Bike Parts Vending Machine

Needing an inner tube in the evening can be a little tricky at best. Bike Fixtation could be an answer ; Newly opened in Minneapolis, the station is open 18hrs a day, 365 days a year. The machine contains tubes, lights and snacks as well as a bike stand and air pump. I can only imagine what some of the scum in the UK would do to places like this but it's a pretty nice idea. The other option? Get your local kebab shop to start selling parts...

Chrome SF: Tak Photoprint Tee

Chrome has made another addition to their growing apparel collection with three photoprint tees with these shots by Takuya Sakamoto. I thought it made sense to show the images in all their glory but you can check out and buy the tees direct from the Chrome site...

Leader x PC Kagero

Patrick from PC has been talking about this collab for a while and the outcome doesn't look too bad at all. Nice simple detailing and a strong colourway are a damn good start. I'd be interested to see this built up with some different parts too...

Congratulations!

Massive props to Ricky Feather - The track bike he built for Martin (pictured) was awarded Best Track Bike at Bespoked Bristol. Looking at the other bikes on show, there was some pretty stiff competition, which makes it all the better. Well done lad!

Polski sklep



Marek aka 'Roland from Poland' has a talent for smelling a good tyre. I'm being serious, give this man (baby) a tyre and will tell you if its any good without even having to ride it - it's nuts.

Blood Sweat Chemo

I'm a big fan of Allan Peters blog - a great source of inspiration and a regular on my blogroll, but the story behind these amazing designs by Jason Miller is particularly captivating.

Jason's workmate Andy Thieman went through a long battle with cancer and decided the best way celebrate his victory was to help to raise some money for others that have suffered at the hands of the disease. To date, the pair have raised in excess of $26000 for the Livestrong Foundation.

Great work and a great cause. For more info, head to Blood Sweat Chemo

Fixed 08

Gotta be the best cover shot yet on the upcoming 8th issue of Fixed. Here's the story behind it:


we set off very early at 4am, grabbing a free breakfast on the way at a mountain hotel… (just say you’re staying in room 11 and it normally works) 
We were looking through photographs making the selection for Fixed 08, when we found a random shot of a supply road leading to the top of the mountain island, by the dam. Patrick had not attempted this descent before, as it is off the main road and normally he rides the 30km straight down without stopping. The surface of the supply road was super sketchy, pitted with pot holes, uneven cobble stones and crumpled tarmac making it almost impossible for him to control skidding… it was good fun and we hope you will like the end result.



The seabase stuff has been visually stunning from the off - to see more check out the cuttersink blog.

My Gears



Just a few little shots of my beloved Madone that I took in the studio.
Fear not- this is Max posting, not Sam. The day you see him with gears is the day he touches a windows PC without projectile vomiting.
