Talk to anyone on the US Olympic track team and they’ll tell you that Woody’s one solid wrench. Not only that, but he holds down the repairs at Golden Saddle Cyclery and coaches in his part time. Bottom line, Woody’s one solid fella who knows his way around the velodrome.
After recovering from a MTB wreck, where he broke his femur and clavicle, Jeff from All-City set him up with an Thunderdome track frame to aid in his physical therapy. With a machine like this, no one would need any more encouragement to hit the boards. This was one of the first track bikes I’ve shot where the tires weren’t allowed to touch the ground, save for the photos…
All-City’s got some new bags hitting the shelves of your LBS, one of which is the Low Profile, a 1100cu backpack. Check out more at All-City.
If I had to guess off the top of my head, which model bike has been featured the most on the site, it’d have to be the All City Nature Boy. Whether racing it singlespeed cross, or commuting or messengering on it, the Nature Boy is the people’s choice and when I saw Rob’s, I had to give it some lens love. Lots of street grime, character, stickers and yes, a top tube pad, make this one of the more unique builds I’ve seen. Technically, this isn’t a singlespeed though. Rob got a bit crafty with his setup. Look closely…
Jeff from All-City has been rambling on and on and on and on and on about how much he loves his new Macho Man Disc. You know what? I totally agree. It’s a good looking bike and everyone’s been really stoked on it. Even the Frost Bike reception was very positive. If you want to read Mr. Frane’s thoughts on it, head to the All-City Blog.
Bottom line: MSRP for the frame is $625, with the complete coming in at $1795.
Jeff, shown here doing the “Jeff Frane” pose, just got in a full shipment of All City Wool Jerseys. These come in both short and long sleeves. Check out more details and sexy poses at All City.
Last weekend was the Texas State Cyclocross Championships. I headed out with my Hasselblad and my Leica to shoot some photos. While I’m in the midst of scanning everything, here’s a shot of Chris Lee, post-wreck. His bars got clipped, on a fast downhill section, sending them sideways and Chris, over the bars onto his chest. He sat there, catching his breath and moments later, his tube exploded from the popped bead. Luckily, the dude is ok.
More photos to come.
Feel like hanging out in an abandoned building with the boy of your dreams? Well, Jeff from All City has the perfect new leisure suit on, just waiting for you. Check out the new All City party boy kits here and order direct through you LBS. Looking hot, Jeff!
All-City’s first aluminum frame, the Thunderdome is now in stock. These true-track geometry race machines can be ordered through your local shop, starting today. Head over to All-City for more photos and specs.
There are two people I will always claim as an early inspiration for PiNP: Andy from FYXO and Kyle from Tracko. These two have become some of my best friends and while their blogs both tote track bike-inspired names, it’s clear that they have embraced all forms of cycling over the years.
Kyle in particular has some very stringent requirements when it comes to products he’ll use and bikes he’ll own. He’s a big advocate of made in the USA bicycles, so I was surprised when I saw him riding the All-City Nature Boy Zona, especially when he has a perfectly fine Kelly SS CX. The reasoning? He loves the way it rides and supports All-City’s #partybrand ideals. Or something…
