Radar Roundup: Black Ripton, OD Bubbly, Romanceür, Texada, North Shore Betty, and Rigs of RAR

Our Radar Roundup compiles products and videos from the ‘net in an easy-to-digest format. Read on below for today’s findings…

Ripton’s Jorts in Diesel Black for Men and Women $79

We love Ripton’s Jorts for MTB and gravel riding. Hell, they even look good off-the-bike. For those who like to don all black, we’ve got good news. These popular shorts now come in an overdyed jet-black “Diesel” color. In stock for men and women.

Sim Works Bubbly Pedals in Cerakote Green $98

Sim Works’ Bubbly Pedals were quite popular when they were announced last year, with the limited edition brown color selling out almost immediately. This year’s limited color is a green cerakote, perfect for your OD green bike. Roll on over to Sim Works to check them out!

Crust Bikes Romanceür Pre-Order $1,475

Are you ready to leave the world of 44mm head tubes, disc brakes, and super stiff bikes that require suspension stems and seat posts? Well… have we got some news for you! The Crust Bikes Romanceür canti is now available for pre-order in that lovely pistachio green Ronnie has. Oh and there’s a disc version too, which is equally as snazzy. The Pre-Order is live now with an end of May delivery at Crust Bikes.
