Jeff’s All City Nature Boy Zona
Beautiful Bicycle: Jeff's All City Nature Boy Zona

If you grew up adoring the Ritchey P20 bikes and later found yourself running your own bicycle company, there’s a good chance you’d wanna adopt their livery. Jeff’s Nature Boy Zona prototype is an homage to the MTBs of the 1980′s and with a paint job like that, who can deny the randess?

I was way stoked on Jeff’s second place finish at the SoCalCross C race during the SSCXWC in LA, so I gave his bike a little bit of attention the next morning. He’s got all the GSC guys racing singlespeed on these bikes, so they’ve gotta be good! Word on the street is that this will be the paint job on the limited Zona this year, so stay tuned.

Shawn’s Ruckus Single Speed Cross
RuckusSSCX-9

So now that we’ve seen what Ruckus’ shop looks like, how about a look at one of the frames that Shawn from Ruckus has built.  This is his own single speed cross bike, laced with a rather healthy component group, a sick paint job and some of those Ruckus vibes. I love the tag line on the downtube, the painted ENVE components and the cross bash guard. You don’t see a whole lotta flat bar monster cross bikes but when you do, they’re drool-worthy.

IMG_2061

With Swobo under new ownership, they’ve taken their single speed and fixed gear line back towards the States. The Divine is their new city fixed gear, made in the USA and shown here, as a PAUL Component build for around $1,800 dollars. They’ll also be offering up a Taiwanese parts build for around $1,200 but who can Resist some PAUL parts? Expect these to hit your LBS’ shelves in 2013. I dig it. Replace that stem, bar and saddle and that’s a nice looking build.

Check out some more shots below!

Interbike 2012: Cinelli
Interbike 2012: Cinelli

Year after year, photographing Interbike goes from being an overwhelming and daunting task to me just knowing what people want to see. That and after I get over shooting in the horrible lighting, the yearly tradeshow’s bounty of Beautiful Bicycles just comes easy. This year, Cinelli packed a few punches, starting with the new single speed CX frame, designed by MASH. But the main surprise was the custom carbon Laser road. Wow.

Ritte Racing: Steel SSCX
SteelCXRitte

Yummy! This morning, while trying to knock back a few cold ones (that’s code for emails), I popped onto Facebook to see these three belt-drive beauties staring me down. I like Steel and I like cross bikes. Ritte’s ok too, I guess. Kidding aside, head to the Ritte FB to catch the entire set.
