Thing Of Beauty: Fixed Crit Bike Gets Custom Graffiti

Now a global phenomenon, the Red Hook Crit series celebrates its Brooklyn roots with a stunning team bike design based on New York’s famous street art.

Watch Specialized apparel designer McKenzie Sampson create drool-worthy paint splashes and meticulous hidden illustrations all over team Allez Allez / Specialized skinsuits, shoes, helmets, and bikes.

Entering its eighth year, the Red Hook Crit, which began as a standalone race on the streets of New York, is now a four-race, traveling series that pits brakeless, gearless bicycles and riders against one another on a closed street course.

The series kicks off in Brooklyn, with those gorgeous bikes and kits, before traveling to London, Barcelona, and Milano this summer.
