Slawta has created some of the most unique and ostentatious frame designs under his moniker Land Shark. Every time I see one of his works of art, I’m completely mesmerized, especially when neon paint is involved. Kyle recently shot this unique triple triangle track and I don’t wanna give too much of it away, so you’ll have to head over to Trackosaurus Rex to see the rest.

The Radavist’s Top Beautiful Bicycles of 2014

The stick that held up the bikes in this Gallery…

I shot a lot of bikes this year. In fact, I shot more Galleries this year, than any other two years combined. From April 1st’s launch of the Radavist, until last week, the entire team worked hard on bringing a full photo gallery just about every weekday, sometimes twice. Pulling in those metrics took some time, but rather than limiting this year’s selection to just ten, I found the following bikes to be all within the same realm.

Some of these bikes never dropped a chain in terms of year-long momentum, still churning in pageviews and social media chatter to this very day. Surprisingly to me, a few were completely stock bikes. These were all chosen for their Facebook likes, social media engagement, comments and overall traffic. I feel like there were a lot of bikes that were flops as far as traffic was concerned, but I wanted to be fair in selecting the list.

Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s back up a bit.

We began the year with a few big stories, all leading up to one of the busiest weekends of the year, NAHBS. After record-breaking traffic, the world of Beautiful Bicycles culminated in the 2014 NAHBS Drive Side Gallery. From there, it was onto traveling for stories and documenting Beautiful Bicycles along the way… We’ll start off in Prescott, Arizona for the Whiskey Off Road.

Stanridge Speed’s New Highstreet EVO Model
Stanridge_Cover

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.
