Brooks of England and Levis: Denim Never Dies!

DenimNeverDies

Brooks England and Levi’s® Commuter™ are teaming up to create a Limited Edition saddle: the Cambium Denim, exclusively available this Summer at Levi’s® Commuter™ Workspaces in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and London, and from October at the Brooks online shop.

Levi’s® Commuter™ is partnering with Brooks England to produce a special bike saddle manufactured from recycled Levi’s® denim. The saddle will be a Limited Edition version of Brooks’ newest product, the Cambium C17, which uses vulcanized rubber pressing techniques to create a comfortable, waterproof, and long-lasting saddle whose features align with the performance benefits of the Levi’s® Commuter™ collection. Teams from Levi’s® Commuter™ and Brooks England are taking this opportunity to work together to create a product of unique beauty and utility.

Last night was a blast…

not only was Joseph welcomed with open arms, he had a pretty nice sunset and his own Mariachi band!

From the moment Joseph arrived at Golden Saddle Cyclery yesterday, I don’t think he quit smiling. I even took a photo of him at one point with the box housing the new Search and State S2-R jersey(which he carried across the country) in front of his face and he said, “I know you can’t see me, but I can’t stop smiling.”

I personally wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out yesterday and helped us in welcoming Joseph to Los Angeles! I also wanted to say thank you to Joseph’s parents, not only for driving from Arizona to hangout at a bike shop, but for producing a standup-guy like Joseph. In my opinion there was no better candidate for #nyctogsc!

Joseph rode from NYC to GSC in 21 days, averaging about 160 miles a day.
