Michael’s M-idea.

Posted by: kris

It’s not uncommon for people to pick up a second or third model of a frame when they were stoked on their first setup. However, it is pretty hard to do when you dealing with something as rare as the small Japanese label M-idea. This is Smither’s second go-around with the NJS brand and is by far my favorite of the two. He went above and beyond this time around snagging a matching 75/Zen combo to top everything off. The frame itself if gorgeous enough but as usual this kid knows how to put ‘em together. Click through for the full set and peep his last good idea here!

Radavist: Top 2014 Beautiful Bicycles.

Posted by: kris

John and the dudes at the Radavist have released the much anticipated 2014 Beautiful Bicycles list and there’s some amazing machines that made the cut. Most of what popped up on the list was prepped for touring or hitting the mud but there was also this fine piece of track booty that snuck in there. There’s always something about a track bike with a nice rack and Chunk’s Nagasawa is tits! Peep the year’s best here!

#lostshots: Smither’s M-idea.

Posted by: kris

When I shoot people’s rigs I typically end up with a handful of photos that don’t work out for one reason or another. This is one such flick of the M-idea the homie Smither’s rolled on briefly. Photos at this spot came out a tad blurry so they were scrapped and left for dead on my computer until this week. Despite the focus being a tad off this is the shot I really wanted when we went out…and this bike is too fucking sweet not post!

Smither’s M-idea.

Posted by: kris

Friday was a pretty wild day for me but I managed to sneak in a few photos of the young buck Smither’s newest creation. This kid has gone through more bikes this year than most of us have owned yet they always end come out pretty damn proper. Not too often you see and M-idea on the street and this Ebay score came in looking like it came straight off a 90′s shop wall. Some proper track track parts plus a hell of a deal on the ZIPPs and he’s got one nutty NJS build. Click through for a handful more of this purdy thang….

Tom Kirsche: Vivalo 8630.

Posted by: kris

Haven’t seen a dope Vivalo in a while now but this Special looks pretty clean. Spotted it on Tom Kirsche’s flicky where it says its for sale. Track bikes seem to be coming on strong again…wonder if we’ll see another NJS phase this time arounddd.

Sacto Locals: Tom’s Watanabe NJS.

Posted by: kris

I rode over to Pedal Hard yesterday after work to chill for a bit and while I was there decided to shoot some photos. This is Tom’s of Pedal Hard’s Watanabe NJS build that he’s been rolling on for a bit. Lots of goodies on it including those Cane Creek wheels that I’ve wanted for years. Those hubs are just too sick. It was hard to shoot these inside a bike shop, at night and without a tripod but some of the shots came out alright. This bike is just too rad not to share…those dudes have a gold mine of parts and bikes you could spend days looking at in there. More to come soon.

SMG Track.

Posted by: kris

Always stoked to come across some nice track stuff. This SMG track from blue.beanie’s flicky stream looks awesome. Hop over there for some more detailed shots of the Suntour track group it has on it and those sick seat tube welds.

Frederick Lee’s Bridgestone.

Posted by: kris

Ive always had a thing for Bridgestone frames and I’m not entirely sure why. Road or track they always come out looking way clean. Check Frederick’s build right here that is looking real nice. I’m drooling over those wheels with the Suntour hubs too…favorites of the NJS stuff! Real clean dude and I bet it rides super smooth.
