Moontower Bike Co. is a fledgling bike brand out of Austin, Texas. The owner, Scott, has been in the prototyping stage for manufacturing and has been designing accessories like bars and grips while prototyping bike models. He also builds handmade bicycles for special needs at my framebuilding shop. Moontower focuses on commuter, touring, and transportation bikes, with a focus on diversity. It is very a small brand, but are hoping to get started with some small stuff like accessories to get this little company some momentum.
Currently, Moontower offers two products in its online shop: Pride or Die grips and its Moontower Risers.

Cascada recently renewed the Trail Shirt with a new fabric that is as soft as cotton, but with higher technical performance.
Soft as the classic cotton t-shirt, with a more classic aesthetic and less tech look, the new Trail short sleeve t-shirt maintains the same comfortable and loose unisex fit to offer maximum comfort on bike or running adventures.
Breathable, light and stretchy, the short-sleeve Trail jersey keeps you cool and dry on summer days thanks to its quick-drying polyester fabric, wicks sweat away from the skin and promotes rapid evaporation.
The 4-ways stretch fabric facilitates the freedom of movement and the T-Shirt’s superlight weight will not even seem to have it on. Label-free neck for anti-itch comfort and a drop tail hem to keep your shirt in place during movement.
Ideal for multiple outdoor pursuits, the Trail t-shirt becomes a perfect garment for whatever you have planned.
Women should size down one size.
Made in Italy

With the classic ratchet fastener, you can easily adjust the width of your pants with a single movement. The two zipper pockets securely hold your phone and essentials.
