For some time now, I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of causal cycling shorts. Luckily Squid Bikes came out with their latest modified D***ies shorts. Huge thanks to the pals over at Squid Bikes for hookin’ me up for testing their product.

Mission Crit | 36-1The energy from the crowd was unbelievable. By standers were shouting and cheering from all corners of the track.EZ1_6113So many strong women came out to Mission Crit and crushed it! Congrats to Jo Celso for taking the W.Mission Crit | 44-1The real battle was between Cesar Valenzuela and Colin Strickland Redhooks overall champion. As they tore apart the field, they created a swift breakaway group. Jaws were dropping when Cesar broke away from the group and maintained a 16 second lead and lapped the peloton, solidifying his first place podium at Mission Crit.

After yet another 9 to 5, Ronnie’s Specialized Crux swept the roads clean. Passing through the canals and finally reaching the dirt roads of Hazel, the Crux eased effortlessly. The pathways were firm yet technical and tested this beauty to its potential. Around nightfall, swarms of (Zika infested?) mosquitos painfully welcomed us by the river. It was then, we realized it was time to head out with the Crux leading ahead.

After the recent Oakley Crossrange meet we figured we should pick the brain of the man behind the glasses and put together a few quick ones for Chas. He was kind enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule to shoot us some pretty solid answers for our first interview in some time…click through for the whole deal!

1. For those who don’t know you, when and what got you started down the road on two wheels?

 

Chas: Hey what’s up my name is Chas, I live in San Francisco CA and try to generally shred life as hard as possible.  I have been riding bikes since I was a kid, to and from school, ripping trails on the weekends.  I got seriously into cycling in Portland, Oregon around 2004 when I got my first CX bike and started racing locally.  It was there that came across bike messengers, racing cyclocross races on their track bikes… literally a slippery slope, and after that I was hooked.

Like Sacramento it’s safe to say Bandung, Indonesia’s bike party has a good mix of different rides. What sets Move the Wheels apart from any other is definitely the trick comp, cold sprints and a bomb looking buffet. Definitely need to get something like this together here!

A couple of weeks ago I hopped the train up to San Francisco to check out the release of a new offering from Oakley. We met up with Chas Christensen at Oakley’s Market street location, and settled in for a quick rundown on the new frames before heading out on a ride. First, a little about the new sunglasses and then a few questions for Chas.

 

The Crossrange Collection is a lot like Clark Kent and Superman –  one pair of shades, but with a quick swap of the arms and nose piece, changing from casual hangout to ride ready doesn’t require a phone booth!

 

Chillin’ – The Lifestyle earsocks have a more relaxed fit for all day comfort, and the nose piece holds them closer to your face.

 

Ridin’ – The earsocks have a much more snug fit paired with Unobtanium™ over the ears to help them stay put on your face once you begin to sweat. The nose piece keeps the frames farther away from your face and also features Unobtanium™ to keep them in place.

 

Lenses- built from a series of dyes that are made to control the color contours. Though created to increase the visibility of road markings,  they also have specific trail prizm lenses if you are more of an off road trail rider.

 

 

 

 

Chas talked a little about his daily routine, gave the group a few pointers of riding in city traffic and we were off.

This past weekend Victor Ouma hosted the biggest, baddest, most insane alleycat in the world and it just wrecked NYC streets once again. This year competitors traveled from all over the world to compete in this brakeless fixed gear street race.
only the brave and courages came out to race in freezing 35 degree weather with rain and snow throughout the race.
