We started taking our jerseys off in the summer on hot days and found that all the snacks, phones, tools and wallets had nowhere to go. Walton cut up an old leg warmer one day and stitched a pocket to his bib shorts, and immediately they became his go-to bibs. Heading out on a ride wearing only a base layer or just a loose t-shirt was so freeing, that we began to develop a product with Endo Customs in LA based on Walton’s customized racing bib shorts.
They’re also doing a Royal Blue Cargo Bib!
I personally think this bib will forever change the cycling apparel game. I know Giro tried this once and it didn’t really take off, but I also believe the Giro New Road stuff was just about two years too early. People just weren’t ready! I just wanna rock these with pearl snap button ups all summer!
Great work guys!!!

CyclingTips: So, when did you start Team Dream?
Talkington: Where to begin? My friends and I had played with the idea of a fictional race team for some time, but Team Dream officially started in 2013. I was working at a bike shop in LA called Golden Saddle Cyclery (GSC). Those guys were (and still are) doing some awesome stuff and I was lucky enough to be friends with them, after 27 monthly installments of $999.99 (laughs).
In the beginning, Team Dream Bicycling Team was a spin off of GSC in a way. As far as the inspiration for the brand is concerned, my best friend and I went to Italy for the Giro in 2012. After the race, we traveled around for another month riding the Alps and making friends. You can’t help but notice how passionate Italians are about their professions and you can see it in the quality of product they produce.
All of the luft!!!
