The Street at the Red Hook Crit!

Thanks for the heads up John!

It’s less about the build and more about the paint…

and that’s why this is a non-drive-side photo!

If the name Caroline Pauleau sounds familiar, it’s because you saw this video! And if you’d like to keep seeing these videos…I’d highly suggest heading over HERE and giving the Don’t Do Crew a boost. I know I want the videos to keep coming, can’t wait to see what they come up with for last weekends races!

A damp spin through Brooklyn…

NYTimesRedHookCrit

If you looked up through the heavy rain Saturday in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, you could just make out the silhouettes of its industrial landscape: warehouses, dock cranes, factory chimneys, even the barely discernible Statue of Liberty. If you looked left or right between umbrellas, you could see beards, tattoos, cow bells and colorful caps with inadequate brims. If you looked down, you could see drops of blood in some rain puddles. And if you blinked, well, you would have missed the point: ridiculously fast, brakeless, fixed-gear bike racing.

Joshua Bright slayed this photos-set, I’d definitely take a look!

It must be a Radavist kind of day!

Or maybe it’s just the second day of Radavism and I’m just so very excited for one of my best friends and his new website. As most of you probably already know, Prolly Is Not Probably is no longer and the Radavist has cometh! I look forward to contributing to the Radavist lifestyle and mind-set, but what I look forward to most, is watching this community grow. A community that will help change the Bicycle Industry forever, it is our time and John and friends are going to prove that!

For almost ten years, Prolly is Not Probably has been one man’s voice. One person’s take on the ever-expanding world of cycling. Over the past few years, I’ve really struggled with the identity of the site. It may not be evident to you, the readership, but I’ve been conflicted for a long time.

When I finally chose to rename and rebrand PiNP, I had to come up with a name that I felt fit the tone, content and projection of where I saw cycling going for myself, as well as the readership. It needed a color and a mascot, or spirit animal that had to still look metal (right?)

THE RADAVIST!

Two Track Bike galleries on the front page, looks like John’s new site should be called the Trackavist!

Dan Chabanov is one of the first people I knew who transitioned from a cocky bike messenger to a less cocky, more mature professional bike racer. His perspective is unique, especially at the Red Hook Crit, because, you know, he won it a few times.

I reached out to Dan to lead into the Tales from the 2014 Red Hook Crit series here on the Radavist. Below you’ll find his report.
