    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

So, when our pals at Red Bull asked us if we would, once again, join them for their annual Fixed Gear Free Style event, we answered  "Hell yes we will!"

  • Coveted Jersey 2014: Death Spray Custom

    2014 Coveted Jersey 2014 Chrome Coveted Jersey designed by Death Spray Custom

    The Coveted Jersey can’t be purchased. You must win a race to own one. Have the skills; reap the reward. Wear it with pride.

Battles are fought between friends and short cuts found by the canny. Beers are drank and road rash mended. Street racing is rad. For those with the taste for camaraderie and glory there is no substitute. Continue reading
