If you’ve been following this blog for the past 6 years, you’ve seen me mention Razzle camouflage multiple times and if there is one cross team that could pull off a Razzle-inspired skinsuit during cross season, it’d have to be Geekhouse. Of course it takes an exceptional designer to pull it off, precedents and all. That’s why Marty enlisted Adria Klora to tackle the team kits this year, who also did the Golden Saddle Cyclery kits. ENDO‘s getting to produce some rad stuff this year!
All this Geekhouse razzle is coming to a race near you, just try to not stare directly into them or you’ll crash into a tree.
Garrett did a great job on the 2013 MASH kits. I doubt they’ll be in stock for long, so head over and swoop!

Not only are those my favorite Jawbones, but these kits aint bad either. It seems everything Mr. Ferencz touches is gold. This ‘cross season, FairEnds has teamed up with LA based Endo Customs to produce one kick-ass kit.
FairEnds celebrates Columbia’s national colors, and FairEnds partner Martin Carvajal’s native home with these lightweight kits that will look even better covered in mud and beer foam. Yeah, sweat too. Scoop a jersey up here and the bibs, here.
Because you should be spending your time riding and boozing this weekend, GSC have extended their kit pre-order until Monday. Get your riding in but save your pennies because this is the last pre-order ever on these rad kits.
The GSC shop kit has to be one of the most coveted kits in a long, long time. Even in Texas, I get people asking “how I scored one?!”. Look dummies, just order it! But act quick, because the final pre-order is ending August 31st!
Well, for the moment anyway. These things sell fast! Get on it.
If you missed out on the GSC kit before, now’s your chance to pre-order one. This is the last time these kits will be available, so act quick! Order with confidence, these are an Endo Customs release.
*edit, swoop a Ramblin Roll NOW while you still can! And other Tracko releases are back in stock.
Adam from Stanridge Speed just opened up shop over at his site. You can order everything from a complete bike, to stickers and even the new 2012 Fall kit. These came out great. Perfect for Fall / Winter. Head over and check it out.
Cadence has a new kit and they’re now available on their site. Head over to scoop the Jersey and Bibs. Who went to the opening party this weekend?
Over the past year, the LA-based cycling apparel designers and manufacturers, Endo Customs have gotten a lot of recognition. Personally, I first heard of them via the Golden Saddle Cyclery team. Kyle was adamant about using a local manufacturer to make their kits and they were a perfect match.
While I was in LA, I swung through their shop to check it out with Kelli, who is working on a women’s bib short. Being able to design and manufacture in house by-passes the annoying lead-times you get with overseas manufacturing. Their fabric is sourced from Italy and assembled in house, after graphics are heat-transfered on.
Endo has continued to reach out to the community, sponsoring races, teams and shops. With each new client, they gain more knowledge and through the process, they have established great PR&D relationships, which will lead to new products down the road. I was amazed at how much they packed into their 1,500′ square foot facilities… and yes, I have a kit coming down the pipeline, just in time for cross season.
