MASH 10 Year NYC Premiere & Alleycat

 

Earlier this year marked 10 years of MASH SF. They’ve been on World Tour for the new film, showing premieres, and hosting alleycat races and messenger games in cities across the world.

Next Stop: NYC

The day before the premiere, an art show was held at Deluxe Cycles.

Stoned Tone came out of a long hiatus of promoting racing to throw an old-school New York style alleycat race. Here he is at Deluxe looking like a young Basquiat

After the art show, messenger games were held under the BQE – just like they were almost 10 years ago. Skids, Footdown, Trackstands.

During an alleycat race, there are no rules, and anything can happen. Racers speed down a closed street with a tower crane and construction workers blocking the way. Naturally, racers went under the crane and didnt skip a beat.

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.
