You should prolly swoop on these before they are gone...
These look great.
Deets from Outlier:
"The Outlier 60/30 Shorts. A longer and more relaxed version of our Three Way Shorts, clocking in with an 11 inch inseam. Our 60/30 Cloth combines the soft hand-feel of cotton with the high performance of nylon, and adds a four way stretch for maximum mobility. The linen-cotton flow through pockets and hidden drawstring mean these can double as board shorts during impromptu beach getaways."
We just need summer to happen...
I have known Anthony over at Freqnt Flyr for quite sometime now. We would just shoot the shit and talk
about bikes and the industry. He has been developing his own brand and frames for last few years.
He approached me on the Commuter angle of riding Track bikes in the city, and asked if I would like to
test out a prototype frame made for Urban Commuters. Something to really take the abuse of city riding,
yet able to keep up with the demands of riders like me. Basiclly a commuter frame, you would want to race an Alleycat on.
The GD frame is what Anthony delivered to me earlier this week. Now I get to beat the shit out of this frame. Yay!
I'm gonna build this up from the ground, just what a basic commuter would build. Nothing too flashy, just solid parts.
Yet it will be a good looking build. Love the Red color, it'll look good with black components, maybe some white accents.
I'll keep you posted as it comes along, I'm open to suggestions as to what to put on it as well.
Thanks to Freqnt Flyer for the frame, I look forward to shredding on it.
We get offers to test or review products here on TOLA! Sometimes the products don't fit what we do,
or aren't even bike related. This was one of those I had to think about for a minute. Bike Wrappers, reflective wrapping
(like top tube pads) for your bike. Pretty cool idea.
