This is bike porn at it’s best, I just love the copper plating and the chrome seat and chain stay combination.

This colour combination was used for all of Wilier’s pro team bikes after world war 2.

Melbourne Bike Fest: ONCE BITTEN

A collaboration between Who by fire and the Melbourne Bike fest sees a three part series invoking discussion on the common myths road users have of cyclists. I Like.

The clips are designed to have high impact with young people and draw on vampire mythology to unpack and poke fun at some prevalent perceptions of and attitudes toward bike riders on the roads.

Scripted and shot in collaboration with the bike riding community, the clips set a new benchmark for dialogue between road users. Offering high production values with a street sensibility, the clips playfully suggest that fear may be the pothole we all need to get around on our journey toward road harmony.


Dmitry Gudkov: #BikeNYC portraits

Dmitry is working on a new series called #BikeNYC.  He’s covering all aspects of cycling, not just fixed gear…but cruisers, brusiers and everything in between.  Check out a couple of the shots below and the rest over on his flickr.

Opening today: The Herd

“If you are in London on November 26th you are invited to come and join Paul for the opening
of his next exhibition titled ‘The Herd’… a new series of trophy heads inspired by Picasso and
made solely from bicycle parts”
This could be interesting, check out his site for everything else.
