Merckx Mondays

Artist Chris McNally, like many of us have a long withstanding love for Eddy Merckx, his legacy and his bicycles. Maybe not his modern machines, but rather the years of classic racing. Specically, Faema and Molteni.

As part of a giant undertaking, Chris is working on a new watercolor painting project: a bike shop of life experiences both fiction and non-fiction. Inside this gem of a idea will be bikes he’s owned and bikes he’s yet to own. Case in point: a Molteni Merckx…

There’s more to come from this unique undertaking, but for now let’s just appreciate the detail he put into this classic race steed.

Artist Richard Pool brought two of his favorite websites together for a #HardstyleWednesday pose. We’re blushing over here and I’m sure Tracko is too… Check out more of Richard’s work at his Instagram account @alpha_lazer.

Yonder Journal: Wilderness Prints

Illustration by Nathaniel Russell

This print from Yonder Journal celebrates and congratulates Wilderness. Here’s an excerpt:

“Congratulations Wilderness. Congratulations Wilderness for being just what you are, not that you need our gratitude. You would be better off without us anyway, the conscious, self-righteous/self-loathing, needy us. You would even be better off without the fawning, in awe, perpetually blissed-out us, the enlightened us, the elevated us. You would just be better off without us, without our tents, our non-motorized vehicles, our horses, our campfire rings, and our buried feces, you would still be you, an even better, cleaner, you, you would be Wilderness just as you were meant to be, absent the blight of consciousness, the acne of sentience.”

You should read the whole piece at Yonder Journal and pick up a print at the YJ Web Shop!

Still One of the Best Designed Shop Jerseys

NYC’s John Campo posted this on his Facebook yesterday and I had to share it. These Keith-Haring designed City Cycles jerseys have always been my favorite. A pristine example of less is more with no visible sponsor logos, or flashy colors. Just white space with an original Haring illustration.

It seems some of the original City Cycles members have gotten back together, formed a Facebook Group and have made commemorative t-shirts. I’m not sure when or if they’ll be selling to the public, but I felt like it was worth the share, regardless.

Surly: Long Haul Trucker Hobo Shirt for Men and Women

When I posted this Mike Jandora graphic a few weeks back, people kept saying they wanted it on a shirt. Well, Surly actually did make a shirt from the illustration a while back and now they’ve got a re-issue in stock, along with a women’s version.

Head to your local Surly dealer to order!
