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: Heavy Pedal “Flying Tiger”
For the launch of their new “Flying Tiger” kit from Heavy Pedal

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.

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
“Rising from Ashes” is a feature length documentary about two worlds colliding when cycling legend Jock Boyer moves to Rwanda, Africa to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of a national team. As they set out against impossible odds both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past.

Title: Nelson Vails Documentary Teaser
Seen on: Urban Velo

Title: Biketoberfest in Buffalo
Seen on: Urban Velo
Bikes, Beer, Music, Party. That about sums it up. In case it’s not clear from the video, “Rusty Chain” is a beer specifically designed/brewed by local brewer Flying Bison to raise money and awareness for local cycling. Check out gobikebuffalo.org.

Pure Fix Cycles hook up!

I got home from vacation to a brand new bicycle!

Pure Fix Cyles sent this sweet track bike, which came practically built in the box. A few tools and I easily put it together.

Now it’s time for a test spin!

Thanks Pure [...]

Video Monday-I missed Video Friday

Sorry, here are a few videos to prolong your Monday.

This video has been passed around like wildfire, so I assume most people know about it.

Last year Red Peak created an experimental calender for Hudson Urban Bicycles. In their words: January 1st 2011 we took a fully loaded bike, bells, basket, lights and [...]

Video Friday, the last of 2011

Here are a bunch of videos to round out that old has-been year, 2011.

Rick Rowland sent me this compilation of images of the things dreams are made of around Christmas time…Bicycles. Here are a montage of stills of how the bicycle in incorporated into people’s holiday cheer.
