Alchemy’s Atlas All Road Bike Gets More Customized Options

Custom bikes mean fully-custom to Alchemy. That means layup, geometry, and frame material. The brand recently overhauled their US-made Atlas all road bike to include both titanium and a carbon model (pictured). The Atlas is Alchemy’s modular road model meaning Alchemy can swap out chainstays and a fork to design and fabricate either a classic Atlas road (28mm clearance) or a larger, all-road model (38mm clearance) and that’s just the beginning. For more information, hop on over to Alchemy to see all the details.

Search and State: Tropic Thunder S2-R Skull Jersey

Search and State’s limited edition jerseys are usually an all-over pattern ranging from camo, to palm fronds, and flowers but this one is a bit different. The Tropic Thunder S2-R Skull Jersey looks like nothing the brand has done before, featuring a big, bright design, centered on the back, with a small, subdued branding hit on the chest. These are really wild, so they might not be for everyone, but if you’re interested in them, head to Search and State.

Doom Bars: Bikepacker’s Delight and New Website

I’ve been riding DOOM Bars since the brand first launched last year on my Retrotec singlespeed. Bailey has been sending them on his basket bike and late last year, I added them to my Sklar tourer as well. Today we featured Kyle’s Sklar touring bike, which features the new “Bikepacker’s Delight”, a bar with 19-degree backsweep, a 5” wide stem clamp area (for bags and such), 38mm rise (1.5”), and come shipped at 875mm wide (34.4”), which can be cut to 780mm with a 185mm grip area.

While the black powdercoated Bikepacker’s Delight are sold out, DOOM still has nickel-plated bars in stock (pictured above). These bars are perfect for singlespeeds, trail bikes, tourers, klunkers, and the like. We’re stoked to continue to support New Mexico-based makers and are more than excited to continue to support DOOM in their endeavores.
