While a track bike with drops and a negative stem look great in photos, the reality is, at a certain point in one’s life, you just wanna cruise. If anyone knows about cruising, it’s Rivendell Cycles and that’s where Jesse picked up these Nitto Bosco Bullmoose bars for his Kinfolk track bike. Personally, I love it. I’m sure it’ll rub the purists the wrong way but they’re not the ones riding in style like this!
Let’s face it, the name Cinelli and Columbus is synonymous with Urban Cycling. Personally, I feel like they’ve done a lot to bring alleycats, track bikes and general radness to the industry. Especially with sponsorships and their collaboration with MASH over the years.
At this year’s Eurobike, Cinelli’s booth featured an extensive Columbus display, the Bootleg HOBO with Lucas Brunelle’s video and the newest from MASH. I even ran into Red Hook Crit Barcelona champion Fish while I was shooting photos. Check out more in the Gallery!
For each Red Hook Crit race, there is a prize bike and each year, the prize bikes just keep getting better! For example, here’s a look at the 2013 Red Hook Crit Barcelona Cinelli 824 track bike, which is arguably the best prize bike yet. Assembled by Barceloneta Bikes.
Some race (and lucky) racer is going to bring this one home with them this weekend!

This video is a lot of fun, with an unexpected ending. Don’t miss it!

I shoot a lot of bikes, so when I see a unique photo, I always take note. This one in particular came from Tracko last week and I never got around to re-posting it. Check out more great photos of this murdered-out GT track bike here!
Greg Falski‘s Stoked on Fixed Bikes 14 is now online for free. It features an interview with Juliet Elliot and the Grime coast to coast tour for Ride + Style.
Summer is here and that means road trips! Some just choose to ride their bikes:
“4 Days. Over 400 Miles.
11 people. Bike crews from NYC and Montréal. NYC: Chalet Magazine. MTL: The Starley Rover Society x Vélo iBike. Cyclists from Québec, France, England, Australia, Saskatchewan. Road bikes and Fixed Gear bikes, no brakes.
Start: La Colombe (SoHo, NYC).
Finish: Taverne Chez Normand (Plateau Mont-Royal, Montréal)”
I can’t wait to see more. That’s some beautiful countryside they rode through. The full-length premiered at the Jakalope Fest.
Here’s a video from State, shot on the weekend of the Wolfpack Hustle 2013 Civic Center Criterium. It’s even got some clips of Clary riding some street.
When I travel, I always have a camera on me and lately, it’s been a toss up between the Mamiya and the Leica. The only time I really carry my digital camera with me is if I am going to shoot a bike, or a shop, but in general, all my travel photos have been film. Which creates an overflow of randomness from each city I visit. Most of which don’t merit a post just by themselves. See some narrated photos of faces and places in the Gallery! Hey, if I don’t post them, they’ll sit on my hoard drive…
