I caught this photo of Evan Murphy ripping his Death Spray Stanridge on the Death Spray Custom blog. Photographed by Greg Falski of SOFB, during the Red Hook Crit Milano. This was after I came across both Crihs’ Red Hook Crit Barcelona portrait of Evan and an interview with DSC photographer Mitch Payne on Nowhere Fast!
It’s been a busy day for Death Spray!

During the Red Hook Crit Barcelona warm up at D’Horta Velodrome, David Trimble shot some photos of the competition. Check out more at David’s Flickr!
Like a true artist, each and every piece that leaves Death Spray Custom has a concept, or a story behind it. When you first see this Stanridge Speed Highstreet, however, you might just end up scratching your head. Even though the concept is crystal clear. Let me elaborate.
A few years ago, when Dan Chabanov first received his Highstreet to race at the Red Hook Crit, the initial reaction someone had to the frame was “that’s not steel”. All it took was a magnet to prove it was, in fact, steel. When I walked in the doors at King Kog hours later, the magnet was still on the seat tube. Adam from Stanridge told David at DSC and he went wild with it.
Simple enough right? That’s the beauty of true art. It’s simple. The execution though, must be flawless and this bike is just that. Flawless. Well, that was until it flew over the barricade at the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard!
This machine has seen its share of races, spills and thrills. It’s not a wall-hanger, it comes alive at the Red Hook Crit. If you’re going to be at the Red Hook Crit Milan or Barcelona, you’ll be able to catch this bike in person. If not, see more in the Gallery!
Dan posted this photo up on his Tumblr earlier today. It’s of the new Stanridge Speed prototype track frame. Adam and Dan worked together on what I would call a much more practical geometry. The early name for this prototype is the “Highstreet Compact”. We’ll see if that one sticks. Personally, I’m more into compact lines on a track bike, rather than a low pro and this bike looks like a beast. We’ll see how it performs tonight at the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard!
Adam from Stanridge Speed has really won over the world of the track bike criteriums with his made in the USA race machine, the Highstreet. This Thursday, June 6th, head to Chrome’s NYC Hub to chat with Adam and drink some beer.
On a side note: Dan Chabs can wheelie? Lets see him do that when he smashes everyone yet again at Red Hook Crit Brooklyn Navy Yard. You guys don’t stand a chance!
Stanridge Speed took a podium this year at the 2013 Red Hook Crit. Will the momentum continue at the Navy Yards on June 8th?
Here’s a little teaser of what to expect from the Stanridge Speed team at Red Hook Crit this year. I’m sure you’re wondering why there are magnets all over the skinsuit but you’ll have to wait for the story… Let’s just say Death Spray Custom went all out with this one and Endo‘s delivering the goods.
Man, I think this is the first time I’ve seen the Phil Wood cranks on a photographed bike and they look great. Here’s the newest from Stanridge Speed. Thanks for sending this over, Adam.

Give me a street-thrashed track bike over a wiped and polished wall hanger anyday. Dan’s 2012 Red Hook Crit Brooklyn-winning Stanridge Speed track bike has seen some time on the NYC streets. Love this photo Dan, dead rat and all.
Here’s the newest teaser from Stanridge Speed, featuring Taylor and his new cross bike.
