Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…
Great preview vid for the 2014 Red Hook Crit season, kicking off in Brooklyn at the end of March. Stuckylife has been talking about sending a rider or three for a couple years now, any brand out there want to come on board as a gold-tier sponsor?
My first-gen shop kit from MASH is probably my fav in the closet, mellow grey/black combo with the sponsor logos and that amazing Capo race cut. This new release black on black 2014 shop kit is all killer, an updated murdered-out version of the OG, perfect for the forthcoming road race season (if you roll lone wolf like that), or just keeping it real on group rides and solo centuries. Hit the shop to cop , you know it’ll sell through fast.
Great interview with Quadra Island-based Sam Whittington and his Naked Bicycle co, some of the finest hand-made bikes on the planet. Sam’s client and wait list speaks for itself, and even better is his impressive record of riding, from the human-powered land speed records through to racing Expert in our local cross circuit on a single speed (and always wearing distinctive socks). A Naked road and/or track bike is bucket list material for me, one day… for now, watch and get insight in to soul craft philosophy and why it’s the sustainable route forward.
This short doc features the works and ethos of Bixente, the owner of Bixente Moto, a full custom garage based Biarritz France. Everything is dialled in this shop, from vintage motos through bicycles and furniture… if you’re like us and prefer your goods to be old and weathered, this vid is a ruling way to start your Monday.
Pretty in to trackbikes with risers/flat bars right now, also pretty down with Batillus, and always in to suffering on the bike – Rainier brings the pistons out on this Fillmore climb, another entry in MASH’s rider short clips series (all of which have been awesome).
Here is the latest from the Chrome Films series featuring Massan and the newest Chrome bag; the Barrage Cargo. We are no strangers to the hill slayer that is Massan, constantly featuring any vid that he is a part of and this one is much like the rest and I mean that in a really good way. I don’t have too much else to say other than its a great thing this guy has a shoe sponsor as he literally burns rubber down these hills, and not in you typical way.
