Title: Crosstown Couriers
Seen on: Urban Velo Rudy Gonzalez of Cowtown Couriers was featured in Urban Velo #33′s feature story, Pushing Beyond The Envelope about the changing face of the bicycle courier industry. This video was shot to show the Cowtown Courier direct to consumer food delivery service in action, adding some video context to the story and looking nothing like the typical image of legal documents being rushed here and there in downtown traffic.
Title: Taliah Lempert
Seen on: Urban Velo If you’ve been in the urban cycling scene for any time at all, you’ve undoubtedly stumbled across some of Taliah Lempert’s bicycle paintings. Her work has adorned magazine and book covers, gallery walls and more. Lempert is commissioned to paint people’s individual rides, which she keeps in her studio as she works on them instead of painting from photos. She says a painting might take her a couple weeks to finish as she painstakingly reproduces the rides in her style.
Title: Lance Armstrong Nike Parody
Seen on: Urban Velo
I guess Radioshack won’t be asking me to donate a dollar to livestrong any more when I buy cheap electronics. Looks like sponsors like the shack and Nike have pulled the plug on their now disgraced hero, Lance Armstrong, since the recent US Anti-doping Agency has labeled him a “cheater.” Urban Velo reminds us of this parody video that rings more true than ever.
Title: Rising From Ashes

I have to give a big shout out to Fyxation, makers of sleek fixed gear cycling parts and now frames (more on this in a minute.) They were super kind to answer my request for some new pedals and foot straps. For you brakeless fixed gear riders out there who haven’t tried a foot [...]
