The 2012 Red Hook Crit Milano is almost here. Are you ready?
Check out one more poster for the event below.
Princeton Architectural Press has published a book called Instant: The Story of Polaroid. I know plenty of film buffs read this site, so I thought I’d share.
Anytime I put up a post about a poster or an illustrator, a reader always recants with another. It’s like a viscous cycle (literally). It’s not often however that I see one that I like. Leo Espinosa‘s work is the exception though. This piece, along with others on his portfolio site are great. See for yourself.
POC, a Swedish company that just introduced their Tempor helmet and personally, I like the design, as far as time trial helmets go. The Tempor helmet comes in blazing orange and black, both of which are featured at POC’s website. The more I look at this thing, the more I like it. Is that wrong? If you’re going to Interbike, swing by their booth (19131) and see for yourself.
Look, I’m not a huge fan of overly-designed “concept bikes” or folding bikes either, but after spending some time on a Brompton, I’m at least being swayed in the direction of a latter. Maybe that’s why this folding bike by artist / architect Mikuláš Novotný caught my eye. It utilizes 26″ wheels, which effectively breaks it down to about the size of an S&S couplered bike for locking up, shipping or storage inside your apartment. While it’d take a lot to convince me this is the way to go for “urban cycling”, at least it’s a step in the right direction. Or is it?

I don’t even know what’s going on there but I dig it.
