Some great shots of the six day races in America just after WWII found over at bikeraceinfo. I especially like the top one here, braces and side slicked barnets are a great look.

Duell in NYC.

August 18, 2010

Yes, Jeremy* you did it! Can’t believe you smashed out a five hour ride on it though, you must be Loco!

The Duell still looking good and might I say I am glad (although it is not mine anymore) that you did it this way and not that way…. am I Jealous? Of course not. Well maybe a little bit.

I love photographs of people going about there business, doing their things unaware of any lens and of any camera and this is no exception. Taken from an amazing set of pictures from the early 90s of Messenger life in New York… Well worth a peep!

Props to Tracko for the linky.

New Brooklyn.

“The Launchpad” is our new “trick specific/700cmx/fixed freestyle” frame. The first frames are nearing completion and should be trickling out to paint in the next week. All of the first batch is spoken for but some will be available in shops that have preordered them. Our friends in LA, Orange 20 are first on the list to have some in stock. The bros at WBASE ,Chari & Co. and Tokyo Fixed Gear are all on the list to have frames soon too. If you can’t get your hands on one from this first run, we will be taking orders for the next, hopefully to be completed in the very near future.

“The Launchpad” is going to be offered in long and short top-tube versions with the option of either a Mid or Euro bottom bracket shell with a 45×45 integrated headtube. Color options are black, red, and clear. The long version has a taller standover and slightly steeper HT angle than the short. Overall, the geometry of this frame isn’t a much of a departure from the “Gangsta”. This thing is more stout than it’s older brother and has ample tire clearance. We’re pretty stoked on it and the addition of our “Clusterfork” is going to make for a kickass frameset that sells for $850MSRP and is handmade here in Brooklyn.

Slowly beginning to feel the top tube that slopes the ‘wrong’ way!

Chinatown Soccer Club

June 8, 2009

Members of the football/soccer-playing creative collective known as Chinatown Soccer Club recently contributed a series of photographs amongst the group. Themed around their daily modes of transportation, the photos will be seen in the bike-centric publication, Velosophie. The CSC group also brings a greater awareness to riding in New York with hopes of the city following suit much like other bike-friendly cities.

Absolutely magnificent photograph here of Madison square garden approximately 100 years ago during a six day race.

By the way for those who don’t know the only reason they didn’t race for seven days was because the lord said so. “And on the seventh day he rested” too right he did, some folks even died racing the six day event.


Boombox Bikes

December 10, 2008

Something funny is going on on the streets of New York.

Built neither for speed nor handling, these ‘bikes’ are built purely for sound. Strapped onto an assortment of metal tubes that mildly resemble a BMX are huge soundsystems… Amplifiers, car batteries, CD interchangers, everything. Forget the Panasonic track frame pal, I want one of these!
