Now about a decade old the Louis Garneau Pursuit frames are a a bit of a rarity out on the streets. Adam picked this one up a few months back and has been abusing it as much as possible from Mission Crit to tricks here in Sac. Having worked in a shop with Adam some years back I’ve seen his addiction to cycling grow to an appreciation for fine machines like this. A few more photos after the click and more to come from him here soon…
Had a chance to meet up with Mario on some recent standby to snap a few quick ones of his hooked up Super Pista. Some nice carbon FSA bit with the bars and cranks and a Razor seatpost to finish off keeping his baby light and nimble. Worth noting that he laced the front crow’s foot pattern himself and some people aren’t fans it did come out real good. Definitely seems top tube pads are back in as of late and I can’t say I’m mad about it…click through for a few more!
Taking inspiration from their own back yard State released a limited version of their Undefeated in a limited rattlesnake colorway. Snake skin print and a copper finish are accented by a the desert themed teal and purple design up front. These are limited 42 pieces and will slither off into oblivion soon…pop over to check ’em.
With plenty of summer sun still up for grabs State has added a couple new rides to their 4130 Core Line. The Ashton and Trooper 4.0 keep things on the cheap while still standing up to the abuse of the streets. Pop over to peep the whole line and see what’s new in the State shop…
It’s not often you see the BB17 Transfer rolling around in this colorway so after seeing this one I had to snag a few. My buddy Nate built this up for his girl Sierra and It’s definitely nicer than some of my past bikes. OmniZen is always a good choice and I’ll never get over this flat grey/gloss black paint…more after the click!
All-City adds yet another fine dirt machine to their lineup with the updated Space Horse Disc. Adding disc brakes for maximum stoppage in any weather and a more fitting 650b geo on smaller sizes this thing rips better than ever. These will be hitting dealers next month but in the meantime you can peep all the details here!
After honing their line with quality aluminum frames the 8Bar crew has released their first steel steed. The Neukln comes in double butted Reynolds 520 and will be a much more relaxed ride for cruising the streets or running to the bar/coffee shop. If you’re still looking for a bit of quickness you can swap out the lugged fork for their carbon legs and still keep it on the cheap…click through then jump here for more!
With cross season just around the corner I was beyond stoked when local heroes Squid Bikes offered up one of their Rattlecan rigs to give a go. Albeit a demo ride, this second version of their popular CX frame came built up with Force Hydro and a fine set of shoes by way of Portland’s Hi-Fi wheels. I’ve only had it about a week but with it’s glossy Spray.Bike finish and how well it eats dirt I’m already loving it. Much more on the way after spending some more time with it!
State Bicycle with a recent version of their popular Undefeated frame. The Undefeated II comes in a race ready complete in updated colors. Losing two pounds from it’s predecessor this is a deal at under $1000. Peep the completes and framesets here!
Aside from hand built frames you don’t often see custom color rides that stray from the otherwise stock paint. Nate‘s green Rush Hour Pro is a prime example of the potential a touch personal flavor can add to a build. Despite getting this bad boy already in the mean green, it’d be hard to argue that 2007 never looked so good! We met up for a handful of photos yesterday that are after the click and be sure to check him on the regular for more…
