San Francisco, CA (April 30, 2011) —On a picture perfect Saturday afternoon, more than 5,000 people headed to San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza to watch Red Bull Ride + Style. The event was a collision of fixed gear biking and urban contemporary art, with the competition held on a course featuring artwork created by California artists. Red Bull Ride + Style brought together 60 riders from all over, including riders from the Bay Area, Seattle, Portland, New York and even Japan.
Participating riders competed in one of two categories: track or freestyle. The track competition was along the lines of a traditional race, with two riders going head-to-head and the one with the best time advancing to the next round. The track included a custom art installation by Los Angeles-based artists Mark Grieve and Ilana Spector that served as the starting arch. The competition was fierce on the narrow track, with riders elbowing each other for position, and multiple riders crashing into the guard rails. In the end, there was a final showdown between two Bay Area riders that weren’t even supposed to compete. Jason Clary and Kell McKenzie were both alternates, who were only asked to fill in for dropouts the day before the event. The two friends, who ride together often, put friendship aside for the final race, and Clary was able to edge out McKenzie for the win.

So we have been working hard to create a 2nd edition to our artist series bikes.. We posted up a awesome teaser pic a few months back of the new project that pretty much gave away nothing.. Well it’s getting closer and we figured we would give another teaser to this project.. Artist still isn’t going to be announced yet, but we gotta say.. It’s our favorite artist and the bike is going to be sooo dope!
Here is a sick sketch done by Ube on how the paint is going to look… If you ever need any custom paint work done.. hit him up @ Ube Ice Cream Shop
We have to say special thanks to SE Bikes, Aerospoke, Ube Icecream Shop and Serfas so far for this project.. Here

A few months ago.. We were packing up the Nakanari / Urban1cycle bike to head to Reign in Orlando for a exhibit.. Around two weeks before the show, we were in a pickle not knowing how we would mount and show the bike at the exhibit.. Then a magical box appeared at our door step, from the awesome guys at FeedBack Sports.. I’ll be honest, I never heard of FeedBack before receiving this stand, but I have to admit I was soooo impressed with there product.
We got our grubby hands on the Sports Mechanic Repair stand by FeedBack, we loved the matte black look to the stand. FeedBack’s signature color is red on there stand’s, but we needed a matte black so it wouldn’t take away from the bike, yet do the job.. The mechanic repair stand is super light weight, only weighing in at 12.6lbs. It can hold up to 65lbs , which would be a tank of a bike. The stand can adjust it’s height from 42″-65″… so no more back breaking leaning over to the ground to work on your bike..
Your able to tilt the bike in any position.. Check below with our project bike mounted up
