Inspired by the classic aero, low-pro frames of the 70’s and 80’s, the newest from Stanridge Speed cycles embodies experimental design with modern tubing and profiles. As a nod to the Cinelli Laser and other frames of that era, the Highstreet EVO track will be a new addition to the Stanridge line for 2015.
Stanridge will be making twelve EVOs in a small production run and while they will lack the triple triangles, they will include the head tube gusset and wild paintjob, all made using the same fabrication processes used by Columbus and Cinelli during the Laser era. Those interested in purchasing one of these unique frames may contact Stanridge Speed directly.

When Mash first opened their storefront a few years back, it quickly became a clubhouse of sorts for the local riders. Group rides would meet up once or twice a week to explore the roads and trails of San Francisco. As quickly as the storefront became popular, the brand itself grew and the need for more space became apparent, sending Mike Martin on a hunt for a bigger store, with space for a design office.
Yesterday I swung through their new storefront and design offices in SF and hung out for a bit, soaking in all the random artifacts both from SF’s street racing culture and cycling’s most iconic brands… See more in the Gallery!
Here’s a great little video showcasing a sweet hill climb competition.

When we think of building a bike, there’s usually an aesthetic ideal and a finished product in mind. While many of the beautiful bicycles we pore over are works of perfection, the range of aesthetic ideals is as varied as the riders who put them together.
I’ve known Chunks since the early days of fixie freestyle. We used to get together on a weekly basis to do backwards circles and bunny hop converted road frames – sound familiar? That weekly gathering gave us the motivation to ride through winters, sharing laughs and forging friendships along the way.
At the time, the NJS track bike was an aesthetic ideal it seemed we all lusted for. The race-bred, yet street-tough style led many down the path of looseball hubs and B123s in less than optimal conditions. Some went even further, to a carefully curated, freshly imported Keirin frameset dripping in Nitto and Dura Ace.

Introducing the New Affinity Cycles branding, website and frame colors. Brooklyn’s Affinity Cycles has been gearing up for a bit of a relaunch, in between their riders winning the Red Hook Crit women’s field, various alleycats and even competing in the 6 Days.
To start things off officially, Affinity announces three new frame colors and pre-orders: McQueen Green Kissena, Lollipop Purple Lo Pro and the Asphalt Metropolitan. All the frames now have hand painted graphics and their Kissena is featuring an all new carbon fork with aluminum steerer. Each can be pre-ordered as a frameset, or various build specs, ranging from $1,100 up to $4,400 for ENVE.
Check out Affinity’s new website as well, with a side-scrolling gallery of images, representing the brand’s ideology that a street bike can also be a race bike.
