Trackosaurus Rex: Car Dodgers Home and Away Tees

I always love Tracko’s t-shirts and this one’s got some history…

“About four years ago I had friend draw this up for me, still not sure why I waited so long to actually produce these tees. But with the Los Angeles Dodgers’ wonderful season and American Apparel finally making a Ash Gray that I was stoked on, I figured it was about time.

Trackosaurus Rex: God Save the Track Bike Tees in Stock

Photo by Chris Fortuna

Is it punk or is it couture? Whatever it is, this isn’t the first time high fashion has collided with a Tracko offering. The STTB button was inspired by a campaign to “Save The Tents” during NY Fashion Week. This latest tee and koozie pull inspiration from another fashion industry giant – Kate Moss. Originally published in a 2002 issue of i-D magazine, and shot by Craig McDean, the now iconic image of Moss in an olive drab military jacket with “God Save The Queen” painted on the back has long been a favorite of mine.

Pick one up at Trackosaurus Rex!

Trackosaurus Rex: Ride Hard Relax Harder

Photos by Kyle Kelley

Los Angeles is my favorite place to work. It has the best rides in the country (ATMO – that’s for you, Pablo), some of the nicest bikes and you can drive just hours away to be in the middle of some of the most beautiful landscapes the western United States has to offer. In the two weeks I was visiting the NRGSC, we rode hard, partied harder and yes, I even worked my ass off to bring new content to the site.

Sure, we’d all rather ride than work but sometimes, there is a bit of overlap. Moments like this are just too good to not share. Evidence of a big rides and the moment where you hit the coldest water you’ve felt in months. I can’t wait to see more of everyone’s photos from the past two weeks!

For the First Time

… the three of us are together in Los Angeles. Fyxo, Tracko and myself. Expect some radness to pick up momentum here shortly, for now, we’re probably out riding. Follow the guys on Instagram (linked).

Pardon Me…

Sorry for the lack of updates this weeekend. We’ve been soaking in Minneapolis in various ways and that means I get very little time to update the site with all the shenanigans. Here’s a quick pre-ride shot from the other night’s ride with the Fulton Brewery All City racing team.

Kyle had a little atavistic urge to get rad… Regular posting will commence tomorrow!

Cool Mornings and the Endo Vest

It’s been in the 50’s every morning up in the mountains of Vermont where I’m staying even though last week it was in the upper 90’s. As I was packing for this trip, at the last minute, I grabbed my Endo Customs wind vest and tossed it into my duffle. This one in particular is the Tracko splinter camo design, which came out ridiculously rad.

The thing about vests is they keep your core warm, without overheating you like a jacket and they’ll pack away into a jersey pocket with ease. The Endo vests have three pockets, vented sides and a large zipper pull that’s easily found through full finger gloves. I’ve only used it a few times and I’ve got no complaints. It fits better than other gilets or vests I’ve used, especially when coupled with Endo kits.

Really, the only bummer is, you can’t buy it direct from Endo, you have to wait until someone sells a design as part of a kit. Winter is coming and I think I’ve got a pretty rad idea for my next kit run, so stay tuned!

10th Anniversary Fat Chance MTB by Kyle Kelley

I’m one lucky guy. Since Tracko has “sworn off” posting anything but track bikes, I get all the radness that rolls through the doors at Golden Saddle Cyclery. The first of which, being the crème de la crème of the Fat Chance MTB line, the 10 year anniversary Fat.

This is no ordinary Fat Chance. The 10th anniversary frames came with a titanium, etched plate (this one’s 113 out of 200), a BOI Yo Eddy Fork and complete True Temper OX tubing. Most of which came outfitted with a full Campagnolo Record OR gruppo and were highly sought after at the $1450 MSRP (frameset). The weight? Around 23 pounds. Not too shabby and that paint job…

Those who want to read up more on the 10th Anniversary frame can check out this article from the MTB forums.

Kyle did this one justice with tons of detailed photos and he even tracked down some Campagnolo OR brake levers to replace the Avid models currently on the bike. See for yourself in the Gallery!
