New at City Grounds is Crew Bike Co., an urban cycling brand based out of Southern California.

Using that knowledge base, Crew has set out with the goal to create high quality, performance products at a very competitive price.
Crew Bike Co. has come out strong with the District Track Frame, a classic style aluminum track frame made out of lightweight 6061 aluminum and designed with true track geometry. The District frame is available now for only $149.00 plus FREE shipping in four color options: matte black, gloss white, gunmetal or orange. Crew Bike Co. is also offering a sweet deal with the District as a frameset pro kit for $399.00 (also with free shipping!) which includes the District Frame and top of the line Crew parts and carbon components.

The good people over at Cinelli Winged Store did a quick interview recently with Team Cinelli Chrome rider Kelli Samuelson about her Cinelli Vigorosa highlighting it’s performance in the rugged conditions of the Red Hook Crit, check out the excerpt below and hit the link at the bottom to see the full article.
“When I first got my Cinelli Vigorosa I was anxious to get it built and to see what it could do. I had been doing a lot of pursuit riding on the track so i was really excited to see that the Vigorosa could not only perform well in fixed crits but also just as stiff and responsive on the track.”
“In New York the rain came and made for an interesting race. I wasn’t worried about the handling of the Vigorosa at all. Even in the conditions when I jumped the bike jumped. Having a stiff frame on a course like Red Hook is important, the ability to get the response when sprinting out of the hairpins is key. I usually run 2 different size bikes, one for pursuit and one for fixed crits, with the Cinelli i can run the same bike, the geometry is versatile for both sprinting and pursuit.”
“Look for Kelli and her Vigorosa, as well with Team Cinelli Chrome this Summer competing in Fixed Gear Crits across the US and Europe. Some of the upcoming races include: Wolfpack Crit in Los Angeles July 12th, Red Hook Crit Barcelona August 30th, and Red Hook Crit Milano October 11th.”
