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!
With a long weekend we decided some deep puddles and a steady onslaught of rain were more than overdue. As we work on the new direction of the site rides like these are crucial to narrowing things down. They also serve for a great day out ripping up some mud and water…
Knog is constantly at the drawing board dialing in new products or revising current ones to make them even better. The success of their Blinder series is no secret but the new Minis slim things down more than ever. The DOT, Niner and Chippy all boast bright LED setups in a array of colors and configurations. Peep the lineup below and be on the lookout for reviews once these bad boys hit our doorstep!
Named after it’s single LED the DOT keeps it simple yet pulls in extra style with four different faceplate colors.
Though he came onboard a couple months back, we’ve yet to post a set of Devin‘s G.O.A.T. track. After a 6th place finish at Monster Track last year this G.O.A.T. was ready and rollin’ on the streets of NYC. A break in the weather last night gave us reason be out and about here in Sac. Quick stop and a few photos later…
With plenty of Cinelli’s on the road here in Sacramento one brand you don’t see many of is Engine 11. I’m pretty sure Nate‘s Vortex here is only the second track frame from the Korean brand to hit the streets in the City of Trees. He’s got some proper parts finishing this bad boy out and those Ritchey carbon bat wings are something to envy for sure! Being in the dead of winter we tried to mix things up and hit the dryers at the local laundromat for a full set. Click through for the whole deal…
Our good friend Henry from New York City paid us a visit this past week and it certainly was a trip to remember.
What better way to take a break from the City that never sleeps then coming to the City of Trees?
We spent most of our days in Sacramento then ended his final days in San Francisco with some great downhills and beautiful beaches. You don’t see that everyday in NYC.
Safe travels to you Henry, I’ll see you in Brooklyn!
I met Kody over the weekend at the polo courts and had to grab a couple shots of his primo Dodici Gara. Though this is typically built as a track bike the tight geometry lends itself to polo as well. Hailed as a “do-it-all” frame he definitely dialed his in perfect for some mallet swinging. I forgot to snap the hydro disc brake and guard on the reverse so expect some more detailed shots of this bad boy sometime soon…
You may have caught a couple of these photos on social last week and you’ll surely be seeing more of my dude Devin as he’s the newest addition to the crew here on the site. After a good stint in New York he recently moved back to town and wasted no time getting together the first track only cyclocross race appropriately dubbed Tracklomento. He’s a beast on the bike and just as good behind the lens so expect him to be leaving some rad visuals here in the coming future. Look for a proper intro from him and a few more surprises on the site as we get ready to head into the new year!
After filming from summer ’til fall and finally having time to pick through things, I’ve come across quite a bit of content. Most of this comes from standby time or weekend rides but none the less fun days on the bike…here’s Joey working on some new stuff while we waited for some pickups.
