When we lost our 2014-2015 image bucket back in 2018, it was a huge bummer, but over the past few months, I’ve been digging out hard drives and re-editing some photos, in the hopes of filling in the bigger holes.
2014. What a wild time. I was living in Austin, TX and connecting with individuals who would become some of my best friends. From Matt and his prototype Crust Bikes Evasion to Benedict, aka Ronnie Romance, and his Clockwork Dirt Drop Tourer, some of my favorite bike and personality moments came from that era. Today, in conjunction with Bené’s Blue Lug post, I wanted to re-up this classic photoset, so enjoy!
I should also note that my intent here is only to upload lost photos, keeping the text and formatting intact.
If you’ve been a fan of The Radavist for long enough, you might remember when John was a full-time architect at the beginning of the website’s early days. Years later, that architecture bug has still got him, particularly in mid-century design. That’s where the inspiration for our Case Study bottles and socks came from. We converted a hand-drawn text treatment of “Radavist” into a parti pattern that wraps around these Case Study Socks and Water Bottles with an abstract, geometric flow.
- Sockguy Turbo Wool, which is thick, soft, and very comfy
- Unisex fit: S/M fits W6-10 and M5-9; L/XL fits W10-14 and M10-13.
- Designed by Cari Carmean
- Made in the USA
Today we’re elated to present our Radavist Edition Sklar Super Something bikes. We worked with Adam Sklar from Sklar Bikes to create two unique and exclusive paint finishes, which we’ve dubbed “Burgundy Something” and “Super Splatter,” and have five build kits ranging from a coaster cruiser to an ENVE-clad race machine.

In the coming year, we’ll be rolling out quite a few product collaborations we’re proud of, with the first being this Radavist edition Ombraz Dolomite sunnies. For those unfamiliar, Ombraz designs armless sunglasses that are virtually indestructible. Or, perhaps I should say, more robust than standard sunnies. Without arms, these glasses pack down flat, making them easy to store in a pocket, and since they rely on a cord to tighten, can be hung around your neck when not in use with ease. I’ve been wearing Ombraz since the brand’s inception and have been hooked, prompting this collaboration. Let’s check it out below.
