Readers’ Rides: Matt’s Ol’ Gary Fish tASSaJARa

Matt bought this classic Fisher MTB frame for $50 with the hopes of having a good ’round towner. Like all bikes, it’s going through various iterations over the years, with what you’re seeing now being the most current and arguably the best. I guess it depends how the parts bin and jewelry box are lookin’ ya know?

The Radavist Authors’ Favorite Small Business Products: John Watson

John Watson picks up this series we began with Ryan Wilson during the pandemic. Consider this a shout out to our favorite small businesses in the cycling industry. Here are some of John’s personal picks.

Small businesses are the foundation of the outdoor industry and many have been seriously impacted by the pandemic over the last couple of months. While money is understandably tight for a significant portion of people, if you do have the means and are dreaming up your next bike trip or local ride, I wanted to offer up a few suggestions for gear that I believe is worthy of investing in from some of my favorite small businesses in the industry.

Wolf Tooth and King Cage: Gold Morse Cages

If there’s one thing that’s consistent across all my personal builds, it’s King Cage. I either have Wolf Tooth’s Morse cages or the original classics. For those looking for some extra bling, Wolf Tooth just made a limited batch of gold Morse Cages in titanium and stainless. They’re in stock now and ready to ship at Wolf Tooth!

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.

So… I’ve seen these before, but never had a chance to pick up a set, or photograph them in action. Luckily, Ocean Air Cycles did both of those for us. Ron at King Cage makes these. They’re essentially a hose clamp with a bottle boss welded onto it, allowing you to ad bottle cages to virtually any area of your bike. Just make sure you wrap your frame or fork with a protective tape as shown. Head to your local King Cage dealer to scoop up a set!

King Cage Celebrates #MadeintheUSA with Free Shipping and Hardware

King Cage makes titanium bottle cages in Durango, Colorado. Ron’s one of my favorite personalities in the “industry” and I commend him taking a stance like this on his Instagram. I don’t know why anyone would buy a titanium bottle cage made in China when King Cage makes them in the USA for the same price.

To celebrate bad-ass made in the USA cages, Ron is offering a free water bottle, FREE made in the USA Paragon Machine Works hardware with his cages, along with free shipping in the month of December. Take advantage of this sale and celebrate made in the USA products.

When some design companies sell cycling products, they just slap a label on some Taiwanese blanks, but House Industries isn’t just anyone. They’ve done an amazing job, sourcing products that were made domestically. From PAUL, to Brooks, Tanner Goods, King Cage and even Waterford-constructed framesets, the House Industries Velo Collection is filled with products that will last a lifetime.

… and as I just found, it’s hard to not add a lot of it to your check out basket!

See more at House Industries and again, smashing job guys!

2013 Interbike: Gallery 02

Each year, I’m already over Vegas come Thursday and it has little to do with the tradeshow and a lot to do with the fact that it’s the end of the ‘travel season’ for me. That and the excessive bourbon drinking. Hey, things get a little out of hand. This year however, I got to solidify a lot of relationships through tradeshow pain. It’s kind of like surviving a near-death experience with someone, ya know?

Anyway, Interbike is hell but there are a lot of rad components, companies and people in hell, so it’s a pretty good time. What was my pick on the second day? The Feedback Sports Velo Hinge. I’m already planning on installing 8 in my office. That and this rad flask from King Cage!
