A trip to Circle A Cycles!



Last week we had the pleasure of visiting Providence Rhode Island a very charming New England town and home to Circle A Cycles! They were quite welcoming, friendly and hospitable and showed us the ins and outs of their incredible operation. They have a very well put together shop housed in a restored barn, in a lush little compound in a residential neighborhood in North Providence.
They have a fluid way of working that seems like play but turns out some serious machines indeed! They are capable of building or restoring almost anything in house all the way to the paint. They create a very elegant product, check them out. http://www.circleacycles.com/



These guys have the baddest custom machines to help efficiently create anything you want.



And a full service wet painting operation all neatly contained in the same building.







The shop is pure Providence in aesthetic and spirit. Vintage Americana with Victorian touches and blue collar metal mastery that can turn out true racing machines.







Thanks Chris and crew!

Best Bike Shops in NYC

Even with the ever-increasing (or declining?) number of cyclists on New York City streets these days, finding a good bike shop is like finding an expensive needle in a haughty haystack. But these recommendations will steer you in the right direction for best service, free workshops, and how to avoid the worst service money can buy.

Best for Fixed Gear: King Kog

Lovers of fixed gear bikes, those one-speed wonders that are popular with the young crowd, can rejoice at the bevy of brakeless delights at King Kog, a specialty shop in Williamsburg. King Kog has everything these minimal, practical bikes need, including toe straps, solid wheelsets, and 1/8 inch components. Moreover, they offer beautiful cycling jerseys, caps, and bags. They also sell brakes, which we recommend slapping on your bike anyway, what with that NYPD bike crackdown and all.

King Kog, 453 Graham Ave. between Meeker and Richardson, Williamsburg, (347) 689-2299

Red Hook Crit!

Last weekend hundreds of people stood out in the freezing temperatures to race and spectate this years Red Hook Criterium. We were amongst the crowd cheering on friends. We had our money on good buddy Dan Chabanov who won last year. It shook out pretty quickly, after about 3 or 4 laps (20 total) the field broke into 3 serious groups with lots of slower riders and the immediately shelled bringing up the rear. Dan was in the lead group from then til the finale, trading pulls to stay away and always looking fresh, no open mouth breathing, no sweat! Austin Horse valliantly tried to bridge to the front group solo a few times but ended up going down coming into the hairpin a bit too hot... The field was peppered with pros this year and the course was smooth and fast not technical or cobled which probably favored the racers and ruled out the messengers. By the time it was 3 laps to go it got brutally fast and most of the field left on the course except the first two groups were lapped and pulled off the course. Dan was still doing his share of the work rotating to the front coming into 2 to go as a couple of guys tried to go off the front solo but were reeled back in after less than 100 meters. The excitement built with the bell lap and then there were just three careening toward the line, Dan was in third position but all three were less than a wheel length apart meters from the line. In the split second before the line Dan threw his bike just beating Mountain Khakis pro Neil Bezbek by mere inches in one of the finest amature sprints i have ever witnessed! Track sprinter Al Barouh came third also by inches. Honorable mention goes out to our homie Chas from SF coming in in eighth position.











Come by the shop to check out the trophy! Pretty sweet!
