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.
Tenspeed Hero’s 2015 lineup is starting off with a classy ensamble dubbed the Regatta jersey and socks, inspired by, you guessed it, regatta boat races. Available for men and women, in stock now at Tenspeed Hero.

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.

The Athletic are doing their own kind of cancer awareness in October. They’ve done a pair of socks with Cait, which you can pick up at the Athletic and read up on the story here:
“Our friend Cait — you may know her under the moniker @attnkatdaley — had a knock down drag out fight with cancer a little while back. One of the things that she used to help guide her through the dark days was the moniker “You Got This” which she had tattooed on her body as a reminder. Read the story behind it here » What “You Got This” Means To Me.
Her friend (our illustration hero) Chris Piascik did the lettering, which he always does well. ”
Miss ya Cait!

Steal your Shop patches, Steal your Socks and Big-O bottles are now in stock at Golden Saddle Cyclery. Like everything this shop sells, they won’t be in stock long.
Summer weight wool is pretty much the best thing you can put on your feet during the hot months. They dry super fast, are durable and you can wear them multiple days without having to wash due to excessive stank…
These Strawfoot socks are all that and they look great. Highly recommended.
