For spring this year, Tokyo Fixed has rolled out a few new looks for their team jerseys. These are slim cut in a classic 4-side design, with a carbon weave side panels. See more shots here and pick one up in red or red / blue.
There has been a huge push in American-manufactured cycling wear over the past few months and I’m very excited to see Search & State leading the charge. I wear the shit out of the Riding Jacket, especially while traveling and now they’ve just added Riding Shorts to their line. Also, don’t miss the new OD green jersey!
It’s going to be a green spring this year…
“Following up on the 5 Decades T-Shirt collection from last year…
1962 was the year that marked the return of trade teams to the Tour de France, to replace the previous national line ups. This trio of special edition Rapha jerseys celebrate the three teams and riders who topped the podium that year. The 49th edition of the Tour saw newcomer Raymond Poulidor of Mercier take the third step whilst Belgian Jozef Planckaert of Flandria narrowly lost out to Jacques Anquetil of the iconic St. Raphaël team.”
Looking great. Also, hey Ben!
It’s Merckx Mondays (in the Northern Hemisphere anyway) and I’m back in the land of Eddy Merckx. Not Belgium, Melbourne. As far as I’m concerned, classic Eddy Merckx bicycles in Australia is pronounced “F Y X O”. Andy’s supplied the world with great photos of classic steel bicycles over the years and his new 7-FYXO kits are looking great. Pick up the 7-FYXO Jersey here and the FYXO classic bibs here.
Don’t miss the full FYXO photoset here.
“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.”

Pre-Order runs through April 30th, 2013. Production lead time is 6 weeks.
After months upon months of design, development and prototyping, the Giro New Road line is now available at select shops. I’ve had hands on experience with many of these pieces and I’m very impressed with the concept and construction. While they look like casual silhouettes, these jerseys are part of an innovative design that allows you to access pockets on the bib “briefs”. Some of these products are meant to work as a kit and others are to be treated as a normal jersey. It’s hard to describe but the product photos below explain better than I can.
The technical, merino blends fit great and have clean, modern lines but most importantly for me, the New Road line is made in the USA and is still affordable. I have and will commend Giro for developing, designing and manufacturing this product line in the state of California.
There’s more to come but for now, you can see the product shots below.
