For each Red Hook Crit race, there is a prize bike and each year, the prize bikes just keep getting better! For example, here’s a look at the 2013 Red Hook Crit Barcelona Cinelli 824 track bike, which is arguably the best prize bike yet. Assembled by Barceloneta Bikes.
Some race (and lucky) racer is going to bring this one home with them this weekend!
I shoot a lot of bikes, so when I see a unique photo, I always take note. This one in particular came from Tracko last week and I never got around to re-posting it. Check out more great photos of this murdered-out GT track bike here!
Summer is here and that means road trips! Some just choose to ride their bikes:
“4 Days. Over 400 Miles.
11 people. Bike crews from NYC and Montréal. NYC: Chalet Magazine. MTL: The Starley Rover Society x Vélo iBike. Cyclists from Québec, France, England, Australia, Saskatchewan. Road bikes and Fixed Gear bikes, no brakes.
Start: La Colombe (SoHo, NYC).
Finish: Taverne Chez Normand (Plateau Mont-Royal, Montréal)”
I can’t wait to see more. That’s some beautiful countryside they rode through. The full-length premiered at the Jakalope Fest.
When I travel, I always have a camera on me and lately, it’s been a toss up between the Mamiya and the Leica. The only time I really carry my digital camera with me is if I am going to shoot a bike, or a shop, but in general, all my travel photos have been film. Which creates an overflow of randomness from each city I visit. Most of which don’t merit a post just by themselves. See some narrated photos of faces and places in the Gallery! Hey, if I don’t post them, they’ll sit on my hoard drive…
“Cycles” is a new trailer that interviews cycling figures in Italy. Beginning with Alberto Masi, a frame builder named Soldino Soldani and two different shops: Ciclistica in Milan and Iride Fixed in Modena.

In recent years, a large push for original content has spawned a steady flow of photosets, profiles and portraits.
Known for his A Day in 10 Photos, Merckx Mondays, Recent Roll, Shop Visits, and Beautiful Bicycles features, John continues to document bicycles of all kinds and his daily life through photos. Over the years, Prolly is Not Probably has been cited in the New York Times, COG Magazine, Urban Velo and other notable publications. In March of 2011, John moved to Austin, Texas where he continues to cover a cross section of cultural influences.
