Tales from the 2014 Red Hook Crit - Manual for Speed

Red Hook Crit is here! Happy face! Put on your happy face. Yes it’s going to be cold, wet and it’s going to suck. Yes, that happy face of yours is going to be sprayed by the fender-less track bike topping upwards of 30mph as you rip through slick corners. Yes, you’re going to fall. Hard. Over people. Yes, you will lose this race you’ve trained all year for.

But, there is good news. Two journalist dudes will be in your face with a camera, making you look cool. Or in this case, one journalist dude who kind of looks like me (Prolly). Or I kind of look like him, because technically, he was born first… Check out Manual For Speed’s Tales from the 2014 Red Hook Crit below!

Look, Manual for Speed isn’t exactly your everyday cycling news or photo site. They’ve clearly transcended that into the world of the weird. Daniel approached the 2014 Red Hook Crit with relatively new eyes and made the connection between it and Critical Mass. Before you get upset, he has some valid points…

You’ve really got to go to Manual for Speed to read the whole story.

Dan Chabanov and Manual for Speed: The Feed
manualforspeed_danchabanovnutrition-4

So there’s this new sports nutrition service called the Feed. It’s actually kind of genius. You subscribe to a series of “boxes” that contain everything from hydration, to nutrition and recovery supplements. Either purchase their selection, or make your own. Then, each month, a box shows up at your door.

To keep things weird, Manual for Speed did a photoshoot with Dan Chabanov, showcasing his Pro Athlete box. Head over to Manual for Speed to see the in-depth report.

Side note: Both Manual for Speed and myself have boxes on the Feed.

Manual for Speed and ICNY

Manual for Speed has taken their brand into design territory that most “cycling brands” wouldn’t touch and I love it!

“Manual for Speed partners up with ICNY Sport, again, on an evolution of the SPEED concept. Based on Op Art, the graphic treatment embeds the word SPEED in a series of contradicting lines and then repeats. Using reflective inks, the shirt and bandana provide visibility for the athlete, commuter or flash-using-selfie-taker.”

Pick up this exceptional selfie-worthy collaBRO at MFS!
