Two of my Favourites.

Bikes and once upon a time… Scooters.

Love these photographs, taken in 1976 outside Bill Phillbrook’s bike shop in Welling, UK.

I had a couple of scooters once. My first, a 70’s Vespa special was smashed up after an impact with a car and the other I stupidly sold to pay for driving lessons… It was a ’64 Lambretta TV 175, I loved it and I want it back! Not likely though.

Similarities.

October 21, 2009

I have posted on this subject before here but after seeing the following frame I feel it has gotten worse.

Is that Killorado BMX not simply ridiculous? Just take a look at the length of the seat-tube for the answer.

This guy sums it it pretty good:
The worst offender in this regard, of course, is Blackeye’s Cory Jarman, whose signature frame, the Killorado is an abomination against everything ever. It looks like a stripped-down girls bike from Toys R Us. I know he does 180 whips down stairs, but it’s ridiculous for the same reason it would be if someone hit 2,000 home runs while using a special aluminum/carbon bat. I hesitate to call it cheating, but it’s pretty freaking lame.

Micro-scooter Radness.

April 28, 2009

Before this if I had been told that kids were actually using their micro-scooters for flips and tricks I would have replied “Dude seriously, how rad can you be on a micro-scooter?”

Peep this vid to see just how wrong I would have been.

Word up Hardy for the heads.
