The Jungle

Allright folks, it’s Friday, it’s winter, it’s raining all day, every day. Not the best time of the year for us day to day bike freaks. It’s a steady routine of getting wet, having the wind freeze your cheeks, fixing flats with icy hands and getting wet over and over and over again. In fact, ...

Critical Hit

Competitive comparison seems to be a worldwide phenomenon amongst people in general. No matter what age, surroundings, financial circumstances. Who’s got the freshest kicks? Whose smartphone cam can record more fps? Who can down his beer the fastest? Who’s getting the pole position on the next red light when commuting to work? Who is the ...

Purity

We’re living in a time where people are searching for something ‘real’, something natural, something ‘pure’ because from our clothes to our food, our relationships, our jobs, our news and our communication, a hell of a lot of things are watered down and packed up in so much plastic it’s hard to breathe freely sometimes. But ...

Attitude

Monday. A day like any other basically but if you’re caught in modern day living Monday can be a drag. You might still be recovering from the weekend, the rest of the world is in grumpy Monday mood and most of us attend work rather unwillingly. Forcing your body outside while your brain is still ...

Forty-Five

It’s July 2015 and once again the cycling world is about to hit its annual climax. The Tour de France is in full effect, local triathlons draw thousands of pumped up aero-conscious strava junkies, fixed gear global tours are being recorded from all possible angles and street crits are the new superbowl. The urban cycling ...

New Age

Does anyone remember the time when the word ‘fixie’ wasn’t yet invented? It was a time when the cycling world fought out its battles amongst itself and the mainstream didn’t notice cause other things were drawing the lifestyle oriented urban person’s attention much harder than bikes did. The word ‘yuppie’ was all too present, Michael Jordan ...

Signs Of Scenes

The term ‘voyeurism’ might result in somewhat negative connotations when read since it is solely defined as something sexual. Not like we’re turned on by spying on bikes while hiding in bushes, but still, ‘voyeurism’ as in ‘the pleasure of looking at something’ describes our intentions quite well. Even if sometimes it’s a pretty sadistic pleasure, as we mostly portrait ...

Club Ride

Saturday night, big city lights, everybody’s out havin a good time. What sounds like the hookline of the latest EDM infused, quasi rap meets pop mainstream production is actually tough reality if you’re living in a bigger city. And because everybody is out havin a good time, we gotta get into it, too. So lets see, as ...

Superdad

There are a lot of ‘heroes’ in the world of cycling. Tour de France winners, Elite track champions, Paris-Roubaix survivors and so forth. Then there are the self proclaimed day to day heroes like messengers or critical mass participants, alleycat attendees and the ever so famous fixed gear crews doing whatever scores the highest scene credit ...

Add On

Every year round springtime you get a front row seat at the great show of cycling styles even if you choose to not take part. You simply set a foot outside and are almost run over by a fixed gear cause the rider was too busy looking at his new cycling shoes or admiring the ...
