MaiHiro x Urban1cycle x Velocity wheels Bike Project

A few months back urban1cycle was brain storming and came up with the idea to bring two different idea’s together.. the fixed gear / single speed scene with vinyl toy world.. Some might not know too much about vinyl toy’s… many companies out there that product high end vinyl toys that I consider art and others do too.. Many big names out there such as Maihiro and Kidrobot.. After looking through Maihiro work, I def got interested and wanted to work together with them.. I contacted Nakanari @ Maihiro, after a few weeks of idea’s being tossed around. He came up with the ninja skitty idea. Then I contaced our boys @ Velocity wheels, who were totally down for the colab… and we got our hands on a sick set of white B43’s.. Here is a sneak peek of the colab… COMING SOON!

Bike polo team arrested

We had to post this. Unbelievable… Via link

Above: A mug shot from the arrest.

During a Sunday pick-up game, ten members and one spectator of the Milwaukee Bike Polo Club were arrested and charged with “trespassing a dwelling” at the O’Donnell parking structure in downtown Milwaukee. Below is a first hand account:

An unmarked Buick Century approached with three undercover sheriff’s deputies.  The officers sprung out of the car and instantly shouted “every one come here and against the wall”.  They count us out eleven then proceeded to note, “I thought there were 12” (Lodi had snuck out 5 mins before the bust).  The officer then told us that we were under arrest and would be receiving trespassing tickets for $263 each.  We tried to talk our way out of the situation but that lasted about 30 seconds. One by one we gave our information and received a ticket.  We were then told by one of the officers that we were being detained but no is under arrest, specifically he said “if you are asked by a cop or employer have you ever been arrested say no”. We were then zipped tied and the officers explained that we would be going downtown to be processed and released and that it should not take too long, that essentially “it’s just like a speeding ticket”. This led to confusion for us since when you get a speeding ticket, you don’t usually go to jail, right?

Man gets 4 months in jail for shooting cyclist in the head.

Charles Alexander Diez, the former North Carolina firefighter who shot cyclist Alan Simons in the head, has been sentenced to four months in jail. Diez pled guilty to shooting Simons during a July 26 roadside confrontation. Said to be upset that Simons was riding his bike with his 3-year-old child, Diez fired his .38 caliber pistol as Simons walked away after the two exchanged words. The bullet struck Simons’ bike helmet, narrowly missing his skull. So let me get this right, you can get years for abusing animals but you can shoot a cyclist and get a slap on your wrist? Wow, just wow. Story via StreetsBlog.
