Jake Ricker reached out to his photography buddies to pull together a new 70-page zine out called Amalgamate. The photos are great and the proceeds are going to help cover his wife’s medical bills after she was attacked by three dogs on a hike last year.
Some of the friends that submitted photography and art are:
Dustin Klein, Damian Riehl, Kyle Kelley, Jason Yim, Dylan Bigby, Kyler Martz, Matt Lingo, Terry Barentsen, Chas Christiansen, Crihs Thormann and Aron Dubios.
He is also still selling his other 60 page zine called Born To Die of his photography. $12 each or $20 for both. To help out and order PayPal $12 or $20 as a “gift” to firstname.lastname@example.org. And make sure to include your address.

A reader sent over the work of Rebecca J Kaye, an illustrator that take everyday objects and compares them to bikes, via a play on words. These two were my favorite, head over to her site to see more.
A few Italian readers shared this with me and who can pass up a free webazine? This issue is filled with photos of some familiar faces. Check out Cykeln Magazine 03 here!
You’ve probably seen this graphic before by an artist named Aaron Kuehn. What you haven’t seen is a special gold edition, specially printed for Golden Saddle Cyclery. Available to be shipped in time for the holidays, these GSC Edition Bicycle Typograms are a perfect gift for cyclists. Pick one up here.
Klaus from Cycling Inquisition shared this with me and I couldn’t be more enamored with this project:
“Col du Tourmalet, Stelvio Pass, Mont Ventoux, Côte de la Redoute, and the Koppenberg. Iconic climbs differing in length, grade and location, but all of which conjure up numerous emotions and moments in cycling history. As iconic as these climbs are, however, they barely resonate with Colombian cyclists and fans. That’s because Colombia, with its sizable history in the sport, has it’s own climbs. Ones with tremendous amounts of history, lore and statistics to match.
Among the numerous climbs that dot the Andean landscape, three stand well above all others. Páramo de Letras, Alto de Minas, and the Alto de la Línea. One is the longest climb in the world, another defeated Fausto Coppi, while one has actually claimed lives, while giving birth to a generation of escarabajos.
This set of prints celebrates these icons of Colombian cycling.
Printed on uncoated, bright white stock, this set of 11″x16″ (27.94cm x 40.64cm) prints ships rolled. Each print shows the profile of the climb, and gives key information about each one. Length, climbing height, and maximum grade.
Dare I say, “suitable for framing”?
Each set also comes with a small booklet detailing the importance of these climbs, a sticker of a cyclist who has made his name on these climbs, and (don’t laugh) a piece of coffee-flavored hard candy made by the oldest candy manufacturer in Colombia.”
I’m digging this fender design by Nisnas Cycles but they’re only in the prototyping phase. Expect an update when they’re available!
