If you’re in the greater Los Angeles area this weekend, head on over to the Cub House in San Marino. Our friends at Team Dream are having a sneak peek at their winter launch jerseys and other goodies, along with other festivities, and it looks like it’ll be a hoot!

Team Dream’s first drop since the pandemic hit is one that looks to raise money for LA Bicycle Academy to help fight systematic oppression for black cyclists. Their All Proceeds Product Launch bundle kit has sold out but they still have a pre-order live for these graphic t-shirts.
Team Dream will be donating a total of $27 from each T-shirt, $25 from each water bottle set and $62 from every bundle to support the work of the Los Angeles Bike Academy and The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
We got the keys to The Cub House 2.0 in June of 2017. We’d been at our original little shop in South Pasadena for a couple of years and I was extremely nervous about the move to much more “upscale” San Marino, even though it was only a few short blocks away. San Marino definitely has a reputation for being rigid, so The Cub House stands out here. Like REALLY stands out. Have you seen our spot? There aren’t too many multicolor service station turned Bike & Plant Stores in our area.
For those looking for some fresh threads from Team Dream this winter, wait no longer for their entire holiday drop is live on their webshop now, featuring jerseys, vests, base layers, tees, hats, caps, and more. Head on over to Team Dream to check it all out!

Team Dream took their VW Squareback up to the Angeles Crest to document their new Tie Dye collection with the ENDO CNCPT Team. If this video gets your vintage VW juices flowin’ check out the photos I shot last year when we featured Sean’s Cannondale. The ENDO CNCPT kit is coming July 11th to Teamdreambicyclingteam.com.
… and just in time for the 4th of July. Head on over to Team Dream to find new shirts, socks, cycling wears, accessories, or just check out the great photography!
Over the past few months, the Cub House has been host to a number of pop-up shops inside its San Marino space. There’s a 10’x10′ room which happens to make for a perfect space for brands to display their product. This round, Sean, Danny, and Carla reached out to Japan’s Sim Works to open a “convenie” – Japanese slang, shortened from convenience store – filled with Sim Works, their outdoor brand, RAL, as well as Japanese snacks and trinkets. In the Cub House fashion, the team decided to make a big deal about it, throwing a group ride, and pinging Mick from 100 Tacos to cater the event.
If you’re in the Los Angeles area, be sure to swing through the Cub House to see the Sim Works Convenie Store!

Just about a year ago we brought over a French intern named Thibault to work with us here at Team Dream. Thibault (or Tebow as America now refers to him) had been working at Mavic during my first trip to the Tour de France and was sent out numerous times to pick us up in a van when the Peugeot 574 would break down. After some long hours stranded on the French roadside with Tebow, we became friends, and one night after a few glasses of rosé I offered him a job with us at Team Dream here in Los Angeles. To be honest I had no idea how crazy it is to obtain a work visa for a foreigner but after a lot of paperwork and a few site inspections at The Cub House we finally got Tebow to Los Angeles!
Santa Barbara’s most iconic climb gets some love during this year’s ATOC. It’s been a while since I’ve ridden that one!
Team Dream continues their coverage of this year’s Amgen Tour of California with pro team AG2R during stage three’s course out of Laguna.
Lookin for something to do tomorrow afternoon that goes to a good cause? The Cyclist’s Menu Ride Bikes Eat Food tour is stopping by the Cub House. For $25, you get a gourmet meal cooked for you, ready upon your return from a night ride. All proceeds go to Mount Wilson Bicycling Association. Sign up at the event’s Facebook page.
It’s really that easy to wheelie!
The Ritchey Logic is one of the cleanest-looking steel road framesets on the market, ATMO. With classic lines, and standard tubing profiles, it has all the looks of a vintage road bike with the performance of modern steel, all with a carbon fork. I’ve seen many fine examples of these affordable frames built up over the years, but David‘s is one of my favorites. Built with Ultegra and Ritchey Super Logic Zeta wheels, David’s kept it lightweight and nimble, perfect for the crushing road climbs this cycling sadist enjoys on the regular.
“The top is just around this bend…”
I’ve heard it many times. David’s enthusiasm for road exploration brought all of us on the Clouds to Cactus ride last year and at the recent Team Dream shoot in the Eastern Sierra, his love for stupid hard routes had him already pining for more exploration. Without a doubt, this bike will bring David places and most importantly, back home in one piece.
Team Dream’s new Spring collection is going live on their new website today at 12 PST. To coincided with this launch, I figured I’d share our photoshoot images here on the site!
Home to the Owens River, bounded by the Inyo Mountains on the east, the Coso Range on the southeast, Sierra Nevada on the west and Chalfant Valley on the north, Owens Valley is one of the most geologically diverse areas in California, in my opinion anyway. It’s a veritable playground for the outdoors with Mount Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48 States, attracting hikers from all over the world. If you’re not into climbing a 14,505′ mountain, the Owens river is great for fishing and there are numerous other activities found surrounding the towns of Lone Pine, Big Pine and Independence, California.
These jerseys Team Dream designed to commemorate Circles Japan’s 10th anniversary came out great! Getting your hands on one might be a bit of a challenge, but we can all dream, right?
