NS Analog.

Posted by: kris

Once upon a time NS Bikes made a fixed freestyle frame that rode a tad bit more like a track bike. Fast forward a few years and the NS Analog is looking prime as a city machine that can take a bit of a beating. Follow the brands sales dude Piotr Jurczak as he makes his way through Gdansk to the NS headquarters. Looks like a pretty damn killer commute!

Alex’s BB17 Transfer.

Posted by: kris

After taking first at Saturday’s Red Bull Steep Crest the homie Alex Gonzalez was still kicking around the bay yesterday. He rolled around Oakland with us popping wheelies on his super clean BB17 Transfer. At the last spot of the day I snuck off with it for a few photos. A real street machine right here…

Smither’s M-idea.

Posted by: kris

Friday was a pretty wild day for me but I managed to sneak in a few photos of the young buck Smither’s newest creation. This kid has gone through more bikes this year than most of us have owned yet they always end come out pretty damn proper. Not too often you see and M-idea on the street and this Ebay score came in looking like it came straight off a 90′s shop wall. Some proper track track parts plus a hell of a deal on the ZIPPs and he’s got one nutty NJS build. Click through for a handful more of this purdy thang….

State Bicycle Off-road Division.

Posted by: kris

State has been hard at work curating their new Off-road Division and it’s nothing short of awesome. Branching out from their track roots just a bit their new cyclocross and fat rigs are bound to help you get down and dirty. Of the four new models the Thunderbird is easily my favorite though the Megalith fatty looks like it could be a hell of a ride. Peep the whole line here and check back for some test ride photos once I get my mitts on one!

Spun Studio Bike Shop

Posted by: Chris Yang

Here introducing another my favorite bike shop Spun Studio. Love their street style all over the place in the shop!

A 6 years shop starts from 2008 and mainly focuses on street style side in fixed gear culture. Selling clothing such as Mishka, Shadow Conspiracy, UVT, and the brand I luv most Cadence Collections. Bikes such as Breakbrake 17 Karma and Transfer, Cinelli, Ridley, Colossi, and some dope handmade customized local frames from Stubborn Cycleworks!

Last week I had a great deep discussion with Kenny about the fixed gear culture in Taiwan now.

Kenny ” The future direction of Spun will keep the original idea, which is the street side of the culture. Too many fixed gear riders in Taiwan are losing that side and doing some road bike stuff ” …can’t agree more…always keep the real spirit out there! Check out the fan page and Instagram for more photos!

W-Water Cafe-The Finest Collections!

Posted by: Chris Yang

Last week having some discussions with the owner of the most unique bike cafe in Taipei City, or probably all over the world. Here it is…W-Water!

The owner 暉涵, who started running cafe on 2007. At that time, collecting some rare, finest, classic, age-old frames and components was just his hobby. Around July this year, it became the brand new bike cafe with his marvelous collections on the wall as we saw! Collections such as come classic Colnago framesets, rare Campagnolo components, Cinelli Laser, and some old collections that most people have no idea how to find them. However, what surprised me was that the collections in the shop were just the tip of the iceberg…more than 80 pieces of great stuff are still in his pocket! Check out the fan page and Instagram for more details and great photos!

Ian’s Vivalo Special NJS.

Posted by: kris

Every now and then I get to snap a photos of a ride that’s a little more rare than usual. With its custom paint and a slew of NJS goodies to keep it legit Ian’s Vivalo easily fits the bill. Word is this was likely a prize awarded for a race win rather than something that actually saw the track making it that much more awesome. The colors on this are definitely what do it for me but  the “signed” seat stays and Five Gold saddle are right about there as well. Click through for a handful of images!
