Affinity x Endo Customs


Jason sent this over about Affinity’s new partnership with Endo Customs for this season! Stoked to see these great companies work together!!!

As most of you know, the Affinity squad recently headed to Puerto Rico for the Fijate Festival. And while most were taking in the sites after the racing, our Dutch pro Patrick Kos took an excursion to the Aguadilla Velodrome and got in a solid work out… he also rocked his new team edition skin suit by Endo Customs.

What makes Endo Customs the best is that they craft all their suits in their small workshop in downtown Los Angeles, handling all the printing, cutting and sewing in house and source only the most premium quality fabrics and materials.

Our Endo Customs X Affinity suit features …

- Italian engineered fabric from M.I.T.I.
- Highly abrasion-resistant fabric with MITITECH high compression
technology, featuring 50+SPF/UPF
- Cytech EIT Carbonium COMP HP Chamois – Laser cut leg band fabric with integrated grip

Affinity is proud to announce our partnership with Endo Customs. These guys only take on select projects every year, so look out for great things to come in the coming months.

Affinity x Raekwon: Rebuild NYC


Our friends and Supporters, Affinity Cycles have teamed up Reakwon the Chef to help aid those affected by Hurricane Sandy. This is pretty amazing and I hope the builds go for a pretty penny. Good work guys. Wu-tang is for everyone.

Details:

Affinity and Raekwon are working in conjunction wit Ride4NY, a New York City based cycling initiative formed with the intent to raise awareness, fundraising, rebuilding strategies for those hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. Ride4NY will be hosting a group ride this upcoming Saturday December 15th. More details to follow about the group ride. To register for the event, visit the Ride4NY website or on facebook at Ride4NY.

The bikes are being auctioned on Ebay beginning today, Monday December 10th and will end on Friday morning December 14th. All proceeds raised from each bike will go directly to the families directly affected by the storm in Staten Island, Redhook, Coney Island and Rockaway Beach.

Affinity Cycles and Raekwon from the Wu Tang Clan have come together to design 3 custom bikes to be auctioned off to aid those hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. In typical Wu Tang black and yellow, these bikes feature some of New York Cities hardest hit areas, Staten Island, Rockaway, Red Hook and Coney Island.

In celebration of Ride4NY Raekwon is hosting a benefit concert this Thursday December 13th in Brooklyn at Jaguars 3 located at 225 47th St. betw. 2nd and 3rd ave.

Check out the bikes here, New York City, Staten Island, and Rockaway.

The frame set is an Affinity Kissena with custom 88mm carbon rims hand laced to Gran Compe hubs. The winner can choose either tubular or clincher rims. Parts list includes, Affinity R/T crank set, Truvativ bb, Tange track bars, Thomson stem and seat post, All City track grips, Fizik Arione saddle, FSA headset, Conti tires, Mks pedals and clips, Toshi double straps.

This is a 5 day no reserve auction. Since this is a custom bike, the winner will choose their size Affinity Kissena frame, then the bike will be sent out for paint. Please expect 2 weeks to 1 month for paint and assembly. There will only be 3 of these bikes made, each is unique in its own right.

Hurricane Sandy hit New York City a little over a month ago, the majority of Rockaway and the hardest hit area of Staten Island are still with out power. We will be distributing the funds through grass roots relief efforts on Staten Island and Rockaway in the form of pre paid credit cards. Members of Ride4NY, Affinity and Raekwon will be hand delivering these pre paid credit cards door to door shortly after the auction, just in time for the holiday season.

If you’re in or around New York City this week, go to Ride4NY.org to register for the group ride, and be there this Thursday in Brooklyn for the benefit concert.
