I was looking through a bunch of pictures I took off of the internet over the past couple of months and came across this gem.  According to Tre3e Fixed, where the photo originally came from, the cyclist is March Sich of the Apologie Bike Polo Team playing an unnamed horse polo player. Pretty wild shot, it would be cool to watch a horse vs. bike polo game (so dangerous). I'm also a sucker from black and white shots.

Peonfx Presents: Douple P

Double P from peonfx on Vimeo.

As many of you know by now, there has been an EXPLOSION of fixed gear oriented riders, shops and independent brands popping up in Singapore and Indonesia, specifically Jakarta.  It is awesome to see how fixed gear cycling is spreading throughout the world and progressing in so many ways. Peonfx in conjunction with Cyclonesia, Sumvelo and Faz Adhili just put out this rad little clip featuring the new Pias track frame.  Lately I have been seeing more and more Pias builds on the likes of Pedalroom and Velospace and man are they looking good.  The frame is relatively inexpensive (approximately 275 US dollars for frame and fork), the welds are smooth, it's steel and the color is killer; I would love to build one of these bad boys up.  As always, great film work by Faz, it's definitely a solid watch and props to the riders.  I know from experience, riding brakeless in hilly, wet conditions can get pretty hairy.

A Day In The Life


Today I spent the day walking around with some friends, checking out a few different places in south Philly.  The first stop was an awesome coffee shop called Grindcore House which is a rad shop on the corner of South 4th Street and Grenwich, with great coffee and an atmosphere to match (their logo is SO sick).  The Philadelphia Record exchange was next on the list; with walls and walls of records and CD's, it's not hard to get lost in the "mess".  Next we hit up Maoz on South Street for some delicious falafel sandwichs loaded with pretty much any topping you could imagine. To cap off the day we took a look around Bicycle Revolutions where I drooled over Fuzzy's All-City Mr. Pink for a little while along with the unbelievable collection of track frames they have hanging from the ceiling.  All in all it was a great day spent in the company of some good friends!
