We’ve had a cycle-centric last couple of weeks as we prepared to throw
the ArtBike Party at Hot Italian (last Thursday, pics coming soon!)
& NAHBS Show at the Convention Center (last Friday-Sunday).
While partying & conference-ing it up, we met some great guys
and found some notable cycling apparel companies as well.
In a sea of spandex, khaki cargo pants and comfy sweaty t-shirts at the NAHBS convention, a well-dressed man definitely stood out. I perked up when I saw a guy wearing a GREAT pair of well-fitted dark denim jeans.
But they weren’t just any jeans – they were cuffed with reflector strips on the inside.
Wait, STYLISH cycling pants? No way.
Rapha does carry top of the line spandex etc for serious cyclists,
but we’re most excited about the handful of commuter friendly pieces, like this jacket.
CYCLELOGICAL GEAR: “bicycle commuter gear & ideas.”
Christian Utzman- SF resident, cyclist & avid thrifter.
Stylishly co-ordinated, Christian and his bike are obviously meant to be together.
And last but not least, on this Manly Monday,
a HUGE thank you to two men we’re super proud
to have in our community: Rick Houston & Steve Rex.
for their venue city this year (a once-yearly show!). Not only did he get them here but he then
volunteered his time to run all the volunteers and most of everything else for NAHBS.
Tons of time, effort, planning, blood, sweat & tears on his part made NAHBS a success.

Thanks for an incredible show!
