Tonight we booked a few flights for Walton and Rainier to race the 2014 Red Hook Criterium in Barcelona. We are looking forward to seeing all the friends, and racing alongside them in this special city. See you soon!
The Integralter handlebar, in many ways, sums up what initially brought us to work with Cinelli. Unique, progressive designs, coming from an artful place. You can look back through decades of their history, and find inspiration for the next generations. Riding track bikes on the street never needed the most modern technology offered. By scouring bike swap meets, and triathlon classifieds, we could find innovative parts that had been replaced with more modern technologies. The Intergralter was very much celebrated on the street for it’s strikingly bold look, quickly followed up by it’s functionality. Riding a road drop on the street makes a lot of sense. This bar offered a comfortable flat top, short reach, and an ergo drop, allowing several positions for riders climbing, sprinting, or cruising the city. The packaging included a very crude xerox of the cable routing, and was a treasure found included in old stock pairs. We wanted to celebrate this bar with Cinelli, and take it with us in our day. A shirt is a perfect way to remember this piece of art.
We had a busy April/May getting our shop moved into a new location around the corner from our original spot on 14th Street. We are still settling in, but wanted to share a few wide-format details from our new hangout. Come though and say hello! We will get the Tuesday AM rides ramped back up after riders get back from CMWC in Mexico this weekend.
Before opening the new shop, I wanted to get out and shoot a pair of images that shared compositions, street and dirt, and an iconic SF landmark. We made two 100-inch prints to welcome our guests. Check them out when you visit the shop!
