Following up on an awesome announcement from Cinelli and Chrome, we have the limited edition Cinelli Vigorelli Red Hook Crit frame! This is looking great and will probably ride even better. I’ve always been a fan of 7005 series aluminum; pair that with Cinelli‘s track geo and you’ve got yourself a real shred sled.
A super limited custom made series of 20 pieces only now gets available worldwide to celebrate the uprising diffusion of track-bikes criteriums and the incredible culture and mindstyle they represent.

Ohio based 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 visiting Death Spray 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 Custom 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, Owner of Stanridge Cycles.
Damn, this is gonna be something else! Can’t wait to see what Stanridge & EINE come up with.
Stanridge Cycles is excited to announce our 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.
If you were at the Red Hook Crit last year, you’ll remember Eric Corriel‘s projected animation on a warehouse wall. This year he expanded upon the concept by projecting an his art on moving subjects as opposed to a static canvas; combining the rider’s movements and abstract elements to make a very unique and engaging installation. See how it all came together above and be sure to check out more of Eric’s work while you’re at it.
As mentioned in the last post, Hunt and I were down at the Red Hook Crit this past weekend. I still can’t get over how much fun the event was. Plus, the weather Saturday was amazing; warm, sunny and filled with fast bikes. It definitely cooled down once the sun set though. But, after living in Vermont for a while I’ve gotten used to packing extra layers along with a pair of gloves; so I was all set.
The main event was insane. The gates were lined with spectators, the course was technical and there some of the fastest riders racing. Neil Bezdek was slaying and ended up taking home the win, with Evan Murphy and Walton Brush following in second and third. Here’s the full list of Red Hook Crit results. Check out a bunch more narrated photos below.
As I mentioned earlier, Hunt and I were down in the city over the weekend catching up with some old friends and checking out the Red Hook Crit. My longtime buddy Josh was overly hospitable, as always, and let us crash at his one bedroom apartment along with Marc and Chas who were out to race from California.
The weekend was a blast. I saw a few old friends that I hadn’t seen in at least seven years and shot a bunch of photos of the race. It was also my Country Road Bob’s first trip to the big city, although I’d been kicking myself for not bringing the track bike as I usually do. Where are the photos you ask? Well, I’m exhausted to be honest, and just got around to sorting/editing them last night. We got a bit of a late start on the road Sunday and didn’t end up in Burlington until after 2 am – so yesterday I was barely functioning by the end of the work day. Stay tuned for those photos this evening. In the mean time, here’s a little Instagram snap of Chas, Josh and Marc as we were heading out to Red Hook for the pre- qualifiers.
