For a brad that typically doesn’t have a big showing at events like Red Hook It’s safe to say Specialized is bringing the heat this year. Calling on four of their designers take on customizing bikes an accessories for each city this is a project to follow. Check Mckenzie Sampson as he takes on stop #1 giving his collection the Brooklyn makeover…and be sure to see in in the rea at this weekend’s race!
Was busy working and trying to get that review up so I couldn’t get to the posts. All gravy now and who not start it with some stuff from Matt. He’s got some of the gnarliest bike control ever and you can see it in his riding. Soooo sick. 2:04 is one of my favorites obviously but there’s so much more good in here. Ender line is nuts. I dig.
Looks like much anticipated P.Fix is up on the Specialized site now. Kids have been waiting to get their grubby hands on these things for months. Seems to have a pushed back release date of early 2010 rather than this summer as promised. Regardless this thing will be worth the wait. Caught this on Slummy’s twitter…
* Butted, single-speed-specific, Reynolds 520 Cr-Mo frame with integrated headset, MID BB, and 3D-forged horizontal dropouts with integrated chain tensioner has perfectly dialed geos for fixed-gear freestyle
* P. Series butted and tapered Cr-Mo rigid fork is light, but strong enough to handle heavy abuse
* 36-spoke, double-walled, 26″ P. FIX wheelset and cartridge bearings are built to withstand endless abuse
* Ride dirt, park, or street on the Specialized Compound Control tires, with dual-compound traction, low rolling resistance, and rounded profile
* BMX style, 3-piece tubular, spline drive Cr-Mo crankset is strong and light to boost with confidence; singlespeed 25t chainring resists and delivers the clearance you need
* Press-in MID BB is light, durable, and easy to service
* SBC lightweight plastic platform pedals and retention straps
* New-school 720mm butted, heat-treated Cr-Mo handlebar w/drop-type front-load forged stem
* BMX-style flange grips with endplug
* One-piece, 10t cog is convertible between a fixed gear or freewheel setup
* Super-light and durable one-piece saddle/post combo can take a serious beating
Spotted this on the iMiNUSD bloggg…now im thinking that Specialized is likely trying to rake in on the NJS and similar vintage style bike popularity with the new langster…
1” threaded headset
“Classic” decal font
Dipped chain stays
Chrome track fork
…just needs some lugs.
buuut it does look halfway decent. Nice lines and good color. Would i pay money for one? No. Should you? Sure…if you dig it.
