We were not expecting this one! State Bicycle Co and The Notorious B.I.G. have released a limited edition capsule collection featuring a singlespeed bike, bar tape, t-shirt, cycling cap, and cycling kits. The whole project came out really great but this “Ready to Die” jersey takes the cake. See the entire collection at State.
Our friends at State Bicycle are running a Killer (Mike) fundraiser!
State Bicycle Co. is giving away, this 1 of 2 (Killer Mike has the other one) – BMX Bike in order to support, raise funds, and awareness for Los Angeles Bicycle Academy. The bike was originally created for rap-legend, community leader and activist Killer Mike. We are asking participants to voluntarily donate $10 for Los Angeles Bicycle Academy on this product page, and they will be automatically entered to win the bike*. We will draw a person at random. The bicycle recipient will be announced Saturday, June 27th. No purchase necessary, see below for details.
About Los Angeles Bicycle Academy (LABA):
Los Angeles Bicycle Academy (LABA) is a youth education program, community bike shop and youth cycling team with a mission to empower, educate and develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills in boys and girls between the ages of 8-18. Within the context of a full-service bike shop we employ a comprehensive hands-on bicycle mechanics, sales and service curriculum including an ‘earn-a-bike’ program. LABA’s cycling team seeks to expand the capabilities of youth from communities where exposure and access to the sport of cycling and lifestyle are limited. LABA will support 9 youth cyclists on its roster for the 2020 season. The bicycle is a tool for liberation and freedom. It is positive for both mental and physical health. Through the ownership of a bicycle, possibilities are expanded, travel becomes easier, new places are discovered.
Oh man. Thanks for the email Jeff! This might be slightly NSFW.
Alan from Melbourne shared with me this hip hop video. Here’s a background:
“I’m a melbourne courier/occasional filmmaker seeking some exposure for a video i just directed. Its for an independent melbourne hip-hop group called You and Your Music, their lead MC Adam King is a courier and the track is a bit of an ode to our chosen profession.
The vid is entirely funded by the band, produced by local independent filmmakers, directed by a courier and features two of Melbourne’s finest pushie pilots in the starring roles. You might recognize one of em. As well as that it got massive support from our courier community, many of whom pop up in it.”
You guys better get your fill of hip hop today, it’s Tuesday Teardown time tomorrow!
If you’re at work, put your headphones on. It’s time for another one of these videos.
