i just returned from an annual bike show at Larz Anderson museum. good times as always. what particularly caught my eye are these droolable hand-built bikes from old’s cool cycles by Midas – a skillful artisan and a great person. more here
knight moves happen between these hours. please make note of that! i’ve designed this piece as part of this project.
cinelli laser sold yesterday on Sotheby’s auction in NYC for just $47,500USD
some of my design works will be featured in the LIFE IN PUBLIC an art show inspired by NYC’s streets. i am psyched to have my works exhibited alongside of some big names in the art/design industry. if you happen to be in NYC that week, come check it out – it should be fun. more info on this event here
not too long ago expanding internet sales coupled with tough economic times posed grave danger to local bicycle retail industry. the end of LBS as we know it is within stone’s throw, i can almost see it from where i am.
however, bad news doesn’t stop there. boston’s bike-share program is here to stay. which means maintenance-free life for many cyclists using this program. it also spells “d-e-c-l-i-n-i-n-g s-a-l-e-s” for many already struggling bike shops.
without a doubt my children will inherit a very different retail landscape, where words like “local bicycle shop” and “video/record store” or “pay phone” will only exist in our memories.
support your local bicycle shop now! show ‘em some love. send them a postcard (or something) tell them how much you’ll miss them when they’re gone!
