Yesterday was Pedal Hard‘s “Do You Even?” race here in Sacramento. With a decent group of about 20 the dudes set out around 10:30 and started showing up as early as 1:00 after a 60 mile ride through Prairie City. The last sprint of the race was a bit hectic with #yungfixie Alex Gonzalez and Tyler from the shop having to go off course to avoid a car. After some deliberating it was decided that the course is the course end of story so a change in the order of the finish was tallied up. Shawn Remy came out on top and took home the Chrome Coveted jersey. Josue Acosta and Adam Beltz aka “Velogold” rounded out the podium.
1st: Shawn Remy
2nd: Josue Acosta
3: Adam Beltz
Taking photos this time of year can be difficult. After working all day there isn’t much in the way of good natural light for shooting something as nice as Shawn’s Stanridge Speed MKII. We tried from some photos one evening a couple weeks back just as the sun was dropping below the building.
We weren’t too stoked on the result but this thing is just too clean not to share at least a couple of them. Hopefully we can knock out some fresh ones this weekend and the Do You Even race!
Met up with Shawn Remy yesterday to shoot his awesome new Stanridge Speed track setup. He wasn’t quite finished putting the beast together so this is more of a preview as we’re going to get some proper daylight shots today. Anywho, Shawn’s been eagerly waiting his custom MKII since before the start of summer. Understandable when you’re getting the first bike of it’s kind plus a few little personal extras. Hand built in Columbus Ohio this looks fucking amazing with its NJS inspired flecked paint and reverse decal for that added touch. He went went all in on this buying everything new from Dura Ace hubs to fresh Omniums. Worth noting that the Columbus 2014 tubing used on this is the first to have the accompanying “Ohio” added to the brand sticker. Pretty rad. A low res gallery after the click and the full size set is right here…plus another set on its way!
Thanks to Shawn for linking up and Robbie at Pedal Hard for busting his ass last night to get this thing rolling.
