Sierra’s BreakBrake17 Transfer.

Posted by: kris

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 | Space Horse Disc.

Posted by: kris

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!

8Bar Neukln.

Posted by: kris

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!

Testing Testing | Squid Rattlecan V2.

Posted by: kris

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!

Nate’s 2007 Raleigh Rush Hour Pro.

Posted by: kris

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…

Will’s Done Deal Polo.

Posted by: kris

As competition has gotten more serious so polo bikes have evolved into something far different than the track bikes with drops seen early on. Short court bike polo has led to a demand for more control, stronger parts and a generally more maneuverable rides. From custom disk brake forks to tighter geometries the bike polo bike of today is in a class all its own. Taking a closer look at Will’s ride on a recent night out here in Sacramento I had to grab a few photos of this beast. Made here in California by Jai of Done Deal this is easily one of the best bikes I’ve seen on the court!

Trappin’ | Super (pana)Sonic.

Posted by: kris

Even with all the eye candy parked at Velo Trap this bronze Panasonic demands attention the moment you walk in. The bright orange is impossible to miss and as shiny as the day it first hit the track. One of the many NJS frames at the trap this is still one of my favorites if for nothing more than the color…

Trappin’ | That Samson Sparkle.

Posted by: kris

With a proper cache of vintage track and road bikes the newly revamped Velo Trap here in Sacramento has become the go-to for urban cycling. Though they stock or can order just about anything, it’s these rare NJS  frames and other track goods that really help them stand out. Ill be popping by the next couple of weeks to share some of the jewels hanging in the shop and if you haven’t paid them a visit it would be well worth a peek! With a single flare fork crown and that green sparkle paint this Samson is just the tip of the iceberg…

Henry’s 2014 Histogram.

Posted by: kris

When it comes to nice track bikes there’s likely more Mash x Cinelli builds here in Sacramento than anything else. Henry just picked up this ’14 Histogram in what is probably my favorite colorway for these. He tossed on some Thompson goodies and finished it off proper with a Wound Up and 44RN ring. Definitely going big with the super wide flat bars on there but a mean street machine none the less! More after the click…
