More Wood!

Wooden Frame I found this bike on Fixed Gear Fever. I emailed Shawn (the “framebuilder”) and he sent me the story behind the bike. I’ve uploaded all the pics from Jacob for you to check out. I wanted to share it with our readers for a couple reasons:

  1. It’s damn cool
  2. The photos are quite artsy
  3. It’s really damn cool

After reading his own review, I don’t know how functional the thing is, but as bike art it’s about as cool as it comes. Jacob is a design student, and is actually looking for an internship - so if you are a reader that runs a big design shop and has a slot for an innovative guy like Jacob - hit the Contact page and I’ll get you in touch with him.

The King of Pants

While I was at CES, I missed the whole Rock Racing, King of Pants thing, but Andrew got me up to speed.

During Interbike, I stood with others at Rock’s Lamborghini display and wondered, “what does this have to do with bikes?” Later, I bumped into Frankie Andreu (I did notice he was wearing some really tight pants), talked with him about it, and figured out it was this guy with money throwing it around the sport. I didn’t meet Ball, but did hear all of his primes during the Interbike crit and saw his team pull up in Escalades. Not my thing, but hey he could’ve thrown his money at stripper poles and hip-hop culture.

Schooner Exact Anniversary Party

Tonight is the Schooner Exact Anniversary Party at The Beveridge Place, 7:00 PM.

Schooner Exact is “a local, small batch microbrewery focused on quality, handcrafted ales,” and last year brewed up Bike Hugger Brown for us. Good stuff.

Other blogs have noticed and Bike Hugger will be there

Bike Chute Aeronaut

From the what’s old is new department, I bet when the Parasailers were first marketing their thrill rides to tourists, it was all the newest thing.

Ah, but back in the day of safety bikes, Mr. Kabrich was the Bike Chute Aeronaut. I wonder if he chatted up the ladies with talk about “the draft” and “being aero.”
