A compact, stowable foot pump for your bicycle, motorcycle, car or anything that needs to be inflated. The Stompump is very lightweight and very compact. It’s smaller than a can of La Croix and half the weight! The genius in the Stompump is the size of the Piston that moves the air. With it’s larger diameter it moves about 3 times more air than a typical hand pump. This, paired with the fact that you’re using your strongest muscles(your legs) and gravity makes inflating a tire with the Stompump immeasurably easier and so much faster!
The Stompump includes a Frame Dock, Frame-protector pads and a Hook & Loop Safety Strap
Compatible with Presta and Schrader Valves.

North St Bags Upcycled Collection $60-$145
Your favorite North St packs are now built with reclaimed materials. The team at North St rescued 300+ lbs of usable fabric from hitting the landfill and converted the material into panniers, hip bags, backpacks, and more. This line of packs is slated to save over half a ton of waste from the landfill this year, including rugged, highly water resistant vinyl, and super lightweight vinyl mesh.
Because these are made from reclaimed material, each bag is unique and will not match the images exactly.

Our Sillycybin collection was probably our best-selling drop in recent years, selling out lightning fast. We’ve been fielding emails requesting these designs return and we just re-stocked them in time to take advantage of our last day of our 20% sale at The Pro’s Closet…
“Through this trip, I learned how to stand up for myself more and to have that confidence.” – Shanika Rhodes on her bikepacking trip with The Black Foxes.
In this episode of the Impossible Route, Jeremiah Bishop and The Vegan Cyclist take on the “Tour de Gravel.” The concept is to recreate the experience of the hardest-ever stage in the Tour de France’s golden era. Begging the question: is it possible to recreate the experience, finish in the time cut. Not get lost?
A group of friends take off on the VTXL route and documented their time on the bike.

When the seller of John’s 22″ No Serial Ritchey realized the frame was too small for John, he offered to swap it out for a 23″ No Serial Ritchey frame in a nice, periwinkle blue Imron color. John swapped the parts over and added some Inter Am handlebars to the build, putting it over the top… We’ll share a full gallery on this one shortly.
