Dustin Klein of Cadence Painted this Ritchey Swiss Cross
Swiss cross WIP

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!

Raleigh Bicycles: SSCXWC Philly Frameset

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!

Heavy Pedal: Zephyr Aluminum Low Pro Track Framesets
introducing-hp-zephyr-both

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.”
