The Boys at Fixed Gear Classic!

The Deluxe Cycles Racing track boys just spent the weekend up in Minnesota at the NSC Velodrome for their annual Fixed Gear Classic race event to race against the nations top track racers. 

Minnesota has a very unique track with a lot of character. It’s an outdoor wooden 250m that’s been around for about 30 years. Over time some of the wood has rotted, but the community put the time and elbow grease into replacing any spent boards. The banks reach a peak of 43ยบ and are a total blast to race on. 

Mark and BJ took part in the Sprint events, while Jesse raced in the endurance omnium. Mark took 3rd in the match sprints and BJ snagged 6th overall in the Keirins after winning his qualifier. Jesse didn’t place well in his events, but took second in the backward Longest Lap after nearly crashing out into another rider. The racing was extremely high level, and an honor to be a part of. The Endurance omnium filled up to the tracks max capacity of 24 in nearly every race and had multiple huge breaks, defensive chasing, and lots of high caliber tactics. Here are some fun photos from the racing!

People came from all over to be part of it all including San Fransisco, Indiana, and BC Canada! It was a great time getting to make new friends from all over; it really felt like bike racing sleep away camp. 

We’d like to really thank Bob, Linsey, and everyone else from the NSC Velodrome for everything they did for our riders to help them come and race which including helping financially, picking up and dropping off to and from the airport, and providing dorm rooms just 20 meters from the track! Truly an impressive program you guys run and we couldn’t be more humbled to be a part of it. 

 

 

 

 

The Deluxe Boys At Track Nationals!

Mark, Evan, and BJ all made it out to Nationals for track racing in LA and had a blast. Evan and BJ got crashed out in some of their races. Check out this video of Evan hitting the wood in his Keirin.

But it’s not all bad news! Evan Took 3rd in the match sprints which landed him with a national medal! Congrats Evan! We’re super proud of you! 

Here are some more racing photos from throughout the week.

 

And some non-racing photos the boys took from their time in LA! Mark went to Disneyland with his girlfriend, BJ and his wife spent some time with his parents, and Evan got to go surfing and went to the Northwest Porsche Experience to see some sweet cars. 

 

Alex’s LOW//

Alex recently got a custom painted LOW// from us and we’re thrilled on how it came out! The frame, fork, Ritchey carbon seatpost and integrated bar/stem combo were all painted meticulously with that metallic green-blue fade by our friend Ben Falcon who’s worked with us on a few other projects. 

Built with a full Di2 Dura-Ace 9070 groupo, carbon deep section Reynolds wheels, and the full carbon Ritchey cockpit. This is a modern marvel that pays homage to classic heritage. 

Deluxe Greyscale Kit Presale

Our new kits are coming in soon, and we’re stoked! We took our team kits from this season and converted to greyscale for a simple, clean, aesthetically pleasing kit. 

These kits are made by our friends over at Endo Customs who produce everything themselves in California. After having them make our team kits, we’re excited to continue working with them. 

Presale starts today, and all sales will be shipped within six to eight weeks of order date. Preorder is available HERE.

Youssef’s LOW//

Youssef came by the shop after buying a LOW// Track bike from us not too long ago and decided he loved it so much he wanted to build up another. Here’s his sweet LOW// CX built to shred roads. With a SRAM Force 1x groupo, Easton carbon cockpit and wheels, this machine is solid. 

Youssef is a solid dude who just recently moved to NYC. Welcome to empire city man, come by the shop whenever!
