Radar Roundup: Weis Stems, Crust Stems, Team Slingshot, Reflections on a Journey, and Tracing The Divide

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

Weis Manufacturing Ti Stems $385

We’ve got two stem offerings for you today. The first being these made in NYC Weis Manufacturing Ti Stems, which are custom made specifically for your bike. Want a 110mm 5º rise stem? Weis can do that. Or a 50mm 0º? Yep. They got that too. Want raw titanium for your finish? No problem! What about these sick designs above?… you get the point. Custom means custom at Weis.

Crust Bikes Face-Off Stem $125

When you size up with your frame, chances are you’ll need to maintain the same reach. One of the ways to offset the larger top tube is to run a shorter stem. These 50mm stems from Crust Bikes are super simple and allow you to swap your bars easily with a removable faceplate. In stock and shipping today at Crust Bikes.

From the Vault: 1992 Slingshot, “The Flexible Bicycle”

“Look, I get it; you came here to hear me rip on just how bad it is. How it must ride on par with how weird it looks. Like, dude, who stole my down tube? “

John recently documented a dozen unique, vintage bikes at The Pro’s Closet, including this team Slingshot bike, complete with a period-correct build spec. If you liked Jared’s basket bike version of the Slingshot, check out how they looked at race spec at The Pro’s Closet.



Reflections on a Journey

A group of MAAP Alt_Road explorers went cycling searching for broken ground in Broken Hill, arguably bit off more than they could chew, got lost, burnt out, and had a blast doing it.



Tracing The Divide

This is a film about two avid cyclists undergoing their biggest bikepacking challenge yet. They decided to ride their bikes from the border of Canada to the border of Mexico across the Continental Divide, unsupported! Follow along on their amazing journey through 5 beautiful states!
