Everyone loves track bikes and posters. So why not combine the two? David Flores has done extensive work for Austin-based Division 1, including that giant Merckx mural on the side of their building.

KCE was kind enough to send over some stealth teaser images from the show, which you can see below…
I’m amazed at how simple this new product from Bookman is. Their new Cup Holder has no hardware, it just clips onto your bars and holds a cup of coffee for easy transport. Colors? You bet and yes, it comes in black! Pre-order now at Bookman.
One of my new favorite Tumblrs, Reporting Home, just gave an older illustration a digital makeover and guess what? It’s Wednesday!
