DENNY WINS BIKE DESIGN CONTEST

And the winner is
Sizemore and Teague win the 2014 Oregon Manifest Bike Design Contest with their bike, the Denny. I could not be more proud and happy for one of my best friends to rightfully win something of this magnitude. Especially because no we all get a chance to buy this bike!

SEA OREGON MANIFEST REVEAL PARTY

A Frame Sign
On Friday night, we stopped by AXIS Pioneer Square for the Oregon Manifest Seattle Bike Reveal Party. It was an awesome turn out and a phenominal space. The Denny bike, designed by Teague and Sizemore Bicycle, was the focal point of this night leaving many blown away by the quality and continuity of design. Every couple of minutes a person would tap a brake lever and get the turn signals  or brake light going, marveling at the integration of all the features.  Before the event, I asked Chelsey if she would shoot photos of the reveal party for the blog for a couple reasons: I knew I’d be enjoying it and nerding out on the bike and videos and I knew she’d find more artistic ways to represent the space, party and bikes…. And she did. See more pics below, and make sure to VOTE.

THE BIKE DESIGN PROJECT

The Bike Design Project voting is live. I was impressed by all of the bike’s created and their innovative features, but none compare to what was accomplished by Teague X Sizemore Bicycle in the entry “Denny”. This bike has integrated turn signals, headlights, brake light, electronic assist, automatic shifting, minimal revolutionary fender design, u-lock removable handlebars, belt drive, the sickest integrated front rack and it was made here in Seattle.

RESCUE

Painting by El Greco 1560 A.D.

Stumbled across this poem I had written for Leah Dankertson’s blog, Rough Hewn last advent. Based on Romans 3:9-26

None is righteous, no not one.

No one understands
no one seeks God
All turned aside, worthless they have become
no one does good, not even one.
Their throat is an open grave,
they use their tongues to disobey
the venom of asps upon their lips.
Their mouth curses with bitterness.
Their feet are swift to shed blood
ruin and misery in the paths are done.
The way of peace they have not known;
no fear of God within their bones.

Yet

The righteousness of God manifested;
law and prophets bear witness to it.
Through faith in Christ those who believe
with no distinction, deemed free.
Propitiation by His Blood
and rescued from the sinful flood.
Righteousness shown at present time;
justified are those with faith in Thine.

KIT-YOURSELF


RADAVIST KIT


TRACKO SNOW CAMO KIT

Well this week two amazing people produced two amazing, made in the U.S.A. Endo Customs cycling kits. Tracko just opened up the pre-order for his new Snow Camo jersey and camo bibs and John just posted his RADAVIST kit for sale on the site. I love the simplistic and intentional design on both these kits. I will be posting the Geopolitan Party Shred Club kit for pre-order in the next couple weeks; just can’t compete with these guys!
