Recent Roll: Chas and His Cinelli Mash
SFRandomness-23-655

My friends in San Francisco are the best. They’re all hustlers in their own perspective professions and regardless what people say about the “Cali” lifestyle, they’re always on the grind. When he’s not running traveling the world racing, he’s running his company, TCB Courier with a handful of other like-minded individuals. Call him many things: “freshly shaven”, entrepreneur, #fixiefamous, whatever, this dude is living the dream.

I stayed with Chas for over a week the last time I was visiting and out of everything I shot on my trip, these three photos of him riding that green Cinelli Mash prototype track frame are some of my favorites. All shot from a moving bicycle…

Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Kodak Portra 400

TheSkids

Everyone’s NYC tale is worth sharing in my opinion and some take the extra effort to illustrate their journey. Take Sally Carson for example. The debut issue of The Skids is Sally’s auto-biographical tale about her days as a New York City bicycle messenger in the days after 9/11.

Check it out here.

Nice find Tracko!
