Be warned… graphic video inside. Critical mass event Porto Alegre Braszil cut short when a driver mows down bunch of cyclists on purpose with his car. I hope he gets shot by a cop for that. I don’t care what you think about cyclists but this was uncalled for.
Bike Polo at Tampa Twilight Criterium – sponsored by 66fixed.
What is it:
Bikes will replace cars on downtown streets Saturday for the Tampa Twilight Criterium, a fast bicycle race held on a short, urban course. Organizers promise speed, excitement and even some blood. Unlike long-distance stage races, spectators get to see riders zoom by dozens of times during each race. The Tampa Downtown Partnership organized the event to help bring life to downtown on the weekends. Now in its second year, the multirace event is expected to draw 3,000 to 4,000 spectators. For more info see the flyer or check out the event site.
Good folks at Fyxation released new Mesa Pedals. These pedals ideal for freeride, BMX and urban riders that want a hard hitting pedal built to withstand abuse and provide a solid platform for any style of riding. Made out of a high impact nylon the Mesa is wide platform pedal with a super thin profile that will work with most of today’s popular foot retention systems. For more info click here.
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)
