Brenton Salo: Smoke and Ride On

Photo by Brenton Salo

Around the time that I was shopping for my M7, Brenton was looking at the Leica R6.2 SLR. Those cameras are bomb-proof work horses and Brenton’s recent exposures are doing it justice. He posted this up on his Tumblr last night and I had to share. It’s like some modern day rendition of some hardened stage racer smoking on a mountain pass.

Digging the TCB Rack as well!

Chrome Familia Reunion: NYC Link Up

Today I’m going to play a bit of catch up. I’ll be resuming NAHBS coverage, sparingly, while trying to transition back to normal. We’ll start with the newest from Chrome:

“Our man Card’s flew out to NY last summer to “Link Up” (no pun intended) with the rest of the Familia. He wanted to get the entire fam together and, collaboratively the team came up with this short.

“The MONGOOSE is part of the YNOT Pro-Series cycling bag line. It has all the features of our basic single-strap messenger bags but with additional pockets and an X-strap to spread the load.
