Recently we’ve been riding the AARN Chain rings. Between us we displaced our Campag Record, Zen and Sugino 75 rings to install the 144#N ring. I don’t think one of us would dare say we feel greater connectivity or sense the pure roundness from these changes… but what we are stoked on is that we’re running the most beautiful US made, carefully constructed chain rings we’ve ever seen and for that we give thanks. Check out the aamerican edition here.
Amongst our supporters this year is Brooklyn local ICNY. Mike produces some incredible garments and manages the impossible of balancing out desirability, looks and safety through his implementation of reflective graphics.
Chief amongst these are his sock line, these things aren’t all glitz and no go though, check out what makes the socks we’ve been racing and riding in this season.
Don’t miss out on Ragpicker’s new additions. All UK orders this week are guaranteed before Christmas. Their merino products are really good, my two favourite being the base-layer and scarf. But check out the whole collection here.
One of the draw backs of cross racing is that it requires a vehicle to get you there. This can prove prohibitive and selective in who actually makes it to races. The NYC community tends to rally round and lifts and car pooling is pretty effective.
Thule have been in awesome in outfitting 5th NYC with their rack systems ensuring we can get the full team with 5 bikes to the races. The rack system is super secure during transit and when were in parc ferme with its locking system. We’re using the 526 circuit model, specs here.
Thanks to Angelo for the photos and Chris for ferrying us around the east coast this season.
