One bike brand that has its finger on the pulse of competitive and non-competitive cyclists alike is Bombtrack. John loved the Beyond 2 touring bike and the brand’s Arise and Cale models have been popular over the years. For this launch, Bombtrack rolled out some real gems. The Oxbridge, Munroe Cargo, and Arise are all suited to commuting and cargo…
The Beyond got a refresh and the Hook Titanium and Cale look great for quicker-pace riding. We’re really blown away not at the bikes, but the studio photography by Jason Sellers as well! Feast your eyes upon Bombtrack’s new 2024 lineup.

It’s back and better than ever! The Pronghorn is Revelate’s race focused, lightweight handlebar system for the minimalist bikepacker. Without sacrificing functionality, the Pronghorn is a stripped-down bar mounted carrying system. A key to the system’s performance is a strategically placed internal fiberglass stay that is integrated into both the mounting points and front drybag attachment straps. This keeps your load from shifting while navigating technical singletrack.
The latest Pronghorn update can be found in the drybag. The design is now double-ended, allowing for easier access to the contents of your bag! Made from Challenge Ultra 200 UHMWPE this waterproof bag comes in three sizes to fit every kind of adventure. Please note that in order to retain full waterproof functionality you’ll need to roll the ends of the drybag at least three times.

A multi-purpose organizer that makes a great first aid or med-kit, tool pouch or skin care kit for climbers. The Scout Roll is an organizer that utilizes a magnetic buckle for quick deployment and mesh pockets so you can easily see contents and get to only what ya need. Perfect for a gravel/MTB tool kit or for keeping your bike touring essentials organized and neat. Features a webbing loop for hanging from a tree for your trailside repair or an anchor on a wall to tend to your shredded skin or wounds.
Size is 6”H x 14”L. Weight is ~3oz.
Please allow 1-2 weeks for production and shipping. This is a made to order item. Check out more at Farewell.
The Quick Draw Bottle Pocket can be attached to Wizard Works’ Hobgob Hip Pack allowing you to carry a water bottle. The structured shape allows for one handed access to your bottle whilst riding, and the elastic strap will secure your bidon over the rowdiest of trails.
Two Blackhawk Speed Clips are provided for attaching the Bottle Pocket, which are woven through the webbing onto the wing of the Hip Pack.
Made in-house, London, UK and shipping from Wizard Works.
Previously only available as a titanium handmade bar by the master himself, Steve Potts, these new Siskiyou CrMo Handlebar are now made in Taiwan at a much more affordable pricepoint. Because the Nitto factory in Japan was backed up during the pandemic, these were made in Taiwan. Care was taken to replicate the dull nickel finish that Nitto is known for. These bars are perfect for a rigid MTB or touring bike where you want the control of a flat bar with more hand positions.

Rigid mountain bikes are multi-purpose, capable rigs! This Bender was featured in our MADE Bike Show coverage and is currently for sale, heavily discounted:
“This was a show bike I built for MADE. It is brand new and has never been ridden. It is built up with all the best parts from the best brands in the industry. This bike is a size large of my “Master of None” model.
In short, it’s a bike designed to be adapted to ride whatever is in front of you. The current build kit leans towards commuter mode, but take the fenders and rack off, and you can rip some single track, or throw bags on it for a tour.
This bike has tons of premium parts (list in bio), so don’t sleep on this killer deal. Message with any questions!”

Weird custom cargo bike, unknown builder but nice and yellow. Front basket area fits a 55qt cooler perfectly with a heavy duty topeak rear rack. I threw some Velo Orange Sienne bars on there with PNW grips. Set up 1x right now with some decent range. 26” in the rear and 20”(451) in the front. Fits in between a medium and a large. Pick up in PDX only
I had high hopes of using this perfectly sized camera on bike rides and tours, but mostly reach for my larger cameras instead. Other than a few signs of use on the outer housing, this X100f is in excellent condition – both the lens and screen are nearly perfect. Two batteries and lens cap are included. Check the full specs over at B&H.

Restrap doesn’t just make bikepacking bags and cycling accessories. The brand also lives and breathes bikepacking. Every year the Restrap team plans a big tour that allows them to shakedown their bags and look for ways in which the design team can improve them.
This tour would take us along the Aegean coastline from Dalaman in the south, through the mountain ranges surrounding Izmir and finishing at the historic city of Istanbul.
Full route for this tour can be found at Komoot.
We’re slowly uploading our YouTube content back to The Radavist’s YouTube channel, today we’re sharing our Cerro Gordo film John made with SRAM and James Adamson back in 2019.
