I have been spending so much time this trip shooting rad cross bikes. All of which have come from Golden Saddle Cyclery, including this one. Ty needed a new fork for his All City Nature Boy, so Kyle lent him the coveted Death Spray Custom painted ENVE cross fork. There’s more to come…
I know I give Ben from Argonaut Cycles a lot of praise here on the site but with a product like his custom, made in the USA, carbon fiber #spacebikes, I don’t feel even the slightest guilty. Ben’s work is innovative and unique, two things that are hard to find these days…
Last night, Shelter Half held an open forum with Ben. People came, Ben talked and then everyone drank. It was great.
Check out a few photos in the Gallery!
I can’t come to LA and not hang out with Christian, the Golden Saddle Cyclery shop hand. He’s one of the best. After his last frame didn’t work out, he commissioned a builder to fabricate a bike that was closer to what he wanted. In short: a custom FGFS rig. He doesn’t have a name for the frame, so I dubbed it the Toe Breaker. Check out a few photos in the Gallery!
Last night Ben from Argonaut Cycles got into LA and this morning, we took him on the Local’s Only cross ride. On his road bike. Let’s just say Ben is “over steel bikes“…
After the ride, he wanted to do a bit of cleaning to his #Spacebike for his talk at Shelter Half. I thought the bike looked better dirty, but you know what people say about presentation.
Be there, 7pm sharp for free beer, finger foods and a fun Q&A session. See all the details for the showcase here.

While a track bike with drops and a negative stem look great in photos, the reality is, at a certain point in one’s life, you just wanna cruise. If anyone knows about cruising, it’s Rivendell Cycles and that’s where Jesse picked up these Nitto Bosco Bullmoose bars for his Kinfolk track bike. Personally, I love it. I’m sure it’ll rub the purists the wrong way but they’re not the ones riding in style like this!
… the three of us are together in Los Angeles. Fyxo, Tracko and myself. Expect some radness to pick up momentum here shortly, for now, we’re probably out riding. Follow the guys on Instagram (linked).
LA is a callin’ and this time, a friend is there to join me in the radness that awaits. My flight leaves in a little bit, so I’ll see you on the other side.

Again, one year I’d love to make it out to the Wolf Pack Hustle events in Los Angeles. Check out more great photos from this year’s Midnight Drag Race here!
If you’re going to be in LA, you should make it out to this. I know I’ll be there!
One of these years I’m going to make it out to this event. Kudos to Wolf Pack Hustle!
