Tested | Hiplok Gold Superbright

Posted by: Chris Yang

I’ve been looking for some waist chain locks for some time and always amazed by the products from Hiplok! Huge thanks to them for sending their proud lock for our test product review. Hiplok combines the concept of adjustable belt with chain lock, which makes it easy to loosen and tighten. For riders in Taipei City, sometimes it’s hard to lock the bike to a pole with a small U-lock. Hiplok wearable bike lock helps the cyclists easily and quickly lock their bikes and…the most important of all, it gives you more safety.

 

The Hiplok Gold Superbright features a highly reflective sleeve, giving maximum visibility when riding on the streets at night! If you are a messenger, this lock definitely suits you! For more info. head to their website and check out more details of Gold Superbright! Get your bike locked safely and buy more time!

Haven’t had a proper vacation in a while (years) so a week in Oregon has been great. Didn’t do much other than Snap things aside from these photos of the track bike. Some nice trails up here…

King Of Track 2016 & Korea

Posted by: Chris Yang

First of all, I got to be honest that I never though I would go to Korea since I’m not very in fond of K Pop and eating spicy food. However, after this travel, it becomes one of my favorite countries to travel again! From 6/3-6/8, me and my homies went to participate in their 10th King Of Track velodrome and crit races. It was really exciting and fun to watch this kind of intensive level of race! But what made me feel so good was the atmosphere of the whole event. It’s like a combination of casualty and seriousness! Met Paolo Bravini and some other guys of Team Cinelli Chrome and saw some dudes of Leader Bikes crushing the races and got podium in almost every single one. It’s also great to meet some new Korean dudes at the event and the Home Bike bikes shop. The event was just extraordinary and I certainly look forward to seeing it grow up!

 

After 6/6, it’s a independent trip for Morgan and I. With the help of Jack and Lee Seung Hyeon, we were able to see the beauty of Seoul, the city, the streets, the culture, the food and so forth! Riding in Seoul was not as easy as we thought…some roads were just too rough but yet overall…it’s a great city to have some fun and ride! Time was limited, our trip was narrowed down but this won’t be our last time in Seoul! A short, casual documentary can be seen here on Track Or Trick fan page!

Nate’s 2007 Raleigh Rush Hour Pro.

Posted by: kris

Aside from hand built frames you don’t often see custom color rides that stray from the otherwise stock paint. Nate‘s green Rush Hour Pro is a prime example of the potential a touch personal flavor can add to a build. Despite getting this bad boy already in the mean green, it’d be hard to argue that 2007 never looked so good! We met up for a handful of photos yesterday that are after the click and be sure to check him on the regular for more…

Will’s Done Deal Polo.

Posted by: kris

As competition has gotten more serious so polo bikes have evolved into something far different than the track bikes with drops seen early on. Short court bike polo has led to a demand for more control, stronger parts and a generally more maneuverable rides. From custom disk brake forks to tighter geometries the bike polo bike of today is in a class all its own. Taking a closer look at Will’s ride on a recent night out here in Sacramento I had to grab a few photos of this beast. Made here in California by Jai of Done Deal this is easily one of the best bikes I’ve seen on the court!

After making the move to San Francisco #sacaframa staple Patrick Curley has been frequently rollin’ with Matt Reyes and the Wheel Talk dudes. They met up recently for a day of shooting around SF and the iconic Muni buses. His green MASH Histogram is easily one of the best setups on the street and well worth some photo time! Peep the whole set here

Trappin’ | Super (pana)Sonic.

Posted by: kris

Even with all the eye candy parked at Velo Trap this bronze Panasonic demands attention the moment you walk in. The bright orange is impossible to miss and as shiny as the day it first hit the track. One of the many NJS frames at the trap this is still one of my favorites if for nothing more than the color…

Howard’s Presto Vintage Track Bike

Posted by: Chris Yang

It’s been a long time not dropping a visit to Broz Cycle to see my dude Howard’s new vintage track frame Presto. Have a great look closely at its incredible paint job. I’m actually not a fan of Keirin track bikes but this one really got me into it! A bike always shows the taste of its owner and Howard got his finest components built with this great frame. See more on his Insta and have a click on his bike shop fan page.

Trappin’ | That Samson Sparkle.

Posted by: kris

With a proper cache of vintage track and road bikes the newly revamped Velo Trap here in Sacramento has become the go-to for urban cycling. Though they stock or can order just about anything, it’s these rare NJS  frames and other track goods that really help them stand out. Ill be popping by the next couple of weeks to share some of the jewels hanging in the shop and if you haven’t paid them a visit it would be well worth a peek! With a single flare fork crown and that green sparkle paint this Samson is just the tip of the iceberg…
