Last year, RVCA collaborated with Italian Bicycle maker Cinelli in a project consisting of 13 artists reworking their track bikes. Amongst the artists featured in the show was Barry McGee, whose work ended up going into a limited production run of 50 replica’s.
One of the 50 replicas will be on display at the Heist store in Melbourne this Friday, celebrating the event will be the launch of 50 Kaws X RVCA T-shirts and free beer. If your around head down to check it out.
Whether you love or hate this fixed gear “fixocalypse”, you can’t go past this blog, 2V. Two dudes, Cedrik & Viktor, team up with Eastpak to deliver one of the better photo projects I’ve seen in a long, long time.
High contrast B&W, clever use of fish-eye lenses and quality compositions.
After being in a city for 10 years, you sometimes lose your inspiration to shoot, however it’s photography like this that inspires me to pick up my cameras and shoot all weekend. I’m gonna be staring at these all day. Big ups.
Sniffed out at trackosaurus rex.
“The new 7th issue of Sahtel magazine featured an exclusive interview with MASH members Garret Chow and Jonathan Burkett. Hereby we’re publishing the original english version of the text along with some of the photos over our website. The interview is made by Lily Lin. Enjoy.”
The MASH crew definitely have a lot to answer for. On my last trip to Tokyo, the cities infamous BNE smothering was pretty much over taken by MASH paraphernalia. When I dropped in to WBASE, I was met with a lot of young Tokyo hipsters and gaijins riding some seriously hot customs. I’ve posted the shots up elsewhere on this blog, but the fixie epedemic is definitely in full force with the MASH massive on the fore front.
A great read and some insight into the MASH lifestyle, not to mention lots of excellent photography. All these shots of people in the summer time is getting me anxious.
Big ups to the crews who made it down to Skid Vicious today. Mad vibes, lots of laughs and lots of beer. Big ups to the size of the Cranky Crew getting it together ever Sunday, if you wanna hook up, check out Cranky Sundays.
Nice to meet some of the MDMA cats as well, respect.
In the infamous words of Hans DC … “Don’t rage, just ride”.
See you Sunday.
Popped into the Heist yesterday to snag a copy of Cog, and there are only a few left so be quick. A great read, covering mainly mid-western messenger crews and a small dip into the Keirin race culture. Lots of rad photos, and interviews (even one with Melbourne’s very own Fyxomatosis). Nice. These are free and are definitely collectors items. Spread the love, get a copy and support Cog!
I also popped into see Dan Shifter last night and he will have copies soon, too! Have a good getaway, bro!
