Watch it again, for the first time...

This is an oldie, been online for 5 months now. One of the best drift combos I've ever seen @ 1:21-1:31. Ready for this one to release already. Coming out this summer?

Aaron and I played around Lynn Park a little bit after Critical Mass winded down. I got some good video of him as well that I'll post after he signs the consent form.

NYTimes article on fixed gear - shop/track/street culture


end joey,

Circle A

I first heard about this company from Clint. We spent 30 minutes trying to find their site. Now that I can see the details of one of their builds it's easy to appreciate the quality of their stuff.

Hardly relevant but remarkably fun

The past couple days I've been using a 3D picture/video viewer to browse youtube and flickr to fulfil my fixed gear content addiction. Every once in a while something like this will surface on the "internets" that is pretty revolutionary. Give it a go and let me know your thoughts.... I've had it installed on a PC browsing w/ firefox for about a week. The version for Safari is limited to 2.0-3.0.4. If you run Firefox on a Mac then you're in good shape.

Check it out...

also please take time to visit our sister site....

Who gave Steve Urkel a track bike

This is some good stuff, filmed well and the full (Ricky Martin) she-bang. If it weren't for that bugging kid in librarian tortoise shells and Alvin's Island tank tops it'd be darn near perfect. (If you've ever seen his stuff on Vimeo he cruises back by the camera after every trick to display a kind gesture. Hardly annoying at all...

enjoy, (it's almost 12 min)

Critical Mass NEXT FRIDAY - Let’s make this happen. Spread the word.

Please join Critical Mass for a ride around town, beginning at 6:00 at Linn Park. We'll probably ride for an hour or so, and the difficulty will depend on who shows up.

Velo shirt

Would you wear this? I'm thinking about making some shirts somehow. Hopefully using a means other than Rust-O-Luem.

If enough are interested I'll try to score some organic cotton shirts from AA and figure something out. $20 a piece too steep? If I could cover cost for less then well, less...

Ghost Riders

Walking back to our place after watching Andrew Bird at City Stages, I noticed two road bikes locked to a street sign.  I crossed the street just to check them out and they were both fixed.  One was white w/ a yellow seat and the other red w/ white deep v's?  Any clues who's bikes these are?  I've never seen either...

Great looking frames coming from Freeman Transport. Frames break apart for compact travel. When I powdered my frame I felt like I got a little carried away with how many parts I ran. Freeman's running even more and it's looking really good. Can't wait to see these on the road. (on youtube...)

The Weather Outlook

Yesterday I went skating for a whole 10 minutes before it stared pouring. However, just a couple of hours later two of my homies were mashing downtown. Here's the forecast for this Fathers Day weekend in Birmingham from ABC 3340:

Wet And Stormy At Times
Look for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms across Alabama today and tomorrow. UNSETTLED WEATHER: Alabama will remain in a very moist environment for the next 36 hours, and our forecast package will highlight scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms today and tomorrow. While most of the showers and storms will come during the afternoon and evening hours, a few nighttime and morning showers are not out of the question. Like recent days, thunderstorms will. have the potential to drop heavy amounts of rain in a brief time, and the storms will also be capable of producing strong winds, small hail, and a bunch of dangerous cloud to ground lightning. Due to the clouds and showers, temperatures will have a hard time getting out of the mid 80s today and tomorrow.

We believe showers and storms will become fewer in number Sunday as drier air tries to work into Alabama, and by Monday the chance of rain is so small that we have left it out of the forecast for now.

Bootleg Peel Sessions

Thanks Mark for bringing me on board.

These post is about a week old so pardon the latency. These are way to good to neglect.
