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

Restrap Full Frame Bag

Restrap now offers more features than ever before, with increased compartmentalization and capacity without compromising on versatility and functionality. This allows riders to organize their loadout, or use the full space of the bag for larger items and hydration packs.

Two Aquaguard YKK zips on the drive side of the bag allow easy access to the top and bottom sections of the bag, with internal velcro dividers to separate the compartments. These dividers aid the structure of the bag when fully packed, but also fold away to allow use of the full internal space of the bag if needed. The non-drive-side of the bag contains a document pocket, useful for storing smaller items on the go.

The bag is made from durable, textured nylon outer and VX21 fabrics, with a wipeable lower section that means the bag is easy to keep clean when riding off-road or in adverse weather. Rubberized strapping provides extra grip to the frame and webbing straps, with easy-to-use cam locking buckles, keeping the bag sitting securely and free of movement while riding.

Behind The Builder: James Bleakley of Black Sheep Bikes

James Bleakley got his start in the early 90’s working at Boulder Bicycles. As he made his way up to lead welder, he was in search of a better work-life balance. A few more years after that, he finally launched his own line of custom bikes named Black Sheep Bikes. Along the way, he has won Best Big Weld and Best Titanium Bike both at NAHBS.. finished the Leadville 100 thirteen times on a singlespeed, and has become notoriously known for his curvy titanium frames, forks and handlebars.
