Miami based Stray Rats are back at it for the spring/summer 2014 season with this small but on point lookbook. Not straying to far from their roots the brand is still on that graphic game hard with Champion basics serving as the canvas.
With the Queen of the Classics now behind us, for many the best parts of the road racing season are over – although if this was a preview of the talent pool in 2014, the Grand Tours should be quite entertaining this year as well.
Paris-Roubaix 2014 was one of the best single day races in recent memory, with numerous breaks and an insanely fast average speed (+45 kmph!) – in the final 10 km the lead group included the likes of Cancellara, Sagan, Boonen, Hushovd, and Wiggins, so you know the win was hard fought. Enjoy the always-infomative coverage of Cosmo Catalano, and next up, Amstel and Liège–Bastogne–Liège
Not really a State Bicycle supporter but we always mess w/ Macaframa, and damn can Jason Clary ride a bike! SF hammering, serious business.
Do you even blauge, bro? A question we’ve been asking ourselves. And yes, we still do – we’ve just been busy with a couple other things… to be revealed soon enough. In the interim, here’s Finisterre‘s spring 2014 men’s lookbook, @coldwatersurf basics for the warmer swell search – still the best brand I don’t own a piece from, need to rectify that asap.
Road trip at the end of May to Washington State! Two of our favourites in Sideburn Mag and See See are bringing the Dirt Quake event to America from the UK – flat track racing for all kinds of bikes that wouldn’t normally be sanctioned to shred the dirt (and for real pro flat tracking as well). Heck this video even has a Canadian connection soundtracked by The Vicious Cycles (the best). See yall in Castle Rock.
Bounty Hunter on the wildstyles for spring 2014, another set of bangers from the Japanese streetwear gawds. The line never does wrong, peep the archives.
Ten Speed Hero is one of the best cycling brands to emerge from the new road culture, spurned in the mainstream by Rapha, but more in the fringes by lines like MASH, Cedar and TSH. There’s a real art-academia influence to TSH designs and presentation, a cerebral approach to the simplest of pleasures (simple, but on a fresh carbon whip with Campy nawmean). Lots of great stuff in this release, cop now before your favs are gone.
