Well, the Ono by Death Spray Custom and Tokyo Fixed. But seriously, that’s a great portrait of a great bike. I know Tracko loves getting weird on his.

Anytime a builder gets to ride, it’s a beautiful thing but anytime a builder gets to race one of their own bikes, it’s pretty fucking rad. Seth Rosko raced Single Speed-A-Palooza last weekend and NYC-area photographer GT Luke caught him ripping up his SS 650b rigid MTB.
As much as I love details and side elevations of bikes, sometimes getting right up, front and center is equally as compelling. Especially when you’re staring down a Firefly.

This Cinelli Vigorelli 330 was awarded to the winner of the 2013 Red Hook Crit, Neil Bezdek. June 8th kicks off the second in the series of four races… See you in the Naval Yard but til then, check out more photos of the bike here and if you’re so inclined to pick one up yourself, you can do so here.

Here’s a continuation of the Los Angeles street artist-painted Ride N Style edition Leader track frames. We already saw some photos from Risk and now here’s a select few from Matt Lingo’s visit to Tristan Eaton’s studio. I can’t wait to see what these guys are cooking up.
What better way to round out the day than with some Ti anodizing from Firefly? If this were a cross bike, I’d say it’d need a set of the Purple PAUL touring cantis. By the way, another batch is going up on Friday…
Speaking of FBM, the pre-order for the 2013 Sword SQ track frames is now open. Colors include: clear, trans blue, trans gold, galaxy grey and flat black. Head over to FBM Bike Co now for more information and see my Sword build photos here.

… and this is why. Well, ‘Straya, it’s been fun. After my flight got canceled yesterday, I’m leaving today, so the site will be dormant for a few hours. Andy from FYXO will be posting more photos of me ripping his brand new BT track bike (with a black Shamal!) soon…
When I posted a few photos of this bike, a bunch of people emailed me, asking about its history. To be honest, I’m not 100% sure what the history is, other than it’s a Sun Graphics respray in the less common Telekom livery. That and it’s got a great built kit. See that stem? Instant classic. I’ve seen a lot of Merckx bikes in Melbourne, but Paul’s is one of my favorites.
The days of the 19mm bolt on PAUL Wacky One-Speed Rear Device (W.O.R.D.) hubs are long gone, so a relic like this is limited to a single use. Dan from Shifter Bikes pulled this out the other day and I had to take a few photos of it.
