I really love the work of George Retseck. His linework illustrations for the cycling world are just too damn cool. Take this illustration for Bicycle Quarterly or the latest work he did for Paul on their Mini Motos. He’s even done some work for All-City! Companies, take note…
Follow George’s work on his Behance network!
This one’s for all the Samson owners. Woof drew up this graphic in celebration of his killer Samson. They were always my favorite Keirin frames, alongside Kalavinka.
“Tour de Force,” by Bruce McCall, July 25, 2005
There’s been quite the buzz surrounding the New Yorker’s latest cover art by Bruce McCall for the featured story entitled “ExerCity”. Why is the New Yorker writing about cycling? Truth is, the New Yorker has featured cycling on their covers for some time. Take the above cover for example…

There are just three short days until the Red Hook Crit Barcelona goes down. Personally, I’m very pumped on this race and I wish I could be there to see it in person. To commemorate the event, Rockstar Games designed a poster for Red Hook Crit and it looks so good!
Thanks for sending this over, Dave!
I love me some Campy C-Record and Woof!
Leadville is happening as I’m typing this, with the race finishing in a few hours. Just because you weren’t there (or maybe you are), doesn’t mean you can’t pick up one of these Bobcats in Leadville shirts! Check out more information here and pick one up here. Personally, I think this would make a great bike shop poster too!
Pre-order one of these “Follycross” posters at Folly.
Rapha‘s Strava challenges are always a lot of fun. Ever look to see what the competitors are riding? Personally, I always enjoy clicking on the leader’s stats and seeing where they rode and what kind of elevation they can hit on their home turf. For the Rapha Rising 2013, people came out of the woodwork:
“30,841 riders worldwide took to the hills and mountain roads as part of the eight-day Rapha Rising Challenge. The challenge, in conjunction with Strava, was to climb the combined height of the Alpe d’Huez, Peyresourde, Ventoux and Col de Sarenne. A total of 7, 235m was the target but, of course, many went above and beyond that figure.”
The Campagnolo C-Record Delta brake is one of the most beautiful components to ever grace the history of cycling. While some wrenches claim they’re shit, other, more pedigreed mechanics love their unique center pull braking mechanism. Which brings me to the Dodelta. Commentary on the brake, or the user? You decide…

I absolutely love Chris McNally‘s work. His watercolor illustrations really capture the spirit of getting out and riding your bike. Ok, ok, whatever, but he’s damn good at what he does! Check out his latest “creation”… Thanks for the heads up Pearl Velo!
