#tbt | This is a Weekend.

Posted by: kris

With some changes on the horizon and a few things in the works I’ve been looking back at old content. Here’s one of my favorite old flicks from the early days of tricks on track bikes…more info on what’s coming in the next week or so!

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!

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!

Solstice Shred.

Posted by: kris

With the summer solstice comes the longest day of the year and the best day to be out riding late. Daniel, John and I took the camera and freestyle bikes out for a long evening of jumping on things. Came away with this quick double from Yound D at this popular bus stop ledge…seeing a bit more FGFS stuff in the near future!

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…

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…

Recyle. Reduce. Reuse.

Posted by: kris

It’s always great to see other friend’s bikes find new life in the hands of another. Greg picked up the Purple People Eater from Tyler a few weeks back and decked it out with some candy. Aside from the new dent on this BreakBrake17 Chase I’m digging the mix of new colors…
