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!
See more at FBM.
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

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.
The Philly-based trail heads at Lone Wolf Cycling have a kit in their expanding line. Introducing the Tract jersey and bibs.
When you want to carry just a little more than your jersey pockets will allow and the idea of having a backpack on just isn’t cutting it, pack bags are great alternatives. With more and more companies breaking into the market, Blue Lug Japan is supporting their local manufacturers, Fairweather.
I have to admit, these are the nicest looking pack saddle bags I’ve seen so far. I really like the easy-to-access top velcro pocket. I know Marty at Geekhouse has been loving his for weekend trips. See more photos at the Blue Lug Flickr and pick one up at Blue Lug.
I know what you’re thinking: “this helmet is going to be $800.” Well, it’s not. To raise awareness of bicycle safety, artist Kaws teamed up with Bern, the New Museum and the Safe Streets Fund to design a run of 500 Watts Helmets. You can pre-order one now for $80, at the New Museum and expect it mid-June.
Did you get weird this weekend?
“There is nothing like a good vest for the Spring time. It’s in the 50s when you leave home and it can be 20 to 30 degrees warmer by the middle of the day. I’ve worn this vest over a lightweight jersey with arm-warmers when it’s 50 degrees and I’ve worn it unzipped and flapping in the wind when it’s 80 degrees. Vests are one of the most versatile pieces of outerwear you can own, on the bike or off. We chose camouflage because we wanted something that would disappear, allowing it to be worn with anything.”
I’ve ordered one already but if you haven’t, do so at Tracko. Ace did a great job once again!
