TUNED: A Black and Asian Owned Boutique Bike Service Shop in Brooklyn, NY

It seems like only yesterday, Tijon Randall was wrenching client bikes in the basement of his Brooklyn apartment due to COVID-19 shutting down shops across the country. Prior, Tijon was one of the mechanics at a local bike shop in Manhattan when the coronavirus pandemic was at its peak, including the one he worked at. Thankfully, Tijon’s relationship with clients was strong enough that the demand for repairs, maintenance, and builds kept him afloat as everyone was trying to figure out how and when it was safe to re-open stores and businesses again. This new reality showed that he might be able to fulfill his once-longshot dream of opening his own shop. And just like that, TUNED, a boutique bike shop in Brooklyn, New York, was born.

A Jacket to Last a Lifetime: Search and State’s S1-J Riding Jacket

My old S1-J (from 2015!) was a staple for road and dirt road riding back in the day. I used that jacket on just about every ride, tossing it in a handlebar or hip bag, any time I pedaled into the unknown microclimates of the coastal California mountain ranges and beyond. Then, one day at a bike event, it went missing. It’s been a while since Search and State have made the S1-J but it’s back this year after a two-year hiatus. Take it from someone who let one get away, don’t miss this opportunity if you’re shopping for a new jacket…
