Brother Cycles ’16 Collection.

Posted by: kris

The Bros at Brother Cycles recently got things in order for their Spring/Summer 2016 gear. Adding a few new frames and a handful of accessories this just might be their best collection yet. The Kepler Disc and Swift are looking dialed thought its the new R725 that really caught my eye. Always a soft spot for lugged frames and the pearlescent/sparkle paint options pop in the spring sun. Roll over to see the new bag of goodies and peep their  ’16 catalog here!

Tested | 24 Bottles From Italy

Posted by: Chris Yang

Few days ago I spent some time relaxing in the coffee shop and enjoying this beautiful water bottles! Big thanks to 24 Bottles and their distributor Bike The Moment in HK for sending their elegant urban bottles and world champion color wine rack! Established in 2013, 24 Bottles brings you the finest design that you can ever imagine on the water bottle. The designers saw the waste….people throwing disposables away all around the planet. They decided to change that situation and aimed to come out with the 18/8 stainless bottles that were sustainable, light (100g) and stylish!

 

Unlike most cycling water bottles we see, their bottles are beautiful, clean and easy to carry. It’s a simple water bottle that actually includes many functional details…the matte print makes it hard to leave any fingerprints, the wide lip of the bottle makes you easy to put some ice cubes inside. The main idea behind the company is to lower the waste and keep our planet clean and healthy! That’s also the idea behind 0.08kg on the bottle, which means the dispersal of 0.08kg of CO2 coming out from the production of a disposable 0.5l plastic bottle. Wine rack helps you tighten your bottle or even wine on your frame when commuting in the city. It’s flexible and durable so you don’t even have to worry about falling out. There are so many good things on their website and I just simply love the idea and the great design of this company. So stoked that Lockedcog can help them share some words out and we are certainly looking forward to seeing their upcoming products in the future!

State Bicycle Co. Tsunami

Posted by: Chris Yang

Few days ago I hung around the river bike trial to enjoy the great sunlight for shooting some pics on 24 bottles, which comes afterwards. But I’m always wanna shoot some on my daily durable ride.State Bicycle Co. Tsunami, which I got when I was in Sac. Three years now and it’s still carrying most of my amazing riding experiences!

Henry’s 2014 Histogram.

Posted by: kris

When it comes to nice track bikes there’s likely more Mash x Cinelli builds here in Sacramento than anything else. Henry just picked up this ’14 Histogram in what is probably my favorite colorway for these. He tossed on some Thompson goodies and finished it off proper with a Wound Up and 44RN ring. Definitely going big with the super wide flat bars on there but a mean street machine none the less! More after the click…

Tested | Knog Pop Duo Bike Light Set

Posted by: Chris Yang

It’s been a few months since I came back from my lovely second hometown Sacramento last year…met up with some new and old homies, especially the real dude behind Lockedcog, Kris Fay. I got this set of Knog Pop Duo Bike Lights from him but never really had an opportunity to have them shot! Special thanks to my friend again, Y.C Tang, for running our night time experiment!

 

The light itself, apparently, is not their brightest model in the category…but I think it’s actually good enough for urban riders like me. It comes with 5 different light modes and the visibility at distances is over 1000 meters. Like other lights of Knog, it comes with the quick release mounting so that you won’t even need 5 seconds to set them up! Overall, as far as I am concerned, this set of lights is great for the rider who commutes in the city. If you are going to climb some hills at night with low light and low visibility, I recommend you to get a higher level, which is the brighter one! Anyway, I’m still stoked to see the outcomes of these photos from my boy!

Recyle. Reduce. Reuse.

Posted by: kris

It’s always great to see other friend’s bikes find new life in the hands of another. Greg picked up the Purple People Eater from Tyler a few weeks back and decked it out with some candy. Aside from the new dent on this BreakBrake17 Chase I’m digging the mix of new colors…

Saadl | Carlo’s Skream Sprint V1.

Posted by: kris

A handful of rarities on this Skream Sprint that recently made it’s way onto Saadl. Hailing from Hong Kong, these Skream frames have been popping up all over built proper. Carlo’s here is rocking Rinpoch Hex cranks and Piston Wheels both of which are mostly unseen here stateside. Round it out with a handful of 3T goodies and this thing probably rolls smooth…more here!

Tested | Mayhem Fixed Products

Posted by: Chris Yang

Been admiring the design of products from Mayhem Fixed for some time and it’s really stoked that this time the dudes over there in Malaysia having me test out some of their proud products! If you are looking around their goodies on Instagram, I’m pretty sure that you would find some great stuff there due to their graphic design and the functionality of bags, pouches, etc. Hip Pouch is perfect and durable enough for urban rider like me to easily organize and carry some essentials! A layer inside allows you to put some delicate belongings such as business cards, stickers, etc. It comes with a belt loop like other pouches for you to fasten it safely. However, some pouches I used before are just flat ones when they’re empty. This one from Mayhem doesn’t lose its exterior look and form when you don’t wanna carry too much stuff!

 

 

 

Their Toolkit Bag is extraordinary too! The bag is made with Polyester canvas, which makes it super durable! What’s more, you can basically carry anything you want, ranging from small things like tire levers to big things such as pumps or wrenches. Just roll them up and you’re good to go like a mobile bike shop! In a nutshell, it’s really stoked to have them lace me up for my ride experience and I believe riders could have a one more good option to choose your pouches, bags, or accessories. It’s no doubt that they will have more awesome products in their future plans and I’m excited to see what comes next! If you’re interested in this brand…go to their Instagram to search more!!!

In Progress.

Posted by: kris

With the nice weather making a return it’s the perfect time to knock out a few projects that have been in the works. Spent the evening with Anthony and his new Phantom 4 getting aerial along the river for an upcoming State Bicycle Thunderbird piece. Always like getting a tad more creative for stuff like this…more on the way!
