Jean Pool

In recent months it has been no secret that Levi's has jumped headfirst into the cycling world. Between collaborations with Prolly is not Probably, the release of an entire "commuter" collection and this...amusing bicycle.  It has definitely been an interesting process to follow and I most of their additions to the community are very good ones.  Really what inspired this post is the "Go Fourth" advertising campaign seen above.  For some reason the words and actions in this commercial really stuck with me.

The new Levi's commuter pant is so rad; with a U-lock holster, WATERPROOF technology and a few other nifty features these puppies were made for everyone who rides their bike on a daily basis. They are absolutely perfect for someone (like myself) looking for a solid pair of pants made to take on the wear and tear of cycling and don't cost $188 a pair.

Bar Ends

Photobucket I just came home to a shiny new pair of Mash bar ends and I am so stoked! They are such an upgrade from the broken plastic ones I've been using for the last couple months. It might not look like a huge upgrade but man are they nice. Too bad it's a torrential downpour outside. You can cop your own here.

Peaceful Destruction

Although I would never considered myself to be a serious artist I can always find satisfaction in doing a bit of drawing, painting or building now and then.  I haven't had much to speak of in the cycling world or otherwise so I thought I would share my latest sketch of a bouquet growing out of a hand grenade.  I made a stencil very similar to this a while back and wanted to draw it more realistically; this is what I came up with.  It's not completely finished but you get the idea.

The 5th Floor

The 5th Floor - High Speed Promo Banner from The5thFloor on Vimeo.

Ever since Rudy Melo and the rest of The 5th Floor folks joined the blogosphere I have been sure to keep up with all that is 5th Floor.  It is definitely one of the best fixed gear specific blogs out there and it's constantly progressing and growing.  The way things are going I'm definitely expecting big things from them in the future but for now check out this awesome high speed banner they just put up on their site.
