Street Artist hit the Street. Stanridge Cycles x EINE for Red Hook Crit No.7

Street artists and frame builders have had a symbiotic relationship for a while now. Remember Toronto’s La Carrera’s Shop? They collaborated with graffiti artists Futura 2000 and Stash along with Italian legend Colnago in 2007:

Then in 2009, The OBEY guy, Shepard Fairy designed a Tour de France Trek for some guy named Lance:

Obviously this is an extension of urban street culture meshing with the fixed gear & messenger urban sports scenes. I mean if your going to paint a frame…

So now Stanridge Cycles, Ohio based, bicycle maker has teamed up with UK street artist Ben EINE for an event that takes place on the streets the 2014 Red Hook Crit.

EINE is best known for making block letters in various fonts:
