Reports from the field

 Our first winter back in Colorado has been rad.  Its impossible not to be inspired by the beautiful colors of the mountains, bright yellow sun and endless blue skies of our backyard. Our opportunity for field testing is that much greater and allows us to do what we really love. We try to take full advantage of the outside beauty around us and take our soulrun gear along with us for some fun and field testing. Here are some pics from some winter adventures here in Nederland, CO.

Work in the soulrun sweatshop has been awesome, I've really enjoyed some of the recent custom gear requests I've received and am grateful to have the opportunity to work with amazing people in the cycling community.  At soulrun its not all about busting out as much gear as I can to fill the shop and make lots of money. That will never happen and that's ok. I just love making gear.
Here are some of the recent custom items I've made over the last few months:

Another bit of awesomeness was a recent article about our Pro Mechanics Tool Roll  featured in Cyclocross magazine! Many thanks to our friend Chandler of Snyder Cycling Services for the love:)

In other news this month, I've had the opportunity to give back to my loyal customers who I appreciate so much. I try to support as many bike related benefits as I can and this month I've had to honor to work with my great friends of the New England Cyclocross community.  I don't know where soulrun would be without this fantastic crew! We recently got a nice mention in our good friend Chip's blog post, this made our day, check it out!

As always thanks so much for all the awesome support we so appreciate it. I leave you with some nice pics of our recent trip to Moab! Enjoy and Happy Spring :-)

3 Years at Soulrun

Geez its been a while since I last updated the blog. Well, this February we celebrated three awesome years at soulrun! Check out our three year slideshow roundup.

The best 3 years ever!

We celebrated with a few friends at our soulrun sushi get down.

It was a blast! We're so psyched to be doing what we love - riding, being outside and making Rad gear. Thanks for all the support :-)

Even though I said I wouldn't take any more custom orders, I just couldn't say no to some of the the requests from customers. Check out some of the gear I've made over the last few months.

 Nice Belgie Pro tool roll.

 We were very psyched to make a few Pro tool rolls for our friends over at WD-40 Bike

On a very important note, this February we've partnered up with our friends at Team PHenomenal Hope a Pittsburgh-based cycling team racing for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) to raise awareness about pulmonary hypertension (PH), the PHA, and funds to find a cure. This month a dollar from each sale at soulrun will go toward Team PH hope. Be sure to check out their facebook page too!

Like of the rest of the cycling community Joe and I got wrapped up in the CX Worlds excitement. The Belgian invasion on Louisville inspired a limited edition of soulrun gear, check it out!

I've got a few more Belgie inspired wallets, tool rolls and phone sleeves coming to the shop soon...

We were also very psyched to work with our friend Matt Roy of MM Racing who gave us some design ideas for a tool roll he could use at CX Worlds. I took his designs and came up with this lovely sparkle green with blue trim tool roll we've decided to call the "Roy Roll" check it out!

Its not been all work though at soulrun, we're definitely enjoying our new home of Nederland, Colorado!

Well that's all for now, hope everyone is doing awesome, we're looking forward to more rad gear and good times this Spring! Thanks for checking us out :-)
