Speedvagen Garage Sale

Speedvagen has unearthed some new old stock steel.

Recently Speedvagen moved its shop, and in doing so, they unearthed some raw frames from our warehouse.

Mostly steel and a few titanium!  As they don’t want these hanging out to be forgotten about again in the warehouse, they are ready to let them go for some pretty dang amazing prices.

Esker Announces Singlespeed Hayduke and Japhy Builds $2,850

While the builds aren’t as blingy as Locke’s Hayduke, this is exciting news for riders who want to try out one of Esker’s exceptional hardtails at a lower complete build option: singlespeed. That’s right, Esker now offers both the Hayduke and the Japhy in singlespeed builds. Simply go to the model pages and select “Singlespeed” under the build kit offerings, which come in at $2,850 for both models.

Ibex’s Lightweight Sun Hoodies $145

Since John got diagnosed with skin cancer last year, he’s been cautious about UV exposure, and while everyone might not live at 7,000′, the sun can damage you while you’re out riding all day. He’s been testing out several sun hoodies from many outdoor brands and has landed on a favorite: the Ibex Sun Hoodie.

These ultralight hoodies can be worn under or over your helmet to keep the sun off your neck and ears, feature thumb loops, and are made from a blend of merino wool and Tencel which means they won’t stink like death after a long day out, will wick moisture–even in the driest of climates, is fast drying, and more durable than traditional merino tops.

Check out the Sun Hoodie for men and women at Ibex.

Nepal’s mysterious and undeniable beauty instantly hits you – flying across its majestic valleys and ridiculously huge mountain ranges, landing in the middle of a stunning ancient culture.
