Even though I have to fight a twinge in my gut whenever I think about Nike BMX, this is perhaps the sickest BMX vid I have ever seen.

Best Album Cover Ever?

A while back Kevin sent me a link to this, along with his declaration that it is the best album cover ever. I've been meaning to post it, but until now it has slipped through the many cracks in my email box.

Bears in smoking jackets. Who knew?

Art Crank April 4th

Art Crank is happening once again at One on One here in Minneapolis this Saturday.
If you've never been, this is the third year for the show, which features bicycle themed original poster art. This is the biggest art party One on One throws all year and is something that I always look forward to.

Good food, good music, good people, and great art; but the best thing about Art Crank is that you can actually afford to make purchases and take a few posters home with you.

If you're in the area. don't miss it.

P.S. I also hear that the famous Stevil will be showing and making a public appeance. So if you've ever wanted to hob nob with an internet celebrity, here's your chance.

March 25, 2009


I'm off to Milwaukee tomorrow for the MMI. I'll try to put in a few updates over the weekend but I trust you'll understand if it doesn't happen.

In other news, we finished filming for Bootleg Sessions last weekend and got together to watch some of the footage yesterday. None of us, besides Andy, had really gotten to watch it and we were all nervous to see how it turned out, and I'm happy to report that MPLS will be well represented. Andy did a phenomenal job of filming and the tricks are solid. I'd like to say thanks again to Burd for allowing us to be a part of it.
Thanks for coming over boys.

Anyhoo, I bid you ado for the weekend (maybe) and leave you with some random photos of Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorf.
Guaranteed to help get you through this rainy weekend.

Capricorn Bags

Looks like Brad from Capricorn is testing the Commuter/Messenger bag market.

*text from Capricorn site
We're trying something new over here at Capricorn World HQ. Local seamstress Amber Jensen, who you may recall made both my Cappy Caps and my coveted Fatty Trunk Sack, just bought a closet-full of wholesale canvas and is turning at least some of it into rugged, classically-styled commuter bags.

Pictured here is the first prototype and it features double-thick canvas construction, ultra-suede straps, two outer pockets under the flap, and steel buckles. We went into this collaboration with the intention to use little to no plastic, and while the buckles are a bit more cumbersome to use than the hardware on just about every bag made these days, but we're okay with making something a little different.

The way we see it the buckles holding the flap closed are more-or-less optional. The buckle on the shoulder strap still allows plenty of adjustment, and can be adjusted on the fly if you refrain from threading the extra through the loops. This isn't a messenger bag-- there's no Velcro, no stash pocket, and most certainly no fast-living, urban hipster niche that we're trying to accommodate. It's just a bag which you can use for any mundane, self-gratifying purpose you'd like; on or off your bicycle.

There are currently eight colors to choose from: aqua, citron (pictured), raspberry, brown, rust, sage, pink, and black. Introductory price is $100 plus shipping. Money back if it doesn't work out for you (provided it's returned in satisfactory condition). Email me if you want one or simply have any questions.
