Spin On These Fat Boys

Life's too short to ride dull boring wheels. But with Fat Boy Rim you can have it all: Effortless speed. Gut wrenching grip. Incredible comfort. Thanks to super wide aero profiles these Fat Boys from Spin Industries are a whole lot more wheel for your money. Making great wheels is time consuming work. So we invest a good deal of ours to make each one by hand. From start to finish, with passion and precision, right here in our Speed Shop in the heart of England. But with every wheel we make there's just this one single rider we've got in mind. And it's You! Ready to Spin On These?

Thanks for the terrific images Caro, and thanks to all the fast boys & girls who sailed their #FatBoys through the deluge.

But here’s some fun in the sun - the day before the rain came down.

Growing up, in 1992, aged 20, there was a semi dreadful song by the Spin Doctors called 'Two Princes'. I call it semi dreadful as it was ploddy at best and one of those songs that gets into the public domain and becomes a sleeper hit.

THE FASTEST RACE WHEELS?

Are these the fastest bike wheels?! Huge thanks to Drew from SPIN for kitting me out before London-Paris on Thursday. It's gonna be an awesome ride!

On Saturday Minime & me got up extra early, climbed into the wagon and made our way to the Big Smoke, armed with a full lock ‘n’ load of custom #FatBoys ready to rumble.

We met up with a host of friends who’d journeyed from near and far, old and new. We drank a lot of coffee and maybe even a ginger beer or two.

We watched in awe as the man himself, Alec Briggs wheelied across the line to take the men’s fixed crit just ahead of Cinelli Chrome’s Ignazio Moser, IRD’s Alessandro Mariani, R3VO Racing’s William Lewis and a whole lotta fast and strong dudes. Fixed Pott’s super stylin’ Eike Haumann got caught by an early crash but rode home fast & solo anyway, as the re-start didn’t want to wait.

The women’s fixed crit was also marred by crashes and re-started with just 5 laps remaining. Jasmine Dotti took the win with an impressive sprint ahead of a super strong field over some crazy last laps, just pipping Jo Smith, Hayley Edwards and Juliet Elliott to the flag.

My mate Claudio di Santo of Cykeln Divisione Corse flew over from Firenze with his bronzed & be-muscled band of brothers to put on a great show right from the gun in the Men’s Elite road race. Big thanks to Cykeln’s Massimo Piacca Bacci for the awesome additional photos.

In short, we had a two-wheeled blast. Congratulations to Rapha for staging such a wonderful festival of speed, bikes, beer and friends, all right in the heart of the City.

Red Hook Crit : Brooklyn No.10

Where to start? I think I'll actually start by saying that limiting Red Hook Crit to a race is incredibly reductive. The Crit is an amazing event that brings people from all horizons together for almost 5 days.
