Pencil display cases from aurora display case via The Projectivist. I'd think that if I were to do this, one row would be graded by shade, the next row would be graded by length, who really has so many unused pencils around?
To all the Melbournites (I'm talking to you Punk), be sure to get on your bike (MTB, roady, 10 speed, fix, BMX, unicycle, penny-farthing) and join Sasha for the Pony Bikes supported Ring of Fire alleycat on Saturday night. I had intended to race/ride this as I'll be over for polo the following weekend but my ride over was rescheduled, majorly disappointed I assure you! Great poster work as always by Double Oh Two
Those lads with the magic touch over at Deus have done it again, this time with a late HD base. So many aspects of this bike are just spot on like the front guard, lights, bars, and the air cleaner is a perfect example of using what it there, just adding some minor touches and coming out way in front.
It's a pity about the rear though, it just needs more of an arse! I'm the last guy around that will be talking about building to the "rules" of a catagory as a positive thing, but in this case a traditional "cafe" tail, or a longer seat, more of the guard, hell, even just mounting the number plate of the end would have helped it. Still, it shows that you don't need to get too extravagant to build something very impressive! Deus Ex Machina
Not sure if it's purely down to the skills of a brilliant photographer, or the eye of someone seeing such foreign sights, but I got linked onto Andreas Jakwerth's photography site via Fyxomatosis and was just amazed at the photos on there. They really capture the beauty of the locations.
Can anyone help me fill in the gaps here? Top to bottom, left to right:

Vancouver based helmet promotional coalition Prohab have released a calender to raise funds to help their cause of helmet education. If the fire-fighters can do it, then surely it good enough for us cyclists to raise some awareness while celebrating the bike girls.
I've been fascinated with tiny dwellings of late; I long for the day I've settled down enough to finally build the shipping container based creation I keep rebuilding in my head and on paper. For now I'll just continue to gather information and inspiration.
