We’ve all had an encounter with a bee while riding a bike. I got stung last week on our Cloud Burst ride and just recently, Bobby from Full Factory Distribution got a little more than he bargained for. Read up on the story and check out more of Taj’s killer illustrations at Fairdale.
I don’t get interviewed that often and to be honest, when I do, the questions never dig that deep. Esther Merono was in town for SxSW and interviewed me for SLUG Magazine, where she did a little excavation into my opinion on various subjects. Head over to SLUG to check in.
No joke, everyone should be able to see all galleries and posts now. Let me know if there are any more issues ok?
It’s never too late for a quick Merckx Mondays is it? Thanks to Chas of the Messenger Mansion for the supplied art and you can see two more gems below.

Don’t fret, we’ve fixed the problem and it’ll be flushing itself from your cache shortly. I recently switched to a local web host here in Austin called WP Engine. Why? Because I wanted to support a local company and because they offer unlimited bandwidth. They base their service on visits and last month, PiNP exceeded the allotted visits by a couple hundred thousand.
We caught it early and covered the bases but unfortunately, some of you have a web cache that needs to be flushed. It’ll take a day, at most, maybe two but there’s nothing to worry about.
For those that were “banned”, we fixed that too. Hopefully this is the last hiccup from the site migration and WP Engine seems to be the best option for hosting PiNP.
If you are STILL RECEIVING THIS ERROR, give us a note in the comments, that is, if you can load them up. If not, email me.
The new line of Tokyo Fixed Bikes frames are looking damn nice. Aside from that Death Spray Low Pro, the Dart is my favorite of the lineup, especially all murdered out like Jamie’s build. See more of this rad machine at Tokyo Fixed Gear.

Casey Neistat is a name you should remember by now. The Neistat brothers have been making inspirational and controversial videos for years. Remember the bike lane video? So when Nike offered to give him thousands of dollars to make a video for their #MakeItCount campaign, Casey took his friend Max around the world until they ran out of money. How long did that take? 10 days.
More inspirational goodness!

I’ve already established that our ride last week was the hardest I’ve ever done. Now, I’m by no means the best rider, but hearing Andy and Dan voice the same sentiment was comforting. We were all feeling it at various stages, but we got off easy, especially when compared to this goanna. Poor little guy.
This was the worst road kill of the trip, thankfully.
