Conner Cycles Scorcher

Connor Cycles Scorcher

I want to believe in a wood bike and Connor Cycles makes a nice looking case for one. Their goal of “stripped down simplicity” is right up our alley here at Mawoi so that doesn’t hurt either. Even better the flagship bike gets its name from a Denver bicycle street gang from the turn of the last century – who knew! Check out the video on the Connor site for a little Denver bicycling history.

Unmarked Shoes

Unmarked is a new footwear company from Mexico. Mexico has an amazing amount of quality leather – as a majority of US hides are sent to Mexico for processing. And of course known for handiwork it makes sense a nice footwear company would rise up.
The descriptions are what made it for me though – the blue soled Poncho is described as made for “active people that needs a shoe with sneaker’s performance”. And the aptly named “undefined” description simply ends with, “games games games games”. Perfect.

Budnitz Bicycles

Budnitz Bicycles

This might not seem like the right time of year to be talking about bicycles (is there really a wrong time?) but these aren’t ordinary bikes. These are what I’d call “Christmas wish list” bikes. From our pal Paul at Budnitz Bicycles comes all titanium, made in the USA, belt drive, disc brakes fancy bike goodness. Basically all the features I’ve been looking for and the addition of an extremely lightweight (and yes, spendy) titanium frame. Now just to save up that 5k….

Snowy, windy, but any day you get to catch big brook trout like this is a great day.

Holtkamper trailer tents

It’s Fall. This time of year increases the camping drive for me for some reason. I love summer camping, but fall gets me really itching to get out there which means I’ve been trolling even more camping sites and talking about even more camping gear lately. Usually I’m more the minimalist so a trailer like this Kyte from Holtkamper seems like too much. But man, that kitchen? That bed? I might be able to talk the girl into a seriously extended stay in that type of luxury. Where are you guys at with the tow behind camping gear?
