Inspired by the paint from old Dacorrdi frames, Adam from Stanridge Speed made sure Jen Malik’s race bikes look great before the mud. See more photos of these bikes at the Stanridge Speed Flickr.
Inspired by the classic aero, low-pro frames of the 70’s and 80’s, the newest from Stanridge Speed cycles embodies experimental design with modern tubing and profiles. As a nod to the Cinelli Laser and other frames of that era, the Highstreet EVO track will be a new addition to the Stanridge line for 2015.
Stanridge will be making twelve EVOs in a small production run and while they will lack the triple triangles, they will include the head tube gusset and wild paintjob, all made using the same fabrication processes used by Columbus and Cinelli during the Laser era. Those interested in purchasing one of these unique frames may contact Stanridge Speed directly.
Everyone is overdosing on ‘cross right now. It’s like we’re all sitting at our desks, gyrating, awaiting the cowbells and handups. Fueling the fire is Crafted Magazine, as they interview Adam from Stanridge and Marty from Geekhouse at KMC Providence Cyclocross…
We’ve already seen the first half of Stanridge Speed’s track crit team, now here’s the second, Katie Arnold.
Hopefully I can track down Katie before cross vegas to shoot this bike because it looks great. Thanks to Adam from Stanridge for sending this one over…
This came out so rad!
“Ohio based Stanridge Cycles is excited to announce the arrival of Katie Arnold to the team as it heads into it’s 3rd season competing in the Red Hook Crit Series. Arnold will join previous Red Hook winner and Cat 1/Pro, Evan Murphy at the start line in NYC this weekend.
This years Red Hook Crit program began in October of last year while in Shoreditch, London visiting Deathspray Custom. Ben Eine’s work on Mother London caught the eye of Stanridge Cycles Owner Adam Eldridge. After returning to the states Ben was contacted and it was on. Ben hand painted both frames for the event.
This year Enve Composites Paul Components and Vittoria Tires have joined as new team sponsors while Endo Custom remains as the jersey maker. Riders will use a variation of the iconic Stanridge HSP MkII (pictured) during the series to showcase a team that competes at the highest level of fixed crit racing.
“I enjoy creating bikes for this series. Having these frames used under race conditions means much more to me than hanging them on display at a bike show. They’ll get beat up, scratched and used which is perfectly fine with me”. – Adam Eldridge, Owner of Stanridge Cycles.”
Man, this is wild!
“Stanridge Cycles is excited to announce our collaboration with en EINE for the Red Hook Crit this year. EINE is a world renowned graffiti artist who has collaborated with Banksy and has work hanging in the White House. Ben will be hand painting the two iconic Stanridge High Street frames that will be raced during this years Red Hook series.
The custom bikes will be piloted by elite cyclocross racer Katie Arnold, and previous Red Hook winner Evan Murphy. Look for more from Stanridge as the bikes are done and race day approaches.”
I’m usually pretty good at keeping my film in check. Especially on my Mamiya 7ii. It literally costs me $2 every time that shutter button is pressed. So you can imagine my regret when I went to load a new roll of film after shooting some photos at Standridge Speed, to find my camera was loaded with Kodak TMAX 400 black and white.
I had just photographed one of the raddest bikes, with the brightest and most elaborate paint jobs, in black and white film, yet it still does Death Spray Custom some justice. To top it off, I left all my extra film at home, so I couldn’t shoot more.
For a full color Gallery, shot digitally, head over to last year’s Beautiful Bicycle post.
What do I even say about the work of Death Spray Custom? Never heard of it? You should head over to David’s new site, where the pictures do plenty of talking. Wow dude… such a comprehensive catalog of work!
