Fifo Cycle for Cinelli: 2013 Bespoke Cycling Cap
Ben_side

Cinelli has teamed up with Fifo Cycle in Red Hook, Brooklyn to make a limited edition bespoke cycling cap for Spring/Summer 2013. Made from linen and cotton and screen printed and sewn by hand, this fully reversible hat takes it’s inspiration from 1960′s pop art.

“We wanted to stay true to the impact the Cinelli branding has had on cycling graphics and to harken back to their vintage design legacy. It has been an extremely exciting project for Fifo Cycle…just the kind of design challenge that gets us spinning in the studio! We used transparent water based inks on natural fabrics to give the hat a vintage feel and an Oxford stripe on the reverse side to keep it dapper and fresh!”
Fiona Ryan,
Lead Designer at Fifo Cycle

Product Details: A fully reversible lightweight cycling hat from Fifo Cycle. Handmade in New York with cotton and linen, and screen printed with water based ink.

One size fits most: 21″-24″

This is a very limited run (150 hats made in total) and each hat is numbered.

Pick it up here at Fifo Cycle!

Photos by Doug Dalrymple

I’m still bummed that I missed the 2013 Red Hook Crit. Mostly because I didn’t get to see a lot of my friends, including Kelli, who decided to race it this year. Affinity posted up these photos of her, taken during the Red Hook Crit weekend. Check out more at Affinity and keep checking in on The Job for more portraits!

Doug’s portrait photography is always refreshing when I come across it in my RSS. Here’s one of the forthcoming Cinelli track bikes, ridden by Alfred in NYC. That tapered head tube looks so mean! Keep an eye on The Job for more portraits and track bikes.

Emiliano Granado at the 2013 Red Hook Crit
Guest Gallery: Emiliano Granado at the 2013 Red Hook Crit

By now, everyone’s already seen the media overload that came from the 2013 Red Hook Crit. In typical Manual for Speed fashion, but atypical media coverage, Emiliano Granado went into the RHC looking to catch riders off guard for some flash photography rider and spectator portraits.

Guest Galleries have become a new favorite section of the site and I’m always stoked to get some exposures from Emiliano. See more in the gallery!
