Wolf Tooth Acquires RedMonkey Sports and Offers New Grips

I’ve been using the RedMonkey Sports grips for a few years now and their offerings were my favorite in terms of the silicone grip models out there. News dropped this morning that Wolf Tooth has acquired RedMonkey Sports and have added their grip models to their own catalog. This is great news for Wolf Tooth dealers, shops, and consumers alike with five models available to fit just about every rider’s needs.

Check out the full Wolf Tooth grip specs below, straight from the Wolf’s mouth.

Phil Wood’s Got the Golden Touch

Phil Wood’s Got the Golden Touch

Like that Bond villain, Goldfinger, Phil Wood has their own ways of plating their components for the extra bling factor, even on a component that will live out its life hidden from view, such as a bottom bracket. This bottom bracket, in particular, is built with a 103mm JIS spindle with low drag Phil spec carbonyte bearings. It’s not everyday that you see something like this, yet it’s pretty standard issue for Phil Wood to post blinged out items on their Instagram. Give them a follow if you don’t already!

It’s about time we made some camp hats in color. I’ve known Ben from Fairends since the Freeman Transport days (R.I.P.) and I’ve always loved his made in the USA products. Camp hats are great. Also called twill caps, they’re a staple for any wardrobe. These camp hats come in three colors, Olive Drab, Black and Sierra Gold, with a Jackal embroidered on the front, with grey inlay and the Radavist script text on the back.

With Lael and Rue’s exceptional DKXL piece up on the site today, I thought the DK200 winner’s bike would make for a nice addition to today’s coverage. Colin Strickland is a friend from when I lived in Texas. He used to crush the road and ‘cross races and now with his new team, Meteor x Giordana with Kevin Girkins, he’s had great success at the Belgian Waffle Ride and the DK200. Allied has an exceptional bike check up on their blog, so if you’re interested in reading about Colin’s setup, the new Allied Able, you should head on over to check it out.

ANTHM Collective’s Made in Portland Jerseys for Men and Women

The world of MUSA jerseys is surprisingly small for the US being the textile powerhouse it used to be. ANTHM is looking to change that with their made in Portland Merino Wool and Polyester blend jerseys for men and women. Their designs are minimal, with no loud branding or extra flair, perfect for the minimalist who wants functionality over flashy fashion. They make a short sleeve and long sleeve jersey for men and women at a price point akin to synthetic jerseys. Head on over to ANTHM Collective to check out their offerings.

Engin Cycles: CNC Seat Collars

Drew from Engin is one of the most thoughtful framebuilders. Everything he machines in-house is done so the highest degree of precision, while still nodding to the aesthetics demanded from today’s clientele. These seat collars are designed to offer the most evenly distributed clamping force over the largest possible area, reducing the stress on frames and sea posts. You no longer have to over-torque your clamps to keep your post from slipping. Doing so can crack your frame, or your post, and prevent dropper posts from working properly. These clamps are made from 6061 aluminum, are plated in three finishes, feature formed threads to prevent stripping, include 6-2-4-2 titanium fasteners, weigh only 29g and are available in 34.9 clamp diameter only. See more at Engin.

The Winners of the Radavist Leatherman Giveaway!

Giveaways and contests like this are like turning this plane – the website – into a mirror. It opens the viscera to expose how people ride and recreate. All with a simple click! It shows and shares their passions and their communities. That’s the easy part. The hard part is picking winners! After lots of back and forth with a few judges, the two posts that everyone agreed on were these two photos!

Kawika‘s caption didn’t hurt either! “Fuck these half ass tied, fake food flys… but hey, selfie time, get my good side!” ~ Mr. Peacock Bass

Jose‘s group shot on a bikepacking trip around Real de Catorce showcases his community and the caption is so good!

Thanks to everyone who submitted a photo and had fun with it! We had a blast reading through the comments in the original post and checking out the hashtags!

We’ll be sending off a Leatherman Free to each winner.

Contest: Where Would You Take Your Leatherman FREE Tool?

“Where would you take your Leatherman FREE?”

Leatherman’s tools – particularly the Wave – have been staples for us on our travels. From bikepacking or touring, camping, fishing or 4×4 expeditions, we won’t go anywhere without our Leatherman. So when Leatherman added a new product to their lineup, the FREE, we had to try it out. Guess what? We liked it so much that we want to give a few away to the readers of this website. Check out the details below.

Paul Component Engineering and Sim Works Limited Edition Parts!

Brown is one of those colors that is very inconsistant to anodize, often times resulting in a complete scrap of the product run. Most companies won’t work with it, including PAUL, and would rather spend their valuable time making stuff that people can buy! So when our friends at SimWorks hit up PAUL to make a special edition engraved and brown-anodized run of parts, they weren’t exactly stoked to go through with it, but the result is well worth it!

Andrew the Maker: Granny’s Pantry Handlebar Bag

Handlebar bags these days are rather ubiquitous, yet from time to time something new comes on the market that piques my interest. Andrew the Maker’s new Granny’s Pantry bar bag is a semi-rigid bag, utilizing an aluminum brace that is clamped to the bars – 31.8mm only – to keep it stable on rowdy descents. The Granny’s Pantry has a drop in camera insert, a rando-style bag closure system and has a plastic liner to stiffen the body. The use of ABS plastics in bikepacking, touring, and other bags has been a huge benefit for me over the years, as I tend to crush bags accidentally, ruining their profile. The Granny’s Pantry has a lot of clever details and is available for a limited pre-order for $125 now at Andrew the Maker.
