Crew Bike Co.

Posted by: kris

A new face on the urban cycling scene but surely one to be reckoned with is Crew Bike Co. The crew (pun intended) behind the brand has 20 years experience backing them up so you can bet they mean business. They’ve started things off with the District frame and a slew of accessories for your build. starting at just $149.99 these are going to be hard to beat if you’re building on the cheap! Peep the lookbook then hop over to check out what’s cookin’…

WTTVC | Kits Go Live!

Posted by: kris

On the opposite spectrum of the Wheel Talk family is the two wheel powerhouse WTTVC. Over the past year or so the track/road/cross crew has been hitting races and and taking podium spots on the regular. Beyond the medals the best part about the team has to be their work hard play hard attitudes that lead to awesomeness like this. The new “Endless Summer” pieces are too clutch with a solid early 90′s look paired with modern tech…all available for you to rock right here!

10-4 | Angel’s Leader Kagero.

Posted by: kris

Angel here goes through bikes faster than shoes yet everything he puts together is nothing short of on point. His most recent toy is this 2011 Kagero built up proper from the Dura Ace hubs to the well loved 75′s. Interested to see how it looks after a few months of working on it ’cause for a 4 year frame this thing is still sparkly…

100 Copies #24 : The Unforbidden Cyclist.

Posted by: kris

Another rad piece form the 100 Copies collection this time inspired by China’s Forbidden City. 11 different treads went into the fine detail on this 37×12 print including one from China’s Flying Pigeon brand…the most sold “vehicles” in the world. Half of these tire track prints are already gone so swoop here before it’s too late!

MASH: 2015 Histogram.

Posted by: kris

MASH never disappoints when it comes to retouching their Histogram frame set year to year. For 2015 the team’s Garret Chow hit the nail on the head with a silver/black masked Cinelli logo on the down tube looking too damn clean. These are set to drop in October just under a grand at $950. Might seem pricey but for 7005 T6 Columbus dream machine it’ll be worth it…

#nationaldogday: My Dude.

Posted by: kris

This website is about bikes. Sometimes animals ride bikes. In honor of #nationaldogday here’s my dog Wicket enjoying a couple rides. This dude is always down whether it’s a long ride down Highway 1 or a short trip to the store…he’s always down for a sit in the bag while I muscle out some distance.

Tested: Knog Party Combo Lock.

Posted by: kris

A bit back the friends at Knog sent through their lightweight Party Combo for a little street Testing. After a using around town for quick beer runs and a bit of extra security I’d say it deserves a bit of a rest. Below are a few things I liked and fewer that I didn’t as well as a handful of photos to peep. Having waited a bit on this review I wanted to have some fun with the flicks so I took to downtown after work yesterday to catch some of the buzz…

 

 

 

LOOK:

 

This cable lock doesn’t suck. That should be enough of a review right there because more often than not they do. Too long a cable or too crappy a lock makes you nervous to let them be seen with your bike let alone on it. The Party Combo from Knog tightens it up into a nice, simple looking design that you won’t mind carrying around. Personally I would have gone with black or one of the other 7 colors available for however “bright” your taste might be.

Heavy Pedal x Mixed Works Restock.

Posted by: kris

The dudes at The Heavy Pedal just got a re-up of their popular collaboration with bag company Mixed Works. These initially dropped a while back and were gone in the blink of an eye. Now you’ve got a chance to swoop the Eagle backpack and the rest of the line right here!

Hiplok DC and Gold.

Posted by: kris

When you’re trying to survive in the bike security game you’ve got to be innovative and Hiplok knows this well. Expanding on their line of locks with two new takes on past releases the Gold and DC are looking pretty sweet.  I personally use either the D or 1.5 locks from the brand daily for work as a messenger and have yet to be disappointed. The newest offerings add a quick buckling system to their 10mm chain lock and a 5mm steel cable to their u-lock style D. Look for more on these once some samples arrive and in the meantime read up here!
