    Rapha and RSA Films present three short films inspired by the people, places and stories of road racing. Johan Museeuw, Sean Kelly and Dario Pegoretti are celebrated in three cinematic portraits exploring the passion, history and drama of the sport. Based on a trio of story-labels originally found inside the Rapha Club Jerseys, each film brings a new translation: The intense dreamscape of Nick Livesey's ode to Johan Museeuw, Adrian Moat's tale of discovery inspired by Sean Kelly and Ben Ingham's intimate view of Dario Pegoretti in his workshop, all powerful representations of three distinct icons of road racing. It has been a privilege to work with Ridley Scott Associates and such talented friends on these films. http://www.rapha.cc/rsa-films

                In this, the final video in The Bones Project series by Alessandra Mondolfi, the project is revealed. A series of custom steel road bikes, unlike any other. _______________________ We have designed and built thousands of steel frames in our careers, and we have developed a deep respect for the material and process. The Bones Project is our opportunity to use our knowledge and unique approach to frame building to push the functional and aesthetic boundaries of the most storied material in cycling. The Bones Project exists at the intersection of manufacturing, art, and performance. It is a collaboration of designers, machinists, frame builders, and artists, most importantly the brilliantly talented local illustrator, designer, and muralist Eric Bones. The frames start with the most high tech steel bicycle tubing the world has ever seen: custom-designed, niobium-doped, progressively-butted Columbus Spirit HSS Tubing. The dropouts are designed by the infamous Peter Verdone and locally machined by Cantabridgian Mechanics. Peter took the iconic design we use for our titanium bikes and refined them specifically for steel, creating a beautifully slim, light, and strong piece of precision engineering. We will only make 22, all manufactured in June of 2014. Every one will be custom designed and built for the rider, hand-painted with pain-staking detail by Eric Bones, and then sent to renowned frame painter Jay Nutini of Circle A Cycles in Rhode Island for clear coating. We will build each bike in our shop with components carefully chosen to not only work perfectly, but also complete the visual goal of the project. These are more than just bikes, these are individual art pieces designed and built to be admired and ridden hard.
