Our latest VH Athlete Team kit… Introducing Katie Araujo’s 2015 clothing!

FullSizeRender 2

When Katie approached me about designing a kit for her 2015 Season I mediately had a couple designs come to mind. We decided that “Simple & Clean” would be the theme. Navy base was a gimme since the last VH design was Navy and the response was amazing. I am very proud of this design and I think we nailed the theme. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! The fit for the jerseys & bibs are Squadra’s top of the line Pro kit. This is a race fit (read tight).

Thanks to Katie’s personal sponsors for helping her this year! Included on the kit are WD-40 Bike, Skratch Labs, Grimpeur Bros Coffee as well as Velo Hangar.

The kits are available to the public. All the proceeds go to Katie for her 2015 Road & MTB season. Go to to preorder your kit! Online store closes 4/20 so hurry before the order closes.

Prices are as follows:

Jerseys are $135, Bibs are $140, Arm Warmers are $35 & Knee Warmers are $35.

2015 Matt Bigos/Nitro Circus/VH kit preorder…

Matt Bigos’ 2015 race kit is now available for preorder at!! This is one of my favorite designs so far. Matt had one request that the bibs were black. Easy. From there I sketched out a few ideas. The one I went with is a fade. I haven’t seen too many people use a fade and to make it a little more special I made the the fading my logo. Turned out awesome. As far as the colors go, Matt wanted the Powerbar on the shoulders and it really popped off light blue. All of Matt’s sponsors for 2015 have pretty complicated logo’s so I didn’t add another VH logo other than the fade. I think it really turned out well. The online store for preorder will be open for 3 weeks starting today at ,Jersey’s are $90 Bib shorts are $125 Speedsuits are $175 Armwarmers are $35 Thanks to Zach at Squadra for helping realize this design. He’s super easy to work with and has a good eye for color. Thanks also to Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus, Powerbar, Engine Ice and Oakley for supporting Matt again this year.

Handlebar Mustache & Velo Hangar Collab

IMG_2792                             IMG_2793

I met Brett and Ashley Richards a couple years back at Interbike and immediately loved them. You know when you meet someone for the first time and it clicks, you think to yourself “I could totally hang out with these two”. With our likeminded approach to Social Media, complete passion of all things cycling and their attention to detail, I thought they would be a great group to team up with. I mentioned that we should do a collar t-shirt. A year later the T hit the shelves and didn’t last long, it was a hit! So we decided to join forces again and design a jersey/bib combo. They picked Army Green as the base color (good choice). I’ve always loved the combo of army green and light blue so I was all in when I heard about green. I hope you enjoy the design!

Jersey’s are $100 and bibs are $125

The online store will be open till 12/28 so you can add this kit to your christmas list!

VH Navy kits are available for preorder!

Back after major demand!! This kit has been a huge hit. I’m so happy, this took awhile to design and get just right. Thanks to Zach at Squadra for helping me sort it out. I have added a wind jacket, featuring black mesh segments on the back and reflective piping. I also have added knee warmers to the store.

Store will be open till 9/28, delivery will be around 6 weeks





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:

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

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 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 The store will be open for 3 weeks ending Monday July 7th so don’t procrastinate!!

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!

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.
