This is too good! The one and only Richard Sachs went down a list of 15 points in his latest blog post. You’ve gotta head over to read them, for gems like:
“Serial number accidentally banged in askew. Shit. It will look stupid. Fuck it. It’s a handmade bicycle frame that now has extra humanity. Note to self: add an Imperfection Is Perfection DVD to client’s parcel when bicycle is delivered.”
“Dang. The cat wanted to use this on gravel and a 25mm is the largest tire that will fit. I need to pay more attention. I’ll tell him I always use 25mm tires on gravel.” – “I can’t believe folks wait in line for this.” – “I can’t believe people pay me for this.” – “I
hope know the next one will be better.”
“I can’t believe folks wait in line and pay me for this.”

I don’t know why, I but I really love these photos that Dan shot at Richard Sach’s shop. I also love that Team RS works on their own bikes, the night before a weekend of racing to build team dynamic.

Well, you should! Head over to Peloton Magazine now to check out Dan’s US Pro CX circuit reportage.
Richard teased me with this yesterday but I had no idea it’d be available today! Available in an array of colors, this RS embossed Cinelli bartape was made in limited numbers, so head over to Richard Sachs to get a few rolls.
Am I crazy to think that “#ATMO” bar tape would also sell really well?
It’s almost cross season here in Austin, with the first race of the season coming this weekend, everyone’s dialing in their race rigs. So it goes without saying that everywhere you ride these days, you’re being bombarded with balleur bike builds. Take for example, Peter from Mellow Johnny’s new (to him) Richard Sachs team cross bike.
While I’m not sure of the exact year, knowing Richard’s internet presence, I’m sure he’ll be able to chime in – especially with that fork crown detail.
Peter went with Campagnolo Chorus 11 speed on this bike, with matching Zipp bar, stem and post, topping it off with Chris King R45 hubs, laced to HED Belgiums. When you photograph a Richard Sachs, you end up just hitting all of his logos and lug work, both of which were given meticulous presence by none other than Joe Bell himself.
I gotta say, riding bikes to shoot them is fun, but this was a pleasure…
Nice photo Dan!
You too can wow fans as you rip around dirty, dusty corners on a cross bike and while you’re most likely not riding a Richard Sachs team bike, at least you’ll look the part. Check out the House Industries-designed Richard Sachs Cyclocross kit pre-order for more information.
Richard Sachs and House Industries tried something new this year for their cyclocross team, Four bikes, four different hues and they all look amazing. Thanks to Dan Chabanov for sharing! See all four bikes below.

I pretty much wait all year to get this email. It’s short and simply reads;
“The bikes are ready. When can I expect you?”
See, when you race for Richard Sachs, you get a racing bike, not a training bike, so sometimes, you’ve gotta make due. Here’s one of Dan Chabanov‘s new House Industries-designed Sachs cross bikes in “training” mode.
