Video Friday 8/3/13

Another installment of Video Friday:

Title: Pure Fix in the City
Featuring our X-RAY, this video takes you through Washington Square Park, SoHo, and the LES in NYC. It wasn’t easy to shoot, either, as our fingers nearly broke off in the cold.

Title:This is Marin
Seen on: Prolly
From Prolly:
I’ve only ridden in Marin county a handful of times and from what I can tell, I’ve only scratched the surface. Marin Bikes were developed there and here’s their new brand intro video.

Title:San Marco: We Ride with You Trailer
Seen on: Prolly
From Prolly:
Here’s a new campaign from one of the best saddle manufacturers of all time, San Marco:
“We want to share with you the emotions, that inspired us every time we create our products. To achieve this we realized a short film and we will soon have the pleasure to show it to you in its full length.
An emotional video to tell the spirit of our brand and to show a preview of the new products. To describe the history of the company, to talk about activities and tell through images, music and words the different cycling cultures and worlds, we ride with.
We Ride with You!”

Title:Welcome to the Hold Fast Kareem Shehab
Seen on: Prolly
From Prolly:

Kareem is now riding for Hold Fast, the makers of made in the USA components and frames. That’s a decision I can get behind. Here’s his welcoming edit to the team. Check it out as he rips with the 26″ Subverter frame.

Title:Les Alpes – Trailer
Seen on: Prolly

Every rider is unique in his motivations. The inspiration to escape the everyday routine, find new experience, and push limits comes from deep within. Imagery in this film acts like a window into the soul of a person seeking to live at the heart of the mountains. He’s driven to explore deeper and ride farther than most people, as a personal challenge coming in August 2013.

Title: Chrome and Crosby Press
Seen on: Urban Velo
It’s not that Chrome needs OUR help, but I really enjoy this interview video and the straightforward, no crap style of Chrome president Steve McCallion. There aren’t too many companies that have been around so long, are so successful, and appeal to such a broad audience, yet have retained the spirit of their humble beginnings. Steve seems to embody the Chrome brand as if it’s an extension of his personality. And we all know they don’t make crappy bags either. I have yet to visit a Chrome storefront, but I’ll certainly make the trip should I be close enough. Or, hey Steve, wanna open one in Indianapolis?

Title: Red Hook Crit Art Installation
Seen on: Urban Velo
Artist, Eric Corriel, was asked to create an installation for this year’s Red Hook Crit that just went down in Brooklyn. Last year he projected an animation onto a warehouse wall, but this year wanted to combine the projection with the riders themselves. As Corriel describes his piece,

“I was first asked to participate in the Red Hook Crit in 2012 and for that iteration I projected an animated abstraction of a bicycle race onto a warehouse. For 2013 I removed all elements of abstraction and put my art in direct contact with the race participants and projected onto (them and) the track itself. Instead of the art being about its subject, now it’s an inseparable part of it.”

See all of Corriel’s work here.

Here we go again:

Title: Hoodride Cycles
Seen on: Urban Velo
I love this little bio of Derrick in Phoenix who was annoyed with the soul-sucking red tape of running a business, so decided to just fix rides out of his backyard in an almost purposefully looking ramshackle garage. He talks about the stresses of doing it for the love, but also the value and reward of “localism”. Good on you Derrick.

Title: One Day in April-Documentary on the little 500-trailer.
Seen on: Urban Velo
The 2013 Little 500
qualifications took place in Bloomington, Indiana yesterday, just before the weather turned stupid and started snowing all over the place. With that in mind (the race, not the weather), this project needs one last push to come to fruition. The documentary, One Day in April, follows four teams as they prepare for this year’s Little 500 race, showing their passion and dedication to extremely amateur racing, the surprisingly hilly and beautiful terrain in Southern Indiana, along with the storied history of this unparalleled race. Many of you probably know the race primarily through the movie Breaking Away or our recent article in Issue 32, but this documentary gives a direct and intimate portrayal of the race’s story up to this point.

There are only 3 days left for the video to reach funding and incentives start with free digital downloads, t-shirts, photos, etc.

Video Fridays–New in 2013

Here are some videos to warm you up in the cold frigid weather.

St Louis Lock-In Pinata Video
Seen on: Urban Velo
The St Louis Bike Polo Lock-In was this past weekend, featuring another level of 24 hour indoor polo party mayhem. This was my third trip to this one of a kind event, and it gets better every time even if this year the sleep deprivation got the best of me and I found myself curled up in the back of a rental Kia at 4 am. This is video of the 4th annual pinata smashing that happens around 1 am, giving but a taste of the party. Until next year kids.

InRoads Trailer

InRoads is a short documentary about the handmade bike culture in the Denver/Boulder area. The full film will premiere on February 23rd in Denver. Visit their site for more updates.

State Bicycle Co. Team Issue Helmet by Lazer
Seen on: Urban Velo
Now that’s a good lookin’ helmet. Manufactured by Lazer, the State Bicycle Co. team issue helmet weighs in at 290 grams with 16 vents and they still manage to slap a good lookin’ logo on that thing. I’ve worn a Lazer helmet before and am glad to say it fit my weirdly small adult head just fine, while working for normal sized heads all the same.

You can buy the helmet for $69.99 on the State site.

Are YOU Cyclist?
Seen on: Urban Velo
Here’s an amusing video made by the shop Bike n Hike out of Portland. I get the feeling they’re going the Portlandia route on this one (a stereotype feedback loop?), but hey, it’s more amusing than the bike shop commercials in my neck of the woods.

Lance lies, when he cries and Jimmy Fallon goes country with it.

Poor Lance. Now it looks like some unreleased footage from the Oprah Winfrey interview may reveal Lance wasn’t telling the truth…gasp.

But seriously, is Lance really as bad as Joe’s lies?

After all she wrote 65 songs…all about pain.

Kind of like the pain Lance created by slandering his former massage therapist [...]
