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

Wireless Rock Lobster Gravel Frame XL $1,699.99

It’s been a while since we featured a used bike from TPC’s lineup, but this Rock Lobster is too good to pass up! With a wild paint job on the fork, stem, and post, tied in with the signature Rock Lobster mint color, and no ports for cable-actuated shifting (AXS only!), this will build up a real beaut. Check it out at The Pro’s Closet.

Wolf Tooth Espresso Color

How bout a shot of ‘spro this morning? Wolf Tooth just announced its newest anodizing color: Espresso.

Espresso joins eight other permanent anodized accent colors: red, orange, gold, green, blue, purple, black, and silver. These are colors that are available on nearly everything from headsets, to ReMotes, to seatpost clamps, to grips. A handful of limited edition colors exist in a few special items. Pink, teal, and olive green were announced earlier this year as limited options for ReMote, ReMote Light Action, and a few other pieces.

All Wolf Tooth color options can be found on the Wolf Tooth Color Shop, which is a new way to shop for anodized components, accessories, and multi-tools. Color Shop allows customers to sort all items by color. This can show everything that comes in blue, for example, from single speed cogs, to the 6-Bit Hex Wrench Multi-Tool, to CAMO System Chainring Spiders, and more. The Color Shop sorting option can also sort by limited color so folks can see items that are made in smaller quantities.

Check out the full Espresso catalog at Wolf Tooth.

SOMA Double Cross Frames and Forks Back in Stock $649.99 + $ 169.99

The SOMA Double Cross frameset is a terrific option for those looking for an all-rounder with touring capabilities, and with fresh stock hitting SOMA’s shelves, we had to share. These new matte purple frames sport a Tange front triangle, double-butted rear, and they come in 10 sizes: 42cm up to 66cm.

Check out more at SOMA.

Rocket Ramps Launches in Santa Fe and Beyond!

Available in 3′, 5′, and 7′, these modular, precision built, and shred-worthy ramps are designed and built right here in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The team at Rocket Ramps wanted to create a ramp that could be shipped flat and assembled anywhere. Be it a dirt jump park, or your local airbag, these ramps are engineering to take constant abuse and to launch you at the perfect angle. John spent the day out with the boyz at a local DJ spot and maybe we’ll post his photos now that this project has left the ground! Check out all the details at Rocket Ramps!



Baja and Portra

Christmas looked a little different this year. We traded Christmas trees for palms and eggnog for horchata. We flew into San Jose del Cabo and took a bus north so that we could ride back south along the Sea of Cortez. Along the way, I took some film photos. At first, I struggled with how to share these photos. It has always seemed odd to take such an analog process and make them live as digital photos on the internet. After printing these film photos, I decided to do something even odder. Hopefully, the sounds of thumbing through prints give these photos a bit more life.



The Making of Standing Boy Trails | Columbus, GA

Meet some of the pivotal team members who brought the Standing Boy Trails system to life — a system two decades in the making. The many local stakeholders behind this project partnered with IMBA to plan and design 25 miles of singletrack in a multi-phase plan that includes shared-use trails, bike-only directional trails and trails for all skill levels.


The Athlete Edits: Tomomi Nishikubo x Esperanto

Of all the segments in Esperanto, Tomomi Nishikubo’s undoubtedly stands out the most. Set to beautifully appropriate music, the Japanese trials rider takes his precision bike handling skills to the streets of Tokyo in a mind-blowing performance.

Touring the Outback has been a longtime dream of mine and so when we got tagged in this post on Instagram, I had to feature it. Don’t miss the beautiful details found within this water color! See more in the slides at @allthegear.illustrated – John
