Sometimes you want a framebag and a water bottle cage and that’s ok. The Better Half Frame Bag solves this problem with a new Fidlock magnetic closure system. These bags are designed to fit gravel bikes with about 10º or less of top tube slope.

The Better Half Frame Bag comes in two sizes, designed to fit various headtube lengths.

Small: likely in the 46cm-58cm frame size range with head tube lengths around 75-170 millimeters. 2.5″ or less of the head tube between the top tube and down tube.
Large: frames in the 58cm-63cm range, with 180-230-ish millimeter head tubes. 3-4.5″ of head tube between the top tube and down tube.

We Restocked our Camp Hats (Finally!)

First of all, can we just say “THANK YOU” for your patience? A lot of you pre-paid for these hats back in May when they were supposed to be in stock in June. Well, with supply chain shortages at the cotton factory it took four extra months to get our new run of Camp Hats in stock. This season, we went with the popular Caliche (brown), River Rock (cool grey), and Obsidian (black). These are the exact same caps as our last run, with a brass closure, brushed organic cotton fabric, our folk-art inspired Jackal on the front, and The Radavist text logo on the back.

They’re in stock now for $45 at the Radavist Web Shop.

Blue Lug Makes Da Brim Look Cool

Chances are, you’ve seen Da Brim before. I know you have. Usually, it’s the cyclo-tourists on the Adventure Cycling Bicycle Route 66, or the TransAmerica Trail that wear these kooky devices.

Let’s be real, skin cancer is a very real threat and keeping your nose, ears, and neck protected from the relentless sun is only going to get more important in the coming years.

Our friends at Blue Lug know how to take a product like Da Brim and make it look cool, meshing safety with fashion.

What do you think? Excessive sunblock? Or a kooky (in a good way) sum brim?
