Stanridge Cycles // New Bike / Team Member

imageWHAT!! Dude. so. RAD!! I love how accepting Adam Eldridge is of artist collaboration work on his bad ass speed machines! The Stanridge Team is going to dominate this years Red Hook Crit! Believe that!

“Stanridge Cycles is excited to announce the arrival of Katie Arnold to the team as it heads into it’s 3rd season competing in the Red Hook Crit Series. Arnold will join previous Red Hook winner and Cat 1/Pro, Evan Murphy at the start line in NYC this weekend.

This years Red Hook Crit program began in October of last year while in Shoreditch, London visition Deathspray Custom. Ben Eine’s work on Mother London caught the eye of Stanridge cycles Owner Adam Eldridge. After returning to the states Ben was contacted and it was on. Ben hand painted both frames for the event.

This year Enve Composites, Paul Components, and Vittoria Tires have joined as new team sponsors while Endo Customs remains as the jersey maker. Riders will use a variation of the iconic Stanridge HSP MkII (pictured) during the series to showcase a team that competes at the highest level of fixed crit racing.

‘I enjoy creating bikes for this series. Having these frames used under race conditions means much more to me than hanging them on display at a bike show. They’ll get beat up, scratched and used which is perfectly fine with me’. – Adam Eldridge”

Make sure to follow along over at Stanridge Cycles for updates on this rad creation to be thrashed at RHC! Cheers!!

Stanridge x EINE – Red Hook Crit 2014

Stanrdige x Eine – Red Hook Crit 2014 from FWD on Vimeo.

Stanridge Cycles is excited to announce their collaboration with Ben EINE for the Red Hook Crit this year. EINE is a world renowned graffiti artist who has collaborated with Banksy and has work hanging in the White House. Ben will be hand painting the two iconic Stanridge High Street frames that will be raced during this years Red Hook series.

The custom bikes will be piloted by elite cyclocross racer Katie Arnold, and previous Red Hook winner Evan Murphy. Look for more from Stanridge as the bikes are done and race day approaches.

(NSFW) Quote from Ben EINE:

“The ego, it’s the only thing that drives us forward isn’t it? You know it’s a competition. If you’re not going to take it fucking seriously than why bother doing it? You know you want to be the biggest and the best, up in the most amount of places, the most amount of photographs over the fucking internet in the most amount of countries in the world… stupid. It’s just mad. We were kids. 20 years later Banksy’s up for an Oscar and I’ve got a painting in the White House. You can’t make this shit up…. It’s just fucking mad.” -EINE

This years RHC is going to take it to the next level and I’m excited to watch the Stanridge Team dominate!  Keep your eyes peeled and follow along. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
