Anecdote: unsanctioned bike racing on the street has come a long way. Back in the olden days when Brendan and I were racing alleycats it was all beer and jean shorts: now, when you show up to sprints or a checkpoint race most everyone is in kit, myself included. Dudes (and ladies) take this stuff seriously these days, and in my opinion, it’s way more awesome for it. This vid by LA’s Wolfpack Hustle promotes their 2013 Unified Title race series and it is awesome… if this doesn’t get you jacked to ride your fastbike then you’re doing it wrong.
Here is a look at another new Japanese label that popped on the radar this season, Rottweiler with their spring/summer 2013 collection lookbook. The label has a real 60’s feel to it, with some greaser styles mixed with some surf inspirations as well as some more dressier styles. Digging the paisley prints as well, which I have been noting in a lot of collections this spring.
Part 2 of the MC roadtrip we featured back here, Edwin and Kingdom of Kicks still making it look amazing.
Riding personally customised bikes with a couple of old tents thrown in, no map, a healthy dose of rain, old skateboards and knackered out surf boards, Nico’s famous catapult, and eyes for mischief and adventure, the marauding members of the ‘FURTHER’ crew celebrate the best of times putting their product to the test.
