Jimmy’s All-City Big Bad Big Block Street Track

Jimmy’s All-City Big Bad Big Block Street Track

Track bikes in the city can turn any ride into a completely new experience and perhaps that’s what Jimmy was looking for when he built up his new All-City Big Block. That and an excuse to put all his balleur parts he’d been hoarding on a new bike. Why wouldn’t he? These frames are beautiful with their sparkle paint job and street-friendly geometry. The velo hip will note the special edition Phil Wood splatter track hubs, the Sim Works Caroline stem, White Industries pedals, Sugino outboard bottom-bracket cranks with a RWB AARN chainring and a super rare grey suede Selle Flite saddle. To be completely honest, when I saw this bike all built up at Golden Saddle Cyclery, where Jimmy is the manager, I couldn’t believe how well it turned out. The best part is, Jimmy actually rides this beaut too! Well, sometimes, anyway.

Keep crankin’, Jimmy!

Dosnoventa Runs Japan

When I posted this trailer last week, I got a text from a guy who has worked in the industry for decades. The dude is a legend, in many regards. His text said, “You know, I spend my days telling my company that making cycling look cool isn’t easy, but that Dosnoventa video made riding bikes look cool.”

You know what? I’d agree.

The 2012 Red Bull #RideNStyle – Racers

Compared to last year’s event, the 2012 Red Bull RideNStyle race track was a huge improvement. The lanes were wider, racers were required to use some of the fixed freestyle course and with the addition of two banks on the staircase, people were encouraged to gap the channel. Much as I anticipated, the competition came down to four racers.

In the end, it came down to Addison Zawada, Hern and Walton. Three strong racers, all out for it and the crowd was into it.
