Some nice portraits of london cyclists, A simple idea that captures the diversity of cycle culture. Ace shots of cyclists and their rides, and a nice blog on bike culture to boot. Check it out HERE.
The first video feature of the event itself from Red Bull with some lovely footage. Nice to see the logo we designed in full effect on the track and on the specially commissioned sprocket trophys and Charge frame (with custom headbadge) for the winners. Good to see mountain bike and trial rider Chris Akrigg taking the win. Some great images by Roman Skyva here.
We designed the logo for the Red Bull Mini Drome event recently and here’s the new trailer. Top fixed gear riders from across the UK are ready to do battle this Saturday, January 15, when the world’s smallest velodrome hits York Hall in London’s East End. Registration closes at 5pm, January 10 if your interested, I would but i’ve got gears. For more info visit redbull.co.uk/minidrome
When I first found out about this it was a complete surprise, two friends I grew up riding BMX with have designed a completely new bike. Johann Chan the owner and designer at Emer has a long history in BMX, producing clothes, sponsoring riders, making videos, organising competitions as well as still being a great rider today.
Tired of being overtaken by mountain bikes, racers and folding bikes on his 12 mile commute to work. Johann wanted to design a new kind of bike that rides with modern BMX geometry but with the benefits of the large, fast wheels that you’d find on a cruiser,. It has the same agile body position as a modern BMX but combined with a short rear end making it perfect for manuals, a cruiser for people who want to beat fixies to the pub.
Mark Noble at Deluxe helped with tried and tested quality manufacturing, the design is simple and elegant in gloss black and gold with graphics created by typeface designer Seb Lester – also a BMX flatland rider – bringing the image of the Swift to life with beautiful hand drawn lettering and head badge, also available in gold and black print t-shirts here.
The bike is in prototype stages at the moment, and should be out hopefully by the end of the year.
