These wrenches will serve you for headset adjustments, pedal removal, rack hardware tightening, and maybe a roach clip if you’re creative. When Rivendell puts through the wringer, you know it’s a worthwhile purchase. Roll on over to Rivendell to see more!
Inspired by meteorites, a Finnish lake, and equipped to tackle gravel races, tours, and more, the Sage Storm King GP has quite the paint job, inspired by an elaborate story we won’t even attempt to paraphrase. It’s better if you see the photos and read all about it at Sage.
Ronnie and those chubby bobcats at Team Dream teamed up again on a second run of these luxurious wool boxers and riding shorts. These unpadded shorts feature a calf skin chamois for the ultimate in comfort and crotch health. LaRon and TDT worked with a more durable, softer wool that can be washed more frequently than the previous version of these shorts. LaRon is shipping these out in two weeks so if you’re curious, now’s the time to pick up a set. Yes, they’re pricey, but they’re made in Italy like Gucci loafers and Lambos. What do you expect? Head on over to Rons Bikes to see more.

We’ve featured Ultra Romance’s Romanceur builds many times over the years, with his latest build showcase landing last spring. Well, Ronnie’s been tinkering with his build and has a nice video showcasing this build.
ALONG FOR THE RIDE is a short film about bike-parenting, a reflection on the positive impact of one family’s bikepacking experiences together as the father and three-year-old son, Oliver, embark on a 320km gravel race together to honour their shared time on the trail.
Born in a garage with a single drill press and a dream, Lolo Racks has grown from engineer Joseph Oshman’s dream to build a better rack for his family to a booming bike rack company with customers around the world. Despite the company’s growth and move from Joseph’s home to their own building with state-of-the-art machinery, the passion and dedication remains. That passion doesn’t just extend to the finished product and a constant tweaking on bike rack designs. Joseph and Lolo Racks are equally passionate about American manufacturing from the welders and fabricators in-house to the local steel purchased, local powder coaters and painters, these racks wear their Made in America labels with pride.
