Nice vibes in this one from Pici Bici.
First debuted at Interbike, State Bicycle Co’s new singlespeed off-road division is now available for pre-order with a mid-November delivery. Their affordable cross bikes are available with a Reynolds wheel upgrade – which is almost as much as the bike itself, or as frames to be built us to your specification. Blastin into the fat marketplace are two singlespeed fat bikes, one coming in under $500 with an admittedly fun coaster brake setup and another with disc brakes for under $700.
See the full State Bicycle Co Off-Road Division below.
Small-time frame builders can deviate from their normal M.O. and create more precision machines with very little issue, which is why I think framebuilders will forever offer a better fit to your specific cycling needs.
Agendas aside, this Shand Cycles Stooshie cyclocross race machine is based off a Stoater platform, with a few geometric tweaks, tuned in for CX races… oh and camo never hurt! See more at the Shand Flickr!
Hey Minneapolis, I love you. In fact, your river bottoms are a lot of fun. If you’re a local, head over to this Vimeo page for details as to how you can help preserve one of the best places to ride bikes in America’s #1 city for cycling…
Thanks for sharing Jeff!
This is a great photo and one that speaks a lot about cross racing, to me anyway. See more of Tenspeed Hero’s random photos from this year’s cross photos at the TSH Blog.
If you were there, then this will more than likely induce a Pavlovian-response and if you weren’t, it’ll make you wish you were. Here’s the first video I’ve seen from the 2014 SSCXWC!

I don’t know why, I but I really love these photos that Dan shot at Richard Sach’s shop. I also love that Team RS works on their own bikes, the night before a weekend of racing to build team dynamic.

Keeping up with current demand, State Bicycle Co has launched a new off-road division, including a fatbike and singlspeed cross bike:
“Say hello to the newest and most tenacious members of the State Bicycle Co. family: The Off-Road Division. This premiere line of Cyclo-Cross Bicycles and Fat Bikes were consciously built to take you as far & wide as your spirit of adventure can go.
We took our Team Riders out to some of the most singular landforms of the West Coast and Southwest, Cyclo-Cross and Fat Bikes in tow, and sent them barreling into terrain that gave us genuine pause. Three states, eight locales, more than a few attempted daredevil stunts, and a broken arm later, we realized something: it doesn’t get much better than adventuring through the unbeaten path with your friends.”
More information to come from State.
Leave your city with me and let’s travel to Valkenburg for the first race of the UCI World Cup and episode three of CX Hairs‘ excellent SVENNESS series!
For 2015, Ritte is doing something a little different with their Crossberg this year with a revamped geometry and yes, disc brakes. All wrapped up in a very Ritte paint job, ready to rip.
