2011 Bike Expo: Photo Re-cap

What a whirlwind trip. Saw my friends, saw my lady, hungout with the raddest people SF has to offer and came up to SF with two of the best dudes a guy could ask for (we were short a few other amazing LA guys, next trip fellas!). We rode around, had beers, eat food, looked at bikes at the expo and swap. I managed to take some photos, so this is the first round of photos, while I wait for the other ones to come through.

SKYLMT: Skyscraper Bars

Oh snap. SKYLMT has new Skyscraper Risers for sale over at their site.
Get on it, I bet these will be going fast.

Featuring a large box area with relaxed bends, the skyscraper bar is the solution for people
who want to run a taller bar but don’t want a crossbar. Clamping area is knurled for no-slip

Mission Workshop: Faroe Hoodie

Look at I heard about this weekend in SF. The Faroe Merino Wool Pullover from MW. Looks great, and the amount of time I will be spending in SF each month from now on, it might be a worthy investment for me...

The Faroe is a semi-fitted pullover that works to bridge the gap between environments. Perfect for both your morning commute and drinks at the bar.

Constructed from a soft and durable Ponti woven New Zealand Merino wool.

Features include: a touring-style rear zippered pocket, extended sleeves to ensure coverage, scalloped cuffs, raw-edge construction, and a semi- fitted hood.

Made in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Swoop on the pre-order here!

Kissena Velo Fund: Official Launch!

The Kissena Velo Fund is Live. I'm very proud to have friends like Jason for spear heading a project this big and Billy for his hard work bringing to us media types. It's a huge undertaking and I wish them the best of luck and that they have all support that we here at TOLA! we can give over the span of this project. You can own a part of this Velodrome and help future generations of Cyclists for years to come. Save the Track Bike and the Velodrome!

TOLA: In the Wild

I love going to other cities and running into TOLA in the wild. Here are a couple from this past weekend. We were out there. A lot of fun happened this weekend. Big thanks to all of our SF friends for showing us so much love. I heard SF was coming down for Cranksgiving next weekend...
