Cedar Cycling: See Inside their Standard Jersey

Sometimes, deconstructing an everyday item like a cycling jersey is the best way to see the details. The guys at Cedar Cycling posted this infographic today for those of you wondering what their Standard Jersey looks like, from a detail perspective.

In addition to their Midnight and Prolly is Not Probably Standard Jersey editions, Cedar still has a limited number of merino wool and merino wool blend tee shirts left in stock.

Cedar Cycling PiNP Merino Jersey Now Available

Last year, at NAHBS, I met Jeremy and Neil from Cedar Cycling, a new cycling wear brand. Using high-end Australian merino wool blend fabric and local manufacturing in California, I knew Cedar was really doing something genuine and legit. Over a bottle of bourbon, we discussed working on a jersey. But since they had barely just launched their brand, we knew it would be some time before we’d have samples.

Earlier in the summer, I met up with them in SF to look at fabrics and discuss the jersey in detail. Then, a few weeks ago, I finally got my hands on one. I was really, really impressed. This is one of the nicest jerseys I’ve ever owned. We worked really hard getting everything right, especially the fit. It’s form-fitting, without being race cut. The sleeves sit just right and the front lies flat on your chest.

One of my biggest qualms with a lot of jerseys that I own is the pocket room. Especially during the winter. You end up stuffing arm warmers, a gillet and gloves into your pockets on the daily. Three generous open rear pockets hold all your ride essentials, plus two hidden zippered pockets to keep your valuables safe. The whole jersey is held in place by silicone gripper imported from Italy. The fit is true to size. I wear a large shirt and a large jersey.

It fits great and is incredibly comfortable. What I’m trying to say is, this is far from just a new “colorway”…

Pre-order one at the PiNP Web Shop today! These will be shipped on January 18th.

*One small note, our factory sewed up all of the jerseys with the rear pocket purple trim except for the mediums. Medium jerseys will have a grey pocket trim, matching the jersey. See this picture. Everything else is the same. Sorry!

Just a Few of the Cedar Cycling and PiNP Jersey Details

Last year, at NAHBS, I met Jeremy and Neil from Cedar Cycling, a new cycling wear brand. Using high-end New Zealand merino wool and local manufacturing, I knew Cedar was really doing something genuine and legit. Over a bottle of bourbon, we discussed working on a jersey. But since they had barely just launched their brand, we knew it would be some time before we’d have samples.

Earlier in the summer, I met up with them in SF to look at fabrics and discuss the jersey in detail. Then, just last week, I finally got my hands on one. I was really, really impressed. This is one of the nicest jerseys I’ve ever owned. We worked really hard getting everything right, especially the fit. It’s form-fitting, without being race cut. The sleeves sit just right and the front lies flat on your chest.

One of my biggest qualms with a lot of jerseys that I own is the pocket room. Especially during the winter. You end up stuffing arm warmers, a gillet and gloves into your pockets on the daily.  These jerseys have both pocket room and ample reinforced stitching to help maintain its intended shape. It fits great and is incredibly comfortable. What I’m trying to say is, this is far from just a new “colorway”…

I just signed off on the production sample and the full run is currently being made by hand in Oakland, California. Expect a delivery mid-January and we’ll be running a discounted pre-order after the new year. For now, here’s a few of the details.

PiNP 2012: A Year in 55 Photos

In 2012, PiNP’s content was like a pinball machine. It seemed like every other month, I’d find myself in another city. Some familiar, some new, but I traveled everywhere with my bike and camera in hand, ready to see what was out there. Throughout these travels, I formed a lot of strong friendships with a lot of incredible people. Some of which have become my best of friends. We rode hard, we partied harder and somehow, I managed to keep the year in focus.

Black Friday Savings

Black Friday Savings

Each year, I try to share the wealth of savings of Black Friday sales. As always, support your local bike shop first and foremost. Local businesses thrive on holiday sales. In fact, many businesses make enough money during the holidays to help them stay open year round. SO SHOP LOCAL!

Now to completely contradict all that, here are a few online sales and events happening on Black Friday. If you’re throwing a race, post it up in the comments and I’ll add it to the post. Just make sure the flier is at least 655 pixels wide!

Apparel Made in California

Apparel Made in California

Let’s just say, I met the Cedar Cycling guys after chasing them down, ultra hungover at NAHBS. Neil and Jeremy have both been around the industry for long enough to know what they wanted in a cycling line. They wanted to create simple, classic cycling apparel, made to be worn everyday and they wanted to make by hand it in California. We got to chatting and immediately, I knew these two meant business. They showed me some samples of their merino garments and I was sold on the quality, right off the bat.

A couple of emails back and forth and the word “collaboration” was tossed around, so the last time I was in SF, I sat down with Jeremy and Neil to discuss a run of jerseys, all made in the USA and designed to be your go-to kit for year-round riding.
