Crazy loud eccentric art pieces with two wheels rolling around town. Squid bikes are works of art whether it's set up as a fixed gear machine, an eye catching cross racer, dive bomb the corner crit smasher, or a hike into the wilderness tracklocross sender! Eliel partnered with Squid bikes three years ago to create kits that make a statement. This crew of racers are pushing the envelope of style and having a hell of a lot of fun doing it. Here's what the Squid crew has to say about who they are.
"Riding bikes is about as dumb and futile an endeavor as many other hobbies, which is to say it's worthwhile and existentially gratifying in ways that are hard to explain. Bikes are simple machines that bring deep joy. They're a way to find clarity and peace, not to mention a great way to get around.
Squid Bikes came into existence gradually, starting in the grassroots cyclocross community in Northern California. At some point a group of cyclocross miscreants started spray painting bikes in their garages, and it felt good and right. Squid Bikes is about that savory, eyebrow raising, chills down your spine good feeling when you create something and see the results. Paint your own bike, maintain your own trails, grow your community, and pass it on."
