Radar Roundup


Radar Roundup

We’re rolling out some new things for 2022 and that includes our Radar Roundup where we take some of the news items to come across our inboxes into an easy-to-digest dump of sorts, culling down the clutter from our homepage and making it easier to stay on top of what’s going on in our little corner of the cycling industry. This will come particularly in handy when it comes to spring/summer product drops from our favorite brands.

Check out our first Radar Roundup below with products, videos, and a Radavision entry…

Ride Farr Twin-T Cromo Frame-Kit Duck Egg Blue

Coming in hot from South Africa’s Ride Farr is their Twin-T Cromo Frame-Kit in Duck Egg Blue. This bike reminds me of those old Nishiki Alien, Mantis Valkyrie, or even the old Moots Malcolm. It harkens to a time when bike design was anything but permutations on a theme or predictable and that’s why we dig it. Ride Farr offers these for $895.00 as a pre-order with early 2022 slated for delivery.
