Lucas’ Unknown SL1.

Posted by: kris

Shortly after I finished my Unknown SL1 build my buddy Lucas pulled the trigger on his frameset. He’d been thinking about building one up for months and in the end he had a pretty damn solid bike. Sometimes it takes a while to get around to bike photos but today (with a little beer motivation) we got it done. Pretty stoked on how his overall build came out. Click through for a whole set of flicks…

My Uknown SL1.

Posted by: kris

It’s been some time since I’ve had a track bike built up proper with some nice parts. Late last year I got to talking with Vinny at Unknown and had this SL1 build in process. Months later after gathering parts to keep it legit it’s finally dialed in. Got some sweet deals on the 75′s, wheel build and other parts thanks to Robbie at Pedal Hard. Definitely rides like a dream and is now the go to for those long rides and  busy days at work. Full gallery after the jump!

Unknown SL1 Project (update).

Posted by: kris

Just about finished with my Unknown SL1 track bike. Still have to snag some spokes and get the matching wheel on here and perhaps some clipless pedals.  Here’s a rando phone shot from work today…official one once the new shoes are on. Shout out to Robbie at Pedal Hard for whipping this thing together like a mad man.

Welcome to Lompton: Edgar Willo Juarez.

Posted by: kris

I ran Edgar picking up a new frame from the Unkown warehouse when we were in Long Beach for Summer Fix. He got taken out by a car the night racing an alleycat. The dude fucking rides. I wish we saw more track stuff like this hitting the web.

Shoppin’: The Unknown Warehouse.

Posted by: kris

With a swarm of people coming in to town for Summer Fix there was definitely a need for some space for dudes to crash. Lucky for a lot of us Vincent of Unknown opened up the floor space in his warehouse for a bunch of us to crash. Despite getting in at 4:00 AM and hitting the road early to Venice Beach for the event it was a good time. While Gnarlos got his bike dialed  I snagged a few shots the Unknown U.S. home base. Some cool stuff in the shop and a rad setup in general in the loft like spot. Always rad to see where people spend their days grinding away and shouts to Vinny for letting us hang while we were down there! A few more randos after the click.
