I stubbornly and perhaps foolishly miss the use of cycling caps, particularly at the highest levels of the sport.

New cap from Superb in San Fran
Our new Superb Caps have just landed at the shop. After spending a long time tweaking the design I am really happy with how they turned out and the response we have had with them so far. The new design is a 3 panel black cap with the Superb wordmark creating the traditional center stripes, while the side panels have a subtle black-on-black treatment using the Superb Damask logo that really pops in certain light. Under the brim is BOSTON so you can rep the Bean as well as your local Bike Shop! The caps are 100% cotton and are made in the USA. They are already for sale in the shop and we will add them to the site very soon so all you out of towners can pick one up!

OK, not strictly a cap so totally breaking the rules with self interest but here is The Eddy – Belgian Up! t-shirt just in time to welcome the world’s greatest cyclist to Adelaide for the Tour Down Under.
jJust $21aus, order from here Mon-Domestique.
Nice pic shared by cycling writer Bill Strickland (@TrueBS, where it is also worth checking out his Twitter background image).
I’ve not got a lot else going for me when it comes to cycling talent except looking pro. I liked this quote:
The preference for knee warmers over tights distills down to one elemental fact: no matter how one might try to disguise them, tights are simply not an attractive garment. Not on cyclists. Not on skiers. Not on overweight women at the market. Not on fit women at the Yoga studio. Not on runners, not on swimmers. Not in a box, not on a fox.
