Each week, we’ve been receiving little snippets of the forthcoming Bones Project from Firefly. Here’s the latest… Next week, the Bones project will be unveiled. I hope you’ve saved your pennies!
Firefly Bicycles: The Bones Project Part 3
Everyone has something beautiful to share from their ride, some just have the Himalayan mountains!
This looks so damn good!
A travelogue documentary featuring the third “Lords of Fun” trip… a 3-day, full throttle celebration of bikes, fire, stunts, chihuahas, zip lines and FUN!
Dropping Friday 13th
Make Your Bones
… and this is the best photo I’ve found on Flickr to commemorate it. Leave it to Porcelain Rocket to deck out this Salsa Muckluck with bags! Also, bike is in little ring because rules don’t apply to fatties. Next year, maybe I’ll post about Global Fat Bike Day a few days before… Did anyone else put in a ride on theirs?
People sure do love to meddle with the traditional tube layouts of the bicycle, in the name of form. Personally, I don’t mind and this Vanhulsteijn looks interesting enough. I like the frame treatment more than anything!
Here’s a synapsis:
“Exclusively for Sotheby’s Dutch designer Herman van Hulsteijn created a very special edition of 9 extraordinary Vanhulsteijn bicycles covered in a dazzling coat of Japanese Urushi lacquer and gold leaf.”

SSCXWC Qualifiers: normally, that means a bunch of clipless, singlespeed warriors racing around a closed course in some city park, but this year, it was in Philly and Philly don’t fuck around. More to come, but for now, see the rest of Dylan’s photos here!
I love the vintage Cinelli Laser track bike. The low pros and pursuits are nice, but the lines of the true track model never get old. Hrrundel has been playing with some studio photos of this bike and I found this one in particular worth the share. See more at the Hrrundel Flickr.
These are some screen shots from part 02 of the Ertzui film for AWOL. I can’t wait to see it! Miss part 01? Check it out here. Check out some more teaser shots here.

The pre and post-ride coffee spots of the world deserve as much credit as the rides themselves. I had never even heard of 10 Speed Coffee until Kyle shot these photos for Tracko. Very nice! See the rest here.
Having spent 48 hours with Mike Cherney on a bicycle, during Brovet #03, I can say without a doubt that he is one of the most unique individuals I’ve ever met and I mean that in the best way possible.
Mike is a true craftsman, so much so that Moots recently commissioned him to fabricate eight sterling silver headbadges. Each badge is made from 1 troy ounce of Sterling Silver.
The badges are now for sale at Moots, for $300 USD or you can read up on the process Mike used at the Moots Blog!
