As cyclists, many of us forget that May is bike month. How exactly is that different than any other month? It really isn’t, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up some of the Super 7 cycling shirts:
“From the top left to bottom right:
Bike Collage - For the two wheeled enthusiast, we put together a collage of 18 different bicycles. No matter what you ride, show your love for pedal power!
Cali Chain - Ride hard, ride fast, ride California.
MPG - Bike Ride forever…
Giro di Paris - Paris Bicycle Tour!
Bike Mess - Three lane pile-up reaches critical mass!
Giro di San Francisco - San Francisco bicycle tour!”
It’s never too late for a quick Merckx Mondays is it? Thanks to Chas of the Messenger Mansion for the supplied art and you can see two more gems below.
What’s up Kelli? Adam from FFFFixas makes illustrations from photos of girls on track bikes. This one’s gotta be from the portrait I took of Kelli during the 2012 NAHBS after she finished the Mash TT. I recognize some other photos in there too.
I’m digging this work. Keep at it Adam!
I missed out on posting Woof‘s Happiness on a Bicycle 01 but 02 makes up for it. Love this!
As far as collaboration bikes are concerned, anything involving Geoff Mcfetridge is going to turn out stunning. This newest Beautiful Bicycle comes from English Cycles:
“Last year, Jason at Fairwheel bikes in Tucson approached me about building a frame for a customer who wanted a singlespeed road bike to have custom paint by artist Geoff McFetridge. Seemed simple enough. But then Jason had an idea about doing a single-sided frame…. Generally always being up for a design challenge, I said sure, and set about figuring out how I would do it.”
See more here and thanks for informing the world about this Tracko!
Terrance from Heavy Pedal entered a poster show in Phoenix called Pedal Craft with this homage to the movie Breaking Away.
I’m digging the British vibes Woof is putting out in this new sketch. I spy a Titan Luxe bar and stem and a Chater Lea headset. Keep it up man, more of this.
No explanation needed, just Chris Piascik doing this thing. Love this, man!
This killer lino print was made in 2011 by an LA artist named Angelina Elise. It’s titled “My Time in Echo Parque” and is a perfect seque into warmer weather. She no longer has the print for sale, but you can see her Etsy here and her work at a forthcoming show in Long Beach called American Hicksters.
This is on my list of “must haves” while I’m in NYC. I love it when artists do graphics that aren’t their usual M.O. I wouldn’t have known this was Jeremy Fish unless you told me! Swoop them up at NYC Velo.
