Another artist that’s been working with Unknown and CBNC on their raffle bikes is David Flores. Ace from The Sleepers went over to David’s studio while he was working on masking out the frameset and his photos are very nice. Worth the click-through even… If you’re in LA this evening, roll through the raffle event tonight!
The Great Divide Road Frameset
The Little Wing Track Frameset
I can’t tell you how many companies I get emailing me their frames but rarely do the words Made in the USA appear in the copy. No 22 is a Canadian company, using a well-known US-based titanium manufacturer to produce high end but affordable frames.
Their two models are the Great Divide road frame and the Little Wing track frame. Both of which tout clean detailing and construction. I’m waiting on a complete build to post as well, so stay tuned. Until then, check out No 22′s offerings here!
… and they mean business for the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard. Three guys from Division 1, a new bike shop on the East Side of Austin will be there racing. More on their bikes tomorrow!

Chris Bishop’s Columbus MS track frame made the rounds on the internet almost immediately after it was built and documented. I’d say that it was one of his most popular frames to date. So popular that when Ben put a deposit down, he specifically requested the road version of the beloved MS track frame and that’s exactly what he got! See more at the Bishop Flickr!
Here’s the latest from State Bicycle Co, in Chicago!
“The State Bicycle Co. – Undefeated is a 7005 Aluminum Track Bike with Full Carbon Fiber Fork and intergrated FSA Headset. This race ready machine feature SRAM Omnium Cranks standard. We’ve partnered with Ritchey Components on the cockpit and seat post.”

Now this looks rad! Straight from Unknown:
“The CBNC team is raffling off a few of our frames to raise money for heir road trip up to Seattle for this years NACCC’s. They got Devon Tsuno on board to paint one of our LV2 frames and it turned out amazing! The frame along with an LV1 painted by Codak and a PS1 painted by Dave Flores will be up for auction starting this Sunday, for a week, at the CBNC 5th Anniversary Pop Up Store. This will take place at Gallery 1988 on 7020 Melrose Ave. We’ll have more pics of the other two frames as they come in! Follow this link to pick up a raffle ticket! Also, if you don’t feel lucky Citygrounds has the LV2′s on sale right now here!”
I had to swing by Icarus Frames ( @IcarusFrames ) today to pick up a few things and while I was there, I got to see some of his latest handywork. This 1×10 commuter cross frame is heading up to Boston and while the customer didn’t want anything too fancy, Ian added some clean detailing. The fork will be an ENVE cross and it’ll be heading out to paint shortly. Part of me really loves seeing a frame in this state but a good coat of paint always brings out the details.
Check out a few more shots below.
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.
It’s been a while since I’ve heard anything from Traitor Cycles but this is nice return! Introducing the Crusade disc:
“For 2013 the Crusade is going to disc only for braking options and features a new custom dropout system we designed to run gears or singlespeed. We will have two sets of dropouts available, one set with a derailler mount and one without for a cleaner singlespeed look. The nice thing about the new dropout system is that singlespeed racers can now run a rear wheel with a QR and can pop their wheel in and out without having to re-tension the wheel.
The Crusade continues to have internal full length cable routing for the rear brake for a clean look and ease of shouldering the bike. The framesets will be available mid to late summer and will retail for $599 for the frame and fork. The frame will feature a Race Butted Founderland Seamless Chromoly for the frame material.”
See more detail photos below.
Dosnoventa has two new frame models on their site now, the Kuala Lumpur and Detroit 2. Head on over to see their respective specs.
