Blue Lug: Another Custom Rew10 Works SSCX
BlueLug

If there was an award each year for the best customized shop bikes, Blue Lug would win it. From Surly to Fairweather and now Rew10 Works, their shop bikes are so beautiful. Check out this blue Mondrian SSCX bike, complete with that disc front and canti rear setup… While we’re at it, check out these photos on the Blue Lug blog from what appears to be a Sim Works bike show / store opening of sorts.

Mavic_125ans_Project-66

Stoked to see these photo and that sick bike going on eBay for a good cause!

Hand-painted by Ritte founder Spencer Canon, this bike is truly one-of-a-kind. The seat mast is uncut in order to fit a wide range of potential owners of this piece of history. The Ritte x Mavic 125th Anniversary Vlaanderen is part of a collection of bikes designed and built to celebrate the 125th year that Mavic has been your trusted partner in cycling.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit World Bicycle Relief and their efforts to provide simple and sustainable bicycle transportation to entrepreneurs, healthcare workers and students across rural Africa through sustainable work-to-own and study-to-own programs. Until 12/31/14 all donations (including this auction and up to $1 million) will be matched thanks to generous gifts from a small group of anonymous donors.  To learn more about the impact of WBR please watch their new video.

Special thanks to Ritte, SRAM, Ritchey and The Pro’s Closet for making this bike and auction possible. All images provided by John Watson at ‘The Radavist’.”

Thank You Dudes of Hazzard, Thank You

Joe Barnes is doing it right. He could have looked back on his season and thought, “Hey, I finished on the podium at an Enduro World Series event and finished 9th overall in the series, I should get out a RED camera, select my favorite dub-step cuts, design some slick graphics, and make a facsimile of almost every other video out there at the moment to really push my brand.”

To the benefit of us all he didn’t, instead he continued to produce the Dudes of Hazzard, a mix of on bike schralping, off bike antics, and conceptual absurdity that takes itself just as seriously as anything based on professional recreation should. If this strikes your fancy don’t worry, there is a couple years worth of back catalogue to watch and the Dude’s don’t deviate.

Festka: New Zero Dazzle Road
IMG_1996_LR

Festka‘s work has always has an edge, from their first NAHBS bikes to their artist collaborations, the Czech builders have an eye for design as well as the ability to finely tune carbon fiber as a material. Continuing on their previous Dazzle-inspired road bikes is their new Zero frame.

Complete with Di2 and Rocket Wheels, the paint job on this one is much more profound and incorporates Festka’s new logo and font. It captures your attention but allows the bike to communicate differently depending on the side that you are viewing it from. It was originally designed for Michael, one of Festka owners.

With 1.5″ headset bearings, oversized tubing and a pressfit 30 bb shell, the Zero comes in at 1,300 grams. Not intended to be an ultralight frame, it was designed from oversized tubes and lugs to extend the lifespan of the bike.
