Cinelli has teamed up with Fifo Cycle in Red Hook, Brooklyn to make a limited edition bespoke cycling cap for Spring/Summer 2013. Made from linen and cotton and screen printed and sewn by hand, this fully reversible hat takes it’s inspiration from 1960′s pop art.
“We wanted to stay true to the impact the Cinelli branding has had on cycling graphics and to harken back to their vintage design legacy. It has been an extremely exciting project for Fifo Cycle…just the kind of design challenge that gets us spinning in the studio! We used transparent water based inks on natural fabrics to give the hat a vintage feel and an Oxford stripe on the reverse side to keep it dapper and fresh!”
Lead Designer at Fifo Cycle
Product Details: A fully reversible lightweight cycling hat from Fifo Cycle. Handmade in New York with cotton and linen, and screen printed with water based ink.
One size fits most: 21″-24″
This is a very limited run (150 hats made in total) and each hat is numbered.

I am so, so pumped on this jacket that Rapha has been working on with Raeburn. It’s made in England from old parachute canopies and sporting a bright orange and OD green colorway. I’m sold! Check out more at Rapha.
Also, check out an interview with Christopher Raeburn and shots of the jacket at Selectism!
I’ve missed posting about the past few Giro First Friday products but these Pink Aeon Leader Helmets look great:
“The ultimate cycling helmet combines a lightweight feel with a skull-hugging fit and robust protective capability. It puts the wind to work for you, keeping you cool and comfortable no matter how far or fast you ride. And it practically disappears when you put it on. That helmet is the Aeon. Our premium performance helmet designed to meet the demands of the world’s most iconic roads and best riders.
A version of this stunning pink and rhodamine colorway was first seen last year at the Giro d’Italia, on the heads of race leaders including overall winner Ryder Hesjedal of Team Garmin-Sharp. It is now available to you, our fans, in a limited quantity on Facebook.
We produced 50 of these worldwide, and when they’re gone they’re gone for good. Unless you’ve got what it takes to earn one on the road… ”
Pick one up at the Giro Facebook Store here, and for Mobile check-out go here.
I don’t have a kid but part of me wants to buy this frame anyway, just so when I do have a kid, they’ll have a piece of American steel to ride around on. If you have a son or a daughter that could fit on this 12″ BMX from FBM, I suggest you pick it up!

Look, I know this is a very metal kit and some of you aren’t into metal. TOO BAD. Even Tracko wears this kit and he’s as hippy as they come. Since the last run of the Endo Customs-made Necronomicog kits, I’ve received a ton of emails asking to do another run. Well, you’ve got a month to pre-order this time and I even listed it close to payday.
You have until June 1st to place your order. Expect shipments mid-July (maybe sooner).

Click here for the bibs – $135
Click here for one pair of arm and one pair of knee warmers – $75
These kits are made in Los Angeles from only the best quality materials. Almost every kit I wear is made by Endo and I wouldn’t use anyone else!
Vintage aesthetics at an affordable rate? Unheard of these days. Or if you can find it, it’s usually shit. Gantoli Cycling Gloves harken back to the era where all pros needed were friction downtube shifting, a cigarette and a bottle of wine. Ok, and a lot of drugs.

This is the fifth layout of the 2013 PiNP Calendar, entitled “The Middle of Nowhere”. The camera, lens used and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
There were many moments during my recent ride in Australia where I came to a skidding stop, hand already in my backpack, pulling out my camera but this is by far one of the my favorites. If you’ve ever wanted to go somewhere that looks like nowhere else, this is it. You know, just doing my share for Tourism Victoria…

Dark Side of the Moon… unit!
I love the PAUL Components Touring Cantis. I’ve had them on my touring bike, my cross bike and just about everyone I know has them on at least one of their bikes. They’re a classic, no-nonsense cantilever brake. Unlike many cantilevers, these arms are angled upwards. This gives the brake a much narrower profile without significantly reducing stopping power.
As a throwback to the 80′s MTB era of bright anodizing, I teamed up with PAUL to produce yet another run of purple Touring Cantis and matching Moon Units.
$240 Shipped in the USA, $250 shipped internationally. That gets you a pair of Touring Cantis (front and rear) and a pair of Moon Units. In stock now at the PiNP Web Shop.
