Campandgoslow recently collaborated with Neza at What Happened to craft a run of bags using damaged rolls of bar tape for trim. The fabrics are primarily deadstock from a local mill end shop and some leftover yardage from a few DIY projects. The bags will be available in very limited quantities beginning this Saturday (4/2) at 12:00pm PST and will likely sell out fast! Rattlesnake bar tape will also be restocked on Saturday with updated packaging that’s made in PA from lightweight ripstop nylon.
Set your alarms for 12:00pm on 4/2 and head over to Campandgoslow
From Reynolds: Traction and comfort on any terrain, Reynolds G700 and G650 carbon wheels, will handle it all. Featuring a 25mm wide hookless and tubeless channel that matches perfectly with modern bigger gravel tires in both 700c and 650b sizes.

Our new Ringlé SRX road/gravel hub is designed to perform in all conditions so you can get the most out of your adventure and – your ride.
This year’s edition of the FoCo Fondo takes place on July 24 and promises to bring an eventful weekend of Northern Colorado’s legendary mixed terrain with both race and ride experiences. This is not your granddaddy’s Fondo. This is not an old, stodgy, leather chamois, road race ride. This is a foot out, flat out, dirt, gravel, mixed terrain, make it to the finish and win a bolo tie kind of event. Saturday, get in a shake-out ride, tours at New Belgium, and enjoy some live music. Sunday, strap in for a classic Colorado big ride day experience with one of FoCo Fondo’s five routes, or race your heart out for cash and prizes. Make it back to the finish line for favorite local food trucks, live music, Fat Tire beer, and soak up the Fort Collins vibe.
We’re planning to be there documenting the event and hope to see you! Registration is open over at FoCo Fondo
