Here’s another great video from the 2014 Red Hook Crit in Brooklyn.
“Heavy rain brought a tense day leading up to this year’s Red Hook Crit. Threats of cancellation and worries of increased danger on the course were relieved when the race finally started, 2 hours before its scheduled time, with a modified course and a shortened number of laps. Nevertheless riders came out in full force to battle the elements and each other.
Now in it’s 7th year, what started out as an informal birthday party for organizer David Trimble has become an international event. Hundreds of competitors from over 20 different countries descend on the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook to race on brakeless fixed-gear track bikes, and this year in the rain. The race is fast and intense, with only the strongest and smartest of riders able to overcome the fury and seize the title.”
Lookin’ good Johnny!
With the 2014-15 cyclocross season ramping up and the House Industries / Richard Sachs show at Rapha NYC tomorrow, the guys at House just posted some exceptional photos of Brittlee Bowman’s team cross bike to up the ante.
My favorite part of this project: it’s a damn race bike! Not a showpiece. Well, tomorrow night it will be. Make sure you RSVP for the show at Rapha and see more details below.
I love seeing this Kryptonite Messenger Collection finally getting some exposure, especially with that cast of characters…
If you’re in NYC, then don’t miss out on the Bike Cult show!

This year, the Oregon Manifest changed gears into the Bike Design Project. The idea was simple: five cities, five builders and five design offices would propose, construct and test a bicycle that was born from the DNA of their city’s unique demands.
Chicago’s MNML x Method Bicycle is pictured above, see the rest below and head over to the Bike Design Project to cast your vote. Which one do you think is my favorite?
One of the world’s most infamous alleycats gets some love from some of Mexico City’s bike messengers in this trailer for a forthcoming full-length feature.
Look, this is way too artsy for me normally, but it’s been a long day and I’ve been there before. Granted, my lady didn’t spin away on a kick-ass made in the USA titanium cruiser!
