The Heavy Pedal: Tempest Softshell.

Posted by: kris

The crew at The Heavy Pedal is ever expanding their line to feature rad stuff like the Tempest. Centered around a water resistant soft shell this bad boy will keep you warm while making sure you stay crispy. The media pocket will make sure you stay connected while reflective accents keep you safe. It’s been pouring the past couple weeks here in Sacramento so this looks like a must have for the daily grind. Swoop here!

Factory Five F5 Townie.

Posted by: kris

I like checking the Factory Five flickr every so often for their current customer builds like this one. In my opinion everyone should have a sweet townie rig to snag some beers or hit grocery store. The box rack and bars on this one are too proper!

#newkitday: The Heavy Pedal x Lockedcog.

Posted by: kris

Not long ago The Heavy Pedal was a cycling blog among the masses before morphing into street tested cycling brand. Over the past few years their rad clothing and attention to detail have made them household name among urban cyclists all around. the past month I’ve had some pretty exciting chats with the long time friends at THP and am stoked to be working with them in the coming year. I picked out a couple of my current favorites with the Cruising shirt (naturally) and the Harlequin. They’ve got a huge 2015 planned and I’m looking forward to hitting the pavement hard after the new year…stay tuned!

FBM Raconteur City Bikes.

Posted by: kris

A new way to shred the city brewing from the dudes at FBM. With what they’ve learned from building bombproof track/BMX rides they’re taking a crack at something a tad classier a la Raconteur. Whether you’re looking for a simple two speed or a more versatile eight you’re covered in both men’s and women’s styles. Rest assured the FBM crew took everything into account on these down to the branded cork bar ends. If you’re looking for something mellow to bounce around town on hop over to the Raconteur Kickstarter for more details!

Winter Grime.

Posted by: kris

Not sure what it is about the build up of winter’s nastiness that looks so good but I do love it. When it’s exceptionally wet out I like riding my old Cannondale for the daily runs and it sure gets a nice little makeover. Hard to beat a solid road bike for those typhoon days and dummy drivers who’ve never seen a rain cloud!

Inside Factory 5 Shanghai.

Posted by: kris

I had never seen the guts of Factory 5‘s Shanghai location and hot damn is it a sexy looking shop. Known worldwide for their frames and accessories the brand has also maintained a strong presence on the streets of China’s largest city. Their current digs look as much a design studio as a place to shop some of the finer brands with a beer in hand. With their brand work being done in house the space not only looks rad as hell but looks more than functional! Grabbed a few photo for after the click and there’s a handful more on the Factory 5 flickr

Winter Stichin’.

Posted by: kris

When the weather turns to shit I find myself starting on projects that more or less keep me indoors. After a long day delivering stuff in the rain a cold beer with friends or something like this sounds better than most anything. I can’t sew to save my life but I’ve wanted to toss some stuff on my Chrome Warsaw for some time. After a few years serving me well on the streets a little facelift seemed fitting…

#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!
