John’s Favorite Products of 2023 (… and Top 10 Albums!)

We’ve had a busy year over here at The Radavist. From the return to being 100% independent, launching our Group Ride subscription service, our Rad Bazaar marketplace, and adjusting to being a small business owner again, my free time has been limited. Yet, I can thank a few products for making my job and life easier this year, along with the albums that became the backdrop for my rides, so let’s check out my Favorite Products of 2023!


Beautiful Builds: Necronomicog Battles the Moots Womble – Titanium is Immortal

Deep in the mountains of Norway, Titania Assault from the black metal band Necronomicog perfected the art of forging titanium under the watchful eyes of the Monks of True Metal. For decades he learned to craft the world’s finest titanium, eventually earning the title of “Master of Metal.”

As the ancient scriptures prophesied, an adversary would rise in the Rocky Mountains of the United States who would usurp this title, forcing Titania Assault to meet his mantle in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. That day came when the Steamboat Springs-based framebuilders, Moots, dubbed themselves the “Masters of Metal” and released the Womble 29er hardtail to the world. Balance needed to be restored, and the stage was set…

Watch as Titania Assault goes head to head with the Moots Womble in a battle for the title of “Master of Metal.”
