San Marco Mantra: First Impression

“It looks like a spaceship.” – majority of first responses I spent days staring at this saddle before I built up the courage to try it. Mainly because putting my ass onto something that looked like a spaceship is quite a daunting task.

The other morning Drew, Tyler and I went on a short ride to find some reclaimed wood for the new space next door. And as Drew stated, “we rolled in the rain to the middle of nowhere and saw almost entirely nothing.” But one good thing did come from that morning and it wasn’t that I spent the rest of the day in soggy shoes… I finally got to try out that SPACESHIP saddle.

At 1930RMB, expectations were high, but long story short, my ass thanked me. My future kids will also… probably not… thank me as well. There was no numbness and no uncomfortable wiggling around while standing up to reposition myself. To state it more technically, all was good in my nether hood. And plenty of space in that massive canyon for my junk.

China Classic: The General

The General is for those who want to dominate the road. Formed around the classic China Post delivery Frame it’s about as rugged as you can imagine. The racing green frame makes the gold detailing pop and goes super-well with the deep cut orange rims we found. We’ve kept to mudguards onboard to make this an all weather ride. The General is spacious and comfortable on the road. With short bars and high stature it has an aggressive edge. “将军”就是为那些想要在路上引起注意的人们打造的。 我们花了很大的功夫用经典的永久和凤凰车架来改造这辆车。传统的邮政绿色喷漆加上金色的贴纸还有橙色的轮组,我们还保留了挡泥板,让使用者在雨天也能保证骑行。 整车宽大的体积让骑行时更加的平稳顺畅,短燕把能让操控灵活性更好。

China Classic: The Plainview

We were so chuffed with how this build looks, we cracked open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate… and found the perfect plugs for the bar ends. The Plainview (named after Daniel Plainview from There Will Be Blood) is a sepia metallic gold custom respray of the increasingly rare double-top tube frame. Paired with all black components we finished it off with an original sprung phoenix seat and our newly stocked black fyxation cloth wrap. Freewheel in a low 46×20 gear, this is a bike built for cruising. 这台车的出现不禁让我们欢呼起来,甚至要开香槟来庆祝。 这是另外一位名叫daniel的客户来要求定制的单车。香槟色的车架以及全黑的色的配件,我们还找来酒瓶用的软木塞来做车把堵。

China Classic: Dutchboy

Dutch Boy is an old Dutch bike that we stripped, re-painted and completely re-built. Peter brought in this bike and it hadn’t been ridden in over 10 years. The wheels were bent, the chain had fallen off, and everything was rubbish. We took this piece of coal and turned it into a diamond. Complete with deep dish black rims, a coaster brake hub and all black components, the Dutch Boy is a fantastic build! 车主peter买来这台车并使用了已经超过10年的时间。轮组,链条等都已经报废。我们要将它变废为宝。 我们为车架重新做了漆,并用上一对倒刹闸轮组以及所有黑色的配件。真实梦幻般的作品。

China Classic: Lee Urban Riders

Working together with Lee Jeans for the past year in 2011, we produced five different models for their advertisement for their Urban Riders campaign. All the frames were custom painted and looked great in their shops, advertisements and videos. Ask us about how we ran into each other during their launch event on the runway. 过去的2011年我们和Lee Jeans一起工作了一段时间,我们为他的项目装了5台不同的车。 每台车都是定制的涂装,而且在他的店里、广告还有视频中都有不错的效果。

China Classic: Roy

Roy is Shanghai’s first super-transporter fixie. Built around a blue China Electric frame we’ve also sourced the rear rack with fold down platforms for luggage. This is our first female-specified frame but step-through geometry isn’t just for girls. Take a look at the locals next time you’re on the street. We’re putting a front brake on this to account for the extra payload weight. That rack has many uses. Roy是上海首辆超级运输fixie这是一款带有后货架同时两旁还有收放式支架的电蓝色车架。 这也是我们第一辆专为女式设计的车,但也不止是适合女性,它的几何设计使骑乘非常的舒适。 我们在前轮安置了刹车以确保安全。 Specification.

China Classic: Angela

Angela is one of the first step through re-builds we’ve ever done. Bright red rims, a flashy red saddle and classic swept back bars are exactly what this girl needs to cruise around town. Don’t be fooled by the front brake, this bike is both fast and smooth. Even in high heels Angela can outrun the speediest of electric scooters and taxis! Angela是我们最先改造的Step Through车型之一,鲜红的车圈和坐垫,舒适的握把,正适合女孩子在城市中骑行。 不要被前煞车给欺骗了,这款车有极佳的速度和流畅性,你甚至可以穿着高跟鞋超过快速的电动车和计程车。
