Sputnik Woolistic cycling cap

This is the ultimate winter wool cycling hat for cyclist. Sewn in two layers. Inner layer is 100% extra fine Merino wool,outer layer is 73% Merino wool with 20% polyamide and 7% elastic that helps keep out wind and offers a snug fit. Fits under a helmet without removing the padding. Double layered sides and front half of mid-section keep ears and forehead warm and reduce wind penetration. Synthetics can't match this performance or comfort. Sputnik saves you in winter! Machine washable.

Showers Pass VelEau - Get the pack off your back!

Get the pack off your back
The Showers Pass® VelEau™ 42 is a unique, bicycle-mounted hydration system, designed specifically for mountain, road, triathlon, touring and recreational cycling. The VelEau Hydration System eliminates the need for a cumbersome backpack-style hydration pack; and is a safer and more easily accessible alternative to traditional down-tube mounted bottles.
More water, less hassle
VelEau™ was invented by an engineer and avid cyclist who, as he was preparing for a grueling 100-mile mountain bike race in the heat of summer, was faced with the choice between a single water bottle and a hot and sweaty hydration backpack. He decided to develop something better: 42 ounces of water, with the weight off his back. VelEau 42.
A revolutionary concept
The VelEau™ Hydration System fits securely under the saddle, and employs two patent-pending retractable reels to allow the rider safe, easy access to the hydration tube bite valve. The reels use a tough 3-ply nylon parachute cord, tested to over 180,000 cycles; and two superstrong magnets to automatically return the tube to its proper position. In short: a safer, easier solution.  Weighs 16 oz.

Detours Coffee [Dry] Bag

The Coffee Bag is a tribute to Seattle’s favorite brewed beverage.  Made out of food-grade, waterproof TPU fabric, the Coffee Bag is a versatile dry bag that can be used for anything you want!  Throw in your lunch and use the two-point attach system to secure the bag just about anywhere on the bike – under the seat, on top of your your rack, or even in your water bottle cage!  Or just use it as a dray bag to toss in a pannier.  Just like there are a million ways to order your favorite coffee drink, there are a million ways to use your favorite Coffee Bag!
We’ve made five finely crafted blends, each dedicated to riding in a state we love:
  • The Evergreen Blend: ride through the forests and around Mt. Rainier in our home state of Washington.
  • The Mile High Blend: ride through the alpine wonderland of Colorado.
  • The Highway 1 Blend: ride down the Pacific Coast Highway in California.
  • The 10,000 Lakes Blend: ride through the 10,000 lakes and Twin Cities in Minnesota.
  • The Lighthouse Blend: ride along the rocky coast in Maine.


    Here are some of the art from the project's website.

    Handsome Devil

    Infinitely customizable, the Devil will make any mortal man irresistably Handsome.

    The Devil is back for 2011. As before, The Devil can be built up in every way imaginable. City commuter, touring, single speed, internally geared, essentially everything that a bike meant for pavement should be. The most exciting thing about The Devil this year though, is not the color. We have added upgrades! The Devil now comes with a seat collar and built in pump peg to house our custom painted frame pumps (sold separately). Handsomely, the frameset comes naked with the new for 2011 decal sheet included.

    It's all in the Details:

    • 4130 double-butted cromoly
    • Available in Grandma's Ashes for 2011
    • Parallel 73° head and seat angles
    • longish top tube paired with a medium-low 70mm bottom bracket drop give a stable, sure-footed ride
    • neutral 45mm fork rake
    • Traditional, forward-facing rear dropouts allow for derailleurs, internal-geared hubs, or single-speed transmissions.
    • The dropout spacing (132.5) accommodates road or mountain hubs.
    • The steerer tube is 400mm (biggest in the business)
    • Plenty of tire clearance
    • Rack mounts and fender mounts galore
    • Fork Only also available for purchase.
