garrett_chow On the top of the Top Tube, the 7 color blocks represent the 7 eras of Mavic's logos' lineage. 1923 to the present. While this timeline does not extend to 1889, and the company's inception, the 4 additional color blocks on the bike's rear-triangle reference the company's 11 (7+4=11) innovation milestones, extending from: 1) 1889 Idoux & Chanel begin manufacturing bike parts, including the Apron Mudguard; 2) 1923 first Mavic logo and trademark, and manufacture of rims, mudguard, and handlebars; 3) 1934 750 grams Duralumin rim first made: Magne wins TdF by 27 minutes; 4) 1973 first fiberglass lenticular wheel, and neutral support; 5) 1975 anodized rims; 6) 1975 double hook bridged rims for high-pressure tires; 7) 1979 Le Tour Mavic complete system; 8) 1997 Helium Wheels; 9) 1993 ZMS Electronic Derailleur; 10) 1999 fore drilling process on Crossmax and Ksyrium; 11) 2012 CX01 Technology Wheel and Tire System. Joyeux anniversaire, Mavic! 3w

garrett_chow @Argonautcycles and @chadmoore of Mavic asked me to design a bike commemorating 125 years of the company's contributions to cycling. This is the result. @johnprolly will have a full run-down on the design at #theradavist in a few. Thank you for the opportunity guys. Chad, enjoy your new bike! 3w
  •   bczd @garrett_chow I've been wondering since I've seen more than a handful of this bike today. What was be rationale behind deciding to stop the yellow on the tubes? Wouldn't it have been most holistic to stretch it and fuse at the front of the HT so only the inner sides of the TT/DT are black? Was it because it's clean cuts at the seat cluster and BB as well? Just curious to know! 😬 3w

garrett_chow Daniel, back from his victory in the Crit at Nationals in Madison, with bottle artwork I drew up for him. @Dholly_wood's going for the W at the Pro Crit Nationals in September --that'd be an amazing way to wrap up one hell of a season! 3w

garrett_chow HIT THE GROUND RUNNING. "Finding yourself in a situation that is fast-paced, and physically overwhelming. Often that feeling is heighted by a sense of mass confusion. The term was first coined to describe the D-Day invasion of World War 2 when Allied ships inflitrated Nazi-held shores, and infantry troops literally had to "hit the ground running", to keep from getting shot." And/Or: "Arriving home from the airport from an early-morning flight from Nationals in Madison, Wisconsin where @waltonbrush took third place in the Elite Road Race; to then immediately hopping back on the bike the same afternoon." @shapirothehero's #noodledude salutes you, sir 3w

garrett_chow 99% of the bikes you'll see on this feed are bikes I've designed, or personal bikes. 1% however, may be bike porn, straight-up. Yikes! Also: fuck the police. 2mon
