Here is Rahja.. Rahja comes from the rocky mountain state of Colorado, she has been with urban1cycle from the beginning. She wanted to share with us a sneak peek of a photoshoot she did with Cosmic Motion Studios, which will be out next year in a coffee table book about fixed gear.. We can’t wait to see the finished copy and we want a copy!
The dynamic duo of MashSF and Cinelli teamed up again to create another sick bike for the 2010 year.. Here is a sneak peek of what is to come..
Benny Gold designed the sticker layout and colors to represent the MashSF lighting bolt, Cinelli will be releasing a traditional color option along with the green and white..
Is another man’s treasure.
We love the fact that this rider found this frame in a trash and converted to a perfectly functioning single speed bike. Not only this bike is functioning but it is a damn good looking also.
Call it what you want: going green, recycling… etc, but this is how street fixed gear/single speed cycling started. You take an old frame and convert it to a kick ass street bike. No need to spend thousands of dollars on a brand new shiny bike.
Here is some info from Cody, rider who put together this bike:
“I have a single speed road bike, frame is by Mohawk. I originally found this bike in the trash, I’ve put some Alex DA28 Rims and Vittoria Rando’s and a San Marco Rolls saddle, everything else is original. I live in Cape Coral, Florida. Just thought I would show you guys what I’m working on.” Our hats go off to you Cody for a job well done. Let us know if you do any other mods on this bike.
Here are some pics for you to enjoy:
The Bicycle Bash is designed as a populist, mainstream bicycle event that is
offering an official invite to bicyclists of all stripes — bike commuters and
roadies; mountain bikers and single-speeders; fat-tire cruisers and recumbent
cyclists. Urban1cycle will be there October 11th to check this event out. Hope to see you all there. Here are some pics of the previous year event.
Finally available in the United States, this complete bike offers ample versatility. Mystic Rats hails from Cinelli’s Bootleg series of urban bikes. Columbus custom aluminum tubing and Columbus custom carbon fork are heart of this machine. This bike comes with brakes but with simple flip of the rear wheel you can turn this bike into a full fixie ride. For more info try this link . Here are some pics of a full white version.
One of these days we will make to the ECMC in Berlin.
Here is some background on this event:
“In 1993 the first-ever Cycle Messenger World Championships were held in Berlin, Germany, and with it an international community and new sport emerged.
The Berlin Bike Messenger Association (BBM e.V.) hosted the 14th-annual European Cycle Messenger Championships over Pentecost weekend in Berlin.
The ECMC 2009 brought hundreds of professional bike messengers from Europe and beyond together for three days of races and social activities. ECMC celebrated messenger unique profession and attendant lifestyles.”
Here are some pics from ECMC 2009 Event. For more coverage go to www.ecmc2009.com
Crooked C-Law has given a sneak peek to a colab he did with Adidas Samba to create the Fixed Gear Pack. There is no info on pricing or where you can pick these up.. Totally feeling the black pair, can’t wait til they are released..
The Standard and SE came together to colab on the PK Ripper fixed gear bike. The Standard took 20 of the 1000 PK Ripper Fixed gear bike to make a super limited edition bike, 15 of these bikes will be at The Standard in NYC to be used by there customers and 5 will be sold online at there online store. I personally like the all flat black with the front gold wheel.. super nice bike with a price tag of $1250 USD.
