Ornot: House Jerseys
jersey_house_lifestyle_web-3

A labor of love, the House jerseys from Ornot are by no means club fit and not really race fit either. They’re redesigned to fit just right, with a slimmer, articulated cut, including a shortened center front. Even the zipper has been redesigned to be lightweight, allowing the jersey to lay as flat as possible. Available in three designs and in stock now at Ornot.

The work of Kosuke Masuda is mind-blowing. The Japanese artist engraves bicycle components with traditional Japanese-inspired designs from flowers to wind bands and waves. His latest work has just been showcased by Mash SF, who donned Kosuke’s work on a Cinelli track bike for photos. Head to Mash to see the full photoset.

Spooky Cycles: Mulholland Road Frameset
13418587_472581079611871_123199819152208327_o

Spooky Cycles is back in business, working again with legendary Frank the Welder in Vermont on small batches of frames. Currently there is a road frame, dubbed the Mulholland. These bikes have clearances for a plump road tire, are made from Dedacciai and US-made dropouts and ship roughly two weeks after you order one. There are still a few in stock, so head over to Spooky for more information and keep in touch via the Spooky Facebook.

Don’t need another road frame? Well, it appears there’s a ‘cross frame coming! Oh and why wasn’t this bike photographed on Mulholland Drive!? ;-)

The Grey Escape

This is too good and such a contrast to how I’ve been experiencing Scandinavia.

“A cycling documentary about a group of elderly people cycling nearly 250 miles from Denmark to Norway. Across the Western world, millions of elderly people live in care homes – often lonely, isolated and without mobility. But these elderly people are breaking free!
In particular, Marie, 96, and Finn, 81, overcome their issues and grow closer. The only problem is Marie thinks Finn is too young for her… “

I can’t even write an intro for this project, because Emi did such a great job with his. Emiliano is half of Manual for Speed and this summer, he’s bringing you a Tour de France Zine:

“OUI C’EST TOUT is a nod to Pierre Etaix’s Pays de Cocagne. Everyone should watch that immediately. My publication is a 20-page, 4-color, 2-D experience that will make you want to punch something while sippin’ on that Perri.
