With the holidays approaching we like to spend some time looking back at 2021 and give some of our favorite products a shout-out. In this post, we look at John’s personal favorite products of the year. Some are cycling-related, others are just solid staples John’s enjoyed using this year, so let’s get to it!
Pelago Bicycles the makers of the popular rack and basket all in one, the Rasket, has just announced a new all-road bike dubbed the Stavanger. It’s designed for gravel riding and bike touring, with lots of cargo bosses, a large front triangle for a framebag, and yes, fenders. These bikes are designed for 650b or 700c riding and come in a legit size run (42cm up to 63cm). Check out all the details at Pelago Bicycles.
I’m not alone when I say how much I love a good basket bike. Typically, you either run a Wald basket with the stock struts and that’s enough. Many people run a Wald, sans hardware, zip-tied to a rack. Pelago has taken the latter and made a rack and basket in one. It’s called the Rasket and it’s a sturdy resolution to create the ultimate basket bike.
Pelago, the Helsinki-based urban bicycle brand, just announced their simple and well-designed racks gained distribution through the US’ premiere bicycle distributor, QBP. Now their racks. including the Rasket combo, can be ordered from any shop that uses QBP.
This collaboration came out really well. The previously mentioned Carhartt WIP x Pelago Bicycles x Mission Workshop collection is now in stock at Mission Workshop.
