my San Diego Velo Cult patch is still one of my favorites. Since moving to Portland, the guys haven’t re-issued any of them, until now. Velo Cult has four new patches. Just follow them on Instagram @VeloCult and email [email protected] to pick one up for $5 or all four up for $15.
