So we have been working hard to create a 2nd edition to our artist series bikes.. We posted up a awesome teaser pic a few months back of the new project that pretty much gave away nothing.. Well it’s getting closer and we figured we would give another teaser to this project.. Artist still isn’t going to be announced yet, but we gotta say.. It’s our favorite artist and the bike is going to be sooo dope!
Here is a sick sketch done by Ube on how the paint is going to look… If you ever need any custom paint work done.. hit him up @ Ube Ice Cream Shop
We have to say special thanks to SE Bikes, Aerospoke, Ube Icecream Shop and Serfas so far for this project.. Here
Us Versus Them has teamed up with SE Bikes to design the best fixed freestyle frameset available. Spearheaded by UVT’s James Banuelos, the Us Versus Them frame was designed from the ground up to withstand the harshest abuse that riders are putting their bikes through. Tested by Gus Molina, Josh Boothby, and DJ Mull, the frame has been put through months of abuse to make sure that the frame is bombproof. The Cr-Mo frame has been fully heat treated with the top and down tubes being double butted. The seat tube has been cut-out to allow clearance for larger (50c) tire sizes along with ovalized & tapered seat and chain stays for extra tire and foot clearances.
The 73mm mid bottom bracket and Campy compatible integrated headset are both externally machined and a sealed Tange headset comes installed as well as a trick integrated seat clamp. Finally, the Landing Gear forks are heat treated & butted for even more strength.
Wow it is officially the end of the world…welcome to an iPad game application that allows you to play a … hipster on a fixie. Here is the info that came posted with the video: We’ve got a jump start on you all tuning our piano hands technique for flirting with pedestrians! You’ll get your chance soon, though. Hipster City Cycle is coming your way faster than a lok’d out hipster on a fixie! (yeah, that’s in the game)
The BROOKS at it again. We just got a word that Brooks will be releasing soon the very first item under their new label – John Boultbee. The Criterion Mk.1 Jacket is the first in a line of what will soon be regarded as the world’s finest jackets for cycling, carrying the label John Boultbee, not to mention the fact that behind it stands Brooks name, and all which that implies. The outer surface of the John Boultbee Criterion Mk. 1 is Ventile, a waterproof and windproof treated woven cotton textile designed in England during the Second World War for use in pilot’s suits. Ventile is also popular among birdwatchers and naturalists because is produces almost no noise when in use. Cyclists entering classrooms, movie theaters, or meetings behind schedule will appreciate this feature. For more info check out Brooks Blog.
