Tilt/Shift

I just saw this shot by Matt Lingo over at FGSwitzerland. I am inclined to agree with the comment about tilt shift effects but this is a real nice example...

Outlier Spring

Just spotted Outlier's spring collection over at Tracko. As ever, some quality stuff. This merino tee looks rad but comes in at a fairly hefty $75 (which would probably work out as about £75 given how bike parts/clothing seems to be priced). Go check out more here.

Dedicato a Vanni Pettenella



I received an email from a guy named Mario today:

"Vanni Pettenella was a teacher for me… on bikes, fixed and more. I captured some video from a tape he give me about 1964 olympic games and about one Ovomaltina tv spot he did.

It’ s a way to remember him."

He has a Youtube channel full of vintage track action - well worth a watch and an excellent way to commemorate a great rider. Good work Mario - Go check it out...

Lance is Big...



This is some cheesy shit. Reminds me of this, which is much better...

Frame Part 3



[FRAME] Chapter Three from FLWRIDER tv on Vimeo.

Something a little different from Flwrider this time:

For the third chapter in our [FRAME] bi-weekly interviews series, we headed up to the north part of Hong Kong to visit a slightly different retailer focusing his efforts on putting more people on pedal powered transport.

In a slightly more cycling orientated area of Hong Kong, along one of the more well known cycling routes here, is Velocity Racers, a shop that sells the not so obvious form of personal transport that is a recumbent bike. When we found out you could get up to speeds of 100km/h much easier than a conventional road bike, we had to find out more about it.

We met up with Corbett Rowell who has a background in engineering, runs and owns Velocity Racers, about how he got involved with this type of bike, riding around with one and his mission with opening the only recumbent bike shop in Hong Kong and China. Touring the shop, we got to see some real amazing pieces of engineering which we get Corbett to go through and explain the engineering behind the bikes and how they manage to get up to those crazy speeds.

Thanks Flwrider

Thanks to the guys at Flwrider for the stickers, gave some out on saturday - this one on my bike has seen hella rain already!

Belk.

The guys at Belk bags have been getting their work on recently. New products and new shots up on flickr. The XL pictured here looks pretty damn good and there's always the Backpack if you're a bit of a two strap jack.

Made in Great Britain. Get in touch with the guys via the site if you are interested in their stuff...

Scenic Sprints

Footage from this has been popping up all over the web. Looked like a sterling day. As ever Ty from TheFootdown has a full report with pictures and a bonus fear/skid vid. Go check it...

Vans/Carhartt Era

Some nice natural palette Era for this summer. Suede and ripstop should be pretty resilient to cage/pedal batterings...

2&21 are good

Just read over at Prolly about these nice info graphics by 2&21 for Good magazine. Always stoked to see some nice limited colour printwork going down....

Neek 180


EFG's Neek getting sideways on his way to getting backwards.

Fyxation Track Grips

Now I know these have been on pretty much every blog this week but as someone took the time to email me some info, I thought it'd be nice to post them up. Featuring the same grip pattern as the Fyxation tyres, and available in skinny track grip (pictured) or mushroomed BMX. Not sure on UK stockists yet...

Leader TRK 2

Gussets aint pretty but I guess they work. Built in chain tug is a winner for sure.

Strength



John Cooke
, the man behind a lot of the ESB frames has hooked up LTS boy Chicken after he snapped his frame at the 14 bike co party. I've got a feeling that this one isn't going to budge..

Nike Loopwheeler Cycling hood

Maybe the fact that it has those 'cycling' pockets on the back is enough of an excuse (to myself) for me to buy one of these. so dope. via Tracko

SF Sprints

I little out of the way for me but if you can make it down...

Worth mentioning, if anyone has a bike event going down, especially UK based I'd be happy to post up some info. Email deets at the top...

Danny McAskill making it all look effortless again!

Starts today

BBC have some red button coverage going on from around 5 today. Can we bring it again?

Feather Cycles



Jammy was heading over to York on Sunday, so I tagged along for the ride and just so happened that I had my camera equipment with me so I decided to make a simple little edit of the goings on at Feather Cycles. Nothing fancy, but its nice to have a little insight into what Ricky does. When I think about it, I can't think of any other frame buliders who are only 23/24. Good on you Ricky lad.

Love your Bike

Spotted a shot from this on ffffound and headed over for a browse. Love Your Bike, as far as I can work out is a collective created to promote and celebrate the bicycle both in it's visual and utilitarian glory.

There is a festival organised for this summer so if anyone can head down the deep south, it looks to be well worth a visit - check the contributors list here.

Sterling typography as standard. iLovedust perhaps???

Wolfpack Marathon


Wolfpack Hustle Marathon Crash Race 2010 from The Bicinity on Vimeo.

A little slow on the uptake with this one - pretty much wrote off any decent posts this weekend. Anyway, Some footage of the Wolfpack Hustle crashing the marathon course at crazy o'clock. An awesome event with more than 400 riders turning out for some nightime carnage...

Thanks for the heads up Andrew - more shots on flickr here

Cragg Vale

Another fucking hangover, but well worth it. Despite the terrible weather, we had a half decent turnout for the Cragg Vale premiere. With the onslaught of rain, beers became the main entertainment for the day, although the underground polo was well good.

A huge thanks to everyone who made the effort to come out, get a wet arse and a bad hangover, with props to Rik from 4416 for coming up from London.

Manchester Hill Bomb

Dave Lowes managed to find a hill in Manchester so took a photo to commemorate - good work mate

Adidas Originals Advert



Fixed gear is officially massively mainstream. I'm not going to hate on anyone for being in an Adidas advert- hell I would have been stoked have been in it (wouldn't have wanted to show Becks up though) Its just, I dunno, things are changing fast I guess. Anyway, I'm off to bomb some hills. Laters.

Cinelli stainless forks

Anyone who's a Cinelli fan on facebook will have already spotted these but thought they were worth immortalising in blogworld. I'm not stoked on the shape but the idea of not having your chrome forks peeling and chipping is very appealing. Word on the street (read 'facebook') is that work has begun on a new stainless crown too. Sounds pretty interesting...
