Here’s the latest video from Mike Cotty and the Col Collective in which he tackles the Passo Gavia. This climb lives in infamy, fist appearing in the Giro back in 1960 and frequently surprising racers with inclement weather. Make sure you check this one out and apologies for any wanderlust that arises…
Our friends over at Juliana bicycles, the sister company to Santa Cruz, have just announced a SRAM Pro Team for 2015. Featuring Anka Martin, Sarah Leishman and Kelli Emmett, the team will be competing in various enduro races around the globe. Huge props to Juliana and SRAM for taking the leap and supporting these women as they chase their dreams. Read up more at the Juliana Blog and see a few photos below.
Also, hi Anka!
After years of demand, Levi’s has finally listened and delivered a women’s line. Here’s a short video showcasing some of the product features. Personally, I think it looks great and from what I’ve been told, many more pieces are on the way. Check out the full line at Levi’s.
… also, that’s a nice All-City Space Horse at the end!
This video popped up in the Oddity Cycles 29+ thread and I felt like it could use a share. Thanks to Breed007 for linking us to it!
I’m really digging this collaboration:
“In February of 2015 Pro skaters Chico Brenes, Rob Gonzales, and Steve Nesser were accompanied by Cadence Founder Dustin Klein and Brand ambassador Fergus Tanaka. Creating a unique group with different and a parallel background.
Tour De Nica was a chance for all to celebrate the culture and atmosphere of Nicaragua where Chico was born and Central is based out of. Days where spent Riding bikes between city and skating the abundance of parks Nica has to offer.
Culture Cross over at its finest.”
See the collaboration at Cadence.
This looks great! Element collaborated with artist TIMBER! on a capsule collection including t-shirts, made in the USA Cone Mills “Tourer” jeans, “Porteur” denim jacket and a “Randonneur” waterproof jacket, all under the brand’s motto of “Keep Discovering.”
If you’re in Paris, Belgium or London, make sure you catch the art shows from this project. You can follow along at Element.
… oh my. I hope, hope, hope I can squeeeeze this into my busy NAHBS schedule this weekend.
Here’s an interesting competition from Knog:
“We’re looking for the best night-time videos from around the globe. Whether it’s midnight snowboarding, festival crowd surfing, or any weird wonderfulness we couldn’t even dream of, we want to see it.
Enter for your chance to win a range of prizes, plus a worldwide screening of your video at the global festival in June.”
We all know when it comes to bicycles, sometimes blacker is better. Brompton releases their new Black Edition and before you judge folding bikes, I highly suggest you head to a dealer and try one out. Does anyone else want to see this thing with gumwall tires?
Fred down! Fred down! Mulholland claims another victim.
