Photos and words by Kyle Kelley

This is what happens when you have the Jack Brown Blues…

These particular tires were bought by one of our customers for the Dirty Hundo earlier in the year. After the ride this customer decided he would never ride a bicycle on the dirt again. He sold his Cyclocross bike, but couldn’t let go of these magnificent tires. Next thing you know, he’s bought this ANT just to have a bicycle to put the tires on…

Royal H Cycles: Bad Larry SSCX Bike for Sale
RoyalH_SSCX

Yikes! This bike looks like a real ripper. Bryan from Royal H Cycles built up this exquisite singlespeed ‘cross bike for the Bike Cult show in NYC and it’s now available for sale. The price is $3500 as shown, with a 57cm seat tube and 56.5cm top tube (center to center). I think that’s a great price, especially for such a unique frame. I’m really loving the lugwork and paint detailing. See more at the Royal H Flickr.

Great work Bryan! If you’re interested, holler at Royal H Cycles.

Firefly Bicycles: The Trusty Third Bottle Cage
Firefly-third-01

From here on out, any bike that goes off-road and could potentially find itself in the wilderness for an extended period of time with have a third bottle cage. They’re life savers.

Not to mention, I’d love to spend some “alone time” with this bike. See more at the Firefly Flickr!

Alchemy Bicycles: Chiron Titanium Cross Bike
Alchemy_Cross-01

Cross isn’t coming, it never left and as a versatile bike, it should remain in heavy use, year round. Bikes like the Alchemy Chiron look like they’d be worthy adversaries to a bit of heavy dirt thrashing.

Kris from 44 Bikes on His Mountain Bike
44_bikes_MTB

People dug Kris’ explanation of his Huntsman cross, so I thought I’d share this as well. I know a lot of you have been interested in getting your first MTB, solely based on all the emails I receive asking for my opinions on the market’s offerings.

I’m not trying to tell you to go custom for your first MTB, because that doesn’t make sense at all, but you should head over to 44 Bikes and read Kris’ thoughts on why he rides what…

And yes, ride as many mountain bikes as you can – demo days, shop rentals, friend’s, etc – before you dive in head-first to a new rig!

Photo by Andy White

Back in 2011, Andy from FYXO got to visit the workshop of Giovanni Pelizzoli, founder of Ciöcc and torch-bearer of the Pelizzoli brand. In an era when Ciöcc has forgotten its steel days, Giovanni continues to craft beautiful steel frames in the spirit of Italy’s golden era.

Andy did a great job documenting the space and faces inside Pelizzoli, so head over to FYXO for the full photoset.
