Archive Re-Up: Benedict’s (Ronnie Romance’s) Clockwork Dirt Droooop Tourer

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.

In Stock Now: The Radavist “Case Study” Bottles and Socks

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.

Case Study Sock Specs:

  • 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

Case Study Bottle Specs:

  • Purist 22oz bottle with MoFlo cap
  • 100% BPA free
  • Printed with non-toxic ink
  • Sold as a single bottle: 1 order = 1 bottle

Both are in stock and shipping today from The Radavist Webshop.

In Stock For Now: The Radavist Edition Ombraz Dolomite Sunnies

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.

Announcing the Arik Roper Capsule Collection for The Radavist

When it comes to creating fantasy landscapes for bands like Sleep, High On Fire, Earth, Windhand, and Weedeater, there’s none like Arik Roper. His iconic imagery has graced some of the finest metal LPs, from “Blessed Black Wings” to “The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull.”

We pinged Arik earlier this spring to design a graphic for us to incorporate onto some merch items and it’s finally available via our webshop. Let’s look at this extremely limited edition drop in detail below…

In Stock For Now: Radavist Feldspar Riding Jackets – Star Trails and Monsoon Camo

Like a repair kit, a packable, just-in-case layer is something we always throw on the bike before setting off, but like many things bike-related, we felt we needed to tweak the standard to achieve our ideal iteration. In collaboration with California-based cycling apparel manufacturer, Voler, our new Feldspar Ride Jacket ($119.99) hits the mark. This super breathable, minimal, USA-made layer packs up to burrito size and provides the sweet spot in protection for most three-season riding. After thorough testing and design back-and-forth with Voler, the unisex Feldspar jacket is finally on our digital shelves, ready to ship to you today IRL. Let’s take a long exposure look at them below…

In Stock For Now: Ocean & San x The Radavist Juniper Dapple Short and Long-Sleeve Jerseys

At The Radavist, we look to the natural world and our unique Rocky Mountain locale for inspiration. The riding around Santa Fe occupies a semi-arid steppe, and native shade trees are scarce in these foothills. As such, dense juniper forests are often the backdrop to our rides, and we’re grateful for the shade these hearty, low-lying trees cast to counter the sun’s high UV radiation in these parts (an unfortunate byproduct of life at 7000′).

It’s during the fading hours of the day that these groves become truly radiant as the dappled light of sunset filters through their scrubby branches, onto the trail, and ourselves. On a ride, last winter, our product designer Cari Carmen snapped a photo of this dappled light hitting my shirt and commented that it would make a cool pattern for a cycling jersey. And so began our journey on The Radavist Juniper Dapple Jerseys with Ocean & San, a Los Angeles-based cycling apparel company. A year in the making, these limited-release jerseys are now in stock at our webshop, but let’s look at them in detail below.

Bike Touring the Rainbow Rim Trail on The Radavist x Mosaic GT-2X Bikes

Bike Touring the Rainbow Rim Trail on The Radavist x Mosaic GT-2X Bikes

Arizona is one of the most remarkable states in the lower 48. From saguaro-covered mountains to forests of ponderosa pine, the ecotonal shift across the state’s expansive footprint is only bested by the geologically awesome Grand Canyon. That’s part of the appeal of the mighty Arizona Trail, right? To see the state in its entirety from top to bottom. While the AZT might not be for everyone, there’s another trail system on the rim of the Grand Canyon that is perfect for those looking for a truly unique and characteristically Arizona experience via a quick overnighter or even a day ride.

Once we had samples of our Radavist Edition Mosaic GT-2X bikes, I wanted to put them to the test and do a proper shake-down overnighter somewhere memorable and beautiful. Pulling together this project was quite the undertaking with supply chain issues still running rampant. Our trip kept getting pushed back into the summer months. It was edging on being too hot to tour our original route, so we looked to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and found a true gem of a ride, perfect for a weekend of sleeping out under the monsoon skies…

“Monsoon” is the seventh layout of the Radavist 2022 Calendar. It was shot with a Sony A9 and the Sony 70-200 lens on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona.

“Spend enough time in the Southwest and scenes like this will be commonplace. Spend a weekend on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and be prepared to have your mind melted at the spectacle.”
