Backward Circles and Forward Thinking

By:

Sitting in the waiting room outside of the Backwards Circle warehouse I was surrounded by what seemed to be long lost treasures of Black Flys former trade show booths mixed with the standard collection of SoCal stoner art that we all know and love. After being called to the back I walked through a chain-mail curtain into a warehouse filled with enough candy coated fixies to fulfill even the most demanding of color conscious customers. If neon green or retina-burning-orange isn’t your thing they also offer some more subdued tones, including the standard black and white. Backwards Circle offers pre-configured bikes and also gives the option to fully customize your ride so that when you roll out of the shop you have exactly what you wanted. Check through the shots to see our trip to Backwards Circle and hit up backwardscircle.com find out more.

Dirty concrete floors, art supplies strewn about and a solid showing of bikes made us feel right at home

Hand painted bikes show just how far BC will go to customize their rides.

As you can see, BC is not afraid of using a bit of color.

BMX inspired forks, curved seat tube and offset seat stays give these bikes a voice amongst the converted road bikes that flood the streets.
