I first me Chris aka North Trooper at last year’s Interbike and since then it seems he’s been quite the busy dude. While piling on work as a photographer he connected with the fine people at Mission Workshop for a little lookbook outing. Some pretty stellar shots of the gear out getting some nature. Peep more here!
Mission workshop will be blowing out some seconds, samples and older goods with the style Taylor Stitch on backup. If you’re in the bay area this Saturday don’t miss a chance to score some quality bags and clothing to match! More info on the Mission Facebook page…
Mission Workshop just upped some awesome two strap cargos to their store. Dialed as usual all the way down to the heavy duty AustriAlpin Cobra buckles. Peep and swoop right here before they’re gone!
The newest incarnation of Mission Workshop’s Orion is lighter than ever and just as waterproof. Taped seems and pockets galore mean you and all your goods are going to stay as dry as can be. A bit high on the price but you get what you pay for and this thing will definitely fight off the wet weather in any condition. Plus it looks rad. Preorder here!
Some new new from Mission Workshop with these AP Series Sanction bags. Waxed canvas, rip stop interior and Arkiv buckles mean these are probably bomb proof. Looks dope too. Grab on here.
If you’ve been living under a rock you might have missed that Prolly undertook an awesome journey not too long ago with the Mission Workshop crew. The trailer for the video series documenting his awesome trip to China dropped today. Stellar work and something I’ll be looking to watch for sure. Stay up on the tour here. John you are such a pro!
John is pretty much THE man when it comes to the bike blogs. That’s why he gets to go do cool shit like this with the dude’s from Mission Workshop. So rad to be able to cruise around the Yangtze region I’m sure. Looks like an experience of a lifetime dude…soak it up!
So I spent last weekend in SF for Red Bull Ride and Style as some of you know. This was hands down one of the best weekends Ive had in years. I was having way too much fun doing what i was do to take my phone out and really needed to time to just space and enjoy life…so there are little to no photos here but man was it a good weekend.
A couple friends and I packed up and rolled out only to stop in Dixon for a little riding and waiting for others to meet up. We actually filmed a few clips of some fun business that may pop up. For some reason we were intrigued by this farm and went exploring for a bit…
After getting to the city and meeting up with our sacto homie Greg we went out to get some food, brew and drop some hills. He’d never ridden in the city before so he was loving it. Rad and I were on our trick bikes and I ended up skidding straight through my tire on our way to Haight. After some brews in GG park and chasing a racoon with a bottle we rolled to Benders where there were a bunch of heads from in for for the event. No flicks of this but we stayed out till the wee hours before calling it catch some sleep for the next day. Hotel roof tops and sketchy liquor stores made the night that much better. In fact i didnt really take too many pictures this weekend at all…i was sort of on vacation.
The event was killer. One of the best yet thats for sure. I showed up to the comp not really wanting to ride…not really into competitions…but actually ended up having a blast. Got to see a bunch of people I haven’t seen in months, met some new people and connected with people from the internetz. Somehow I actually landed some tricks too…even after 7 red bulls and about a pack of cigarettes. The live music, the commentating, the crowd and most of all the venue were amazing. Never thought I’d see something of this scale go down in fixed gear. Not yet anyhow. So sick. I didn’t get much of the actual event but these two.
After the event a ton of people rolled to the new Benny Gold shop to check it out and meet up before hitting up some bars to unwind. Shot some pool with the boys and ran into some friends from Sac who were out and about. Ended up stranding myself in the city the next day…on purpose haha. Wanted to sit in Delores Park for most of the day and enjoy good company. Managed to swing by Mission Workshop before catching a last minute and pretty spontaneous train home. The shop is real purdy like and tucked nicely into the Mission.
Yes…they’re that convenient. I dont have any SPD setups but if i get something fast together you can probably bet that ill be rocking the Rondels from Mission Workshop or some other DZR shoe. This video pretty much hits it with why you would want to rock these…
These are the last of the videos…for a couple hours anyway haha. Some new cuts from Mission Workshop with the Monty, the Tokyo launch party and their London shop setup. The amount of growth Mission has seen this year is awesome…really making moves with some solid products.
