A T-Shirt That Really Takes the Piss out of me…

What happens when a bunch of fixed gear loving Italians have a few drinks and take a nice chilly ride from Milano to a lake near Arona? Well they probably have to piss at least once. Why not do it together.

Now this iconic image has been made into a limited run t-shirt [...]

Title: Brompton Urban Challenge-Milano-BFF 2012
Seen on: Urban Velo
Ah yes, those aged hipsters on Brompton’s or at least the aged being so aged they now look like hipsters. Anyways, Brompton hosted an Urban Challengein Milano complete with a folding contest, some sort of crashing into boxes finale and other tweedtastic camaraderie. It’s like alleycat culture for the retired. Nah, it actually looks like a good time, if clown bikes are your thing. I kid, I kid.

Video Friday, 10/19/12

Videos! Yeah. To help with the doldrums of Friday.

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.

See more of her work here.

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
Seen on: Urban Velo
