This is a steel frame set that will last you a lifetime.The steel aero frame is a rarity in today’s over run Carbon and Aluminum world and is one of the highlights in the 14 Bike Co line up. Something that we are proud of and that stands out.”

I am happy to officially announce the release of the ZLOG x 19TOOTH Hardbite straps. I’ve been testing out a pair for several months to make sure they were up to snuff and they completely exceeded my expectations. They worked so well I decided to collaborate and make a small batch to sell to the public. They are scheduled to arrive in a week, but I have a Pre Order up at ZLOGBTQ.COM. Go grab yourself a pair, because like everything else I make, they are limited.
Go check out 19Tooth, maker of fine foot straps.
Loving the new collection from our friends at Actual Pain. They have really upped their game and are now getting into the denim game. I definitely need to get a pair and perhaps a pom beanie. Much more to check out at the web store.
Concept Bikes is a new fixed gear freestyle company based in Vancouver, Canada. The 26″ Assassin is currently be ridden by Tom Mosher and looks to be quite a promising brand considering they offer their bikes with YNOT straps and Sadio component. Check the quick Bike Insiders vid for the bike check and then head over to the Concept Bikes site for more.
While at Interbike I stopped by the YNOT booth to talk about their new messenger bags and pedal straps for 2013. It is always good to see Tom Mosher, and it was a pleasure meeting the Laura and Tony as well. Check out the vid for a close look at YNOT straps, the highly anticipated Cobra backpack, and Gulper bag.

So after a year of beating, my charmer snapped right in half.
Now I need to decide on a new frame, I was thinking either BB17 “Serpent” or Hold Fast “Converter29″. Does anyone know any other 29er frame(s) out there that has a mid or negative bb?
This design has been high on my list of re-prints. They went really quick when they originally went up for sale in winter of 2009, and I haven’t done another batch since. They’re available for pre-order at ZLOGBTQ.COM and will ship next month. Don’t sleep, it might be another 3 years before they get printed again.
I will be in Vegas all week at Interbike with the Bike Insiders crew. We will be doing as many interviews as possible and checking out the latest gear on the market. We have an editor on hand who will be putting together videos the same day and uploading them to the Bike Insiders youtube channel for all of you to enjoy. If you see Peter or myself be sure to say hello.
Nucult just put up a bike check for one of their riders Romain Tromss. Its definitely a dialed build.
I’m excited companies are still coming up with new 29er frames and even more excited to see people shred on them. View the full bike check here.
For those who have missed out on these tees in the past, I have started taking orders for Drop Bars Not Bombs tees, tanks and crewneck sweatshirts at ZLOG Boutique. The first 20 orders will receive a Drop Bars Not Bombs pin as well as a ZLOG stash bag. The tentative ship date on these is November 1st, but the more people that pre-order early, the faster the production process will be. Don’t sleep on these!

Here is a really good looking jersey from Deaf Pigeon. The pattern, colors, and simplicity puts this jersey among some of the best I’ve seen. Up there with Mash and Golden Saddle ones. Full zipper is a must!

If you’ve ever wanted to get yourself a Mission Workshop bag, this would be a good time to grab one. For the next week, Huckberry has savings on a bunch of Mission Workshop gear, including my favorite bag, the Vandal. Expect to see them for $30-$40 cheaper than anywhere else. Huckberry only has deals like this for only a limited time, so don’t sleep on in. It might be the only chance to save this much on such a quality bag.
Some of the ZLOGCAT tees that were leftover from the recent alleycat are now online at ZLOGBTQ and only $10. This is a limited run, and only about 50 were printed. They are available in black or purple haze.
At first glance the Solid Gray backpacks look like some jetpack from a science fiction movie. Unfortunately, they can’t make you fly, but what they lack in jet-propulsion, they make up for in style & ingenuity. Solid Gray packs are made from a single sheet of highly durable polypropene, which has never before been used for consumer products. This high tech material gives the bag a unique geometric shaped hardshell that protects it’s contents. Inside you will find two compartments; one large one with elastic bands for a laptop or tablet and another smaller compartment for all of the little stuff. These bags are proudly made in the Netherlands and retail for about €139 (roughly $180). You can purchase one at Solid-Gray.com
Matt is such a sick rider and a nice dude to boot. If you catch him riding, he’s always reppin’ that Halloway gear. Good stuff!
The homie Nick Ramirez is slangin’ his own brand of wax nowadays and it comes in a cassette tape shape. Wonder if these things will fit in those old school jewel cases. Be sure to check them out and pick up a brick for $5.
