In Los Angeles, if you don’t have a cross bike, you’re fuckin’ up. Seriously. There are so many dirt roads and tracks to explore, all within the city limits that you’ll quickly realize your road bike or mountain bike’s limitations.
For Yanco, he wanted a frame from a California pedigree. He had put a deposit down with Hunter Cycles a while back, way before the second year of Mudfoot Stinners popped up. So when his spot in the Hunter queue finally came up, he contacted Geoff McFetridge and Aaron about setting him up with a Mudfoot-painted ENVE fork for his Hunter.
At first, no one was sure how it’d look, but after Rick posted a photo of the grey frame with blue logos, we all knew it’d look incredible. Matched with mango Chris King, some Paul skewers and a little sumpin’ sumpin’ locked into the downtube bottle bosses, this bike has some real style…
Then it fell over and I felt horrible! Sorry Yanco! Hopefully it’s not the last time this bike goes #RubberSideUp…
… and other goods. You know the deal, head to Tracko to swoop now!

In the ground level of a beautiful home in Los Angeles, Javiar Yanco makes bags, caps and other accessories used by cyclists of every kind. From randonneurs, to bikepackers, road cyclists, MTB racers and cross bike explorers, Yanco’s bags have a cult-like following. One product in particular, the Ramblin Roll, sold by Tracko, literally launched him into full-time production recently.
But his work doesn’t stop there. From packraft bags, musettes, bar bags, bikepacking bags, caps and yes, still a few top tube pads, Yanco makes products that he’s inspired to make slightly different than the rest.
Through using bright colors, unique zippers and yes, camo, lots of camo, these bags will always fetch the comment on Instagram: “what kind of bag is that?…”
I caught up with Yanco last week in Los Angeles, as he was in the zone making Ramblin Rolls, and asked him a few questions for a Ride Along.
Check that out below!
If you’ve missed putting in a pre-order for Ramblin Rolls in the past, here’s another chance. I have these on all of my bikes and wouldn’t use anything else for a flat-fix kit.
Pre-order now at Tracko!
The ever so popular, yet impossible to order Ramblin Rolls are back up for pre-order. That means if you ordered them on the last run, yours is en route.
Head over to Tracko to get on that!
Since everyone always misses out on these Ramblin Rolls, Kyle at Tracko and Yanco are doing a pre-order. Don’t slack on this though, because it’s limited to 100 spots with a six-week wait time. If all goes smooth, they’ll keep doing this, every six weeks.
Head to Tracko now to pre-order a Ramblin Roll!
Kyle over at Tracko has a whole lotta new stock in his shop, just in time for payday. His Splinter Camo Bibs and Warmers match the new Teardrop camo cap and yeah, those Ramblin’ Rolls are in stock (for 3…2…1…).
Also, finish your ride with a COKE!
In stock now at Trackosaurus Rex.
Too bad they sold out in about 4 minutes. Stay on top of Trackosaurus Rex and Kyle’s Instagram in the future.
I missed out on the other two products Tracko put up for sale but he’s still got a few Denim Workmen’s Caps up. These fit great and are made in Los Angeles by Yanco. Support these dudes and swoop here.
