    Cutters ball (2)

    The 6th Annual Cutter's Ball and 2nd Annual Shop Bike Shootout are upon us. If you've never had the pleasure of attending the Cutter's Ball, it's a party thrown by Handsome Cycles proprietors Jesse Erickson and Ben Morrison in conjunction with One on One Bicycle Studio while much of the cycling industry is in Minneapolis for the Frost Bike trade show. Last year, the Handsome Boys and One on One let us crash with the very first Shop Bike Shootout. What's a Shop Bike Shootout? Well friend, we're glad you asked:

    A few months ago, Chrome took over the lease at Handsome Cycles, so there's a new name on the door, but the partying and inevitable debauchery will continue. Throw on your coveralls and chopper mitts and stop by our MPLS HUB and One on One for the best Cutter's Ball and Shop Bike Shootout yet!

Three days of motorcycles, mini bike races, friends and Dirty Needles ... Embroidery that is. Continue reading

    There is something to be said about the kind of person who competes merely for glory, and that something is "bad ass". There were no points or promise of a hefty purse, just mad street cred for the victor. Our friends at MotoFish opened a coffee bar in our Chrome Seattle HUB and we welcomed them into our hearts with a night of friendly competition; a night of Sprint Wrestle.

    After we spent a week and a half of getting settled into our new Chrome MPLS HUB, we sent out word to the locals that it was time to christen our new spot with a party ... a party that would leave eyes crossed and ears ringing. We knew we had to come proper. The people in the Minnesota rage, so we got enough beer to put down an elephant and enough tacos to feed a small village or enough tacos to feed an elephant and enough beer for a small village. Either one works. Continue reading
