Cadence: Turbo Pt. 2







Damn, Cadence hits it out of the park with this summer kit release for part 2 of the Turbo collection. The white/pink grid design is on point for warm weather riding, shouts out to the DeFeet shoe covers especially as well as the Purist tall bottles (necessary for summer sufferfests).


Scott Pommier: Born Free

 ‘A short film about man, machine and man’s best friend, advertising the BORN FREE motorcycle show.’


Born-Free 5 Invited Builder Series

Born-Free has become the premier custom vintage bike show in the US and perhaps the world, and the 5th edition goes down late June… as per usual the show has been releaseing builder profiles in the leadup and these are my two favourite so far, the California based Noise Cycles and Cycle Zombies. Different styles and different stories but both very rad, watch and enjoy


Deus: Festival of Thump




[vimeo 61187514 w=500 h=281]

Sometimes I think we could easily become a Deus tribute blog, but anyway. Thumpers, the single-cylinder 4-stoke beasts (who’s sound obviously informs the name) hold a very special place in the 84/85 black hearts: we both ride ’em on the daily. The stable consists of an SR500 and an XT550, workhorse bikes, light, torquey and instantly recognizable by sound from a few blocks away. And while we’re all Yammy over here there’s plenty of thumpers out there, and recently Deus decided to throw their first ever proper motorcycle show at the California Emporium of Postmodern Activities in honour of the vaunted single. SO MANY COOL BIKES showed up, what can I say, wish I could have been there more than any cool chop show, that’s for sure. Enjoy the images and check the Deus recap for more.


Iron & Resin Fall 2013 Lookbook Video

[vimeo 55758662]

It’s been a minute since we’ve featured anything from Scott Toepfer, so why not start your Wednesday with one of the best video lookbooks to ever grace the internet. Iron & Resin give a look at their f/w 2013 collection, shot mostly at Big Sur on the mid California coast, and all I can think about right now is packing up the gear, getting on the bike and going until the beans and gas money runs out. Beautiful work from Toepfer and more great promo collateral from I&R, stoke all around.


Brixton Holiday 2012

We’d be remiss if we didn’t post a new Brixton video, as every >2 min motion piece from the label is a reminder to do more dream chasing and less paper pushing. This vid features their holiday 2012 collection, the same rugged SoCal vibe the label has always pushed, something you can believe in.


Massan for Chrome Truk

Short clip of Massan bombing on that gorgeous Low, promoting Chrome‘s new shoe the Truk, which actually looks pretty rad. I might even wear them if I wasn’t married to Shimano road clips or Vans. Love the moves Chrome has been making with new bags, kicks and apparel, respect.
