Sandy also designed a cool back pack you should check out: Sandy’s Betabrand back pack design. A handful more votes and it will go into production.
Here’s a flipbook of a bunch of sort of recent drawings from Taj
A surprise summer shipment of a small number of Taj bikes in the coveted Military Blue colorway arrive next week. Hit up our in-house distributor Full Factory to order one (or tell your favorite bike shop to)!
When we are ready to show new bikes to bike shops we send out something like above. It’s just a preview of what is coming and a way for a bike shop to predict which models they will order from us. We usually include some plea for them to keep the new bikes secret and not share the images. I’m not really sure what we’re so worried about… I think we worry that no one will buy the “older” bikes if they see the new ones. Personally I think it’s more likely to drum up some excitement for the brand and hopefully get folks interested in trying our bikes. So, this year we are letting you all see the very same preview we sent to bike shops. Keep in mind these bikes won’t be out until November. Also, there’s no specs or geo listings in this preview… that will all come later once I get it all organized and fit for print (in our consumer catalog).
So check out the COMING SOON bikes!
We got kits in! Limited numbers available (because making custom kits is rather expensive). The cool thing is not a lot of people will look like you dressed up in a Fairdale kit. Made for us by Castelli you can be sure of the quality and fit (Castelli kits are our favorites). Check ‘em out…
The classic Castelli fit cycling cap is made in Italy. Buy one? Yes you can… here. The jerseys are made here in the USA by Castelli. Again, fit and comfort are awesome. Check them out here.Bib shorts are the best we think. And these ones really truly are the best because they say “Fairdale” on them. Complete your “factory Fairdale” look with a set of these cycling overalls here.
We gave away a Coaster set up with a skaterack to the winner of the “Hipster” hip competition at the Denver stop of Volcom Wild In the Parks event a couple weeks ago. The winner must now grow a mustache, wear decorative scarves and go everywhere with a messenger bag cinched up extra tight. Volcom does a really great job with this fun and free skate event. Top 15 dudes get invited to a $15,000 purse event at Volcom’s private skatepark later this year! Congrats to Devin for winning the bike and cheers to Volcom for having us be a part of things.
Ryan Tuerck got himself a few custom pit bikes thanks to Sunday Bikes and Fairdale. The bikes are designed to match his sliding car and came out pretty darned cool! We always love seeing custom bikes. Check out some more photos below and check Ryan’s amazing driving out too.
