Cycle Smithy Cinelli Laser Pursuit Track

The Urban Cycling Hall of Fame committee met last week in Chicago to select the first year’s inductees, as well as next year’s board. I still can’t believe I was in Chicago for two full days and only got to pedal around for an afternoon. But hey, work is work and sometimes I fly into a city without getting to fully emerse myself in it. There are dozens upon dozens of rad shops I wanted to check out but didn’t have time. Even though we only went to one shop, I have to say, I’m pretty stoked on visiting this one in particular.

Cycle Smithy has so much eye candy hanging from the walls and ceiling of their space. It’s overwhelming and was totally unexpected, mostly because I had never heard of the shop before. With the short amount of time we had there, I managed to shoot a few (quick) detail photos of this Cinelli Laser pursuit track. It’s a bit of an odd-bird build, with a mix of Italian and Japanese components (that seatpost) but I’m not complaining. Nor was FYXO. I wish it wasn’t raining so I could have taken it a block or so away to shoot better photos but this is what I got.

The Future of the Stanridge Speed Highstreet

Adam from Stanridge Speed has been working with an industrial designer on a new integrated stem head tube. These CNC’d front ends will be a throwback to low pros and pursuits of the 70′s and 80′s but made with modern materials. Throw on some Cinelli LA84′s and you’ve got a mean looking bike. This is only an illustration, but you get the idea. More to come! Thanks to Will Rei Design for the illustration.
