My Gear (Not Sponsored) Part 4: @vegan.athletic Apparel Jersey - The best looking jersey on the market I believe, made from Bluesign approved fabrics (AKA sustainable), a perfect fit (@danielbovalino has refined the jerseys over and over from this early model) and ethical production (everyone is treated well). I'm super excited to see what DB has in stall for the future of his company.
My Gear (Not Sponsored) Part 3: @searchandstate S2-R Performance Bib Shorts - Easily the bed fitting, most comfortable chamois and superior heavy duty, yet lightweight materials that I've experienced in a pair of cycling shorts. These bad boys are made in NY and you can feel the large amounts of love that goes into each garment. I also really enjoy the minimalistic design and colouring.
My Gear (Not Sponsored) - Part 2: Bontrager Ballista w/ MIPS Helmet - I'm not joking that when I first put this thing on my head shot forward because my neck muscles' memory was used to fighting more wind resistance even using my previous helmet. After many helmets this one is easily my favourite, it's super comfortable, looks awesome, has a great price for a top helmet, a really snug fit, the MIPS reduces your chances of brain damage during a fall and the crash replacement policy is the true testament of @ridebontrager 's main goal to provide safety to the consumer within their helmet line.
My Gear (Not Sponsored) - Part 1: Shimano R321 - My favourite shoes so far, heat mouldable upper, strong carbon sole, solid durability, lots of room for cleat adjustment and a snug fit. I think they look pretty slick too. I just need to remember to keep them clean as you can see that right shoe looks much more tasty 😋
WATCH MY STORIES TOMORROW TO WIN.....Last Saturdays winner who was randomly selected of my "Watch all my stories on Saturdays, ask cycling questions and follow @velo.goals to get reposted and have a chat with me about cycling or whatever you want Competition" is... funnily enough a sweet little company @sehen.bike who are in the process of pre selling their cycling sunglass rear view mirror on Indiegogo (link on my bio)
I just got off a skype call to one of the founders Arkady who was a sweet dude, this is what he gave me to describe their product, company and vision: "In the words of Sehen founder and inventor (also my dad, haha), Erik Borys:
Many times a mistake creates a miracle. While I was playing with my children, I found a piece of a toy that I managed to modify, and suddenly I had a bike mirror that was as steady as a car’s rear view mirror. It was incredible, and believe me when I say that if you're a rider you have never felt this feeling. The image was very precise, and I began to feel really safe riding my bike on the street - on any street - with or without bike lanes.
The most important part about Sehen is that it doesn't vibrate at all, showing you a very clear image that makes you feel incredibly safe and sure of what you are doing when riding your bicycle on the street.
Time Availability: We will begin shipping at the end of October for Kickstarter and Indiegogo backers.
Price: $24 on Indiegogo." I'm big into improving safety so this product gets a big tick from me!
They're going to send me one of their final production tests before sending off the pre-sale orders, so i'll post an update when I get it
BTW i'm not being paid to promote them, my finger just landed on their name haha

REPOST: @bikegallerymelb beach ride. Officially miss summer now, but the body has definitely settled into this winter.. #dumplings and #beers are a food group of their own.
Thanks for the super comfy bamboo Multi Sport socks @wildernesswear After a long ride mixed with rain and dirt my feet were feeling funky fresh and pain free. I figured being 90% bamboo they're as close to wearing plants on my feet as possible. 100% Australian Made also means that they're ethical
Even if your cruising down the street, going to the cafe or supermarket, 500m from home ALWAYS wear your helmet. Most of the 💀on the 🚴🏽 are close to home. It's ain't cool being dead. My favourite helmet so far is the @ridebontrager Ballista w/ MIPS #notsponsored
Coffee.. I stopped drinking it for a few years because it would do weird things to my throat/make me a bit shaky, I've learnt that the best way to drink it is... be hydrated, eat before/after, try not to rely on it when you're tired & soy over milk 📸 @cardiocollin
