…cause I certainly don’t. Someone sent me this link for “nada bike”. The entire site seems to consist of just some psuedo-individuality/anti-establishment slogans and some hyperlinks, half of which lead to desperate online resumes and the other half are dead links. Worst. Site. Ever.
“Now is the time for a whole movement that says no. No gas. No foreign oil. No cars. No bullshit. You want in?”
After the Hot Topic call to revolutionary glory, they urge you to join the cause by buying a fixed gear frame for $100 plus $49 shipping. I don’t know what to make of this. Are they serious, or is this some joke by creative would-be professionals who, for lack of employment, have too much time on their hands?
WTF? Before you do that, you can join my club! Send me $100 and I’ll send you something out of my closet. It’ll be like eBay, only afterwards you’ll be Mark V’s BFF.
Core77, a industrial design magazine and resource, launched their limited edition Dutch Master last month. The Worksman cruiser should start arriving in cyclists’ garages about now.
Core77 deserves props, but we’d also like to see a bike of the future with a nod to the past. Rather than just another nod to the Dutch.
I’ve become a big fan of Rahsaan Bahati lately. I followed him on Twitter where he seems to be more about family and causes than ego and flash. Then Missing Saddle came out with this GREAT podcast interview and I had a whole new respect for the guy. Now he’s come out with a new venue on USTREAM where he’s going to go into more details on what it is to be a US Pro and the inter-workings of his controversial Rock Racing team. It’s cool to see a pro that’s getting into a cause and hoping to get more people on bikes. Check him out.
