Chas has a number of these Cannondale track bikes that have been thrashed on the street over the years, resulting in some pretty heft beausage. Since this one in particular has a few dents, he decided to turn it into a doodle bike and sell the frameset, along with this hand painted disc wheel. Both are for sale now at his webshop, so head over to see more details.

Devin is the machinist at Stinner Frameworks and like many of us, grew up worshipping the heros of skateboaring, the culture and inevitably, the iconography surrounding the sport. One of which being Mark Rogowski and his famous “Gator” pattern. While things inevitably went south for Rogowski, his graphics, particularly a spiraling razzle pattern lived on, inspiring graphic artists for years to come. James, the paint designer at Stinner, used the pattern on the inside of the fork blades and under the fat, oversized Columbus downtube. Then, a subtle ombre blue to green fade was clear coated with a sparkle pearl, resulting in one mean looking street machine.
