Recent Roll: Levi Gold

This is Levi Gold, Benny Gold‘s French bulldog. He’s kind of a big deal to the internet and he knows how to lay on the puppy points when there’s a track bike around… While I finish cataloging all my film from my trip to SF, you can stare into his big sappy eyes as he basks in the sunny spot at the Benny Gold warehouse.

Rider Portrait: Lindsey and Bucket

Yesterday after I got done shooting one of Chas’ bikes, we were about to roll home when Lindsey stopped at the top of a hill and I snapped this photo. I really miss having a dog! More on these two later…

Chas’ Mash Cinelli Prototype Track
Beautiful Bicycle: Chas' Mash Cinelli Prototype

Two years ago, Chas and Walton from MASH sat down with the designers at Cinelli in Italy to work on the next track frame. After years of riding track bikes both on the street and in races, the two of these athletes knew exactly what they wanted. The end product was something unlike any track bike Cinelli has made before: a mixture of new technology with performance and practicality in mind.

Last year at Interbike, Cinelli handed over two of the prototypes, which were spraypainted with Montana outside Mash’s flagship store in SF (in fact, you can still see blue and green overspray all over the sidewalk). Chas’ green track bike has traveled the world and seen its share of the fast n loose riding lifestyle. It’s been in multiple Red Hook Crits and bombed the streets of SF and NYC alike.

The most noticeable difference in this frame, versus the older MASH frames include a tapered fork and head tube for added stiffness and proprietary hydroformed Columbus tubing. A level top tube and traditional track geometry add a confident stance to this bike’s profile. In short: the Mash team is very happy with their work and with new paint samples on the way, I had to shoot photos of this bike while it was still built up….

Many thanks to Chas and Lindsey for recommending the sunset bike shoot location and Bucket for showing his appreciation.

My 4th of July
4th of July

Like everyone else today, I can barely function. Each year, the 4th of July proves to be a great time. I’ve yet to blow off any digits, or shoot my eye out and so far, the only damage has been to my bank account. I spent the afternoon at our local digs, the Yellow Jacket Social Club and enjoyed the festivities. Dogs, dudes, babes, beer, bourbon and a lotta randomness ensued. Check it out below and if you have any cool photos from your afternoon, share them in the comments.

LA Randomness 02
LA Randomness

Well, after two weeks in sunny SoCal, I’m back in even sunnier and hotter Austin. I cannot express with words how much fun I had this round in LA. We rode and rode and rode, all the while I tried to document the daily happenings going on around me. There’s much more to come but these photos didn’t really fit in with any of the future photosets, so I’m dumping them into a Randomness gallery. Enjoy!

If you have questions about any of these photos, hit me up in the comments. And thanks to everyone who made this trip such a blast for Lauren and me.

Have a Great Weekend

Sorry for not posting this afternoon, I was out on my bike(s) with friends and didn’t get a chance to draft up anything. At any rate, it’s been spring here in Austin for weeks. Everyone’s out on their bikes and the Bluebonnets still have their bloom. A lot of new things are popping up this year with Fairdale as well…

This time of year is amazing in Texas. Hopefully the weather’s nice in your town. Get out and ride, weather permitting, this weekend!
