To the Batmobile!

Posted by: kris

Not exactly sure the origin of these “batwing” carbon risers but I couldn’t pass up a chance to give them a go. My co-worker got them from Interbike some years back and just recently took them off his track bike. No matter their make they look pretty damn rad…click through for a closer look at these one piece bad boys!

Michael’s M-idea.

Posted by: kris

It’s not uncommon for people to pick up a second or third model of a frame when they were stoked on their first setup. However, it is pretty hard to do when you dealing with something as rare as the small Japanese label M-idea. This is Smither’s second go-around with the NJS brand and is by far my favorite of the two. He went above and beyond this time around snagging a matching 75/Zen combo to top everything off. The frame itself if gorgeous enough but as usual this kid knows how to put ‘em together. Click through for the full set and peep his last good idea here!

Weekend Vibes.

Been trying to squeeze the most out of the weekends lately with some good rides and good company. Made it out Saturday and Sunday to log some miles and sip some cold ones. Despite fixing four flats on our 80 mile loop yesterday we finished off the weekend all smiles…

NAHBS Sacramento 2016.

Posted by: kris

Now that we’re well into the new year I can’t help but be excited for the return of the North American Handmade Bicycle Show to Sacramento. It was here back in 2012 and was easily one of my favorite events ever attended. With plenty of people both builder and friends alike rolling into to the City of Trees it’s bound to be a blast. Stay tuned as the event draws near for more!

Greg’s BB17 Karma.

Greg and I had time today to meet up for a few quick photos in between runs. While he munched away on a burger I grabbed a few of his dialed Karma in yet another of the grimy Sacramento alleys. We didn’t have time for all the details so this is a bit of a teaser until the full dealio is ready!

#messlife | Soggy Streets.

Posted by: kris

It’s been raining pretty consistently here in Cap City the past couple weeks so a break in the weather was more than welcomed. With the streets still wet a few of us took to the streets after the days runs for a little fun. Stoked to get using the new GoPro and working on a little work day edit started. Here’s a screen of my dude Greg moving down J street…more soon!

Chris Yang’s LOW.

Posted by: kris

Chris Yang is no stranger to having his dialed Low featured in bike media yet with a chance to snap our resident blogger’s ride stateside it surely needed some more love. The night before he skipped town back to his home city of Taipei we met up for a few photos and some hangs at one of the local Sacramento spots. His set-up is just right for bringing back the tarck style in a time where criterium machines seem to rule the roost. I know I dig his build more than most and it’s well worth gettining a closer look. After you click through be sure to check his work outside of Lockedcog over on Track or Trick!

The Bike Valet.

Posted by: kris

There’s plenty of options out there for mounting your ride on the wall but few that are as elegant and effective as the Bike Valet. A design minded look keeps things classy while plenty of R&D ensures your baby is safe and sound aloft in your apartment. Though these are from ¬†right here in Sacramento and my co-worker used “acting” chops for the promo I’m certainly not biased! You can swoop the latest and greatest Bike Valet here.

Adam’s Heavy Pedal Axiom.

Posted by: kris

After a couple of weeks trying to catch photo’s of Adam‘s new Heavy Pedal rig the skies opened yesterday and we got down to business. With an upcoming part in Macaframa 2 he wanted something up to the abuse and his¬†Axiom sure fits the bill. Can’t go wrong pedaling it out on Omniums and the Reynolds wheels are looking flossy as ever. As filming gets underway soon this beast is primed and ready for what’s to come…click through for a handful more!
