Rogue Status x Bianchi project

You all get it by now I'm sure. I'm into Concepts. Here's a little project that came out nicely. I'm not familiar w/ Rogue Status but click around their site a little bit and you'll find out that they aren't as Fast and Furious as the first impression lets on. Link to Snobiety for more pictures.

Rogue Status

I feel like I've missed a dozen good videos and other post potential out there. Things have been bonkers at work and home but I can't wait to bicycle boogie tonight! has projected temp @ 68 for the night.

Durcus One Master


MASI unknown

Schwinn (the) Cutter

They claimed to name this one after the team in Breaking Away but I'm thinking it was named after the Echo and the Bunnymen song.

Bianchi Pista (Flat Bar)

Leader 735 TR/TT (at least I think that it is) This frame looks really good and stout. I'm not certain what Van Dessel is but it sounds bald and steroid ridden. I'm pretty sure this is the Leader frame but not certain. I've been eyeing the Leader because it looks pretty good and is fairly affordable. I've heard good and bad things about this frame and it all comes back to the way you ride I suppose.

a few more shots...

This could be a shot of the new Trek DISTRICT. Or it could just be someones build. bicycledesign cited the picture as being from Trek World 09. As for a off the shelf ride this thing doesn't look all that bad. Color choices are strong. As for me I'm always going to be a fan of custom build ups. Trek's legal might pull this picture so I'm going to save it rather than linking.

P.S. if anyone knows how I can watch the video of Clay's newscast cameo, LINK ME...

Moving by bike in NY

Bike Move NYC from Nicholas Whitaker on Vimeo.

Wish I knew more about this.

Seems like Cinelli might be might be teaming up with the MASH guys to make a team frame. It looks a little racey for what I would expect to see from MASH.
What I do know is that they were posted by Gabe's partner Mike Martin and one of the frames has G.Chow on it which inevitably stands for Garrett Chow.

Circle A Cycles

Rapha Continental has posted an interview with the two fellas behind Circle A Cycles. They make a killer bike but you're going to pay close to 2k for one and their lead time is close to 6 months out...

Sunday Night Ride - 8/9/08

Meet on 2nd Ave between Gallery Lofts/FAITH at 6:30 for repairs. Be ready to ride at 7PM (it will be great weather).

UPDATE - I checked the weather this morning. It looks as if we might have some storms later on in the day. Just keep your eyes peeled. The ride should still be on just check your doppler first before you drive from a far away land (like Tuscaloosa or Argo).

Rickshaw Bagworks

Been a lot going on in the bag realm lately. Take a look at Rickshaw Bagworks Flickr Photostream. Stuff looks pretty alright.

So incredibly unrelated...

So my wife showed me this video the other night and I thought that I'd share. News is slow and everyone needs a good chuckle from time to time.

eBay Lay-a-Way - Black MKS GR9 Pedals

MKS GR-9 Pedals BLACK Fixed Track LIMITED RUN!

So We're going to start posting stuff we like on the Old eBay Seasoning that might be of interest. This particular item is the pedal Alan and I ride. I've never seen it before in black. It's a great pedal for cornering fast but doesn't work so hot if you're going to be riding outside the cages as there's not that much of a platform on the bottomside. The pedals I had on my bike before these were causing me to pedal strike when I took turns too hard. These work perfect. Price is about on par with what I paid at Milwaukee/Ben's Cycle.

It's All Over Fellas

deal of a steal

Update, There's a thread Alan mentioned last night going on here. I'm riding my $10 bag w/ pride. I know it's a knock off but buying a legit $200 messenger bag falls just behind buying a true track frame and a crank that doesn't clank on the ole' list of priorities. One day I hope to own a Chrome or R.E.Load but in the mean time this $10.00 special is going to serve me well. No one can argue that those bags are better in every way but price.

Just bought a messenger bag from U.O.
It's much nicer than the pictures let on.
It's no Chrome or Reload but it's built pretty tough. Inside is lined with ruberized cordura nylon and the outside is equally tough. Not certain on the capacity but it's pretty big.
Best part is that they're $9.99. in store and 19.99 on the internet. If you ride tonight you'll see that it looks a little better on than in the pictures.

Ray Underhill - RIP

Most of you younger folks won't know who this but Ray Underhill was apart of the Bones Brigade. I remember first seeing him in "The Search for Animal Chin" (1987) in the backyard ramp jam. Friday morning in North Carolina Ray Underhill died due to complications with his Chordoma cancer. He will be greatly missed.

20 minutes at the island from Jonathan Hall on Vimeo.

On one hand it's taking more and more skill to really impress me. On the other hand we've got a lot of catching up to do....

see you all sunday night

In two nights we ride

We're going to get out again this Sunday night. The time isn't 100% but we'll shoot for 6:30 or so. If you can't make it in time call Mark or me to find out where we are. I've got a little bit of bike work to do before I get out again.
Have a great weekend.
