After a pretty horrific sleepless night in a Chinatown Hotel my day picked up quite nicely. After bumping into a good friend of mine and roaming around with him and some other dudes I contacted an old school friend who moved out here some years ago. Turns out he’s got an amazing place and he said I could crash there. I can’t tell you how stoked I am, it’s another level. My greatest thanks goes out to Dex
After a couple of technical issues the new issue of Fixed Mag is now available for download. Click the image above to go straight to it, it only costs 80p!
So yeah New York is pretty wild. I got off the plane and got on the first bus I saw. When I decided I was somewhere I got off, built my bike up and started cycling. Either I got a bunch of terrible directions or I’m a terrible navigator because it took hours to get to manhattan. A friend’s couch offer fell through so eventually I checked into a really shitty hotel in chinatown
Long story short I didn’t sleep at all and after bumping into a friend of mine and frolicking the day away I’m in williamsburg waiting for the sun to go down to meet up with an old friend. New York is… Different. It’s kinda awesome. It’s really hot
Yo so I’m out, off to New York City tomorrow morning for 3 weeks.
Will try to get to a computer and update the blog but it might be
difficult seeing as I don’t really know where I can stay but whatever,
try and check the twitter, will be on that. Anyway, see ya later!
I uploaded some of my photos from a day Tyler was over to my tumblr, from Franx cafe around town a little bit
then finally to Mile End skatepark for some skateboarding radness – Tyler is good.
I saw this pretty sweet shot over at the Burro Bags Blog – Dennis Hicks getting rad and
vertical up on this spot. Pretty cool
A sweet viral video from Bikes On Wheels, a Toronto bike shop that’s been around for yonks but got re-upped
in 2009 when their manager Sean became the owner and flipped the script. Looks good in there, nice and
friendly environment. Anyway it’s good that people are recognising the importance of their local bike shops
more and more, this looks like a good one too. I like your dog
An enjoyable video from São Paulo based Tre3e Fixed, showcasing some of their designing, building and
riding. Nicely made video, easy to watch, though I couldn’t help but notice that lockring/chainwhip tool
looking distressingly similar to the FGLDN Lockwhip tool. What’s up with that? Anyway you can enjoy this
Say nizzy – Brendan shot some dope . as . photos of the V3 14bikeco Polo Bike super premium elite sicko model
with them radical S&S couplers, for easy dismantlement (great for traveling for polo comps etc). This one got the
good treatment with 2 tone paintjob and badass decals, looking super sickky I reckon. 26s, super tight rear end,
reinforced stays, closed dropouts, mounts on mounts, straight blade sikkko forks and more, check a full list of
specs when it’s fully released and that. We’re very stoked on it
