This top brings together three early ’90s UK classics – Been Bag clothing, bike maker Chas Roberts (of DOGSBOLX fame) and MBUK team rider Dave Hemming. Just two of these black-and-white specials were made for him, to take to the 1991 World Championships in Il Ciocco, Italy.

2 Frischi flies the (US) flag In 1993, Switzerland’s

3 Retro road cool

Worn by early UK MTB heroes Rory Hitchins, Paul Hinton and Jake Elliott, this Team Raleigh top looked like a classic road jersey with its wool collar and cuffs and chevron design.

Jonathan Kellner Has Big Money Backing His U.S. Stock Trading Startup

When he was handed a debit card with $70 million in the bank, Jonathan Kellner realized his startup was different. ¶ Members Exchange, known as MEMX, started as a protest by banks and market makers against the rising data and connectivity fees charged by U.S. stock exchanges. In the two years since Kellner, 52, signed on as chief executive officer, MEMX Holdings LLC has locked in more than $135 million in funding from 18 stock trading and investing heavyweights, including BlackRock, Citadel Securities, and Morgan Stanley. ¶ Since it went fully live in October, MEMX has clinched 1% of the U.S. market share. Kellner, previously the CEO of Nomura Holdings Inc.’s Instinet, spoke with Bloomberg Markets in February about launching during a pandemic and the surge in meme stocks.
