Devin is making his way back to New York for this year’s Red Hook Brooklyn and will be repping Engine 11 and Lockedcog to the fullest. Not his for time to the Big Apple having worked as a messenger there this will be his first major crit. He recently got his Engine 11 Sprinter dialed in for the race so we hit Old Sacramento for a few quick photos to break it in. Click through for a few more flicks and be sure to check back for coverage from his NYC trip next month!

With our road trip to NAHBS kicking off tonight we thought it a good idea to share some of our favorites from last year’s coverage. Though many builder return each year no bikes are ever the same…here’s a few of our 2016 highlights from when the North American Handmade Bicycle Show was here Sacramento. Stay tuned for live and full recap coverage of this year’s event in Salt Lake City!

Tony‘s been putting in work learning tricks here in Sacramento for months and it recently paid off. He’s now on team Skream and is rolling around town on this Chameleon V2. The paint on this thing looks pretty insane in person and his build is solid for some trick track. Click through for a full set…

Every now and then I get to snap a photos of a ride that’s a little more rare than usual. With its custom paint and a slew of NJS goodies to keep it legit Ian’s Vivalo easily fits the bill. Word is this was likely a prize awarded for a race win rather than something that actually saw the track making it that much more awesome. The colors on this are definitely what do it for me but  the “signed” seat stays and Five Gold saddle are right about there as well. Click through for a handful of images!

With a long weekend we decided some deep puddles and a steady onslaught of rain were more than overdue. As we work on the new direction of the site rides like these are crucial to narrowing things down. They also serve for a great day out ripping up some mud and water…

Though he came onboard a couple months back, we’ve yet to post a set of Devin‘s G.O.A.T. track. After a 6th place finish at Monster Track last year this G.O.A.T. was ready and rollin’ on the streets of NYC. A break in the weather last night gave us reason be out and about here in Sac. Quick stop and a few photos later…

With plenty of Cinelli’s on the road here in Sacramento one brand you don’t see many of is Engine 11. I’m pretty sure Nate‘s Vortex here is only the second track frame from the Korean brand to hit the streets in the City of Trees. He’s got some proper parts finishing this bad boy out and those Ritchey carbon bat wings are something to envy for sure! Being in the dead of winter we tried to mix things up and hit the dryers at the local laundromat for a full set. Click through for the whole deal…

Our good friend Henry from New York City paid us a visit this past week and it certainly was a trip to remember.

 

What better way to take a break from the City that never sleeps then coming to the City of Trees?

 

We spent most of our days in Sacramento then ended his final days in San Francisco with some great downhills and beautiful beaches. You don’t see that everyday in NYC.

 

Safe travels to you Henry, I’ll see you in Brooklyn!

Stopped for a few quick ones with Joey on our last runs yesterday. Though Sacramento seems like a small city to most there are quit a few alleys a streets that offer a good backdrop for shots like these…

Adam Seavers and I just threw one of the best Tracklocross races to ever come to Sacramento. Such a great turnout for just a race scrapped together by a couple of kids trying to get their fixed gear community doing a bit more than just riding around spot to spot drinking and doing fixie tricks. (Even though we love fixie tricks)

 

Tracklomento consisted of a quarter mile dirt trail alongside the American river just right behind the Blue Diamond Almond factory. 10 Laps, 18 riders and a ton of shredding to beheld.  Besides all the fun dirt trails and puddles the racers had to bomb through on Track bikes, they also had to maneuver around a gnarly hobo camp towards the end of the course. After awhile the hobos weren’t too happy with us but by then the race was all finished up.

 

Our winners were: 1st Jean Padilla (TCB Courier), 2nd James Newman (Macaframa), and 3rd Jonathan Jones! It was a vicious battle between Jean and James, as James was first to shoot right through the hole shot and create a huge gap. According to the racers there was a huge crash that held back many competitors and pushed james newman even further away from the pack. The breakaway was held for majority of the race by James, but Jean didn’t let the distance break his focus of winning. Watching Jean hunt down James was marvelous sight as if i was watching a ferocious lion hunting its prey.
