Reader Survey

Flat or gloss? This is the dilemma I face, should I leave it in base coat or put some gloss on it. It's a very dark metallic silver and I had intended to leave it flat but now I'm second guessing myself for resale reasons, however that's just making more work for myself. What do you think?

And just for Punk, here's a link to check out

Wheelmen Bag

Here's something for 002 to fuel his wax cotton canvas fettish, Wheelmen & Company have just revealed images of their soon-to-be released Minute man bag. Looks well detailed with padding, leather badges and taped zips.
Add it to my ever growing wish list of bags.

Take a Hold

I've had a few discussions of late about bars with fill pieces like these, if I had steel bars I'm pretty sure I'd be fabbing up something similar.

Reader Submission: Tilt Shift Time Lapse

My mate, the Dutchdingo, sent me this video by Keith Loutit, it features the familiar tilt shift technique but adds some time lapse to the recipe to great effect.
Endure the terrible sound track if you can, it does add to the effect.

A Local Cat.....

...for the local cats.

Get involved, head down and race, or help out at a check-point, either way leave a comment on Pedalocalypse and let the man-with-the-plan know.
I'll be over in Melbourne town for the Roobaix so a lower place after the usual suspects is up for grabs!

The Element of Surprise

Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because Chuck Norris only recognises the element of surprise.

Road Trippin'

I think I just found the perfect vehicle for my imminent US road trip, just swap the boat for a 3 bike rack and it's done. So much cooler than the Camry wagon I keep thinking I'll end up with.

Some very nice looking jerseys, that I'd even consider wearing, designed by MONOW are about to be released from AURORA. The one above is my pick, it reminds me of a favourite graphic poached off of ffffound some time ago:

Check out the two other designs at Berlin Fixed.
There is much more great work on MONOW [I really need to improve my virtually non-existent German]

Places To Visit: Saturdays NYC

A surf shop in the middle of NYC? Sure, why not, especially when you install an espresso machine!

Saturdays looks like the ideal place to spend a rainy saturday afternoon, or just a great place to go for a coffee and a reminder of the simple things.
Interesting blog too:

Case Closed

Defendant: "What does this mean?"
CSI: "it means you have something to hide"
CSI:"because innocent people draw what they see from the edge of the bed, you drew it from a bird's eye view, so you're GUILTY!!"

Careful out there all you designers, architects, engineers, for that matter anyone who draws for clarity rather than artistic merit.

[yeah, yeah, I hear you asking: "why on earth are you watching that rubbish anyway?" I'm sick, give a guy a break]

Mess It Up

My good mate is a fantastic writer but happens to be publicity shy so she shall remain nameless for now. She wrote this, and for some reason I decided it deserved to be formatted [Sorry I messed with your structure].

The last thing I need is another source of procrastination, but of course I'm continually finding more. Here's one of the most recent additions to my reading list:
The Whoa: Photography, girls, bikes, and above all, randomness of the highest calibre.

I've always loved that song, and like most, I too have always been perplexed by the rabbit in the hat with the bat.

One for the fellow grammar nerds


The local crew will get it why this is so amusing...
Thanks for the heads-up Rick!
