MonDaze Dreamin’

This weekend was filled with exploration sessions (as you can see from this post and the two below). With weekends like these I always have a bike exploration session hangover come Monday, leaving me in a daze, daydreaming about hanging out in nature all day. Satisfied and craving more all at the same time.

Fun Fat Exploration

When you’re in the mood you’re in the mood. The East has been getting pounded with snow. Even all the way down to Alabama. I took full advantage utilizing our State Bicycle Co. Megalith not only to dig deep into the snow but go find some fun spots to soak it all in.

Fat Fun Snowflakes

Like peas and carrots.

Nothing goes more appropriately together like snow and a fat bike. And normally when this beautiful combo comes together in a geological location that doesn’t normally get snow; the town is yours to dominate as you see fit.

Here are few fun snaps from my trip to get “bread and milk” (disclaimer… I neither got bread nor milk but that’s what people say you need when it snows).

Chrome Industries // Warm Work Shirt Review

I’ve never been more pleased with a Chrome Industries wearable product like I am with their Warm Work Shirt. Perfect combo of a lot of things. High style mixed with high visibility (aka strategically placed super reflective accents) mixed with a very light weight but very warm mid / top layer piece of winter defeating apparel.

To be honest, it reminds me of the cold weather M65 Field Jacket Coat Liner I wore in the Air Force many moons ago, only way more stylish but equally as effective.

The Chrome Warm Work Shirt is now my go to for the rest of this cold season. Thanks for making great things Chrome.

Go to Chrome Industries and check out more detailed shots on the Warm Work Shirt.

NEW // Blackburn Outpost Frame Bags

imageDOPE!!!

Blackburn introduces the perfect bag for any week long adventure or all day leisure ride – the Outpost Frame Bag. Carefully considering the best features needed for each bag, Blackburn tailors every compartment and pocket to make sure there’s a perfect place for everything. Perfectly adaptable to this wet season, it is water resistant and includes adjustable mounting systems to allow fitment to all bikes thanks to Velcro straps that can be fastened to multiple lash points. The pack is worry free of having the foot rubbing while pedaling due to the small divider that sticks in place and holds the sides of the bag close together. In addition, an expandable bottom compartment accommodates more mission critical gear so you can focus on the important things. Form, utility and performance are what to expect from the Blackburn Outpost Frame Bag.

Available in two sizes – Medium ($60) and Large ($65).

Really love these. Perfect for this winter season to get out there with everything you need to keep you going. Cheers to that!

BROOKS CAMBIUM C13 SADDLE!!!

SEX. E!

“Brooks England announces the release of the latest addition to the expanding Cambium range. The Carbon “C13” aimed toward high end road bike users. Cambium saddles are made from a vulcanised natural rubber top that follows the movements of the rider for responsive control and all-day comfort. Suspended over a one-piece braided carbon frame, the C13 is light and strong for today’s performance cyclist.

The C13 utilities the same vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton top of the Cambium line, yet weighs 150g less than the popular C15 model.  This is accomplished through a continuous carbon rail that eliminates performance-resistant contact points and saves weight. The continuous rail is riveted to a Cambium top of vulcanized rubber and organic cotton for a monochromatic construction offering considerable strength and flexible performance characteristics. Finished with aluminium rivets in all black, tested by over 100 riders, including cycling icon David Millar who rode his C13 over the cobbles of Paris-Roubaix, undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges any racing saddle might face.”

More than amped on this beautiful saddle from Brooks England. Brooks has been around for many moons and has maintained a VERY classic look all around. The C13 is no exception. With its progressive design that brings in all levels of cyclist, Brooks has really nailed the C13 into the memory banks and pocket books of those in need of a sleek, light, highly stylish saddle.
