Ucon and 8Bar Bikes ‘Featherlight’ Track

Ucon and 8Bar Bikes got together recently to take the concept of creating a ‘featherlight’ track bike to the next level. Personally, I think this came out great! I really love the paint and the details down to the collaboration caps and straps. The video is a little long, but you get the idea.

Check out more photos of the bike and the process below!

This is so good! When John Maniquis from Rapha SF posted this on his Instagram last week, I kindly asked for a scan of it. User-submitted / created Merckx Monday content is always welcomed!

All-City: Retseck Collection
All-City_Retseck-01

All of you Bridgestone fans need no introduction to George Retseck. His work is most recognized from the early 90′s catalogs he illustrated for the American division of Bridgestone. This notoriety has kept Retseck working for various cycling brands over the past two decades, most recently All-City.

To commemorate this bad-ass illustration of a Macho Man Disc Cross, Jeff got these shirts and posters printed up.

Not bad at all! Pick one up at your local All-City dealer and don’t miss the post at All-City, or that pint glass!

Kyler Martz: Necronomicog Nature is Metal Graphic
nature is metal vector

If you spend any amount of time outdoors, or in the ‘wood, then you know nature is pretty fuckin’ metal. When I began thinking of the next Necronomicog design, I mentioned an idea I had to artist Kyler Martz. We went back and forth a bit until his sent me this design.

Now, this is probably one of the best shirt designs I’ll ever sell. BUT I won’t be getting them printed until November. Until then, why don’t you tell me what you’d like? Pocket tee? Black? White? Sweatshirt? Front graphic?

My inclination is always pocket t, so let me know what you want to see and I’ll print them up in the next few weeks.

Thanks to Kyler for taking this design to the next level.

Dawn Painter Knows Campagnolo

… at least as far as I’m concerned. If you’re like me, then you’ve probably seen the work from the UK artist before. After a reader forwarded me Dawn Painter’s portfolio site, I spent a good amount of time poking around at the various illustrations. Naturally, the Campy jersey and bidon were my favorite but there’s too much good stuff in there to not share.

Do yourself a favor and check out Dawn Painter’s site!
