Inside #803 at the Sea Otter Classic

by Zach April 24, 2013

We’re back in Marin for a few days; shaking off the thin veneer of Laguna Seca dust, catching up on a pretty major backlog of emails, and putting in lap after gleeful lap on the new Tamarancho flow trail (rumored to be soon christened “Endor”). But before the Sprinter gets back out on the road, we just wanted to pass along a heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who came out to share a cup of coffee and listen to our story.

There are no second chances with first impressions, so hopefully our unofficial “coming out” party left those in attendance with a good grasp on who we are and what we have set out to accomplish in mountain biking apparel. We had a blast at the show, and have a sneaking feeling that those who stepped into our booth enjoyed checking out the Kitsbow product just as much as we enjoyed showing it. As we drove the Sprinter out of Laguna Seca for the last time, it felt like we were leaving not just a bike event, but an event that celebrated the people that love bikes. And when meeting these people, it was immediately apparent that we are blessed to be surrounded by a family of some of the most passionate, and amazing individuals who call the trail home.

We couldn’t be more excited about the journey ahead, and are thrilled to have you along for the ride. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook to check out the full photoset from our Sea Otter booth. Otherwise, keep tabs on our Sprinter whereabouts by following us here on Twitter.

We’ll see you out there.

Add Beauty: Silca at 100
Add Beauty: Silca at 100

by Nicholas Haig-Arack July 18, 2017

This year SILCA is celebrating a century of bicycling innovation. This legendary company was the first to include pressure gauges on floorpumps, the first to produce a usable portable pump, and the first to produce a valve-controlled CO2 inflator; all necessities that we now take for granted. SILCA was run by the Sacchi family in Milan until it was sold in 2013 to the former technical director for Zipp Speed Weaponry, Joshua Poertner. SILCA is now based in Indianapolis and has carved out a niche for itself by manufacturing precision-engineered, heritage-grade pumps and tools that walk the line between utilitarian duty and aesthetic beauty. We recently caught up with Josh to talk about cycling, art, and everything in between.

The Outsiders’ Guide to Mountain Biking British Columbia

by Lani Bruntz July 07, 2017

With an opening in our Push to Start Summer Tour schedule, we opted to “take the long way around” for a detour de British Columbia on our way to Sun Valley, Idaho. On a whim we fled north from Seattle, first stopping in Bellingham to soak up as much lush Washington terrain as possible. We roughly sketched out what our next week might hold – entering the mecca via Vancouver, heading north to Pemberton, then working our way east and south to depart the country via Rossland. We let our trip unfold hour by hour, trying to make time to ride in all the spots we’ve read and seen so much about.
