Deluxe Cycles neutral support at the Lucarelli & Castaldi 6 Days of Kissena.

Opening weekend of the Lucarelli & Castaldi 6 Days of Kissena p/b Affinity is in the books. We had the privilege to host Deluxe Cycles as our weekends feature sponsor for prizes, and also for their on sight neutral support.

As a racer this is paramount, especially during opening weekend. We all forget a chain ring bolt, pump, or to resolve that creaking noise coming from your stem. Fortunately the boys at Deluxe were there all weekend to lend a hand and also a friendly chat about their shop and all things bike related.

Many thanks to Wilis, Tijon, Jesse and Deluxe for helping make opening weekend at the Kissena velodrome such a success!

Puncheur T shirts.

Puncheur: Rider capable of frequent attacks. ⠀

In Road cycling, these riders have explosive speed and use it on short, but steep gradients with sudden attacks. They can trouble the sprinters but have the staying power to keep up with the top climbers for a considerable distance.⠀

$20.00 with a pack of die cut stickers. Buy here.

When your holder doesn't pay attention...

A wild moment at yesterday's Track Provincial Championships at the Mattamy Velodrome in Canada... 3 of our Deluxe Cycles team mates and #kieranleahy got caught up in a pretty big mishap.

The holder who was far left did not sufficiently hold up BJ Olson, then well you can see what happened.

A (not so) Lo Pro...

A few years back, Karl Wiberg copped a L Lo Pro... the problem, the top tube was smashed in a wreck.

He decided that the life of this Lo Pro wassn't over, so he replaced the top tube in the most brilliant way, by making it horizontal. Meet the first and only non sloping Affinity Lo Pro... we f'ing love it. Thanks for sharing and rad bike man!

Deluxe Cycles goes rally spec with the Affinity Anthem.

Deluxe Cycles is paying homage to the legendary Martini Rally Racing machines by producing a full size run of custom painted Affinity Anthem track frame sets available now on their web store.

Deluxe Cycles owner Wilis Johnson has rally racing in his blood... as a kid his mom raced BMW's and Porsche’s in the Pacific Northwest during the 80's. It goes with out saying that Wilis' favorite team was Martini.

Drawing inspiration from the Martini race cars and shop side memorabilia, Deluxe has taken the rally theme and merged it with cycling culture.

Check out these killer custom Anthems, and also head over to their website for a full line up of Martini themed soft goods including T's, hoodies, cycling kits and more!

Also if your in Brooklyn this Friday come to Deluxe Cycles for the Martini launch party.
