Another Edition of Customer Bikes

It's the first day back in the office after Thanksgiving break, and I've got to admit that I'm feeling pretty melancholy. Luckily I know just what to do, go for a ride (later), listen to Motorhead, and check out some builds.

This first bike isn't really a customer's bike as it was given to NYC (ex-Austin) messenger Chris L, as a gift from AC and Nico last year.

Here's what he had to say:
I'm racing every weekend on this thing with the King Kog CX team on top of working 5 days on the road and I gotta say I'm really loving it (even when I want to throw up while racing haha)!

We're always stoked to be able to help out a working courier, keep it up Chris.


And from the other side of the planet comes this spectacular Def Wish build from Kim in Finland.

This bike really warms my heart, because a lot of folks don't realize just how much potential for radness the Def Wish has.  Don't like fixed freestyle?  That's cool, how about an alley thrasher, monster fixed, or off-roader?

Variations on a theme for sure, but the point is that they're actually really fun and practical bikes for scooting around on and doing whatever it is that you do.

And that's it for today, we'll keep it short and sweet. Two beauties from opposite sides of the planet.

Crash Nationals Part Two - Sunday’s Dramatic Turn of Events

I'm sure you've seen the jokes and internet punditry associated with last Sunday mornings abrupt cancellation and subsequent postponement of racing. If you haven't, let me give you a brief recap. Sunday is THE BIG DAY. The day that the Elites (read pros) and juniors take to the turf to decide who is the best of the best in the good ol' United States. This is the day the entire week of racing has been building toward, and the day where all the pro teams, moms and dads, and sponsors get their big payoff.

Crash Nationals Race One - Your Regularly Scheduled Bandit Cross

On Thursday of the National Cyclocross Championship in Austin, All-City sponsored Beat the Clock Cycling and the Radavist's bandit cross event, Crash Nationals. This was your regularly scheduled Bandit Cross, not to be confused with Sunday's Crash Nationals race which was put together at the eleventh hour in order to salvage a historic and potentially shitty day (which turned out awesome BTW). More on Sunday's race in the next blog post, so today we'll just soak in the stoke from what was an absolutely excellent night race.
