Crankworx

Crankworx is one of the biggest, most prestigious mountain bike events in the world. This year was the 1st time there was a tour stop at Winter Park and we were honored to be involved.Winter Park commissioned us to design and fabricate the trophies for all of the events and sponsors. This worked out to 44 units. Each one was custom laser etched. The acrylic bike sprocket had to be custom fit to the thousandth of an inch because acrylic has so much variation in thickness. I think 100th of an inch would have been OK but that is what happens when one of the founders of the company is a mechanical engineer. Each wooden “T” was hand carved, dremeled and then sand blasted to raise the grain and distress it to closely resemble the Trestle logo of Winter Park’s bike zone.blog_crank1.jpg blog_crank2.jpg
