New Velo Hangar kits!

Velo Hangar :: Squadra Online Store!


It’s been a long process designing this new kit. Yes the layout is the same.. That’s on purpose. I try to keep the Pantone’s the same so you can mix and match. Continuity and simplicity are very important to me but I wanted this one to stand out (or not for that matter). It’s toned down. It’s mostly outlines. I named it “neon” for design purposes, 1. So we could distinguish it in Squadras system and 2. Because it looks like a neon sign to me. I hope you like it…

For men’s jersey’s we are offering them in 3 different cuts:

Team-
This is the same cut as our standard gray kit. Not baggy but also not racer cut (see super tight)

Pro-
This is the same as last year’s race kit, the black kit with the print all over in the background. Pro jersey’s have a mesh back and a super light Lycra everywhere else. The White Limited Issue jersey’s were Pro cut as well.

Club-
Club cut is new for us. I original produced this cut for us “man sized” riders that wanted a jersey that had a little more room to breathe. All sizes are available in this one but its a very casual fit.

Womens jerseys are available in Pro only.

Bib shorts are available in 2 cuts, Team cut & Pro cut. Womens bibs will be Pro only. this year we are also offering a matching Wind Vest & Arm Warmers.

These kits will only be available for preorder online at velohangar.ridesquadra.com. The store will be open for 3 weeks ending Monday July 7th so don’t procrastinate!!

The Maryland flag is ghost printed in the background. The kit is available in Men’s & Women’s and arm warmer’s plus knee warmer’s. Proceeds go to help Elliot in his racing season (entrance fees, transportation, etc) Go to http://elliot.ridesquadra.com/

GoPro visits Velo Hangar…

GoPro contacted us wanting to film a bike being built from the frame up. Of course the answer was yes, we love building bikes! The bike in question is Todd Ballard’s 2014 Specialized Tarmac SL4 with Shimano Dura Ace 11s. Great build, great vid & a great time! Todd makes an appearance at the end riding up to Double Peak Park in San Marcos, CA.

Thanks to everyone at GoPro, Specialized & Shimano for making this happen!

Limited Edition Velo Hangar Jersey

​It that time of year again… We have designed a new LE jersey, this time its based off our “Team” gear (aka the gray kit). The pantones have stayed the same so this jersey will match any of our previous jersey, bibs & accessories. Limited to 50 units these won’t last long. They will only be available online. Type velohangar.ridesquadra.com into your browser.

I have added our gray bib to the online shop so if you want a complete kit that’s the ticket. The jersey is also available in both of Squadra’s fabrics, their Team and Pro. Team is the standard fit whereas Pro is the aero race fit (like last years Black VH kit and the ellusive White Jersey).

The store will be open till November 10th. They make great Holiday presents….

Of Steel

This weekend I am traveling north to pick up my Marcelo. A piece of tangible art that I have wanted to own/ride for years. Ordered a year ago, built to my sizing, painted in a one of a kind motif… This is a very special trip.

GiveMe3 Campaign…

This message is on behalf of our friends at the California Bicycle Coalition.

GiveMe3 is CalBike’s campaign to get drivers to give a safe three feet of clearance when passing a bicyclist. Assembly Bill 1371 amends the Vehicle Code to specify three feet as the safe passing distance. Twenty-one other states have enacted similar legislation. Tell Governor Brown it’s time California do the same!

Over forty percent of fatal bike crashes are caused by motorists passing unsafely. And yet, Governor Brown vetoed our previous two “3 foot” bills. With your help today, the third time could be the charm. Please send this email urging Governor Jerry Brown to sign AB 1371, and require California drivers to give a safe distance when they pass you on your bicycle. 

Thank you for your help putting grassroots pressure on Governor Brown today to make our streets safer for us all.
