The Vanilla Bicycles x Chris McNally Collection
IMG_6947

I love seeing projects like this form. Especially when it’s got Chris McNally involved. That man is so talented. Here’s the scoop from Vanilla:

“Born out of a friendship and shared love of impractical vehicles and the clean aesthetic of 60’s and 70’s road racing, this project represents the culmination of seeds planted a few years ago. When Sacha started in on a design for the new Vanilla kit, he was reminded of how garish modern team gear has become. Thinking about what the design could be, he wanted to evoke the beauty and simplicity of past designs, while keeping the forward-looking feel the Workshop believes in…”

Br-0Nb0CMAEmsYQ

I’ve been following Pedal Strike’s Instagram for a while. There’s something insanely unique about doing portraits of cycling’s icon in common condiments (Lance in BBQ sauce was awesome) that makes it addicting. Her recent Tour de France series is killing it!

Give Pedal Strike a follow on Twitter and Instagram for an extra smile per stage!
