We are receiving late news that our friend Kachusha Munkanita is in need of legal support. He is one of the most peaceful people we have met, so when a story was published about his arrest, the bike community took notice. In short, he was arrested for watching 3 young people being arrested in the Mission, and wanting advocate for their saftey.
The least we can do is help gather resources for when he needs them. We are offering our Histogram Cap, with 100% of the profit (about $7 each) going to help support legal fees Chuey will incur.
Help support this local hero in the simplest form, and Get a cap. Once an additional fund raising event has been organized, we will post it here.
Jackie the man at Box Dog Bike just done with this beauty from ground up for his wife. I mean from custom tubing, bike building all that jazz. It has all the brazed on, holes, hangs, hinge you hella name it. Custom rack too dahum.
Ok I posted some pics here but go over to see more pic in the album cos the dudeman really did a good job with the custom frame. So if you need to get a nice one for ya love one, head over to Box Dog Bike They has all the nut and bolts to finish this up beautifully. They really do.
So starting today until May 7th(Kits should be delivered 4 weeks later.) we will be doing a pre-order for the Golden Saddle Cyclery kit made by Endo Customs here in Los Angeles, CA. The jersey can be purchased in white or black(you can even buy both like I did). A unisex bib and women’s short will be offered, along with arm warmers. Key features of each piece are listed on the items page. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Both the women’s and men’s jerseys are race cut. I’m not saying size up, that’s just the cut. You’ll have to decide how aero you wanna be. These things aren’t cheap by any means but compared to a lot of other brands out there I’d say say we’re offering up a pretty competitive price for premium goods manufactured here in the U.S. of A. And I’m damn sure you’ll be the best looking one on the ride, making you more confident and a better cyclist. ;)
On April 28, San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza will once again serve as the setting for the collision of fixed-gear biking and urban contemporary art known as Red Bull Ride + Style. After a highly successful inaugural kickoff in 2011 (see video below), the event returns even bigger and better for 2012.
Red Bull Ride + Style features fixed-gear riders facing off in both track and freestyle competitions, with the obstacles designed and decorated by San Francisco artists. In 2011, the event brought together more than 50 riders from both coasts, including riders from such fixed-gear meccas as San Francisco, Portland, New York and even Japan.
Last year’s top 10 finalists in both categories will be automatically invited back to this year’s event. While the remaining spots in freestyle are invite-only, the track competition will be open to all riders. A qualifying round on the Red Bull Mini Drome will be held on Thursday, April 26 at Mezzanine (444 Jessie St.) to see who makes it into the big show.
This year’s racetrack is being designed with input from selected participants from the 2011 Red Bull Ride + Style event. Details will be released on the new track and freestyle course prior to the event, so riders can prepare themselves properly for the demands of event day. Another update with the full list of invited freestyle athletes and more information about the event will be released shortly.
