Chrome Spring Riding Kit.

Posted by: kris

Chrome has taken some of their best products in their current line and bundled them into the perfect spring riding package. From the Merino Mason jersey to the Cardiel ORP you’ll be feeling light and breezy as you head out to cruise the town. Click through for more deets and photos then hit the links to grab each piece.

 

Our v-neck Mason riding jersey is made with 90% Merino wool and 10% nylon to give the heat managing, odor resistant properties of Merino wool and durability of Nylon. Designed with a longer hem length for riding comfort and a double-layered shoulder seam for increased durability

 

The Operation Readiness Pack (ORP) is a lightweight, water-resistant rolltop daypack. We made it with fully-taped, rip-stop nylon to create the right balance of lightness and durability. The ORP works as a daypack and can fit a 13″ laptop in the internal back pocket. When traveling, it can be rolled up and stowed in the Cardiel Fortnight. The ORP is part of the Cardiel Travel Series, a three-bag travel system designed in collaboration with skateboard legend and track bike savant, John Cardiel. Made for John’s simple, resourceful, creative, and self-sufficient travel style, the three-bag system can be used in tandem or on its own — answering to every need from a two-hour ride to a two-week trip.

FWDSET: App and New Kits.

Posted by: kris

After making the move from Florida to LA last year Kirk and The FWDSET are looking ready to make moves this year. They recently made available their app (iPhone & Google) that allows navigation of all the same spots from their site in a stand alone application. That means after the kit pre-orders open up you can swoop one real easy. Rad to see this project coming along proper.

On Location: Sea Otter Classic.

Posted by: kris

Was down in Monterey over the weekend for the Sea Otter Classic. Doesn’t get much better than bikes and camping so it was for sure a good time hanging with the Destroy dudes. Despite the MTB focus of the event there were some fixed/urban cycling vendors with some cool stuff on display. Spotted Plant X who had some newer carbon track setups, Phil Wood with the usual mix of hubs/cogs and the god dudes of Fyxation. A few photos from the weekend after the click…

Tested: State Bicycle Co. Black Label.

Posted by: kris

It’s been a few solid weeks riding around on the State Bicycle Co. Black Label that’s now become a sweet basket bike. After getting this thing built up I put it through the ringer with a solid couple of weeks at work (LOTS of rain), some long days on the trail and running errands around town. Overall I dig the bike and though it wont be my daily rider I’m sure it’ll be one of the regulars. Here’s a little breakdown of why…
