We are pleased to share a special project we have been working on with Chas Christiansen and the team at Columbus/Cinelli. Enclosed are some details of our first Columbus steel frame set. This unique platform is intended to solve for a broad range of needs with one bike. Chas travels heavily—racing alley cats, working as a messenger, racing cyclocross—so this bike was born from those diverse needs. The geo has a high bottom bracket and is aggressive in nature, but allows for weight to be carried on the front rack while feeling stable. The frame and fork have removable canti brake studs, so the bike can be ridden as a clean fixed gear, or single speed cyclocross frame set including internal cable routing for the rear brake. Both the frame and fork will clear 35c tires for dirt, or a smooth street tire. We kept a raw look that preserves the weld heat markings by adding a clear coat to the steel. This treatment celebrates Columbus, whom we are proud to call family. Garrett Chow drew on the historical Cinelli and Columbus art archive to detail this frame set in a timeless manner.


Surf City 3 - Part I

For the final installation of the Surf City Cyclocross Series, based around Santa Cruz, CA, the skies opened up in the days and minutes leading up to the race.  Buttery conditions made for maximum gnar. Heckles ran high and pedal revolutions ran slow, but no racer was disappointed by the challenge of the course.  As the 2014 CX season begins to wrap up for the Bay Area, I would like to say thanks to Vive La Tarte, Fresh Air Hunter, MASH and King Kog.  All of our teams have rallied to provide an unconventional amount of support for each other.  Wether it’s bike sharing, ride sharing, tent sharing, beer sharing, lube sharing or towel sharing we all have had so much fun playing in the dirt together.
