Nau M1 Striped Polo Shirt

It’s no accident I write often about Nau, as I find their product line appealing and their company practices responsible. The Vice Blazer is still one of my favorite items, and it’s since been joined by the M1 Striped Polo. This is a simple polo made from 18 micron merino wool. It is a summer weight shirt perfect for the climate in LA. During the day you stay cool, but at night when the temperatures drop, the merino wool keeps you comfortable. It is not by chance that my favorite clothing is made from merino, as it really is the perfect material. It regulates temperatures perfectly, rarely suffers from odor, is machine washable, and lasts a long time if taken care of properly. I like the styling of this polo as it has lapped seams at the shoulders, setting it apart from other polos. Nau is quite good at differentiating their product, and that in turn makes me appreciate it even more.

Keywin Carbon Pedal

 

Today I ran into a friend in Mill Valley who is running the Keywin Carbon Pedals. I was impressed, and will get the back story on these in the future. I am also hoping to get a pair for testing and review on Velospeak.

Ryder Hesjedal Wins Giro d’Italia

 

Garmin Barracuda has achieved their first Grand Tour win with Ryder Hesjedal at the Giro d’Italia. It was an incredibly close race, with 16 seconds separating the winner from the second place spot. Yesterdays climb up the Stelvio Pass was an amazing stage, though not the deciding one. It all came down to todays individual time trial. Very exciting indeed.

Shoes Book and a Bike

Those who know me are aware I like having my bikes in full view in the dining room. Well, here’s a solution for giving a bike an even more prominent place in your home. This is the Shoes Book and a Bike stand from POSTFOSSIL. They are a Swiss collective of designers creating and producing objects for the home. Their studio is in Zurich, and they currently have about a dozen different objects for sale on their website. I hope to be able to check out their studio this July.
