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.

This past weekend Victor Ouma hosted the biggest, baddest, most insane alleycat in the world and it just wrecked NYC streets once again. This year competitors traveled from all over the world to compete in this brakeless fixed gear street race.
only the brave and courages came out to race in freezing 35 degree weather with rain and snow throughout the race.

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!

 

LOW-- 1-1

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!

 

Stanridge 6-1
