There are insuations that I make millions of dollars a year from the cycling industry for posting high-end, limited edition, wank-resistant kits, jackets, hubs, spokes and bar tape. It’s true and Manual for Speed pays me so much money that I’m the literal Scrooge McDuck of the industry, diving into pools of Chris King headsets and PAUL Touring Cantis.
Or… I just like what companies are doing and decide to post their products, regardless of how outrageous they are. I kinda wanna wear one of these jerseys to BRUNCH BRO (sorry Emi).
Scoop up one of these completely ridiculous but somehow necessary 2014 Tour de France Manual for Speed extravaganza jerseys at Garmin Slipstream for a end of July delivery.
David at Death Spray Custom has been busy preparing for the 2014 Tour de France. Many moons again, Cannondale commissioned him to paint a bike for each rider, adorned with their spirit animals, inspired by native American Haida style.
The fleet looks amazing, so head over to Death Spray Custom to see each rider’s bike! Brakethrough did a great job documenting these bikes.
For issue 39, Rouleur decided to do something a little different: a 260-page Tour de France edition. To build up anticipation and honestly, to just give something cool away for free, they’ve posted a 25-page sampler for free. Download it here.

One of my favorite photographers, Emily Maye just uploaded a select from shots from the 2013 Tour. I really think these are some of her best yet from the world of professional cycling. Check out more here!
10 years ago, Dave Watson attempted to hit a road gap over the Tour de France but ate it after landing. This year, Romain Marandet nailed it. Perfectly timed over Froome, the winner of the 100th Tour.
… and this video of Jensie makes me want to catch up. No spoilers in the comments please!
Year after year, a graphic designer named Jerome Daksiewicz sells amazing Tour de France infographics and this year’s poster commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Tour. Check out more information at NOMO Shop.
Watch this. Have a chuckle and maybe even learn something. This is too entertaining.
I usually don’t post illustrations of t-shirts but with these two coming together, I had to give it some love. Manual for Speed for Garmin…. and it’s time for the Tour!
With the Tour right around the corner, the cycling posters come out of the woodwork. I’ve seen a lot of work over the years but Bruce Doscher’s are very unique. See his work from last year’s Tour at his portfolio site.
