Chris King’s in-house wheelsets have begun rolling out the doors of their Portland facilities just in time for the holidays. This year, if you buy a cyclist anything, buy them some King! Check out the full offerings at Chris King. I have the R45 / Hed Belgium wheels on two of my bikes and I swear by them!
The guys at Factory 5 in Shanghai just launched their newest product, the Lattice chainring:
“The Lattice Chainring is one of our proudest moments in F5 history. We went back to the drawing board with this one and came up with something technically innovative and intrinsically beautiful. In other words, it’s freaking light and euphemistically gorgeous.
Precision CNC milled from a single piece of 7075 aluminum, the dual-plane cutouts maintain strength whilst reducing the chainring’s weight to a mere 78g. We’ve radially brushed the ring and had them deep anodized to give the industrial feel we strive for at F5… and the result is something we’re chuffed to say is made in China.
It comes in 144BCD, Black, Slate and Silver, 47, 48 and 49T.”‘
I’m stoked on these! Pick one up here!
Before I begin this whole review, let me just say that this bike has been an absolute blast. If you have no interest in riding a fatbike, you should really try one out, they’re a lot of fun. In fact, it’s hard to convince me to ride my other bikes. No lie…
Ever since riding the Krampus back in Minneapolis, I wanted to get my hands on a full fat. Then, when Surly announced that sick limited edition Pugsley, I pulled a few fingers (backwards), sold my soul and got on the list for one.
So how’s it ride? Is it heavy? What are my thoughts? Surely, I have some critiques. Check out more below!
I really, really love this print from 100 Copies and the fact that it’s a tribute to the people of Tacloban makes it even better:
“The devastation of Typhoon Haiyan has seen homes and lives destroyed by flood waters.
If each of us do our bit to contribute, we can help the people of Tacloban rise above this disaster and rebuild their lives.
All proceeds for this print will go to the Red Cross Haiyan Relief humanitarian efforts in the Philippines.

The guys at Pentabike are back at it and I’m stoked. One of my all-time favorite accessories is back in stock, the Black N Brass Muststach “bar end one-hitter”. I shouldn’t have to explain what makes this bar end so special, but if you need a history lesson, check the archives.

For whatever the reason, this saddle has generated more hype than any I can recall. Perhaps it’s because Brooks isn’t exactly associated typically with vegan saddles? Or maybe it’s the unique nature of the material application? Rubber, really?! I’ve heard a lot of positive and negative feedback but that didn’t stop me from picking up a Cambium C17 from my local shop to try out (I still hadn’t received mine from Brooks to review, so I figured what the hell)…

To make everyone happy, I’m doing a pre-order. It will stay open until Saturday morning and I’ll be placing the order the following Monday. Shirts will take a week to print, so expect them to ship out December 2nd!
There is nowhere more serene than nature but don’t lower your guard, because as enchanting as it may be, the ‘wood will swallow you whole. Nature is metal and is best enjoyed by bike. Sometimes the best thing for one’s mind is to be alone with their bike, and a fire, or simply put: atavism.
Designed by myself and penned by Kyler Martz, these American Apparel pocket tees were printed up here in Austin by the super metal folks at Industry Printshop.
Scoop up one right now for $25 plus shipping in the PiNP Web Shop!
***THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. If you ordered your shirt on Tuesday, November 19th, it will ship this Monday!***
I got to meet this lovely couple when I was in Melbourne and they’re both the perfect models for FYXO’s new Squadra Corsa jerseys. My favorite of the bunch being the Maglia Rosa!
… Just so happens to be the simplest one and this time, it comes in an array of colors. Ultrafine merino wool, sewed in NYC and designed by Outlier.
