Since Kyle‘s on vacation, I told him I’d post about his new winter combo kit today.
Right now, the Splinter Camo Short Sleeve Jersey, the Splinter Camo Long Sleeve Winter Jersey, the Splinter Camo Cycling Vest and the Unisex Dickies Brown Bibs are up for pre-order. I have to say, this is the best Tracko kit yet!
Check out more photos we shot on my local trails below!
Kjeld is one of my friends in Los Angeles and as a native of the UK, he grew up listening to the Clash. Now he’s living in LA, way into bikes, is fast, fit and stoked on the community there. He just got some rad kits made by Endo under his label, Superdomestik, as an homage to “Guns of Brixton”.
In case you grew up under a rock and never heard of the Clash, this song had heavy reggae overtones, hence this kit. Scoop one up at Superdomestik!
You know what? I like stripes. A lot. I didn’t at first but then I wore one of these kits and I realized that they look damn nice. It doesn’t hurt that Sean’s also a rad dude. He’s worked with Endo customs on a set of compression bibs. They’re tight, won’t lose form, won’t fade and come in all black, including the logos. I have a pair and they rule.
TDBT has home jerseys, away jerseys and a wind vest up for pre-sale. See the full offering here. But hurry, the pre-order ends October 6th!
This last trip to LA, I got to hang out with Sean from Team Dream Bicycle Team extensively. On one of the last days, he handed me one of the new TDBT caps (I’m lying, I convinced him to let me take one for photo purposes). Aside from the red, white and blue being patriotic, I love the design of these caps. Or, if you fancy green more, they’ve got you covered.
Swoop one up at Team Dream Bicycle Team today! $20, made in the USA and worth every penny. Pace caps are the best and the four panel design fits so well.
Also, if you’re into the kit, Sean is running an extension on 2014 jersey the pre-order. The new ENDO compression bibs RULE!
My friends at Kinfolk Studios in Brooklyn have just launched a pre-order of their new Endo Customs cycling kit. We all know that Endo’s kits are the best in the US, so there’s no debate over the quality. Put in your pre-order at Kinfolk!
Also, check out a short video the guys made below.
Tennyson and 43rd are the cross streets at which you can find Pearl Velo, Berkeley Supply and Avery County Cycles, some of my favorite shops in the USA. They believe in riding, racing and having fun! After last year’s SSCX team kits, a lot of locals asked about ordering one.
The Tennyson Collective doesn’t necessarily embody the three shops, as much as it embraces the community and its vernacular. The trolley was designed by their friend Josh Shively after the original trolley that ran in the shop’s area until 1950.
Pick up the new Endo Customs made Tennyson Collective kit or a t-shirt here!
The gals and guys at Golden Saddle Cyclery are keeping the pre-order for their kits open until September 4th, so get on it!

Leader has a new carbon fiber track frameset coming out, dubbed the EQNX and a new cycling kit, designed by Dustin Klein and made by ENDO dropping around the same time. Be on the look out for both this fall and check out the lookbook here.
It’s been in the 50′s every morning up in the mountains of Vermont where I’m staying even though last week it was in the upper 90′s. As I was packing for this trip, at the last minute, I grabbed my Endo Customs wind vest and tossed it into my duffle. This one in particular is the Tracko splinter camo design, which came out ridiculously rad.
The thing about vests is they keep your core warm, without overheating you like a jacket and they’ll pack away into a jersey pocket with ease. The Endo vests have three pockets, vented sides and a large zipper pull that’s easily found through full finger gloves. I’ve only used it a few times and I’ve got no complaints. It fits better than other gilets or vests I’ve used, especially when coupled with Endo kits.
Really, the only bummer is, you can’t buy it direct from Endo, you have to wait until someone sells a design as part of a kit. Winter is coming and I think I’ve got a pretty rad idea for my next kit run, so stay tuned!
Kits, kits and more kits. The GSC kit redux is now available for pre-order. Check out more information at Tracko and pre-order yours here.
