Bikes + Art = Skatepark
by Byron on Apr 27, 2007 at 7:49 AM
I was at the Javabean getting espresso and saw a postcard for Bike + Art = Skatepark. I’m still trying to figure out what that is, but the site says,” we’re having a bicycle decorating party, a bike parade, an Art Walk, AND a benefit for River City Skate Park.”
That sounds def like something Bike Hugger would want to do. They’ll decorate bikes, then parade them, and tour South Park all to raise money for the River City Skatepark. River City must mean the Duwamish? And maybe they’ll put a bmx track near the park?

The NY Times published an article today about Fulfillment by Amazon and how Amazon is developing other ways to make money. I’m quoted with other merchants in the article about how well the program is working. We use FBA to fulfill Clip-n-Seals and hopefully soon our Bike Hugger shirts.
Both of those products have done well from Bike Hugger traffic and we’ve got more products on the way.
Biomega @ Design Within Reach
by Byron on Apr 26, 2007 at 4:45 PM
“Whoa!” I opened up the Design within Reach catalog and on page one there’s a Biomega AMS 8 Speed Bicycle. Being sold at DWR, is probably the epitome of bikes as a designer item and it’s a commuter bike at that.
The Biomega @ Design within Reach follows the UM by Puma, another designer concept bike. We’ll have to post on this further, when I see one of the bikes at DWR’s stores, and then start thinking about who’s going to wrench the bikes for them?

Schooner Exact, the makers of Bike Hugger Brown are having a brewers night tonight at the Beveridge Place Pub. According to Marcus, the Minister of Propaganda for the microbrewery, “This is going to be a special one, we were able to take a little taste of it the other day right out of the fermenter and we could not put it down!” The West Seattle blog also noticed the arrival of a new beer from Schooner.

Ahead of the ">antler-design trend by months and way more stylish with the whole global warming thing are antler bikes (stylish and saving the environment, like Sheryl Crow!). We first spotted one at Interbike, Bicycle Design posted on 8 point handlebars, Razor Apple has got the furry antler version, and the then there’s the King of the Road, which was ahead of it’s time.
Of course, there’s a blog about the Secret Life of Antlered Girls, who also ride bikes.
Fisher-Price Smart Cycle
by Byron on Apr 26, 2007 at 5:31 AM
The NYTimes picks up the story about the Fisher-Price Smart Cycle – we posted about the child-size trainer earlier this year. We still like the idea of training next to your child. While they “whack-a-mole,” you can do your sweaty spinervals.
Unsure if Fisher-Price has dropped Richard Simmons from their marketing – the bloggers had fun with that odd choice of a spokesperson.
Filmed By Bike

Filmed by Bike is a festival of bike-theme movie shorts – check the program for titles like Tag 5:10, a bike messenger chases a rollerblader through the streets of London and Snot Rocket Bike, an upwards look at the grim reality of biking.
I don’t see where you can view the vids online, but the festival posted on their success and they sell DVDs. We’ve been uploading hugger videos to Google. Also see Start 2 Finish, a documentary about the racing scene in the Pacific Northwest.
Landis Tests Positive
by Kelli on Apr 23, 2007 at 6:19 PM
It seems ages ago that Floyd Landis made his incredible comeback on Stage 17 of the 2006 Tour de France. Yet, as we approach the 2007 tour, Landis still find himself in the heat of charges surrounding his positive tests for doping. This afternoon, NPR aired an article citing additional positive tests from Landis’ back-up samples taken throughout various other stages.

The AP picks up the Coasting story writing about how the industry is hoping to drive sales with automatic bikes and enjoyment over performance. I know, I know, in previous posts, the Coasting disses come in, but anything that can get the “my dad” demographic riding more or any other demographic riding more is good for everyone. Just like the Bianchi Milano, what Electra is doing with cruiser bikes, Clever Cycles, and an industry that’s just making cycling easier.
Also check The Ride and what Ellsworth engineered with NuVinci.
