As a manufacturer of products built on the belief that quality is of the utmost importance, Chris King is always eager to learn about other like-minded manufacturers. One such business is Portland manufacturer Grovemade, makers of modern and sophisticated wood based office supplies and personal electronic accessories. See photos at Chris King!
The Radavist top caps feature the Talisman logo, the Jackal, the ægishjálmr (Helm of Awe) and remind you to keep that Rubber Side Up. Made in the USA by Kustom Caps and shipped from Austin, TX. These come in black only and are to be used with 1 1/8″ steerers.
These are sold in sets of four only and are very limited, so swoop for $40 shipped worldwide. We’ll get these out to you on Monday.
When it comes to a touring bike, the randonneur bag or Wald basket will reign supreme for front-end portage, but not every bike has rack mounts. In the case of a classic road bike, or MTB, strap on handlebar bags are the simplest solution to carrying extra cargo around town.
There are countless options, ranging from cordura, to cotton, but for those looking for something a little classier, check out the Tanner Goods Porter Handlebar Bag. I’ve been keen on trying one out since the line was first launched and since using mine for around a month, I’m loving it…

I love a good camp mug, especially one with a message. Pick up this Travel Slow mug at Cadence.
Gotcha! Hopefully you all know the significance of this new design from Mash. See this cap and other products at their web shop.
Sometimes, even the simplest designs make for the most interesting everyday items. I first saw the Pelican Clip on my friend Errin’s Instagram and asked him about it. I liked how, I dunno, it wasn’t a carabiner!
Here’s the link to the Pelican Clip web shop, where they’re $12.
Portland-based leather portage and accessory company Tanner Goods returns this year with their new and improved Cycling Collection. I got to see this line in-person at NAHBS this year and the whole line was incredibly impressive.
The Cycling Collection includes a Courier Saddle Bag, an Excursion Frame Bag and my favorite, the Porter Handlebar Bag. Each bag is available in three colors (burnt oak, charcoal, field tan) and is in stock now at Tanner Goods!
Also, you can see the burnt oak Cycling Colleciton below.
What better way to top off your Nitto stem on your tourer than with a Rivendell magnet?
It’s spring time, that means for those of you who live in frigid parts of the world, shaving has slowy made its way back into your morning routine – for us Texans, we never really quit.
Let’s be honest here for a second: I enjoy shaving about as much as I enjoy doing product reviews like this and while prior to being gifted this tin, I was more likely to use soap or shampoo to shave with, I do love the way this cream smells!
I’m amazed at how simple this new product from Bookman is. Their new Cup Holder has no hardware, it just clips onto your bars and holds a cup of coffee for easy transport. Colors? You bet and yes, it comes in black! Pre-order now at Bookman.
Yesterday I received my Spurcycle bell in the mail and immediately installed it on my Geekhouse Woodville. With all the madness of SxSW enveloping Austin, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
The packaging is well thought out, the bell is simple, all metal (save for some rubber bushings) and the black finish almost disappears on a my handlebars. I know a bell might not seem like that big of a deal, but I am stoked on how great they look.
Now I just need to put one on the MTB…
They’re in the process of shipping all their (10,000) Kickstarter backers at the moment, but there is a pre-order going on now with a spring ship estimate. Head over to Spurcycle now to reserve one!
Look, I already feel a bit self-conscious about how much PiNP encourages our consumer habits but it’s a part of life and I’d rather direct you to some legitimate holiday goods, then have you read some bogus list elsewhere. Most of these products on this list are in my personal collection and have become staples in my day to day life.
Some notes: Buy local if you can, your local bike shop probably sells gift certificates, so support them first and foremost. Most of these products are more “lifestyle” than cycling-related but there’s more to life than bike shit, right? Finally, most of these products are made in the USA!
Check out a few choice products you could buy this holiday season below!
This video for Gothamist and Speck is pretty funny, but what happens when your phone goes into a puddle?
Oh and sup Mikey?!
The guys at Pentabike are back at it and I’m stoked. One of my all-time favorite accessories is back in stock, the Black N Brass Muststach “bar end one-hitter”. I shouldn’t have to explain what makes this bar end so special, but if you need a history lesson, check the archives.
See the full Pentabike line here!
I like simple accessories like this and Peonfx has done a great job here. Scoop up a Ride Cushion here!
Ruckus’ Carbon Access Tool is pretty nifty. I got one in the mail as I was heading out for Australia, so I didn’t get the chance to mess with it but everything about the C.A.T. was spot-on. The dudes at Ruckus have a Kickstarter for the C.A.T., so head over and check that out. Or, if you like bidons, have you seen the Joe Biden bidons?
