Wheels for Your Wall

<

p>A couple of years ago at ICFF, I met the guys from Flavor Paper. In the middle of a Javits center bursting with enough brilliant design to keep a junky like me enthralled for weeks, Flavor Paper’s booth stood out–as did the slightly disheveled guys with an unmistakable passion for wallpaper.

The New Orleans-based maker of boutique wallpaper had a thrillingly over the top booth swathed in a crazy quilt of their eye-popping patterns. Periodically I check their site to find a wild new pattern for my notional dream house and so stumbled across the following titled “Flower Pedal.”

Designed by Dan Funderburgh and perfect for your home bicycle workshop.



MPG - Infinity

<a/>I’ve seen a couple of these shirts around lately and I love the message. There have been a couple articles that try to quantify the actual mileage of a cyclist - most put it around 800-1000 miles per gallon equivalent. Not infinity, but still pretty darn good!

I like to accentuate the positive, but this “negative” shirt was pretty hilarious too:



a Masi Clone Project

Enjoy the Speedplay gallery that “chronicles the start-to-finish construction process of my modern replica of the 1961 Masi Special.”

Free Bikes in New York

During the Tour de France, the Forum for Urban Design and Storefront for Art and Architecture “is revolutionizing transportation networks and greening the urban fabric” with a Bike Share Project demonstration. That’s about the coolest thing to do in NYC that I could imagine and can only hope the demonstration turns into a project like Pamplona, Lyon, Paris, Barcelona, Stockholm and Oslo. On a more local scale, with less design aesthetic and catchy slogans, is Buffalo Blue Bicycle or the Vancity Bike Share.

A reader pointed us to a newswire story today on Paris being a city of lovers and bikes, with the whole city becoming a bike zone.

Caravan of Schwag in London

From Bike Biz, a pledge from the Mayor of London to give le Tour an “unforgettable send off with” 11 million pieces of schwag. Expect some of that schwag, like the Transport for London bracelets, to find their way onto eBay or at least hanging on a shop wall somewhere. And we’ll check flickr for the photos and the spectating blogs who’ll watch for the Specialized Angel, the Devil, and the el Dope penis graffiti.

michelin14.jpg My fav experiential marketing, as the French call it, in the caravan is the old Michelin Man Moto. I could only find this photo of a kinda crappy model of it, but there’s lots of Flickr photos of the iconic Michelin Man, including this old sign, but not this guy.

So what are you watching for?
