Well then, No post for half a year. I have been spend a lot of time dialing in my bikes. Here is one of them, the 1980 Alps 650A touring bike that I acquired from an old friend Lek couple years ago. Recently outfitted with Nitto Campee low rider rack for 700c, along with pannier bags, saddle bag and front bag by Ostrich. When loaded, the long trial geometry of this bike really gives the solid handling. I can feel the bike hugging on the asphalt on the cushy 38mm Panaracer tires. I am really happy with the current build. We will see how it go when I take it out beyond my daily 30 miles ride.
Get them here before it’s gone. Last batch sold out in one day!!!!

Our buddy Kyle and the gang down in LA Golden Saddle Cyclery cooking some nice and good looking kit here. I will get one fur sure..
You can see a few more images…HERE!
So starting today until May 7th(Kits should be delivered 4 weeks later.) we will be doing a pre-order for the Golden Saddle Cyclery kit made by Endo Customs here in Los Angeles, CA. The jersey can be purchased in white or black(you can even buy both like I did). A unisex bib and women’s short will be offered, along with arm warmers. Key features of each piece are listed on the items page. Feel free to email email@example.com with any questions. Both the women’s and men’s jerseys are race cut. I’m not saying size up, that’s just the cut. You’ll have to decide how aero you wanna be. These things aren’t cheap by any means but compared to a lot of other brands out there I’d say say we’re offering up a pretty competitive price for premium goods manufactured here in the U.S. of A. And I’m damn sure you’ll be the best looking one on the ride, making you more confident and a better cyclist. ;)
And Arm Warmers…HERE!
