Timbuk2 partnered with New Jersey based TerraCycle to create these unique messenger bags. Made from reclaimed US Postal mail bags, each one is slightly different. Otherwise, expect the same high-quality bag that Timbuk2 is known for.

If you’ve been to Japan, you know how good their bicycle shops are. And Blue Lug is one of the very best. They not only sell and service many of the top brands, they have lots of exclusive and original products.

Heads up, there is a new (relatively) active wear brand, Makers & Riders, putting out apparel that is both functional and highly stylish, following the path of “small batch craftsmanship.” The product line is limited at this point, but I hear they have many projects in the works and what they do offer is of the highest quality. 3-season waterproof pants, 4-season commuters, waterproof trousers and a weatherproof jacket make up the active wear, and a t-shirt with a pocket cut from vintage cycling jerseys adds a nice stylistic finish.
Follow Makers & Riders for their latest releases.
Someone made this. I’ll let the comments section pass judgement…but there it is. It exists.
From Bicycle Retailer:
Giant USA is targeting new, entry level bike consumers with a new campaign that includes lower retail prices on 30 models of bikes starting March 31.
The company is calling the campaign “Gateway to Adventure,” and said it will be more than just a short-term promotion.
“This is a long-range strategic change,” said John “JT” Thompson, Giant USA’s executive sales director in a statement Wednesday. “We’re making every effort possible to broaden the market and get more new consumers into our retailers’ stores.”
