Well the bike thievery hasn’t taken a break this summer.
The go backwards from most recent.
I don’t really expect to find it again, but I want to put the word out to help make people aware that bike thieves are getting crazier.
My bike was stolen from the intersection of India and Franklin in Greenpoint late late night/early morning between July 14 & 15. Both wheels and frame were chained to a stop sign. someone cut the sign off and stole my bike over the top of the post!!! I never thought some one would do this! I always lock both wheels…but I NEVER thought a stop sign would get cut! Hopefully my loss can help other people safeguard against this.
My bike is a blackish surly steamroller, 3+ years of city road battle damage, black oury grips black front brake on the right handlebar, silver riser bar, silver cranks and chainring 49t [16t/18t flip flop back wheel fixed/fixed], silver toe clip cages with black double straps, black thomson seatpost, black uniciclator plastic seat. black deep v style wheels, front is a weinman dp 18 back is more generic w/soma hub.
odd that after 3 years i have no pictures, but it’s a generic frame i suppose. i made a flyer which i’m attaching.
thanks much for having this database. i don’t think i own anything i care about more.

“What is this?
All Hail The Black Market is a collection of stimulating flotsam, hand picked and curated with loving care in the singular hope to put the ‘cult’ back in bicycle culture. For too many years the bicycle industry has marketed to itself, a gigantic dog wearing blinders chasing its own tail. A place where artists, musicians, skateboarders, cyclists, photographers, thinkers, dreamers, pranksters, schemers, and general purveyors of mayhem can all come together in this- a bazzar for the bottom feeding creme of the crop. An alternative market place and hub of information exchange…
Welcome to a new world order.
Welcome to All Hail the Black Market.
Wanna make cool movies about bikes like this:

Ok, its back. My weekly bike video roundup.
First off a video by JC of Cyclehawk Studios.
Eric Xue from grandmighty put this video together from when he tagged along with Resil,Manny,Axel and myself(Carl) for some filming in the east bay.
Now silly rabbit, freestyle fixed gear tricks are for kids. When the skinny jeans set start bustin these moves…then I’ll be impressed.
Now here is a video, remembering American sports legend, Marshall “Major” Taylor, track bike champion in an annual race in Boston.
And this one found on Trackosaurusrex.com,
Now this video is causing a lot of Hype…MC SPANDEX, Performance. A roadie rapping about Performance, the name of the game…and he always rides through the pain. Truly Hilarious.
For two days in London Europe descended on a piece of tarmac for what proved to be one of the exciting hardcourt bike polo tournament of the year.
And, Palms Cycles in LA..This is the first annual Quadcomp that palms Cycles has put on. Included best trick comp, foot down(not shown), and lbc sprints comp.
