Talk about a case of the Mondays. Yikes! Thanks for sharing Tracko!
I love paint jobs like this, found on the newest custom frame from Colossi, the Bobby Brown road. See more at the Colossi Flickr.
Here’s the latest video from the German company Vandeyk and for some reason, “winter is coming” suddenly got stuck in my head. So rad.
You know a steel bike is utilizing the most in technology when an accomplished raconteur like FYXO assumes it’s made from carbon fiber. No kidding. When Gomi rolled into Golden Saddle Cyclery on his 2011 Speedvagen road bike, everyone was drawn to it immediately. What’s not to love about the fabled “surprise me” paint jobs? Or that build. EDGE / ENVE, Tune, EE Cycleworks and Super Record 11 really bring this build in under 16 lbs.
And it’s steel!

Look, I photograph a lot of bicycles, sometimes under the gun due to time constraints or lighting, so when I get the chance to look at a bike from a different angle, or perspective, it really makes my day. Here’s a shot of Chris’ Speedvagen road, taken in LA, at a spot where I’ve photographed many bikes, but never thought about utilizing the location’s vantage points.
It’s not much, but for me, it made the shoot worth it, especially with a 135mm lens. More on this bike to come…
I’m digging this new Independent Fabrication XS.
In the spirit of the Rapha Continental, the guys at Firefly have added their ‘glow’ to the list of builders who’ve contributed black bikes with a pink letter. Personally, I love that the guys use SRAM Force on most of the Continental machines. It’s like they’re meant to be ridden hard, on gravel and whatever else might be thrown in the rider’s path.

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!
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.
