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.
SF label Endless Ammo is back with a full run of new items for f/w 2013, purpose built goods for that get out and do it lifestyle. I really like what the brand represents, especially their ongoing collaborations with the Macaframa crew. Next time I’m down in the Bay gonna have to cop a few pieces for sure… and click though for more of the catalog-style lookbook.
Wild that 10 years have passed with the Cadence Collection in existence… from Fast Friday in Seattle to a full-fledged cycling apparel line and kit provider out of SF, the brand truly represents the grassroots cycling lifetyle. Congrats to Dustin Klein for growing his artistic vision, and in celebration they’ve released this 10 year kit for the winter months, another hit produced by Capo in Italy. Both my Cadence kits fit/wash/ride like gold, full recommend to go cop right now while your size is still in stock.
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.’
If you’re not familiar with SF OG’s Timbuk2, here’s the history:
‘Timbuk2 is a San Francisco original. We were founded in a San Francisco garage in 1989 by a bike messenger named Rob Honeycutt and have continuously manufactured in the city’s Mission District ever since. Rob made products that served his needs as a messenger, but it was never that simple. He had huge drive, a knack for brand, and an obsession with just-in-time manufacturing. Timbuk2 brought customization to the masses, selling custom messengers to bike shops in the 90′s and launching the first online customizer in 1999. Our product offering has grown to include luggage and laptop bags, but the made in San Francisco custom messenger remains our iconic style and the heart and soul of our company.’
Great lookbook for the California Collection, a run of backpacks, messenger bags and a tote… summer on the coast.
Outs to Dustin Klein and Cadence for this, paying respect to the origins of the culture some of us are a part of. Looking forward to episodes 2 and 3.
New bomb from Massan, filmed last fall, the first piece of online promo for Macaframa 2 coming later this year. Always enjoy the Maca editing style, looking forward to new footage from them rolling out in the coming months.
Here are some selects from FTC‘s s/s 2013 lookbook: you know we have nuff respect for the SF/JP OG’s, and this is more of the consistent good from the line, with the added swagger of the FYL messaging (bot so sure I would rock, but all good regardless). I really like the shell outers, and the tie dye is a win too. Full lookbook where I janked the pic from.
