Bastion Cycles ArchAngel Disc Road

The Bastion ArchAngel is a true masterpiece of engineering, designed and developed entirely in-house. It is a marvel of form, function, and texture. Every detail of the bike has been sculpted with precision and purpose, evoking the sleek lines and spirit of the world’s first titanium-skinned aircraft, the A-12 ArchAngel. A new design icon inspired by the legend of the aircraft that bears the same name.

Every element of the ArchAngel has been meticulously designed, and every component has been curated to contribute to the bike’s enhanced aesthetic and performance. Bastion prides itself on its relationships with the world’s top component brands, and the ArchAngel project is the ultimate showcase of this alignment. From the frame to every single component, every detail has been carefully selected to elevate the overall experience of the rider.

With only 88 units available, and 25% already allocated, the ArchAngel is sure to be a highly sought-after collector’s item. Limited in production, this bike is for the discerning cyclist who demands nothing but the best. The price is available upon request, a true indication of its prestige. While not exclusively reserved for existing clients, priority will be given to those who own or are in the process of purchasing one of Bastion’s other models. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of cycling history.

The ArchAngel is available to order via The Service Course – custombikes@theservicecourse.cc

Ocean and San All Day Shirts in New Colors $75/$82

While we’re big fans of The Radavist Edition Ocean and San jerseys, these earth tones hit a different note and all three colors are now available in short and long-sleeve versions. Made in Los Angeles, perfect for year round racing, relaxed, but not baggy fit; the All Day Shirt is for casual riders who don’t identify with skin tight lycra, but still want a jersey with cargo pockets.

Roll on over to Ocean and San to see the new offerings.




Backyard Bike Camping

Home is Where The Trails Take You – Bikepacking in the Cairngorms National Park

‘Home Is Where The Trails Take You’, a new film from filmmaker Markus Stitz, documents a gravel bikepacking journey through the Cairngorms to meet the people that call the National Park home.

Featuring Sally Devlin and Calum MacGregor from Aviemore Bikes, Toni Vastano from the Old Post Office Cafe Gallery, David Keegan from Bothy Bikes, Annie Armstrong from Wild Braemar, Richard Watts from Cyclehighlands, and Nash Masson from Ride Scotland, the film captures the strong connection between local people and businesses in the Cairngorms National Park, the activity of cycling and the surrounding natural environment.

The Cairngorms National Park is home to one quarter of Scotland’s native forest and 25 percent of the UK’s endangered species. Half of the Cairngorms has been recognised as being of international importance for nature. The new 165 mile (266 km) bikepacking route, designed by Bikepacking Scotland in partnership with VisitCairngorms, follows old military and drovers roads through the UK’s largest area of high ground, regarded as climatically, geomorphologically and biologically the most extensive ‘arctic’ area in the UK.

Check out the route at RideWithGPS.
