Golden Saddle Cyclery’s Caps are the Best
GSC_Caps-4

When it comes to iconic cycling products, over the years Golden Saddle Cyclery’s caps have gained quite the following. Chances are, if you go to a bike event, anywhere on Earth, someone will be wearing one. While wearing is part of owning a cap, I recently bought a set to display in my office, because, like all good things, I want to be able to hold onto them for a while.

Golden Saddle has restocked two of the designs, so head on over and swoop a set up. To be sweated in or just for display.

Make it Happen

As someone who is constantly looking at how other videographers and photographers capture cycling, the Make it Happen video caught my eye. Sent to me by George Marshall of the Albion this project is worth checking out, in its full glory.

That Hurt Like Hell
OregonOutback-1

28 hours of moving time, 60 elapsed hours, 13mph average, 15,300′ elevation, 368 miles later and Team AWOL is done. We finished the Velodirt Oregon Outback, self-supported, fully loaded on Sunday, 45 minutes ahead of schedule. I rode the last day with a bum knee and a crooked back. It was three days of highs and lows, with a constant headwind.

… but we did it. Expect a whole torrent of photos and posts once I recover and return home to Austin.

Thanks for the support on Instagram and your patience while the site has been inactive.

SOLD OUT: The Radavist Talisman Pocket T-Shirt
Radavist_Pocket_Tees-2

In Elder Futhark, the rune raidō means “ride or journey”. It is the mark of the Radavist. This rune is part of the talisman logo featured on the front pocket. On the rear, the spirit animal of the Radavist, a jackal with a scarred back that walks on its tail and the motto “Rubber Side Up”.

These American Apparel pocket tees were printed using natural discharge ink at Industry Print Shop here in Austin. After a few washes, you won’t even feel where the print was. Make sure you wash them before wearing.

Scoop one up below for $25 + Shipping… sorry, sold out!

Chrome: Limited Edition Chris Milliman Citizen
citizen_millimanseries_chicagosteel_hero

The newest from Chrome features one of my favorite photographers in cycling, Chris Milliman:

Chris Milliman has been taking pictures since he was a kid. He’s been riding a bike a little bit longer. Chris is lucky enough to do both for a living. He’s captured some of the most epic cycling moments around the world. From Cyclocross Nationals, to the Tour de France, to the streets of NYC and Chicago, Chris captures the essence of cycling in every shot he takes.

This season’s Limited Edition Artist Series features four of Chris’ iconic photographs: A local cyclocross race around an old castle in Belgium, the iconic industrial bridge structures overlooking the bike lanes of Chicago, a locals only watering hole of the same windy city, and the organized chaos of a bike shop. The inside of each bag includes an exclusive woven patch that references old school photo processing.

The Chrome Artist Series celebrates photographers, graphic designers, screen printers, and painters who inspire us. These collaborations are built in limited quantities and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

The four Milliman Artist Photo Citizens include:
Zonnebeke (brwn/red), Chicago Steel (brnw/yellow), Locals Only (brwn/green), and Shop Rat (brwn/blue)

See more at Chrome.
