Landshark Pursuit

 

 

Handbuilt solely for the purpose of beating the hour record at the Mexico City velodrome, this landshark screams speed. Hand painted frame and matching rear HED disc wheel with Wilis’ own HED trispoke make for a beautiful, concordant set up. Cinelli stem and LA84 bars for pursuit track racing wrapped with custom tape for aesthetics build on the bikes flavor. Adding in a Campy crankset with a 60t Sugino chainring and handpainted chain make the bike a truly stunning machine.

 

Mash SF 10yr Anniversary

We recently had the privilege of showcasing an art show for our friends from Mash SF in honor of their 10 year anniversary. To make the space art-friendly we had Will from Van Zee Sign Co. come in and paint the bike wall to install our logo as well as Mash’s. We took down the other wall to display the stunning photography and 10 year bike, as well as having Chas’ hand painted Cinelli Vigorelli frameset in a work stand for show. We hosted an open house that weekend, had a great time and got to meet a lot of really cool people. Thanks to everyone who came out!

Later that night after the open house we all headed over to the old peel sessions spot and enjoyed some mess games under the BQE. There was a foot-down, lock pickup, longest trackstand, and longest skid competition.

The following day was the Mash alleycat and movie premiere! The alleycat consisted of 6 checkpoints throughout Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn spanning around 20-25 miles total. The finish of the race was at Sky High where we had the premiere. We had two showings back to back at 7pm and 9pm. Here’s a shot from under the screen I snagged mid-movie.

Fiona’s Marinoni

Fiona’s new Marinoni is a stunning representation of elegance and grace. Hand painted by Wilis himself and Vicious Cycles, couplers and rear end spacing by Coarse Fabrications, and built up by Wilis and Brian makes this a collaborative build with talented people . This bike has a phenomenal mix of modern and classic components. 105 shifters, cranks, deraileurs, with Paul canti brakes. Brooks Cambium saddle and tape to match with the Plemons toe straps and gatorskin side walls. This bike is ready to get some miles in with Fiona on all her future travels!
