From here on out, any bike that goes off-road and could potentially find itself in the wilderness for an extended period of time with have a third bottle cage. They’re life savers.
Not to mention, I’d love to spend some “alone time” with this bike. See more at the Firefly Flickr!
Cross isn’t coming, it never left and as a versatile bike, it should remain in heavy use, year round. Bikes like the Alchemy Chiron look like they’d be worthy adversaries to a bit of heavy dirt thrashing.

Jonah Birns designed this insane Red Hook Criterium Cinelli Vigorelli prize bike for the RHC Barcelona. Personally, I think this is one of the best looking RHC bikes to date.
Check out a few more photos below, including bike assembly process shots by Barceloneta Bikes.

Damn, Kyle, that is a great photo. See more of this stunning track bike at Trackosaurus Rex!
People dug Kris’ explanation of his Huntsman cross, so I thought I’d share this as well. I know a lot of you have been interested in getting your first MTB, solely based on all the emails I receive asking for my opinions on the market’s offerings.
I’m not trying to tell you to go custom for your first MTB, because that doesn’t make sense at all, but you should head over to 44 Bikes and read Kris’ thoughts on why he rides what…
And yes, ride as many mountain bikes as you can – demo days, shop rentals, friend’s, etc – before you dive in head-first to a new rig!

Back in 2011, Andy from FYXO got to visit the workshop of Giovanni Pelizzoli, founder of Ciöcc and torch-bearer of the Pelizzoli brand. In an era when Ciöcc has forgotten its steel days, Giovanni continues to craft beautiful steel frames in the spirit of Italy’s golden era.
Andy did a great job documenting the space and faces inside Pelizzoli, so head over to FYXO for the full photoset.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been contacted by numerous builders in Europe and I gotta say, Repete Cycles‘ presentation caught my eye right off the bat. Head over to their Flickr for some mouth-watering, precision cycles and their website for more information. I dig that Columbus detail.
Things are picking back up here after a week off and what better way to start off the week with another insane bike from Firefly? Their motto “every bike is a show bike” really resonates with this one. See more at the Firefly Flickr!
German companies VANDEYK and Crema Cycles teamed up to design, develop and deploy a new range of ‘cross bikes simply dubbed the VDX. These Columbus Spirit and True Temper Platinum OX come in a full size run with a canti or disc option and personally, look really bad ass.
