If you spend any amount of time outdoors, or in the ‘wood, then you know nature is pretty fuckin’ metal. When I began thinking of the next Necronomicog design, I mentioned an idea I had to artist Kyler Martz. We went back and forth a bit until his sent me this design.
Now, this is probably one of the best shirt designs I’ll ever sell. BUT I won’t be getting them printed until November. Until then, why don’t you tell me what you’d like? Pocket tee? Black? White? Sweatshirt? Front graphic?
My inclination is always pocket t, so let me know what you want to see and I’ll print them up in the next few weeks.
Thanks to Kyler for taking this design to the next level.
… at least as far as I’m concerned. If you’re like me, then you’ve probably seen the work from the UK artist before. After a reader forwarded me Dawn Painter’s portfolio site, I spent a good amount of time poking around at the various illustrations. Naturally, the Campy jersey and bidon were my favorite but there’s too much good stuff in there to not share.
Do yourself a favor and check out Dawn Painter’s site!
I really love the work of George Retseck. His linework illustrations for the cycling world are just too damn cool. Take this illustration for Bicycle Quarterly or the latest work he did for Paul on their Mini Motos. He’s even done some work for All-City! Companies, take note…
Follow George’s work on his Behance network!
This one’s for all the Samson owners. Woof drew up this graphic in celebration of his killer Samson. They were always my favorite Keirin frames, alongside Kalavinka.
These two names are some of the best of the best, ATMO. Pick up a House Industries for Richard Sachs t-shirt and don’t forget to swoop up the RSCX winter hats and cycling caps here!

There’s been quite the buzz surrounding the New Yorker’s latest cover art by Bruce McCall for the featured story entitled “ExerCity”. Why is the New Yorker writing about cycling? Truth is, the New Yorker has featured cycling on their covers for some time. Take the above cover for example…

I love me some Campy C-Record and Woof!

Rapha‘s Strava challenges are always a lot of fun. Ever look to see what the competitors are riding? Personally, I always enjoy clicking on the leader’s stats and seeing where they rode and what kind of elevation they can hit on their home turf. For the Rapha Rising 2013, people came out of the woodwork:
“30,841 riders worldwide took to the hills and mountain roads as part of the eight-day Rapha Rising Challenge. The challenge, in conjunction with Strava, was to climb the combined height of the Alpe d’Huez, Peyresourde, Ventoux and Col de Sarenne. A total of 7, 235m was the target but, of course, many went above and beyond that figure.”
The Campagnolo C-Record Delta brake is one of the most beautiful components to ever grace the history of cycling. While some wrenches claim they’re shit, other, more pedigreed mechanics love their unique center pull braking mechanism. Which brings me to the Dodelta. Commentary on the brake, or the user? You decide…
