I’ve said numerous times in the past that I’m really stoked on Team Dream Bicycling Team. So stoked that I worked with Sean on an extensive PiNP collaboration kit, beginning with these Pream Team Viking Socks! Made by DeFeet in North Carolina, these socks are $15 a pair and in stock now at Team Dream Bicycling Team!
Also be sure to check out the other sock and cap offerings from TDBT!
At this point, it should be Molteni Mondays, right? Artist Richard Pool just came out with these “The Cannibal” t-shirts, celebrating everyone’s favorite (right?) racer in orange. See more at Richard Pool’s site!
I love Tune‘s products. I use their skewers on my bikes, would kill for a set of their cranks and I’m stoked that they manufacture everything in the Black Forest, Germany. For their new catalog, the component manufacturers got a little creative. Check out the full catalog here!
The Cinelli Mash Histogram has been immensely popular over the years but it wasn’t until this year’s model that I’ve personally been stoked on it. Polished aluminum with a graphic overlay always looks amazing. These framesets are now in stock at MASH, so if you’re in need of a new track frame, go check them out!
The guys at Geekhouse have some brand new bottles and caps in stock, so head over to their store and check them out!
LEH SEATS recently relocated to Austin, Texas where the normal catalog has been extended from custom saddles and BMX seats to braided bar wrap. It looks damn nice and for a handmade leather product, it won’t break the bank!
Check out more details here.
So. Right about now, you have to ask yourself: how strong is your camo game? Sidi Dominators now come in woodland camo, available now, in limited numbers at your local Sidi dealer!
I’m of the belief that the Klickfix system is one of the easiest, most practical methods for attaching a handlebar bag. Screw a decaleur, this is a quick-release that does everything and I’m stoked to see Swift Industries design a new bag to work with the system. Introducing the Paloma Handlebar Bag:
“The Swift Industries Paloma Handlebar Bag is designed for the Klickfix Handlebar Adapter™, combining the function of a randonneur bag with the ease of a quick-release mounting system and the signature aesthetic Swift Industries fans have come to recognize and love.
Weighing in at 1 pound, Swift Industries offers cyclists a light front bag in customized colors. The 6 liter capacity bag is lined with rip-stop X-Pac™ fabric, making it the perfect fit for bicycle tourists and everyday cyclists alike. “We see the Klickfix Handlebar Adapter as a simple and clever alternative to the racks and decaleur measurements our Ozette Randonneur Bag requires. In two fluid steps the quick-release system works its magic and you’ve got your maps, windbreaker, and camera with you wherever you go,” explains company co-owner and designer, Jason Goodman.”

I know it’s hard to look at photos of a product online and determine its craft, or quality and thus, its worth or value. Especially with everyone and their mum doing outerwear these days. I’ve heard a lot about this brand, Café du Cycliste, but like you, I’d never seen it in person.
During my last trip to Melbourne, Malachi from Northside Wheelers had some pieces from the line in stock and it looked great. So here I am, saying that yes, indeed I believe the merino line is indeed worth the asking price.

“IT IS FORBIDDEN TO FORBID!”
It’s hard to believe that this is the typical Austin “fall riding” wear. Short sleeve jersey and bibs. Maybe arm warmers. Out of all my road-cycling kits, for some reason I keep coming back to this combo: the Tenspeed Hero Stealth Club Jersey and the Team Dream ENDO Compression bibs.
Both fit exceptionally well and are classic additions to anyone’s collection. In fact, I’m a huge fan of everything Tenspeed Hero is doing but I had never owned one of their jerseys before. They’re made in Italy, from tech fabrics and the fit is pretty spot on. I haven’t owned a club-fit jersey (size large) in over a year, so I was surprised at how the chest in particular felt a little more roomy than my tradition size large race fit kits.
What can I say? I don’t have to do posts like this but I’ve been really digging this jersey!
