Specialized Tri-Spoke

Yes, Yes, No thanks

Here my friends are the new entry level track bikes.
One of them doesn't belong, try and figure it out.

The Fuji has the styling of a Pista Concept and a LOOK, I love it.
Can't wait to see these in the shops.


gnarly tee shirt

So my girlfriend made me a tee shirt for my birthday, a hand sketched fixed gear with a bossy front wheel printed on the tee. It's a 5 spoke representing the color wheel, this is because for the life of me I can't remember it and I'm in art school. An awesome shirt and in limited quantities, one!


Dear friends

Unfortunately, in the weeks to come, posts will be very few and far in between, for I will be moving to go to art school this friday. Hope you enjoi'd my posts. -Dave


Take a look at the Trek Districts new drivetrain. I suppose if they are even considering using a belt drive, this one must work well enough. I doubt that one of those can hold up to everyday skidding of a regular track bike, but this isn't necessarily a track bike, I just had high hopes for it.

EAI BareKnuckle. He gots dat purp stuff.



I fixed it

I like Cinelli Vigorelli's, don't get me wrong, but when I saw this kids tags, it pissed me off. You're color coordinating makes me sick. I hope your riding ability equals that outlandish whip.

DIY reversible top tube pad

First, I started with an existing top tube pad as my base. Then I cut two tubes in half and washed the insides out(there is a powder substance on the inside). After cutting them to the right sizes, I made a weave pattern.
I used pins to keep them together during sewing.
I only sewed vertical lines. Sewing horizontal with the weave is unnecessary, but would make your pad extra brawny, roar!
Pinned and sewed velcro on the end of each side.
You may have to have your bike present in order to get the right positioning of the velcro. I intended on using a foam pad underneath, but it is definitely not required. In the end, you may find that you must trim excess rubber off and re-sew a side.

( I stiched the edges to keep them from fraying, but it's rubber so that happening is doubtful...but it looks classy)

DIY seat lock

Start with an old chain and tube
measure how many links you will need
Use your chain tool to adjust your chain to the right length.
Cut your tube to match the chain length.
Then insert the chain and sew shut.
(I chose to sew tightly incase i cut the excess off later)

close up of chain in tube.
Tube cut and sewn to cover exposed part of chain.
Sew the velcro accordingly.

Final product mounted on bike.
For best results, slide the cover piece up under the saddle rails.
