Portland Design Works has released a matte black version of their popular Full Metal Fenders. This new Matte Black color is only available in dealers which is a great play on PDW’s part to help direct business to the local bike shop.
A good set of fenders cost between $40-55 and could be the difference of you driving, or having very wet and cold feet when getting to work. These fenders from Planet Bike have survived a year under me and I would endorse them if you need something for your 29er bike!
It isn’t everyday that a camera / messenger bag gets over $1.8m of funding on Kickstarter (with 38 days to go). Perhaps it is because The Everyday Messenger bag is epic in an understated kind of way.
Besides cyclocross bikes, the city style genre of bikes is my bread and butter. These are the bikes that range between $500-1200 and can take someone from an interested and concerned to a triathlon racing momma. The Alysa series from Raleigh is their take on women’s city bikes.
