Team Specialized Rocket Espresso Red Hook Crit Allez Allez Allez


Photos by Chris Riekert

The Red Hook Crit Brooklyn is coming this weekend, April 29th. Each year, the designers at Specialized look to outfit their racers with limited edition Allez track bikes. This year, the design was inspired by the process and design of the BMW art car series with a composition made by puzzle-pieced decals on top of the frame’s paint as a collaboration with Rocket Espresso, the team’s co-sponsor.

This process makes these uniquely-designed bikes production-ready, unlike previous versions of the RHC Allez race frames. If you’re looking to acquire one of these, the bad news is the track frames are for the athletes only, but there will be 300 road frames available in July. See the Allez track frames in action this weekend at the Red Hook Crit and check out more photos below. Thanks to Dylan Buffington for sending these over! (more…)

3rd Gens a Charm with the New Ibis Ripley

The OG Ripley was the first modern full suspension mountain bike I rode, years back. Having only ridden hardtails and rigid bikes before, the Ripley opened my eyes to just how fun full sus bikes can be. A lot has changed since then and while I’m still a dedicated hardtail rider, the new Ripley has piqued my interest. See more at Ibis and I can’t wait to shred one of these!

This crew knows how to party!

“During the Easter of 2017 we packed our camping gear on our mountainbikes and went to ride the Roslagsleden hiking trail in Sweden. There are several campsites and lodging is available throughout the trail but anyway we carried our own tents. Trees by the trail are marked with an orange color, so it is virtually impossible to get lost. Roslagsleden starts in Danderyd and finishes in Grisslehamn, and also passes through the town of Norrtälje where we had our finishing pizzas and headed back south.”
