From Signal Cycles‘ co-owner Matt Cardinal come what many would consider Instagram gold. I love it when framebuilders – or anyone for that matter – take it upon themselves to document cycling’s nuanced history like this: simple pen and ink drawings of classic derailleurs, once a day, for a month, all catalogued with the #DailyDerailluer hashtag.
Matt, we’re paying attention over here. Great job.
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…”

100 Copies returns with another of their limited-edition prints. This round, it’s entitled Cyclism:
“As a celebration of the beauty and joy of cycling, 300 noteworthy quotes are assembled to create this artwork. Drawn from a wide variety of bike lovers – from presidents to pro racers, scientists to artists – this collection expresses what makes cycling more than a sport. Some quotes are slices of life, while some are deeper musings. But all of them will resonate with, and inspire, your cyclist’s soul.”
Pick one up at 100 Copies.
Great find, Tracko! Pick up one of these rad support vehicle posters at David Spartshott’s web shop. I love the jersey illustrations as well.
I love the look of old technical drawings by Rebour, yet I can appreciate modern day, playful takes on the art. Here’s a Campagnolo Cassette Flower by Velo Vintage. See more of their work at Etsy.
This is a project I’m looking forward to and have been sold to secrecy. All I can say is the new Velo font is launching soon and there are a few surprises in store… Check out the House blog for more updates!
Frame bag, trucker hat, third bottle cage… Yep, Mike Jandora’s illustration for the latest Surly blog entry is spot on.
The man behind Mudfoot, those Stinner bikes and all kinds of rad stuff has a pretty kick-ass Tumblr. You should check it out!
Amen, Kris. Scoop up one of these posters at 44 Bikes’ web shop.
Praise the Necronomicog!
… unfortunately it closed yesterday. I wish Tracko would have told me it was up while I was in town. Luckily for us, the La Luz de Jesus Gallery has an online showcase up, where you can see all the pieces in a decent resolution. So head over if you want to check it out and see a few more below.
