A Sneak Peek At Our Winter Drop

Normally, we would have launched our Winter Drop this week but a few things have delayed the launch, particularly (you guessed it) shortages for t-shirts. We’re in the home stretch now, however, and we’ve got a pretty robust launch on the way. Our webshop is still technically down, although our existing product is live on The Pro’s Closet, and our portal will be redesigned this week. We’ve got shirts, bottles, stem caps, and more on the way. We’re hoping it’ll be live the first week of December and we’ll be sure to get your order out ASAP since all of our goods are being fulfilled in Colorado by The Pro’s Closet’s staff.

Keep your eyes peeled here for an announcement shortly!

A Look at the All New Wizard Works Pelagazam for the Pelago Rasket

I love my Pelago Rasket on my Crust Bikes Dreamer but one of the things I’m not stoked about it is the limited bag offerings. After reaching out to a variety of bag makers, requesting a “custom” bag for my Rasket, the team at Wizard Works threw its wizard cap into the arena and offered to help me out. Well, after a few months, my Pelagazam bag designed specifically to the dimensions of the Raskett, showed up and I shot some initial photos of this nifty bag this morning, so let’s check it out in detail below!

How Good Does the New Swift Industries Dovetail Collection Look?

How Good Does the New Swift Industries Dovetail Collection Look?

Maybe it’s because I like birds, love using Nocs on trips, wear camp hats, and love the Appleton Whittell Research Ranch but to me, this is everything a product collaboration should be. Swift Industries teamed up with artist Wyatt Hersey on a very limited capsule collection, featuring all the products above and more.

 

This collection’s intent is to raise funds for habitat conservation first and foremost but perhaps to help you find goods for your loved one(s) this Holiday season? See the full drop at Swift Industries and be sure to set your alarm for today at 9AM PST because this stuff will sell out fast!

Forager Cycles: New Blue Berry Fundraising Cable Cherries

Remember those Forager Cycles Cable Cherries? These cable ends are reusable, made in the USA, and are a fun way to add color to your cable-actuated brake bikes. Well, this round of Cable Cherries is a collaborative effort between Forager and a local blueberry farm, Bow Hill, who suffered a massive loss recently. A fire started in the refrigerated zone of their production barn and burned nearly all the contents, including a ride-on harvesting machine parked outside. Forager is offering an option to donate at checkout on these new Cable Cherries in hopes to raise money to help out Blue Hill. If you’re looking for a dab of blue on your bike, head to Forager Cycles!

From The Pro’s Closet: You Can Own This Mash Santa Cruz Stigmata

From time to time, we’ll be sharing some bikes that come into The Pro’s Closet stock that are 100% aligned with the readership at The Radavist. MASH is an iconic brand that was one of the first to mesh design, photography, and products quite well, and this MASH edition Stigmata is an embodiment of the brand’s efforts to create limited-edition goods that you can use. That means race, thrash, crash, and put through the wringer. We absolutely love the Stigmata and when Mike and the team at MASH released these bikes back in 2016, they were all the rage.

The Pro’s Closet has this 56cm complete bike bike, as shown, in stock and ready for bell laps – and gravel rides – today for $4,599.99.

Why Cycles Big Iron Fat Bike Gets Updated

The Big Iron is Why Cycles’ flagship fat bike, built around 27.5×4.5” or 26×5” wheels and a titanium chassis.
