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!
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…
After a couple weeks of backend coding it’s time to get things moving again with Angel’s fresh Parallax build. We’ve had a few of these on here but this one probably takes the cake with a bunch of ENVE goodies and some classic Reynolds carbon shoes. Click through for a full set and be on the lookout for more of this bad boy soon!
This is a build Greg has been eager to get going for a couple of months now and though I’ve only seen a couple in person his Mash Work came out primo. From the vintage (and rare) black Dura Ace track cranks to the his HED Belgium shoes this thing is meant to move. Surprising light for a steel frame set and real fun to ride…click through for a few more!
Now about a decade old the Louis Garneau Pursuit frames are a a bit of a rarity out on the streets. Adam picked this one up a few months back and has been abusing it as much as possible from Mission Crit to tricks here in Sac. Having worked in a shop with Adam some years back I’ve seen his addiction to cycling grow to an appreciation for fine machines like this. A few more photos after the click and more to come from him here soon…
Had a chance to meet up with Mario on some recent standby to snap a few quick ones of his hooked up Super Pista. Some nice carbon FSA bit with the bars and cranks and a Razor seatpost to finish off keeping his baby light and nimble. Worth noting that he laced the front crow’s foot pattern himself and some people aren’t fans it did come out real good. Definitely seems top tube pads are back in as of late and I can’t say I’m mad about it…click through for a few more!
It’s not often you see the BB17 Transfer rolling around in this colorway so after seeing this one I had to snag a few. My buddy Nate built this up for his girl Sierra and It’s definitely nicer than some of my past bikes. OmniZen is always a good choice and I’ll never get over this flat grey/gloss black paint…more after the click!
As competition has gotten more serious so polo bikes have evolved into something far different than the track bikes with drops seen early on. Short court bike polo has led to a demand for more control, stronger parts and a generally more maneuverable rides. From custom disk brake forks to tighter geometries the bike polo bike of today is in a class all its own. Taking a closer look at Will’s ride on a recent night out here in Sacramento I had to grab a few photos of this beast. Made here in California by Jai of Done Deal this is easily one of the best bikes I’ve seen on the court!
The pink/grey Vigorelli has become an urban track staple since dropping abck in 2013. My dude Angel built up this one up for his girl Maylee and this little beaut it’s definitely done up proper. Zen’s are a classic and the simple yet solid Dura Ace to Velocity shoes are bound to stay solid. Pop through for a few more from our trip down by the river earlier this week!
I’ve been wanting to get this going for a bit now and am excited to present the first #featurefriday with Fabio‘s Dodici Gara here. He rides this primo aluminum build on the streets Milan, Italy and beyond. The Omnilattice setup has become a staple and you can’t go wrong with some wide carbon risers to keep things comfy. Digging the winter backdrop he chose for these shots and can’t wait to keep this series going. Click through for a few more and feel free to drop me a line to have your bike featured for a #featurefriday!
