Tall Gary’s 2010 Cannondale Capo.

Posted by: kris

A handful of years back when urban cycling first started taking hold in Sacramento I met Tall Gary. He came out to most of the Effin’ Friday rides, rocked it on the polo court and was always down for a little cruise. He’s still spends most of his freetime when not poking holes in people out and about though his perhaps a step up from his Leader of yore. One look at Gary’s bike and you don’t have to think much on the origins of his nickname. Dude’s got some height on just about everyone and a sweet Cannondale Capo to match. Finished off with some nice Thompson bits to keep it murdered…aside from the necessary stickers job. Click through for a few more!

Jens Voigt and the #HourRecord.

Posted by: kris

The Hour Record is one of track cycling’s most noted titles and something well worth pedaling all out for 60 minutes. As the final piece to his pro career Jens Voigt will be attempting to beat the existing Hour Record on this Trek Factory machine. If anyone is going to do it this is the dude and this beast is his ride…find a way to watch this on Euro Sport. On a side note..THIS is a track bike.

New MASH Rides.

Posted by: kris

These have been all over but the two newest releases from MASH are too sick not to repost. First up is the ’15 Parallax looking too clean with the black and silver colorway. Digging this one over last years white and black for sure! More on that here

 

 

 

 

What I’m really into is this Columbus steely (a first for MASH) dreamt up by none other than Chas Christensen. His versatile style of riding takes him from deliveries in San Francisco to getting dirty on the cross course. Now it looks like he’s got the bike to match…more on this awesome ride here!

Smither’s Affinity Lo Pro.

Posted by: kris

Anytime I get a message from Michael I know he’s got to have something new cruise around on. Today it was this super clean Affinity Lo Pro build he just put the finished up a la carbon Reynolds track wheels. Had a few minutes to spare so I swung by Pedal Hard and we snuck in a few photos. Fun fact: some of the art on the surrounding wall is done by none other than Robert from PH. Click through for a few others and stay tuned ’til Smithers swoops up something else proper!

Crew Bike Co.

Posted by: kris

A new face on the urban cycling scene but surely one to be reckoned with is Crew Bike Co. The crew (pun intended) behind the brand has 20 years experience backing them up so you can bet they mean business. They’ve started things off with the District frame and a slew of accessories for your build. starting at just $149.99 these are going to be hard to beat if you’re building on the cheap! Peep the lookbook then hop over to check out what’s cookin’…

10-4 | Angel’s Leader Kagero.

Posted by: kris

Angel here goes through bikes faster than shoes yet everything he puts together is nothing short of on point. His most recent toy is this 2011 Kagero built up proper from the Dura Ace hubs to the well loved 75′s. Interested to see how it looks after a few months of working on it ’cause for a 4 year frame this thing is still sparkly…

MASH: 2015 Histogram.

Posted by: kris

MASH never disappoints when it comes to retouching their Histogram frame set year to year. For 2015 the team’s Garret Chow hit the nail on the head with a silver/black masked Cinelli logo on the down tube looking too damn clean. These are set to drop in October just under a grand at $950. Might seem pricey but for 7005 T6 Columbus dream machine it’ll be worth it…

RodaGira Arro.

Posted by: kris

Something new brewing form Portugal’s RodaGira and it’s looking mighty nice. The new Arro frame features Columbus Airplane tubing and judging by this teaser it’s going to be pretty on point. Stay tuned for more details and hit their facebook for more teases while you wait…

Tarckin’ it Back.

Posted by: kris

For some time now I’ve been wanting to build up a bike for work that’s a bit beefier but still quick enough to bounce around town on. Yesterday I realized I had the makings of said bike right in my basement. Now this Eighthinch Butcher lives again just this time ittle track and a little trick just like the ‘ol days. Fucking stoked on riding this beast around today…and glad I got some laundry done too.
