But more importantly, she is one stellar person, a wonderful spokesperson for the sport and for Naked Bicycles. Congratulations Mical!!!

]]> News Addition: SingleSpeed CX World Championships 2015 in Victoria http://nakedbicycles.com/gallery/singlespeed-cx-world-championships-2015-in-victoria/2015/12/01 http://nakedbicycles.com/gallery/singlespeed-cx-world-championships-2015-in-victoria/2015/12/01 Tue, 01 Dec 2015 22:43:57 +0000 The craziness that is the SingleSpeed CycloCross World Championships came out in full form in Victoria a week ago. It’s so hard to recount everything thing that happened on that weekend. It may be because of the shots, or maybe the safety meetings, or perhaps a concussion. It is most excellently summed up by  The Hole Shot, “Descent into Madness”. Naked Bicycles represented. Naked Factory Racer,  Mical Dyck, claimed golden bikini in the Women’s race committing herself to a tattoo that lasts a lifetime. A gaggle of Quadrites joined in for the merryment. We sponsored the event by giving away a custom Naked frame at a bar on Sunday night. Naked Factory Racers Parker Bloom, Halldor Gunnarsson, and Terry McKall were instrumental in helping Drew MacKenzie (and many others) put on this awesome event.  Excellent event! Thankyou thankyou !!!

Ever since picking up this bike, I think he’s rode every day at least 2x. He’ll phone up, say he’s headed out for a quick rip on the Quadra trails, then we’ll find out he did a double or even triple header that day. Must be love! Up to this point, all the other mountain bikes he’s ridden have been too small. About Dre’s bike: it’s a 29+ 1×11 steel tig welded hardtail mtb. Internal cable routing. 2 standard water bottle mounts. Paragon rocker dropouts. Solid lego colour base. FOX 34 talas 140mm fork. XTR parts. Raceface parts. Chris King bling. RockShox dropper post. Industry Nine custom Torch wheelset. Tubeless. Chupacabra/Dirt Wizard 3.0″ tires.
