Dan Chabanov’s Stanridge Speed Red Hook Crit Track Bike

In the waining hours of daylight today, I met up with long-time friend Dan Chabanov. In the past few years, I’ve watched and admired Dan’s progress as he’s grown to what I’ll call a professional cyclist (read: PRO). While he competes actively in the road circuits, Dan’s most known for being an ATMO racer. His past season for Richard Sachs earned him much-deserved respect in the cross circuits and I felt like, the whole time, I was living through reading his race reports on Bonedeth.

A few months back, Adam of Stanridge Speed offered to send Dan a Highstreet Low Pro to race at the 2012 Red Hook Crit. Knowing that Dan is of “racer pedigree”, Adam knew if he got his bike under his, well, uhh, taint?, he’d receive some great PR&D, as well as exposure. Let’s face it, the Red Hook Crit is the premiere track bike crit and Dan is indeed #fixiefamous. I shot this bike in very little light and complete darkness, all handheld, at apertures I’ve learned to avoid, so please excuse the shallow depth of field.

    Despite what you’re worried about the pictures look nice

    I especially love the shots in the bus booth.

  • Leonard Zenowski

    definitely not the real bonedeth

    Do you know what color (shade of red) the frame is? Looks sick!

    • AdamEldridge

      Hey Kidd. It’s metallic candy apple red in real life. I laid down a base of silver and the candy red over the top. Thanks. 

      • Kidd

        Thanks for the reply Adam, awesome looking frame with gorgeous paintjob – terrific work!

  • David Trimble

    Nice wheels

  • Ben On7

    What kind of wheels are those?

  • David Trimble

    The wheels of last year’s prize bike.  Hand-built by Dave Perry 

  • Been watching this frame evolve over on @AdamEldridge:disqus Instagram, it’s beautiful, great to see it done!

    Looks like a solid ride, omniums to surly will be buttery smooth, Dura-Ace to OpenPro (I think?) is solid build, and Adam’s frames are pieces of art.


  • Gorgeous bike, I really like how the shape of the fork kind of matches the shape of the seat tube. My only complaint is the gap in the lower race of the headset, it almost looks like the headset isn’t clamped down all the way
