The Footdown: El Diablo Prints
El-diablo-prints

In the spirit of the Tour, Ty at the Foot Down made a run of El Diablo prints and shirts.

“Didi Senft has been a regular fixture on the slopes of the greatest climbs of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia since 1993. More commonly known as El Diablo he appears dressed as the devil running and jumping alongside the riders and bringing an extra spark of excitement to any stage. Everyone loves Didi!”

Score one at the Foot Down.

The Foot Down: Track End Print

I’ve always loved those 14R Royce track ends and I’m stoked to see the Foot Down celebrating them.

“I hand screened these prints myself on super thick A3 sized paper. The first 25 orders will be hand numbered and signed, they have a top secret defining feature that won’t be on the rest.

Get a bit of fixed gear up on your wall, buy yours from the Foot Down Shop

Oh God! Why Can’t My Boyfriend Skid!? Prints

When the Foot Down first made this graphic, every skater turned track bike rider couldn’t help but crack a huge grin. Fast forward from 2010 to modern times and a lot has changed. Do you still own a track bike? Can you skid? Does your girlfriend even care anymore? Whatever your answer is, swoop up one of these prints, because nostalgia dies hard. Like the Aerospoke fad…

Manual for Speed and Dan Funderburgh Screen Prints
20131212_MFS_Print_004

I love it when Manual for Speed gets weird!

“Manual for Speed commissioned Dan Funderburgh to create a limited edition screen print inspired by Paris Roubaix – cycling’s most iconic and famous/infamous one-day race. Paris Roubaix aka The Hell of the North is notorious for it’s harsh conditions (cold, wet, muddy, rainy, windy, etc) and treacherous sections of pave or cobbles, of which there are 27; e.g. Trouee d’Arenberg otherwise known as The Trench.

Hand printed at LQQK Studio in Brooklyn, the gradient was achieved through the use of a single screen, split fountain technique, which technique results in subtly unique prints. The print measures 21 x 33″ and is signed by Dan Funderburgh. Limited to 50.

Manual for Speed, now in our fourth year, is Emiliano Granado and Daniel Wakefield Pasley. MFS is a long-term study of Professional Cycling.”
