Club Ride:
Club Ride – Go Long Technical Riding Shirt:

Club Ride uses only technical materials and high quality YKK zippers to create a true performance riding shirt and short that is styled for comfort on and off the bike. The Go Long is designed with venting running the full length of the sleeve and down the sides. This style has a large zippered storage pocket in the rear, a zipper system under the pearl snaps for on-the- bike venting adjustment and a music port built in the rear pocket. The fabric is quick dry which gives the shirt anti-stink properties, light weight and wicking for breathability and comfort and feels super nice on the skin. The Go Long is light enough for sun protection during hot summer epic trail rides,  long tours or just a ride to the pub. All Club Ride products are made in the USA.

One Time Offer for NAHBS 2011:

In celebration of handmade bicycles, we are teaming up with Mellow Johnny’s on this one time offer of the Baba Ganoush Commemorative Limited Edition bicycle for NAHBS 2011.

For those of you who don’t know, the original Baba Ganoush was built in 2008 by Sam Whittingham in memory of our dear friend, Peter, whom greatly inspired us to build our passion into a business. This unique bicycle was taken to the 2008 NAHBS in Portland, Oregon. We brought it there hoping that some people may notice it and appreciate all the long hours of work and effort that go into building a handmade bicycle.  We were not expecting to take home the top 3 awards including President’s Choice, People’s Choice and Best in Show and catching the attention of Lance Armstrong who described it as “…one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen, a true piece of art.”  It now resides in Austin, TX at Lance’s bike shop, Mellow Johnny’s.

Well, we are heading to Austin this February for NAHBS 2011 and wanted to do something special in honour of celebrating NAHBS and handmade bicycles.  We have resurrected the idea of a simplified and affordable version of Lance’s Baba Ganoush bike.  This bike would share many of the features and lines of the original bike, but with simplified details to keep the price down.  The bicycles will be handbuilt by Sam Whittingham, just like the original bike. There will be the same signature design elements included like eccentric rear dropouts, twin plate fork crown, curved tubes, semi-integrated seat mast and a hole in the top tube for U-lock.

All the details are shown in the drawing.  Check it out! This is a VERY LIMITED run. Talk to us or Mellow Johnny’s for more details.
