In Russia photoshoot


in Russia bike rides you

We come to you with another girl on bike shoot.. The inspiration behind this shoot is our one and only lovely Max.. He runs all the behind the scenes and “IT” issues at Urban1cycle.com and well of course we he is from the motherland of Russia.. We have known Cristina for many years now, and she came up with the classic title for this feature “In Russia, bike rides you” being that Max designed his bike with some Russian “flare”.. It’s a SE draft with a upgraded crank, and SE Lager wheels..Please check out our gallery for a full photoshoot set. Enjoy….



SENZA bike lock

Interesting idea for a bike lock from Jaryn Miller.  The Senza system makes a bike completely secure. The whole system is incorporated into the bike itself making it easier to simply grab and go, and also provides safety for quick stops. The hadlebars seperate into three pieces. The central piece remains in place on the frame, while the two removed handles lock together, offering more space, and versitiliy than a standard U-Lock. Furthermore, if a thief were to cut the lock off, it renders the bike virtually unridable, as there are no handle bars. In addition, the lock on the rear of the bike is used to secure the back tire and seat post.


Lafayette Riverside Bike Polo Tournament

In early April, Lafayette, Indiana hosted a polo tournament that attracted teams from all over the midwest. Players from MKE to Lexington jousted and battled during the day long event at a unrivaled polo court. Filmmaker Kevin Daly captured the event and created a definitive video. Polo’s highest quality players in a document that captures the brutality and pleasures of the game.
