I love researching a good piece of kit, sites like Carryology and Every Day Carry have allowed utter indulgence in this. When it comes to cycling gear I’ve always started with Washing Machine Post, not only are these some of the most comprehensive and trustworthy reviews but they are also bound up in an interesting tale that always makes for good reading and provides me a ‘word of the day’. More recently I’ve added the discerning cyclist to this list of resources, with its beautiful layout and hand drawn accompanying pictures what’s not to like. Bookmark em now.
After months of tesing, we finally get to see the H&M x Brick Lane Bikes collection that will be launched on the 7th of March!
The jacket and the chinos looks pretty amazing and the prices are incredibly competitive, have a look at the full collection here and let us know what you think!
Apparently there will also be a competition to win one of the limited edition collaboration bikes available together with the collection, you can see it on their latest video here, racing green lo-pro with a front white tri-spoke!!
Ever wanted a windbreaker made exclusively from your race numbers? Well now ElevenGear have got you sorted. Personally mine will be staying on the shed wall though…
Ten Speed Hero is one of my go to blogs. Original content always communicated in their own unique style. when I enquired whether their socks were still available Luke shot back an email with their new 2013 design which hasn’t reached their webstore yet. These will be on my feet soon to show my allegiance it helps that they are the wooleator model from defeet for winter, while the white ones are the aireator. Shoot them a mail and get yours.
We’ve been grateful to be involved closely with both Vulpine and the Levi’s commuter range as they have emerged over the last year.
For me they fulfill different slots in the market. We love Levi’s price point and their adaptation of wardrobe classics to make them more bike friendly as well as their approach to the market from such a big company; yet on the other hand we love Vulpine’s ability to embed technical ability and features so stylishly and emphatically British we also love the personality and passion behind the brand. The guardian decided to debate these merits, check it out here.
I’ve been posting a fair bit about Deux North and the ‘Hunt’ project over the last few weeks. Mainly because this really is a project that strikes a cord with me, its about retrieving the purity of cycling that is all to easy lost when we get tied up in pursing race results, frustration at our own abilities or the lusting after the latest equipment. The essence enjoyment Deux North actively seeks can come from the surroundings the ride takes you, the feeling of accomplishment after a grueling climb, a moment of total camaraderie or meeting new people. #Hunt 1 shows all these facets and I can’t wait for the next installment. It was great to attend the preview last night and I bagged myself a set of socks, get yours here.
