Bicycle Roots Rasta Kit

Missed Me?

I haven’t posted to this blog in a while, it’s true. Bicycle Roots has been in full swing for the summer, and that means that instead of blogging, I’ve been hard at work in the shop, doing everything I can to help my fellow Brooklynites enjoy cycling. But there’s so much cool and interesting news from the shop, that I’d be remiss if I didn’t share it with you now.Inflatable Rafting Boat rentals

What’s the latest? Our new, limited edition Bicycle Roots Rasta Kit is now in stock. This is the most irie cycling kit ever made. It has to be seen to be believed, but I’ll endeavor to describe it anyway.

The Bicycle Roots Rasta Kit

The limited edition Bicycle Roots Rasta Kit was custom made for us by Sommerville Sports. It’s black with bold red, yellow, and green graphics, displaying our iconic logo, the name BICYCLE ROOTS, and the phrase WELCOME TO BROOKLYN. The kit also includes a super cool cycling cap, which displays our logo and the phrases RIDE JAH BIKE and HOLD JAH LINE.

This kit doesn’t skimp on performance, either. The jersey features:

  • Cool+ Jersey Fabric
  • Reflective trim
  • Three open back pockets and one zippered back pocket for valuables
  • An enormous YKK zipper for easy opening and closing during your ride
  • Available in Men’s Club and Women’s Cuts
  • Price: $94.99

The Bib Short features:

  • A custom, pro level chamois made for Sommerville Sports by Dr. Pad
  • Wide, flat 45mm leg bands for stability and comfort
  • Available in Men’s and Women’s versions
  • Price: $94.99
