Golden Saddle Rides: Yeti Pro F.R.O (For Rockin’ Only!)
Photos and words by Kyle Kelley

This bike is pretty damn old and you’d think that the stem and fork were too, but they’re not. Anybody wanna try and guess who built them?

Everything else on the bike is very period correct, my favorite part is the NOS Onza Racing Porcs though. Those guys are probably the best looking tires ever made!

The owner of this bike is probably one of the funnest customers to work with here at Golden Saddle Cyclery, because all the bikes we build for him are BANGERS!

Man, there have been some great videos as of late!

“Tracko is for the children! Starring Andrew, Alberto, and Dermy. Watch Kyle take these kids through his old stomping grounds.”

Nice one Ace!

Itchy and Her Dosnoventa Track Bike

After the Mavic 125ANS photoshoot and press weekend, I kicked around Los Angeles for a few days, where I met Itchy, who was visiting town for a few days. She was riding this neon pink Dosnoventa track machine, which Kyle had just photographed for Tracko.

Well, who knows when Kyle is going to post those photos, so maybe me posting this will motivate him to.

Check out a few more below and it was a pleasure to meet you Itchy!

Record Shops Supporting Bike Shops in Los Angeles

Here’s some more of that community building the dudes at Golden Saddle were talking about in that last video. Amoeba Hollywood will have two new GSC shirts for sale tomorrow.

“Bike riding is awesome: no released pollutants, one less car on the road, it’s good for your community and good for YOU. Amoeba Hollywood and Amoeba San Francisco are celebrating bike culture in partnership with the Bicycle Coalitions of L.A. & S.F. and want you to join us Sunday, August 17 12-5pm. Free treats, DJs, and a chance to win cool bike gear and prizes—all while raising funds for the Coalitions!”

Check out more at Amoeba and thanks for the heads, Tracko!

Seriously, support your local record shop, buy vinyl, not MP3s!

… of how much #LASucksForCycling. Head over to Team Dream for a few more 35mm jammers.

I miss that town all the time. Actually, I just miss the West Coast, period. Luckily, this weekend, Lauren and I are leaving for a proper vacation. We’ve got a week to drive from Portland to Los Angeles (which isn’t nearly enough time) and I’ll be shooting vacation photos the whole way.

Hopefully, if you have never been down HWY 1, the next week will make you want to do so.

How’s everyone’s summer going?
