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.
My first-gen shop kit from MASH is probably my fav in the closet, mellow grey/black combo with the sponsor logos and that amazing Capo race cut. This new release black on black 2014 shop kit is all killer, an updated murdered-out version of the OG, perfect for the forthcoming road race season (if you roll lone wolf like that), or just keeping it real on group rides and solo centuries. Hit the shop to cop , you know it’ll sell through fast.
Pretty in to trackbikes with risers/flat bars right now, also pretty down with Batillus, and always in to suffering on the bike – Rainier brings the pistons out on this Fillmore climb, another entry in MASH’s rider short clips series (all of which have been awesome).
Legit cross training via the MASH team.
84/85 favourites Iron & Resin present their spring 2014 collection via a moto/surf/skate/camp/goodtimes roll through the Baja, jealousy inducing stuff from the SoCal label on a grey fall morning. If you don’t already know what the line is about get to know, it’s the kind of story and ethos we can get all the way behind, especially when it results in smashing desert roads and pool sessions with the homies (in some good looking kit to boot). Make sure to click though as we’ve got the full spring ’14 catalog, a lot of great imagery coming from a top brand.
Japanese label Balabushka Remnants is back with this look at their autumn/winter 2013-2014 collection. Coming off their last collection for the ss ’13 season, which had a baseball theme for the shoot. This time around the lookbook is shot in studio, with less of an overall vibe and more of a mash up of styles; ranging from dapper professor to sporty/outdoors to some more comfy boyz styles.
Purple Label smashing the lookbook game yet again with this fall/winter 2013 collection… and yes, the line is Japan-only, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use this as your f/w style inspiration going forward. I would holler at everything in the collection, and the girl’s looks are wild as well… not much to say here, click through and let the lookbook do the talking.
Beauty new track offering for 2014 from MASH x Cinelli, premiered at the Red Hook Crit Barcelona taking place this week. From the official MASH release,
‘We are happy to introduce our 2014 offering with Cinelli. The Parallax frame set was developed and field-tested over the past 18 months, with Chas and Walton deciding and tuning the bike’s geos. Like with any MASH project, every detail is fleshed by our group of friends. Garrett designed the graphics and colors of the bike and matching skin-suit, drawing inspiration from charts used to check the sharpness of camera optics.’
