We always enjoy the original content from God & Famous and were stoked to see Costa Mesa local and friend of the shop Brian Guzman featured in their latest photoset. Brian chose his pink LOW// custom build from his impressive bike stable and headed out to the 6th st. bridge in Downtown Los Angeles.
I spy a City Grounds sticker on the rear of the seat tube! Check out the rest of the article and more photos over on the God & Famous blog by clicking the link below.

Leader Bikes recently posted up photos of team rider Luke Binder’s Renovatio custom build. The Renovatio frameset, which was born out of a collaboration with Patrick Thames of Pedal Consumption, is seen here built up with some great components including a prototype carbon handlebar, thomson stem, H Plus Son rims and much more. Check out what Leader had to say and enjoy the photos below.
“This week we take an up close and personal look at Luke Binder’s Renovatio, which was ridden to victory in the Wolfpack Hustle Shortline Crit earlier this month. The Renovatio is a more recent addition to the Leader lineup and closely mirrors its sister frame, the Kagero. Both frames were created in collaboration with Patrick Thames of Pedal Consumption, with the Renovatio featuring a super compact track geometry and matte black finish.”
“The cockpit features a 100mm Thomson stem clamped to a radically shaped Leader prototype carbon handlebar. The bars feature a textured surface but Luke adds tape on the tops for extra grip.”
“The Renovatio frame material is subtly printed on the seat tube in black. As on the Kagero, the 7005 aluminum makes for an extremely light frame. Even with the heavy wheel setup Luke’s complete 52cm bike still weighs in at a feathery 18.1lbs.”
What do you guys think, like the build? Not a fan? Let us know in the comment section below!

Most likely you know God & Famous because they produce some of the most popular cycling gear and clothing available, but what you may not know is they have been continuously coming out with some great original content. One of our favorites was this photo feature on photographer Connor McKenzie and his ‘minty’ Bianchi Super Pista.
Shot in Brooklyn, NY during this year’s Red Hook Crit the photo feature shows off Connos’s proper Bianchi build and some great gear / accessories from popular brands such as Chrome, God & Famous and Ass Savers.
Make sure to check out the photo feature over on the God & Famous site, and be on the lookout soon for brand new G&F products to land at City Grounds!

Not only does God & Famous produce some of the most popular cycling gear and clothing, they have been slowly growing their blog with some great original content. Most recently, Kenny Kim and the team at G&F interviewed Javon of Brooklyn, NY who is most well known for his jaw dropping stable of bikes over on Pedal Room.
While short on words, the post features a full photoset of Javon in the city on his impressive 2014 Cinelli MASH Histogram build, complete with a unique front rack. Not to be outdone by his build, Javon also has some of the most sought after accessories from top brands such as MASH, Mavic and Cadence.
Make sure to check out the complete photoset over on the God & Famous blog. We are definitely looking forward to more of these features in the future!
