The highly sought-after GSC caps are back in stock. I can’t think of a more iconic cap from the past few years, so pick one up now! Seriously, I see these everywhere I travel. From Indonesia to Australia…
If you’re in LA next Wednesday, you should try to make it out to the Golden Saddle Grand Prix.
Death Spray Custom is no stranger to camouflage. Not in the least. His latest camo-creation is this ENVE cross fork for Kyle at GSC. It came out amazing. See more at the DSC Blog.
I’m one lucky guy. Since Tracko has “sworn off” posting anything but track bikes, I get all the radness that rolls through the doors at Golden Saddle Cyclery. The first of which, being the crème de la crème of the Fat Chance MTB line, the 10 year anniversary Fat.
This is no ordinary Fat Chance. The 10th anniversary frames came with a titanium, etched plate (this one’s 113 out of 200), a BOI Yo Eddy Fork and complete True Temper OX tubing. Most of which came outfitted with a full Campagnolo Record OR gruppo and were highly sought after at the $1450 MSRP (frameset). The weight? Around 23 pounds. Not too shabby and that paint job…
Those who want to read up more on the 10th Anniversary frame can check out this article from the MTB forums.
Kyle did this one justice with tons of detailed photos and he even tracked down some Campagnolo OR brake levers to replace the Avid models currently on the bike. See for yourself in the Gallery!
One of my good friends and someone that’s come to represent fun times, Ty from Golden Saddle Cyclery, is getting ready to embark on the Tour Divide. For those who aren’t aware, the Tour Divide is a solo bike race from Canada to Mexico along the great dividing range. The word “adventure” gets thrown around a lot these days, but I can assure you, this is a fucking adventure. If you haven’t watched the documentary, Ride the Divide, I suggest you do so!
This is a life-changing ride, something that Ty has been preparing to undertake for over a year and I am stoked for him! Follow him on Instagram, wish him luck and be sure to ask him lots of questions. He loves questions.
Well, not that kinda jamming.
I’ve been very fortunate every time I’ve been to LA, only because I have the best friends there. Friends who are the best ride guides and of course, own the best bike shop in LA (I mean the best bar in Silverlake). Tracko took me on one of the best cross rides I’ve been on in Los Angeles the last time I was in town. Parts of it were very LA, while other sections felt like Austin and some even reminded me (mostly smelled like) Australia. We got to fuck around a bit on tech sections, avoid dog walkers, took a few spills and hammered it home just in time for lunch. Los Angeles really does have some of the best bike riding in the country…
We totalled 48 miles and around 3,600′ of elevation but who gives a shit about the numbers with trails like this. See for yourself below!
Tools of the trade:

I know I already posted about Woody’s Team Dream Team shirts last Friday but this weekend, Jesse Carmody got creative with the TDT water bottle photo shoot and I had to share these photos!
“The red, white and blue bobcat t-shirt & purist bottle are here to commemorate Woody’s National Masters Championship, his commitment to the US Olympic Cycling program, and to support him for being an all around good guy.
100% of the proceeds from both the red, white & blue bottle and t-shirt will go to assisting him with his medical bills. Look cool and be rad at the same time!”
