It was a tough morning and a heart-wrenching evening, so apologies for the late start. Truthfully, I’ve wanted to address this, but prefer to keep this website politically-neutral. So, all I’ll say is remember to grow community, be positive and lead by example. Love each other, and your planet. The road gets bumpy sometimes.

Royal H Cycles: The Road to Technology and the Prova Ti / C Road

Photos by Eric Baumann

It’s always fascinating to hear people’s perception of framebuilders and its alignment is usually something like: bearded dude, welding steel together in a garage. While that might be somewhat true, for brands like Royal H Cycles, embracing technology is one of the challenges of maintaining a successful company. Consumers like titanium and carbon, two materials that are easily joined together… With the right experience. Seven, Firefly and other Boston-area builders have mastered this art, making it possible for others to ride the road to technology.

Head over to Royal H Cycles’ blog to read about the Prova, a ti and carbon road bike.

Advocate Cycles: Hayduke IMBA Special Edition frame
Hayduke

The more companies we have backing IMBA and other organizations that work for trail stewardship, the better! Here’s the latest from Advocate Cycles:

“Advocate Cycles is the first bike brand to pledge 100% of after-tax profits to be donated to cycling advocacy efforts. To coincide with IMBA’s World Summit this week in Bentonville, AR, they have created a limited run of 30 frames from their Hayduke model, with custom art designed by Adam Turman that reflects a singletrack trail, and all the parts of the earth around it. These 30 frames will be sold through Advocate Cycle’s dealer and direct sales channels for $800. Each purchase will include a free 1-year membership to IMBA, with the entire purchase price going to IMBA’s Dig In Campaign.”

100 Copies: Tree of Joy Artist Proof
Tree_of_Joy_LR_Artist's_Proof

We can’t get these posters up on the site before they sell out. At least that was the case with the original prints of this design by 100 Copies. The Tree of Joy sold out so fast that they felt compelled to sell some artist proofs of the design. Head to 100 Copies now to see more details.

How Low Can You Go? …With this Stanridge Speed Track
StanridgeLowPro01

Built in the spirit of the Rossin Futura supplied to the USSR in 1988 by Rossin, this Stanridge Speed low pro track bike was recently completed for the private collection of a client from Texas. It was built with modified lugs, Columbus Gilco, custom shaped Columbus SL and Aromatic stays. The NOS Kevlar Poct track wheels with Ti hubs were manufactured in the USSR and provided just the right amount of wow factor for the completed build.

The completed project couldn’t have happened without the help of Psy from Petrichor Frames and Amy Danger, who supplied parts for these photos. While low pro bikes have since dwindled in UCI track events, their stance and history are something that can be appreciated by all cyclists. Thanks to Adam from Stanridge Speed for sending these photos over.
