“We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!
For the 2nd installment of “By The Numbers”, we’ve called on John Watson/Prolly who runs the website Prolly is Not Probably. Read on.”
Oh no. ANOTHER interview? This one’s quite clever (who did I pick to be on my side in a fight?) and I love me some Defgrip. I’m honored to have made it through the intense lottery process and blood screening.
The newest issue of Greg Falski’s free online publication, Stoked on Fixed Bikes is now online. There’s a great article on Joe McKeag and a Other Side of Lens interview with me. Check it out above or on the Issuu page.
When it comes to getting durable, high quality vinyl stickers made, there’s only one place to go: Sticker Robot. I’ve been getting my clear vinyl stickers made there since the beginning and they are a very hot commodity. For those who always seem to miss out. Good news! More are on the way. I just ordered a re-up from them, which prompted the almighty Zoltron to interview me about PiNP, stickers and yes, bourbon in 10 simple questions.
Faz of 247 Bigtime met up with Jan Kole of Colossi last month during his stay in China last month for Asian FIxed Gear Championship. While there, he made this interview video, showcasing Jan and his factory.
Having been friends with Abe and Tyler since the very first prototype Outlier pants, I can say that I’m extremely proud of their accomplishments. Here’s Abe talking at the recent PSFK Conference in NYC:
“In this talk from PSFK CONFERENCE NYC, Abe Burmeister explains how a punk-rock ethic helped him create a business building a new niche in a market he had no experience in. Abe just wanted a pair of pants he could both ride his bike and go to work in – and all his partner Tyler needed was a shirt that stayed fresh despite his pedal-powered commute. The Outlier co-founder describes how the duo paired intensive research in New York’s garment district with the connectivity of the web to create Outlier – a performance fashion business that only sells over the web.”
I remember first “encountering” Tristan on the internet a few years ago. There was a photo of AJ doing a barspin on Flickr and Tristan critiqued the photographer, saying something along the lines of “shadows”. The photographer had placed the flash in a less than ideal location and Tristan was merely pointing it out. I thought it was an asshole move at the time, but I wasn’t aware of Tristan and the photographer’s past.
To call Tristan Afre passionate is an understatement. His moniker Gutstains, is already making waves on the 4th Reich known as The Come Up (I can joke, right?). Loving what you do and obsessing over it until you achieve perfection isn’t easy and Tristan’s definitely on that route. For more of a background on this #bmxiefamous photographer, head over to BMX Union for the read.
Getting to know Tristan and other BMX photographers like Cody Nutter is already helping me learn to shoot better and reading what these guys do will help you appreciate photography even more. Thanks for the color-correction last night Cody!
Lab8 from Milano interviewed Dave Trimble, founder of the world’s best track bike criterium, the Red Hook Crit. Dave talks about the races humble beginnings as a birthday celebration for him, the current state, Dan’s win and where he plans on taking it in the future.
