Beautiful Bicycle: Dan’s Street Thrashed Stanridge Dec 5, 2012

Photo by Dan Chabanov

Give me a street-thrashed track bike over a wiped and polished wall hanger anyday. Dan’s 2012 Red Hook Crit Brooklyn-winning Stanridge Speed track bike has seen some time on the NYC streets. Love this photo Dan, dead rat and all.

    Good thing the top tube has some tape on it for the drops he’s not using anymore.  Otherwise it might get scratched.  :P

    • Bryan Smith

      because swapping out handlebars on the fly is something noone ever does…

  • Jared Jerome

    Too legit.

  • Daniel Moncada

    +10 points for the dead rat street cred.

    Why do I love track bikes with risers SO MUCH!!

  • Matt White

    kinda wish someone bought up his chain tension, i love when that happens.

    • John Watson

      You just did.

    • Davey Struthers

       loose chains way faster

    I just want to know what magic is keeping the bike vertical…

    • John Watson

      Rear tire on the wall.

      • jdubyargh

        That’s what I thought, but the sidewalk looked angle so I’m still trying to visually figure it out…..
