A group of individuals who share a love of cycling and the outdoors. We will always stop for a photo, or to hit a jump. Rubber side up!
We believe the outdoors should be respected. Please, pack it in and pack it out. Leave it better, even. Remember, we’re all ambassadors for cycling, so be polite on the road and the trails and observe the leave no trace principles.
What does the Radavist mean?
Rad + Atavist = RADAVIST
These days, it’s hard to tell what is an ad and what is content. When you visit the Radavist, you can be assured that our content is our own. Unless it is explicitly noted, we do not take money to make content here on the site. We do not make sponsored posts and when we do a product review, it is honest. In short: nothing was exchanged for a favorable write-up. The only money this site receives is from the ads you see on the right-hand column. We select these brands because their ideologies align with the Radavist’s. When these companies buy an ad, it does not buy content. If we post about their products, it’s because they are relevant to the site’s audience.
Our comment policy is simple: we welcome and value tactful discourse and opinions. You don’t have to agree with our views but please deliver your concerns in a polite and personable manner. This is a safe place, all are welcome to engage in this community. That said, there is zero-tolerance for: racism, sexism, trolling, and slander.

You can fall behind. Give in. Break.
Or you can step up. Give it your all. And breakaway.
Biding your time, till you know it’s your time.
To leave all the other riders, all the crowds and all the doubt behind.
To leave all you’ve got on the track, with nothing left to give.
To bring cold strategy and fiery boldness together in one pure moment.
Anyone can break. But not everyone can breakaway.

Howdy y’all! If you’re headed to the Ruta Del Jefe, we’ll see you there. If you are going into this kinda blindly, I suggest you read up on the race at the Bike Reg page and study the course route. After riding in this zone last weekend during Super Stoke, I can say it’s a tricky area to navigate if you don’t have a map, so do yourself a favor and download something like Ride With GPS or print out a map!
There’s also a ping pong tournament at Madrean Fabrication tonight so head to 1011 S Euclid Ave, Tucson, AZ 85719 from 6:30-?pm.
We’ll see ya there! My back is kinda screwed up so I might be playing neutral support at the event!
… and drops the price point down to $2,550 for a set with the new Hydra i9 hubs from $2,800 with DT Swiss Hubs, or $2980 for previous Torch hubs. making it a little less pinchy on your wallet for a new MUSA pairing. See the rim options at ENVE.
Our friend Pepper Cook was recently interviewed by Surly!
Favorite bike-related memory.
I don’t have one specific bike memory, but I think my favourite thing on a bike ever is when you ride in Autumn and it’s flannel weather and the sun does that thing where it shines through the tree branches all dappled and you get to ride over a thick carpet of fallen leaves. You can hear the quiet crunching of the different coloured leaves and it’s cool enough outside where you don’t get sweaty. It feels like you’re riding in a time machine that got stuck on pause, or like you’re the last person on earth and you’ll never have to hurry anywhere ever again.
Pepper works with getting kids into bikepacking, has a warm and positive attitude and makes even the most miserable, or Type 02 fun trips look fun. Head on over to Surly to read more!
Max from 333 Fab is fighting Stage 3 rectal cancer right now and since our country’s healthcare system is inherently flawed, many people look to their community for support in their time of medical need. Head to Max’s GoFundMe to help him out with a small donation.
