EXIT Through The Gift Shop

If you haven't seen Exit Through the Gift Shop and have any interest in urban should watch it. The film is amazing and documents the life of Thierry Guetta, a psychotic "film maker" who follows the likes of Space Invader, Shepard Fairey and BANKSY himself. After years of following urban artists with his video camera, and a little help from BANKSY, Thierry becomes Mr. Brainwash, an overnight art sensation. When I first saw the film I was blown away especially because the last time I was in NYC I visited a Mr. Brainwash pop-up show without even knowing who he was. CRAZY!

Mad Whip

Spotted on PEDAL Consumption

I absolutely love skid pictures, especially in the fall. There is nothing like kicking up some freshly fallen leaves. Those Sram s80's are pretty Ill too.

Good Thinking SE?

broken ripper from Fixed Shit Up

"Hey I have an idea, lets add more strangely angled pieces of metal until it doesn't break anymore!"

Spotted on Zlog

"Good idea."

Not only is this one of the ugliest frames I have ever seen but I can see almost no practical use for two crossing top tubes. If strength was the issue I think there are a number of other ways to go about improvement. I hope the "Quad Fixed Prototype" stays that a prototype. I think the boys over at SE got a little too excited after Oakley agreed to do a collab.

Crank, Crank, CRANK




A few "CrANk" sketches I have been messing around with over the past couple of days, I think I like the first one the most.

Velodrome Construction

Spotted on Tracko

I was looking at this picture yesterday and when I saw it I instantly thought of the famous picture where a group of construction workers are eating lunch on an I-beam. Then after reading the caption, it said the same exact thing! It blew my mind. Either way I have a soft spot for black and white photographs and this is an awesome picture.

Freestyle Fix

Spotted on PEDALconsumption

Spotted on Prolly

Getting big over a nice set AND a gnarly tailwhip. Fixed gear freestyle is getting closer and closer to BMX everyday (although it still has a long way to go).
