Map Cycles
Shop Visit: Map Cycles

Mitch from Map Cycles has moved to Chico, California from Portland and I managed to sneak into his shop for some quick lens love before shooting that gorgeous Disk-Ville Porteur. I’ll be real honest here. I wasn’t even going to post these photos. I didn’t have a lot of time to shoot and most of the shop was packed up already. But I really like how short and sweet this set is.

#GrandpasaurusRex

For those who have never seen Tracko before, I’m sorry. Tracko is no more. Now we’re stuck with Grandpasaurus Rex. I’m not so sure that’s necessarily a bad thing either. Check out a few more shots from my Recent Roll below.

Signal Cycles
Shop Visit: Signal Cycles

Nate Meschke and Matt Cardinal began Signal Cycles in 2007 and in that time, they’ve produced some absolutely beautiful bicycles. Not just commuters either. Recently, Matt’s Cross Bike made an appearance here and their Saltzman Road frames are lovely. Bottom line, if you’ve spent any time looking at Pacific Northwest builders, Signal has crossed your radar a few times. Matt was kind enough to meet with me on his day off, and let me shoot some photos in their space. Check out more below!

Yanco’s Waterford Track
Beautiful Bicycle: Yanco's Waterford Track

Yanco is one tough dude. He recently completed a 100 mile race. Which he ran and every time I’ve rode with him, he’s in the big ring the whole time. He’s also the fella behind all the Yancosaurus Rex products, like those slick Ramblin Rolls that no one can get their hands on… I shot a few photos of him and his Waterford track bike outside GSC while I was in LA. Check em out!

This man keeps Oakley moving with everything related to two-wheels. He’s the elusive Steve Blick and Rapha has a survey up on their site, featuring an interview with the man himself. Check it out here.

Velo Cult
Recent Roll: Velo Cult

If there’s one thing shooting with the Hasselblad has taught me it’s selection. Velo Cult‘s new location in Portland is far too massive to capture in a roll (or in this case, less than a half of a roll) but I feel like these photos pick up on some of the highlights. For those who want a more comprehensive Photoset, don’t fret, digital is on the way. It just so happened that the analog photos were done before the digital.

This shop needs no introduction but for those looking for a background, I do believe Velo Cult’s San Diego space was one of my first Shop Visits. Check the original photos out here.
