WTF Bikexplorers’ latest work is an annual publication called Get Rad Be Radical. It’s a magazine that is about bikes but not about bikes, creating a platform where everyone can experience what it means to be a FTWN-B who loves bikes. This issue features 20 contributors, focusing on themes established at WTF Bikexplorers Summits from 2018-2019. Pick up a copy of Get Rad Be Radical today for $17 at WTF Bikexplorers. All proceeds from the sales go towards WTF BX programs.
I like the way this sounds!
“8 page color zine with 12 water color illustrations by Zak Kirwin of cell phone photos taken by Leland Taylor from the cell phone blog toolbag.tumblr.com. Bike camping, bandit camping, vagrancy and GOOD VIBES GALORE! Join the gang as they crash the party in paradise. When you’re camped out by the fire, and you reach for a brew, remember “Take ’em from the middle, the others keep ’em cold, and once you’ve had a few, the rest go down like water!” Printed locally on some classy ass vellum paper! 5″ x 8″”
A few months ago, Erik from AWOL and I planned on doing a ride, not just any ride however, we wanted to do the Oregon Outback. 370 miles from Southern, to Northern Oregon, all at altitude desert? Hell yes! Little did we know, that ride would kick our asses. Well, my ass anyway.
Before Interbike, we had a party at the Poler store in Portland, where we launched these zines and patches. If you’re in Portland, you can still buy one at the Poler store, but for those of you who aren’t there, you can now pick one up here. The zine features a pattern drawn by LAND, a selection of photos from the Oregon Outback, words from Erik and illustrations by Chris Conlin.
For $15 shipped in the USA, $20 shipped world wide, each zine comes with a patch and all proceeds will be donated to an organization of my choice…
Check out more previews below but SORRY SOLD OUT!
Dustin Klein, founder of Cadence has been working nonstop on his artwork and one way he’s documenting it is with a zine called Atelier:
“An intimate inside look at the various stages of the Dklein studio; finished pieces, works in process, observational documentation.
5.25″ x 8.25″
Hand numbered 1 – 20”
