Ibis’ New Ripley 29er Illustrated by Chris McNally

For brands, launching a new or a newly-designed bike is an exciting day, with various outlets talking about the model all at once and social media fluttering with anticipation. For viewers, it can be overwhelming for sure, but for me, when it comes to Ibis’ new launches, I always get stoked to see what watercolor artist Chris McNally comes up to coincide with these launches. Here’s the new Ripley, illustrated in watercolor and ink, on Mount Lemmon in Tucson, Arizona. Head over to Chris’ Instagram for more of his kick-ass work and to Ibis to see the new Ripley in the flesh.

100 Copies: Breakaway

Breakaway

You can fall behind. Give in. Break.
Or you can step up. Give it your all. And breakaway.
Biding your time, till you know it’s your time.
To leave all the other riders, all the crowds and all the doubt behind.
To leave all you’ve got on the track, with nothing left to give.
To bring cold strategy and fiery boldness together in one pure moment.
Anyone can break. But not everyone can breakaway.

That latest print from 100 Copies is now in stock.

This graphic from the Endurance Conspiracy has all the right vibes. Inspired by the ATOC, this image was created a couple years back but is being re-circulated for the brand’s journey to the Sea Otter Classic. Follow Endurance Conspiracy on Instagram. Thanks for sharing, Shane!

Ceramic Speed’s Wacky Yet Damn Cool DRIVEN Chainless Drivetrain System

Trust me when I say that we get a lot of kooky – and not the good kinda kooky – tech pieces emailed to us over here. From “innovative” saddle designs, to e-conversions, to surfing paddle bikes but every once in a while, something that can only be described as so damn cool, stumbles into our scope of what we call the cycling industry. Imagine if drivetrains, as we know them, could be redesigned, knocking down all recent frame design with one fell swoop. That’s what Ceramic Speed’s new DRIVEN system is proposing. You can get the gist here, but if you’d like more techy bits of info, head to Ceramic Speed.

VYNL Fights Hurricane Relief

Good on VYNL doing something to help out the hurricane relief effort!

“VYNL Fights teamed up with two primo local artists from Texas and Miami to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma climb out and rebuild. All the proceeds of each poster will go to either the American Red Cross, or a local (and vetted) charity.”

In case you can’t decide, VYNL also gives the option to get both posters at once. See more on these two designs below.

Mr. Pubes Goes To Interbike
Words and Photos by Bicycle Pubes

“Could somebody please, find Bicycle Pubes, get a hold of this mother fucker so that I can make sense out of all of this!?”

The question had been asked, by numerous people, all over the globe, possibly on other planets too. But where was the answer? More importantly, where was Bicycle Pubes? This industry is a real puzzler and Interbike needed to expertise and the cognitive capacity of a real heavy hitter to sort all of this hoity toity lithium battery open mold bullshit out.

Luckily, John Watson was off vacation and back home in LA, where he had access to the Pubes Signal. Unluckily, I cannot afford a house close enough to LA to actually see the Pubes Signal, so after several days, John just called me at home. Told me to go to Interbike. I said no I’m watching a Scrubs marathon. He said come on bro. I said OK fine. He said cool. I said fuck yeah it’s cool. Then he hung up.

Several anxiety pills and anxiety burritos later, Bicycle Pubes landed in the dogshit town that is Las Vegas. That’s me. I’m Bicycle Pubes.

Without further adieu, here is some shitty art.
