Tall Gary’s 2010 Cannondale Capo.

Posted by: kris

A handful of years back when urban cycling first started taking hold in Sacramento I met Tall Gary. He came out to most of the Effin’ Friday rides, rocked it on the polo court and was always down for a little cruise. He’s still spends most of his freetime when not poking holes in people out and about though his perhaps a step up from his Leader of yore. One look at Gary’s bike and you don’t have to think much on the origins of his nickname. Dude’s got some height on just about everyone and a sweet Cannondale Capo to match. Finished off with some nice Thompson bits to keep it murdered…aside from the necessary stickers job. Click through for a few more!

Get Weird.

Posted by: kris

Been super busy as of late but still getting out on the fixed freestyle bike as much as possible. After sitting on a handful of clips for a while I decided to finish up this fun earlier this week. A few of the homies in the mix and some fun from around town…

Smither’s Affinity Lo Pro.

Posted by: kris

Anytime I get a message from Michael I know he’s got to have something new cruise around on. Today it was this super clean Affinity Lo Pro build he just put the finished up a la carbon Reynolds track wheels. Had a few minutes to spare so I swung by Pedal Hard and we snuck in a few photos. Fun fact: some of the art on the surrounding wall is done by none other than Robert from PH. Click through for a few others and stay tuned ’til Smithers swoops up something else proper!

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…

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.

The Sticks.

Posted by: kris

Yesterday the girl and I went out for a cruise along the Delta out to the mostly empty town of Iselton. We like hitting up the the old ghost towns on the weekend but this was the first time for both f us out there on two wheels. The fileds of corn along the river were relaxing enough that we’ll be back for sure. Off for another ride…don’t think I’ve ridden this much over the weekend in a while!

Testing Testing: Eighthinch Drop and Riser Bars.

Posted by: kris

The old friends at Eighthinch sent out a couple of their newest bars to put through the ringer. Having just been released the new drop bar and small risers are a huge improvement over their past models. Since the my tarck build is made up of almost all Eighthinch goods the riser will be right at home while the drops will end up on a track build. Here’s a couple snaps from a grimy downtown alley…check back for more after these get broken in!

Wheelie Wednesday!

Posted by: kris

A little something for today’s hump day celebration to remind you that the weekend fun is coming in hot. Been having  some rear wheel fun freshening up on a bit of classic tarck goodness. Forgot how fun this stuff is so naturally I got a bit excited and snagged a few clips. Just some good times this week bouncing around town…
