For a brand on the up & up like Squid it doesn’t get much more exclusive than a collabo with street artist Goomba. With roots already in cans a la spray.bike, Squid is no stranger to the art of can control in making something great. Being a Sacramento local has nothing to do with the continued appreciation for the art of their cross bikes…click through for the whole set!

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!

With our road trip to NAHBS kicking off tonight we thought it a good idea to share some of our favorites from last year’s coverage. Though many builder return each year no bikes are ever the same…here’s a few of our 2016 highlights from when the North American Handmade Bicycle Show was here Sacramento. Stay tuned for live and full recap coverage of this year’s event in Salt Lake City!

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!

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…

After a couple weeks of backend coding it’s time to get things moving again with Angel’s fresh Parallax build. We’ve had a few of these on here but this one probably takes the cake with a bunch of ENVE goodies and some classic Reynolds carbon shoes. Click through for a full set and be on the lookout for more of this bad boy soon!
