November's Limited Edition line drops today with Charcoal Plaid!
November 07, 2014
Get your fall on with our new limited edition line for November 2014! Our staple bags, Tuck & Roll Backpack, the Becket Backpack, & the Bandicoot mini messenger bag are now available in Charcoal Plaid Wool! These are going to be a super limited edition run, with only 5 of each design available - so get on it quick.
This version of the Tuck & Roll is backed in Cordura with a ripstop liner and this Bandcoot is still lined with our staple truck tarp to keep the water out! Whereas this edition of the Becket has the front panel backed in truck tarp with a ripstop liner, but might not have the same water resistant qualities as our standard Cordura designs. However we couldn't NOT make the becket in Plaid, it just looked way too badass. Also, wool does have natural wicking abilities. It also has an awesome slate grey leather u-lock holster.

Gallant launches a new frame design on Kickstarter!
October 07, 2014
This month, our sister company Gallant Bicycles just launched their first ever Kickstarter campaign to launch their new No. 3 frame! A versatile frame that can be easily set up for city riding, road riding, cyclecross or touring! With the new Gallant No. 3, riders get the flexibility of a bicycle from a frame-builder, including beautiful custom painting options and component choices from SRAM, SHIMANO and CAMPAGNOLO.
With an interchangeable dropout system, the same frame can be setup as single speed, internally geared hub, or external derailleur. It also can accommodate calliper or disk brakes, accepts larger tires if necessary and has clearance for fenders. We love the idea of a local road frame that's painted and assembled right here in Toronto! To check out the full campaign and learn more head on over to their Kickstarter!
October Limited Edition Pedal Straps & Weston Phone Pouch!
October 06, 2014
This October we're dropping the next monthly set of Limited Edition Straps! This time in SNAKESKIN! And not only will it be available as LE Pedal Straps, it will also be available for a Limited Edition Weston phone pouch! Both will be an extremely small run, never done before and never to be repeated. Every run will be numbered by the YNOT crew member who made them (because we actually make everything in house). Each run is only for 10! Ten sets of pedal straps, and ten phone pouches...... so once they're gone... they're gone!
