Manual for Speed Launches the Kasual Klub

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.

New Golden Saddle Cyclery Goods

Los Angeles’ Golden Saddle Cyclery always kills it in the product department. They’ve just re-stocked some classics and brought in some new products. The Sean Talkington-designed DeFeet socks and Geoff McFetridge-designed shirt are my favorite and if you’re lacking on stem caps, they’ve got the full color spectrum to match your Paul or Chris King products.

Head over to Golden Saddle Cyclery to see what’s currently available.
