I'm a big fan of mash clothing

http://mashsf.com/
Sadly only available from San Fran (online with extortionate shipping)
Predominantly road attire


Chari NYC
I bought these last summer in the sale
http://www.chariandconyc.com/osloh-2012charishorts.aspx
Love them to bits

Like the idea that no west coast bike shops would sell east coast labels and vice versa


Vulpine

Bought the rain jacket last year, but ended up liking the rapha city jacket more cut wise.
Well made product all the same


Cadence clothing is nice too
Shipping hurts and but kinda pissed I didn't buy some of the pervious kits

Tokyo fixed stock some of it at a high mark up

Really obvious one that nobody has mentioned yet (not the most technical line but it is cycling orientated) the Fred Perry cycling/Wiggo range

when I come back from Oz I think I may buy a bike - looking at single speed purely because my conditioning coach reckons it'll give me a slightly better workout. Keeping in mind I'd be a casual cyclist, cycling short distances, and shallow as it sounds, would want it to look good, anyone got opinions on Mango and State bikes for cheap(ish) entries?

When you say single speed do you mean fixed, or single speed with a free wheel?

Trying to research brands that do OK cycling x fashion crossover ranges.

So far I have:

Rapha
LMNH
VELECO
Tokyo Bike (Accessories only)
Donhou (Tshirts only)
Levis
Mission Workshops

Any more suggestions? Who does this in the US and Japan?

H&M are doing a colab with Brick Lane Bikes, out next couple of months I think.
Shouldn't be too pricey but might be some nice bits.

Need a windproof jacket to ride in this type of weather.
LBS said a Polaris, any good? If not any recommendations on something a bit cooler looking?

Anyone here into dirt jumping, freeride, downhill?
Just bought a nicely spec'd kona bass to get back into it, since I'm living a short ride from Chicksands when I'm back at home this summer

Saw this, pretty decent prices will probably pick up some.
