3rd Annual NJS Show and Ride: October 23rd 2011

Hooray! It's back again. A few of our friends are really putting work and have a ton of people helping out this year. We are a proud sponsor for the 2nd year in a row and lending some help for this ride. Year after year it gets better and better. You get to see the some the most beautiful NJS track bikes in SoCal. People go all out for this one. Think of it as a car show for Track bikes. New this this year it benefits the Encino Velodrome, where the ride ends. So, come out and ride, race or buy stuff to help out the Velodrome. Save the Track bike! Big ups to Simon for spearheading this event.

Twenty five years of FTC. Amazing. I remember visiting my sister in SF from Alaska and always making FTC one of my shopping stops in the city. Now Chrome has teamed up with FTC, to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a a very limited Yalta Rolltop. I might have to cop... Bringing back memories.

The FTC25 logo is engraved into the sharktooth closure that keeps the rolltop secure. Limited to 600 pieces worldwide and available exclusively through FTC, Chrome and select retailers...These bags will be gone quick. Get yours!

RHC Milano 2011: Chas and Crihs

Nike Stadium Milano has some great photos up on their Fb page of the RHC Milano 2011. Some great shots of our homies Crihs and Chas really stand out. I'm always down to show our friends some love, and since these two have traveling the states by bike and the world by plane the last few months, they really deserve it. I can't even begin to think about how much these two have raced and rode in the last month alone. These are beasts amongst men. Keep shredding boys.

Outlier: Fall 2011: In a Technical Nature

Fall is upon us. Shorter days, long nights, awesome fall/ winter riding while wrapped cozy gear. I love this time of year, even in LA, where the changes are sutble. Ain't nothing like riding all bundled up and ready for action. Haha! Outlier is dropping their Fall line. Check it out here.

There is a place where nature and technology intertwine like lovers to create something new. Cottons twist around nylons, wools bond to fleeces, artificial down is layered between wool knits and wovens, nanotech dosed nylons are modeled after lotus leaves, cottons are engineered so tightly they become water barriers.

At Outlier we want to create the future of clothing; to get there nature and technology must overcome their age old conflicts and weave into one. Outlier Fall 2011: In A Technical Nature.
