In addition to all the new track frame offerings Dosnoventa has been serving up recently, today they released the Helsinki SSCX. Tapered fork, oversized aluminum tubing and those fat stays outta make for one stiff ride. Check out more details at Dosnoventa.
SF Sprints is coming up June 8th, so if you’re in town, roll through. See more details here.
Sorry for the slow morning. I had to go ride this morning to shake off the jetlag. While I was jamming out with some friends, I wore my new TSH Shark Tooth Cap. As I sat at the top of one of the steepest climbs in Austin, I couldn’t help but appreciate its radness. Now, I am no hero but TSH’s products make me smile. That’s worth something.
The radness continues with the new Tenspeed Heroisms: the LA GIRAFE SPORTIVE and the HÉLICOPTÈRE are bringing more of that much-needed playfulness to cycling.
Macaframa put together a nice video recap from the 2013 Ride + Style in SF and it’s worth the watch!

This bike was a huge hit when I first posted it back in January. Kevin took his new Cinelli Mash track bike to West Coast Hydrographix for a appliqué of Real Tree camo. I got to see this bike in person yesterday and had to shoot some photos of it. Check out more detail photos in the gallery!

As previously-stated, yesterday I rode with Chas in Golden Gate Park. Which if I lived in SF, would be a daily staple in my riding routine. There’s something completely ironic about a camo cycling kit but it works exceptionally well on the new Endo Customs-made TCB Courier kits and yes, they look completely rad in person too.

Right now, this bike has no stories to share, save for its tale of a birth from torch and steel but in a year, it’ll have many miles under its saddle. John’s randonneur is the latest from Royal H Cycles. See the full set here.
Since receiving low res scans of my 220 and 35mm film from the Mission Workshop China tour, I’ve been slowly editing down the photos for a show and a limited edition book. Lyndi from Mission Workshop has been a huge help in editing down all the photos and in this selection process, we’ve found a surprising number of pairings. It’s nice to finally nail down a concept.
My photo show and book launch, entitled the Ends will be taking place on Saturday, June 15th in San Francisco at Mission Workshop. More details to come on the event but mark that date down.
I hope you can make it out!

I really do think that Rick captures the best moments with Tom. The framing on this is perfect. Great photo man!
Mission Workshop‘s highly modular R2 Arkiv Field Pack can fit just about anything you’d need to carry. The MOLLE-inspired rails accept pouches, sleeves and with more attachments in development, you can have a number of bags in one.
