To commemorate a forthcoming collaboration with Ritchey, Dustin Klein from Cadence took the time to personalize his new Swiss Cross frameset. I love seeing projects like this unfold, especially with companies like Cadence and Ritchey, both of which make exceptional products.
Personally, I think the Cadence x Ritchey stems look great and I can’t wait to see what else they’re cooking up!
Until then, check out the process and completed bike photos below!
Kawasaki green kinda grows on you over time, but for some reason, I doubt anyone would object to having one of the new Speedvagen Road Machines in their stable. Check out more madness at the Speedvagen Flickr, you’ll be green with… ok nevermind. Just go look at the rad photos.
Also, for anyone that’s interested, Speedvagen is selling off a few 2013 team cross bikes. Head over to the Speedbloggen for details.
As the story goes, Vanilla is left with this 49cm road frameset to sell. Now, I know a Vanilla is out of most people’s price range, but I can’t get over how nicely detailed they all are. The best part about bicycle photography is that there’s no charge to look!
Head over to Vanilla to see more details.

This one’s pretty rad! Brother Cycles did a great job on this commercial.
Fairdale’s new lineup is damn impressive and now, the entire line is available as framesets. Head over to the Fairdale blog to see their new offerings. My favorite is the Weekender Disc!
Factory 5 has refined their F550 frame and debuted the F550S. 1 1/2″ tubing, carbon fork and a slick new paint job are just a few of the upgrades. See more information at Factory 5!
For this year’s SSCXWC, Raleigh designed a limited edition cross frameset, complete with the Tamland dropouts (which look damn fine). Wait, a SSCX bike with vertical dropouts? What’s going on here? Well, as per the details here on this high-tech PDF, Raleigh is actually encouraging you to chop your derailleur hanger into a bottle opener. Which, I might add, is fucking amazing.
The best part is the price: $670! Scoop one up at the SSCXWC Philly’s webstore!
The Cinelli Mash Histogram has been immensely popular over the years but it wasn’t until this year’s model that I’ve personally been stoked on it. Polished aluminum with a graphic overlay always looks amazing. These framesets are now in stock at MASH, so if you’re in need of a new track frame, go check them out!
The guys at Heavy Pedal have creates something so strange and so weird that it just works! Introducing their Zephyr track frameset:
“We decided that we wanted to make a bike within the last year. At a time when everyone seems to be rushing to make the cheapest bike out of the cheapest materials for the wrong reasons— we decided to take a step back and do some research. What we gathered was our deep appreciation for NJS bikes, the Cannondale Track and also bike designers that were driven to stand out, like Landshark (none of which have any affiliation to us). So, when we decided that The Heavy Pedal would make a bike we took all three, great ideas into account. We introduce to you, Zephyr.”
