Made by Hand: Fast Boy Cycles May 20, 2013

I really enjoyed this video from Made by Hand on Fast Boy Cycles!

“A project from, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

Our fifth film turns to bike maker Ezra Caldwell (Fast Boy Cycles), who was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. When the cancer threatens to shatter his love of bikes, Ezra survives by documenting his illness as thoroughly as his craft.”

  • Ez is an extremely inspiring dude. Insane photographer, dance teacher, woodworker, chef, and frame builder. I had the chance to hang out with him on a rainy, summer day Queens after he was cleared of cancer the first time. I’m gonna miss the hell out of him, even though I’ve only met him once, and I’m not the only one. He’s huge impact on a lot of complete strangers without even trying to.

      We shouldnt start missing him already, he’s a fighter thats more than clear. What we should really do is to life our life as it is supposed to be lived!

  • Nice to see this story finally captured so well in a short video. Sharing this.

  • This hit home on a lot of levels. Really good stuff
