Baum Cycles Mini Doc
skinny: From Prolly (who is currently on vacation in the land down under)While we wait on my Shop Visit photos to Baum Cycles here is this little mini doc to give you the background on this superb bicycle framebuilder out of Australia. I was damn impressed with their bikes and operations at Baum. Expect to see them wow the world at NAHBS this year.
Checking out their site, led me to this video:
Jordan Hufnagel: Custom Bike Builder
skinny:I made this short piece on custom bike builder Jordan Hufnagel for Level Mag. Jordan’s shop is in Portland, Oregon, and he makes everything from Track to Cyclocross bikes, along with pretty much anything in between. I’ve been shooting studio photos of a lot of Jordan’s bikes for the last few months, and this is an extension of that.
Good dose of freestyle fixed gear from Prolly’s amazing site:

And last up, I got an email about this one:
Thomas Porter whacky bikes mini doc.
skinny: Brooklyn resident William Thomas Porter builds wonderful – and really weird – bikes. “I wouldn’t call them mutants,” he says of his bike caricatures, “because that would make them sound ugly. It’s more like creating this… new splendid form.” We followed him around for a about a year documenting his projects and cajoling him into demonstrating the bikes’ awesomeness in a series of humorous, fast-paced vignettes.
Throughout the short Tom chats with good friend (and sometimes collaborator), Diego Guzman, about how and exactly why he does what he does.
