I love seeing new school and old school cycling brands come together on really simple designs like this longsleeve t-shirt from Cadence and Ritchey. Head over to Cadence to swoop!
When you pair Kyler Martz with Geoff McFetridge in a drop, you know it’s gonna be good. Golden Saddle Cyclery just loaded up their web shop with a few new shirts. The Righty-O shirt in a long sleeve and the Dropper pocket shirt. Head on over to Golden Saddle Cyclery for stock!
We all know Team Dream makes some great gear but this season’s drop has really raised the bar for the brand. With new jerseys, bibs, shirts, socks and accessories, there’s something for everyone, at any pricepoint. My personal favorites are the Thin Stripe and Dots Jerseys as well as the Thin Stripe Socks and the Chubby Bobcat Pocket T.
One of my favorite stories from Norse Mythology relates to nature’s impact on man. Scandanavian warriors would often wear the skin of a bear or a wolf before entering battle, resulting in the spirit of the animal possessing them in battle. As Odin’s personal army the Berserkir were known for ferocity as well as loyalty as they fought for the pack leader. In fact the Old Norse word berserkir, literally translates to “bear-shirt” and was soon called “going berserk.”
Venturing into the woods, be it during an expedition, or just an everyday ride, we too can find ourselves transformed. Every time we push ourselves on the bike, or subsequently find ourselves pushed off the bike, we grow – #RubberSideUp. This introspective experience not only shapes us as riders, but it continues to strengthen our relationship with nature. If anything deserves respect, it’s the woods.
This image of the Berserkir, or Úlfhéðnar, is further empowered by the Norse protection symbol, the Vegvísir, which is a direction sign that enables you to stay the course without being lost. Something extremely beneficial to cyclists.
Drawn by Kyler Martz and screened in Austin by Industry Printshop, these American Apparel pocket tees are $25 + shipping. Available in
black and white. These will ship this week. Expect around a 2-week delivery time for international orders. Scoop one up below.
SORRY SOLD OUT
When Manual for Speed does something, they go above and beyond. Now, above what or beyond where is open to interpretation, but one thing’s for sure: these cats are wild. Wild, but chill.. and that’s exactly what Kasual Klub is all about. Chilling. Well, that and this:
“What is Kasual Klub? It’s a Vibe, a Crü, and a Collection of Clothes For Sale. And a Klub, obvs. There are only two ways to get in the Klub: 1) Turn yourself into an exceptionally gifted World Class Human Athlete (or equivalent), or 2) buy a Kasual Klub clothing item now available for sale in our “store”. That’s it; one way is really fucking hard, and pretty much impossible, the other way means you just have to buy a cotton t-shirt or some insane technical socks.”
See some more Kasual Klub flicks below and check the lineup at Manual for Speed.
All cops are bastards?
All cabs are bastards?

Boda Boda NYC and TCB Courier – that’s East Coast and West Coast – have teamed up on a limited run of shirts, designed by Tom Guenther and literally flying off the shelves now. Head on over to TCB Courier to swoop!
Matt Cardinal’s Daily Derailleur Instagram illustrations are amazing and after many requests, he’s begun putting them on t-shirts. So far, a Shimano shirt has popped up, with what appears to be a Paul derailleur shirt in queue. Head over to Matt’s Instagram to follow the sales and TeeSpring to order one of the Shimano shirts.
Edit: Matt just updated the TeeSpring site to include a web store with three designs, including the Paul derailleur.
By using the old Japanese method of Shibori tie-dye and reflective printing by ICNY, these new Manual for Speed shirts take your casual wardrobe to new levels. Problem is, they’re probably going to sell out faster than you can say SPEED 3x…
Jeremy Powers teamed up with Rapha and the Pros Closet to sell a commemorative shirt, celebrating his national championship titles. Proceeds will go to the JAM Fund cycling program to help cover the costs incurred at the USA Cycling Cyclo-Cross National Championships (Austin, Texas says sorry!) and to continue to raise funds for The JAM Fund’s upcoming 2015 cyclocross season. Head over to JPows.com to order.
Tired of the industry always switching technology up on you? Sick of hearing those squealing disc brakes on the cross course behind you? Or hearing people talk about how “cantis suck?” Don’t like the added weight? Or having to bleed them? Or maybe you just don’t need ’em. “Cross bikes look so great with cantis!” What’s next? Dropper posts? Suspension? Full face helmets? Baggies? Where does it end? Downhill crossie races? Is it just too much? Why don’t the Europeans use them? Don’t fondo my crossie, bro!
Whatever the reason, I couldn’t help but be stoked on these new Death Before Discs shirts, even if, yeah, disc brakes aren’t so bad. Scoop up a shirt or a sticker pack at Death Before Discs and remember guys, it’s all in good fun…

Raidō, or “the ride”, and Algiz, or “protection”, two runes from the Elder Futhark which hold special meaning to the Radavist. Depending on orientation, these runes’ meaning can change, so the inverted pattern ensures a safe journal and arrival. With the Talisman on the back and the Jackal on the front, this shirt has all the markings of the Radavist.
Printed on American Apparel black longsleeve tees with eco-friendly discharge ink here in Austin by Industry Print Shop, these shirts are $40 shipped to the USA only! Sorry to international orders, but with the holidays rapidly approaching, I want to ensure people can receive their orders in time.
Pick one up below! SORRY SOLD OUT!
Los Angeles’ Golden Saddle Cyclery always kills it in the product department. They’ve just re-stocked some classics and brought in some new products. The Sean Talkington-designed DeFeet socks and Geoff McFetridge-designed shirt are my favorite and if you’re lacking on stem caps, they’ve got the full color spectrum to match your Paul or Chris King products.
Head over to Golden Saddle Cyclery to see what’s currently available.
Last month, Mike Flanigan made the announcement that he’ll be closing the doors to ANT and accepting a welding position at Seven Cycles. Mike is very much tied to the Boston-area and frame building, originally working for Fat City Cycles and more recently, opening a small frame-building school of his own, all while making his “Alternative Needs Transportation” bikes.
The Northeast is the US’ backbone for framebuilding and it’s sad to see Mike close ANT, but I’m glad to see he’ll still be making frames.
If you’d like to help Mike out with his relocation costs, he’s selling commemorative shirts, hats, chainrings and head badges as a meager fundraiser. Head over to the ANTBikeMike blog for more details.
I love the Speedvagen race truck, both because it really is one of the most unique team vehicles I’ve ever seen and its paint job is so Speedvagen… The guys at ICNY have teamed up with SV to make a limited run of “Money Truck” t-shirts. Head over to Speedvagen now to see more!
