A few weeks ago Dylan, Cubby, Gabe and myself helped Eleven Inc move their website. Here is the finished piece!
We got together with our friends at San Marco to produce a couple of saddles our team loves. Working with Garrett Chow to finish these true-tested shapes, leading to a piece of art that is designed in Berkeley and hand-made in Italy.
We are taking pre-orders now for a March delivery. Stay tuned!
NEW KIT DAY!!! We are happy with this subdued version of our shop kit. We have all the pieces in stock now, but as always, they sell through in a few weeks. The next delivery will be before May. GET THEM HERE.
We have three new shirt designs as well. We brought back the shirts we made with Joe Staples, specific to the Giro and the Tour de France. Spoiler Alert Blocker! We also made a nice pocket t-shirt with a back print. They are available in store and on our site now.

Jeremy Dunn has a nice recap from this year’s Cyclocross Nationals in Boulder. CHECK IN! Garrett converted Walton’s Cinelli Zydeco into the California State flag to celebrate winning the 2014 CX State Championship in Bakersfield earlier last month.
Check in at THE ATHLETIC COMMUNITY for a current Q&A with Garrett Chow. Always great to hear perspective from artists and athletes.
Over the weekend I was laid up after hernia surgery. My friend Jon had given me a stack of Sporting Cyclist magazines to look over. This post is not intended to be a digital archive of the 1960′s cycling scene in Europe, but instead some details that I walked away with. These issues argue 1000 words are more valuable than a photograph. With many of the images only taking a quarter page, I got this feeling I grew up with: The Mystery of not being there. Social media has since crushed this era, but these magazines tell a different story. It begins with the waiting. Waiting and waiting for the next issue to be available, and if you were lucky, brought directly to your house. A magazine would be scrubbed and scrubbed, collecting every detail, and the viewer would build his or her own memory of the event. I enjoyed reading about 1963. Enclosed are a few trails for you to build some stoke of your own.
