I was just going through my emails when I came across this and then Tracko posted it up as well. I met Jim once, in Tokyo, during the CMWC and he was a brilliantly charismatic guy. As the owner of Cranky’s, a great bike shop, he needs our help.
“This past weekend leading a youth BMX trip, Jim C a figure in our local bike community and Cranky’s shop owner took a really bad crash and landed himself in the hospital. He was rushed into surgery and spent the past couple days in the hospital racking up some big bills. Jim has done so much for our community so if you feel like supporting this awesome guy the Santa Barbara Bike Coalition has set up a donation site at www.bicicentro.org/ICF.
Back when Jim C. first moved out to Santa Barbara three years ago, coalition members were in awe. He brought with him the Bicycle Film Festival, the energy of the LA bike movement, Cranky’s, Gold Sprints, a cyclocross race, and even youth trips 100 miles away because of the BMX ban in our skate park.
Jim served the last two years as a Board member of the Bicycle Coalition active in both our events planning and in the advocacy arena. He tirelessly interacts with new and established cyclists to push our cause, hosts challenging events, and captains the ship at Cranky’s. Jim has helped so many of us, and now it’s time to help him.
At this time, 100% of SB Bicycle Coalition Injured Cyclist Fund donations are going to Jim Cadenhead, who is currently hospitalized due to a major crash during the annual Youth BMX overnight trip that he coordinates out to Atascadero.
He will have significant medical bills from this injury and does not have health insurance. It’s time for everyone to give back to Jim C!”
PLEASE donate anything you can to the Injured Cyclist Fund to help Jim C! I just did and you can too. Even $1 helps.
We made it to Bali in one piece but unfortunately, the internet is spotty, so I can’t really post much. I’ll update the site the best I can over the next few days but you know… the beach awaits!
So I’m heading out for the airport in a few minutes, en route to Jakarta for Fixed Fest! Unless I have wifi on the plane, this will be the last post until I’ve landed, so why not stroll through the Photosets or better yet, ride your bike.
I made this modified Flag Hatchet of the Indonesian flag and I’ll have a few prizes to give out, but most importantly, I can’t wait to ride with everyone and experience the Indonesian culture!
See you on the other side.
Crihs has been trying to get out to Jakarta for Fixed Fest, leaving him with only one option left: donations via Kickstarter. I’ve always enjoyed seeing Crihs’ documentation from events and would love to see this event through his lens. Head here to donate but act quick, his deadline is Sunday!
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.
If you guys have seen this error message:
You don’t have permission to access /2012/05/a-day-in-10-photos-05-05-2012/ on this server.
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.
