Toronto’s YNOT has been working on developing a camera bag line but need a little bit of a boost in production costs, so they’ve opened a Kickstarter. Check out the video above and head over via the link for photos and more information.
I love the South and FBM brings some 20″ love to it for Tioga. Also, Kenny Horton velodrome shreddddd! Don’t miss this one.
I don’t know how many of you are into TYCHO but I’m stoked on how this project with Mission Workshop turned out:
“Mission Workshop and FILTER Magazine went on tour with San Francisco band Tycho, to capture the life of touring musicians. At first glance, it can seem wildly glamorous: Late nights, different cities, fans that adore you…But look a little deeper and you’ll see that the reality of life on the road is very much to the contrary. Though there are good times to be had, the majority of a touring musician’s life is spent in transition. Transition from city to city, venue to venue, and hotel to hotel. Mission Workshop documented a set of shows just prior to the 2014 Awake tour with Filter Magazine and created a photo collection called Lucid.”
View LUCID at Mission Workshop and check out that 40-page book they printed too!
I don’t know about you, but to me, that looks like a lot of fun. Luckily, most of the snow will have been melted in August.
Check out more information at the Minneapolis NACCC site!
Ace from the Sleepers took some of Ty’s footage from his Mojave Road trip and made a quick video. While GoPro footage is typically boring, this is actually a really great watch.
I can’t pass this video from Animal NY up.
This is amazing…
“Cuba underwent a bicycle revolution in the 1990s during its five year ‘Special Period’. Oil was scarce as a result of tough economic constraints, and throughout those years of austerity, bicycles where introduced as an alternative mode of transport. Thousands of Cubans used bicycles on a regular basis, as pedalling became the norm on the island.
Years later, the transportation crisis subsided and motorised vehicles returned, and the country’s bicycle culture took a hit. Now, new bikes are difficult to come by and parts are not readily available, yet many Cubans still use bicycles daily and, despite the limited resources, a handful of mechanics provide a service to those who rely on their bikes in their everyday lives.
Plenty of cyclists roam the streets of Havana and the rest of Cuba. Ángel, a typical bike riding Habanero, provides a brief insight into Cuban bicycle culture and the importance of bike mechanics in the capital as we come across both riders and repairmen.”
When I found out that I couldn’t make it to the Mudfoot Dirty Hundo, I asked Kyle and Ace if they’d be willing to document the event. Sure enough, they pulled through in a big way. Both with a video and with a killer ride report which I’ll be posting later today.
For now, check out this awesome video Ace edited of he and Kyle’s footage from the ride.
Cadence shows us how early to bed = early to shred with this new Airflow kit video spot.
