Wolf Tooth and King Cage: the Morse Cage

I love seeing collaborations like this. Wolf Tooth components had an idea and could have probably sourced their own fabrication means themselves to make a cage like this, but instead, they reached out to King Cage, because that’s what King Cage does better than anyone. That idea is a cage with various mounting points, to make the best use out of your limited space. The result is something that adds practicality to a tried and true design. Hats off to all parties! Swoop up a Morse Cage at Wolf Tooth.

Big Agnes Announces the Copper Spur UL2 Bikepacking Edition

Finding a tent that strikes a balance between weight and durability is paramount for bikepacking. Then, finding one that has cycling-specific details is near impossible. Luckily for the brand Big Agnes, whose ultralight backpacking tents have been readily co-opted for bikepacking, adapting their most popular models to fit into the activity of bikepacking and bicycle touring was easy.

Big Agnes recently announced the Copper Spur UL1/UL2 Bikpeacking Edition and Fly Creek UL 1/UL2 Bikepacking Edition. The Copper Spur UL2 bikepacking edition tent features shorter tentpole segments, designed to fit between the shifters on a drop bar handlebar, in a frame bag, or just saving room in any pack. The bikepacking specific compression sack is built to withstand the rigors of the trail and designed with a versatile daisy chain attachment system. The tent has bike specific design features including a helmet sleeve under the fly and larger interior storage areas for bike gear.

Both of these models, the Copper Spur and the Fly Creek have been my favorite bikepacking tents for years and I cannot wait to see this system in person. Check out more detailed photos below, and keep an eye on Big Agnes for more information! (more…)

No22 Frames and Search and State: Made in NY Collection

No22 and Search and State are two powerhouse cycling brands, both based in New York. When it comes to precision, both of these brands can proudly wear that badge of honor so it would make sense they would team up on a Made in New York collection. In SAS’ tradition, this cycling kit is minimal, with a focus on fit and performance. Included in the lineup is a base layer, riding vest, bibs, and a jersey. See the full collection at No22 and see more photos below.

A Hardtail for Hypebeasts: Supreme x Santa Cruz Chameleon

Do not adjust your phone, pad, laptop, or desktop computers. This is a real collaboration and you know what? I think it’s awesome. In a completely surprising move, Supreme, purveyors of random wares and streetwear, have teamed up with Santa Cruz Bicycles on a limited edition Chameleon hardtail. Check out the preview at Supreme and expect this to “drop” shortly. Thanks to Johnnie Davis for the heads up! Rumor has it retail will be $2,500.

Check out our review of the Santa Cruz Chameleon in the Related sidebar.

Doping’s Worst Excuses

I think at this point, we have to accept the fact that athletes are going to dope, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find doper’s excuses humorous!

Box Dog Bikes Was Broken Into

San Francisco’s Box Dog Bikes was broken into yesterday and the thieves took a ton of Kona, Salsa, and All-City completes. For shops like Box Dog, this is a huge blow, as the thieves took almost all of their stock. If you live in the Bay Area, keep an eye out for the models, which are listed below. Head to Box Dog Bikes’ Instagram for more information.

When You’re Late to the Trailhead Meetup


skrrrrrrrrrrt

Last night, Cache, Jimmy, and myself escaped the city heat for the higher elevations in LA. After shooting Jimmy’s new bike, we took a dirt road back down and shot Cache’s 1992 Subaru Loyale. Don’t worry, Cache is probably going 15mph in that photo, it just looks fast because it’s an uphill, right turn. I don’t advocate reckless driving!

Expect Jimmy’s new bike up on the site next week. I hope everyone’s stayin’ cool out there!
