After waiting months to get his new wheel build going Joey got everything together and was stoked on some new shoes. Days later they were snagged off his bike outside his work with no way of tracking them down. Thankfully there are some good people out there willing to help a dude in need. Phil did up these custom hubs with some personalization just in case some idiot swipes these down the road. With a little help from Velo Trap he was back in on the road again…

North St. took three of their most popular bags back to the drawing board with two new fabrics. Their staple Pioneer joins the Flanders and Davis bags with X-Pac camo and smoke grey finishes. X-Pac is lighter and more water resistant than the proven Cordura, giving you the “cutting” edge. Check the newest from North St. Below and be on the lookout for full reviews to come!

 

X-Pac Pioneer:

 

“Made from waterproof X-33 X-Pac™ sailcloth, the limited X-Pac™ Camouflage edition is lightweight, rugged, and safe from the elements. Featuring the US Army Multicam camouflage pattern, this is the same great design as the original Pioneer, but made with lighter, stronger, waterproof fabric. X-Pac™ is made in Connecticut by Dimension Polyant.

After itching to get some rush hour photos on the 80 here in Sac a few us took to the onramp with our good friend Eazie. A couple passes and a ton of gridlock left us with a pretty rad little set. Having only done something like this a handful of times it proved a tad difficult to add in timing for the photos…but none the less worth it. Check Devin and Joey out then click through for a few more!

After the recent Oakley Crossrange meet we figured we should pick the brain of the man behind the glasses and put together a few quick ones for Chas. He was kind enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule to shoot us some pretty solid answers for our first interview in some time…click through for the whole deal!

1. For those who don’t know you, when and what got you started down the road on two wheels?

 

Chas: Hey what’s up my name is Chas, I live in San Francisco CA and try to generally shred life as hard as possible.  I have been riding bikes since I was a kid, to and from school, ripping trails on the weekends.  I got seriously into cycling in Portland, Oregon around 2004 when I got my first CX bike and started racing locally.  It was there that came across bike messengers, racing cyclocross races on their track bikes… literally a slippery slope, and after that I was hooked.

The road to Salt Lake City for NAHBS was a long one but Angel and I definitely packed in some fun along the way. From firework stands to tricks in the desert, if an opportunity for some rad photos popped up we jumped on it. Here’s a handful of shots from the roadside attractions we stopped at…

For bikes that take a bit more of a beating it’s often convenient to have a quick release seat clamp for a bit more maneuverability on the go. Whether its dropping you cyclocross seat for a for a bit more room on a downhill or getting your track bike more dialed for some bumps this is just what you need. Paul’s QR clamp is CNC machined, rocks an internal cam and looks as good as everything that comes off their production line. We have one these on the way so stay tuned for a full review…in the mean time swoop here!

Despite some debate on the “Best Track Bike” award it’s no secret that Andrew at LOW can build an amazing track bike. Weld skill as well as paint and geometry certainly put this year’s LOW ahead of the pack. All in all it was no surprise that this bad boy came out on top in the track category. On the low…it doesn’t get much better than this!

Many of our favorite track builders made their way into the show this year in teaming up with other stellar brands. Portland’s Hi-Fi wheels chose the always classy Stanridge stable to show off their wheels this year and the combo was too clutch. Having spent some months  on the 38mm (EP) wheels I can can vouch for how solid their product comes together. Worth noting how well the paint on this bad boy reacts to light as well as the new Vision cranks that seemed to be a staple at this year’s show. Click through for the full gallery!
