The newest video from Deux North‘s Hunt series is pretty rad. It’s not just a bunch of dudes climbing a mountain, there’s a dialog here, a tie in with the local’s favorite past time: the demolition derby. Check it out!
Here’s that full-length web video from Dosnoventa‘s time in NYC. Don’t forget to check out a few previous photosets below if you haven’t already!
… on a bike! Keep on top of his craziness at the Casey Neistat Facebook. On a serious note, my thoughts are with everyone who’s been affected by this storm.
Seth Rosko is much more than a frame builder to me. He’s a good friend and someone that I just enjoy being around. Seeing him build bikes is just an added bonus. Everyone claims to be a New Yorker, but Seth is one of those guys who was around when it all began. A huge advocate in the local skate scene and ex-Brooklyn Machine Works builder, he’s seen the cycling scene in NYC change over the years.
For the past few months, he’s been pushing grassroots racing in NYC. Building road and cross racing frames for fledgling teams and local racers. Most notably, the King Kog cross bikes, a bike for Matthew of Cicli Devotion and a few other road bikes for some local female racers.
During my short stay in NYC, I swung by Rosko Cycles to see how Seth makes use of his small, cramped work space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
During our ride to Philly from Brooklyn, I had the pleasure of staring down this beauty. My friend Harry Swartzman is close friends with Jamie Swan, a frame builder residing on Long Island, NY. Jamie’s work is very precise, clean, classy and yet, Harry’s bike falls into his atypical character.
Harry wanted a light tourer, with modern lines. A long, slammed stem, with a sloping top tube and fits much more like a road bike than a tourer. Just look at the drive-side elevation. It’s mean! Jamie often prefers more traditional road, randonneur and tourers but I think this frame is exquisite.
This year, my friend Harry from NYC emailed me, asking if I’d be interested in riding from Brooklyn to Philly for the Bike Expo, like we did two years ago. I needed no persuading. I booked my ticket and before I knew it, I found myself in Brooklyn for a few days.
Today we rode to Philly and the route is amazing this time of year. I haven’t seen Autumn in years and man, it was in full vibrancy. Here’s a few Instagram shots, with 35mm on the way.
Our route looks complicated, but is actually pretty simple. Try it out yourself.
