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!
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.

This is a great short documentary of a Ballard legend. Joel Romeo used to frequent Blackbird all the time when I worked there. I wish I had taken the time and effort to get to know him a little better. I love his drawings and comics, and his always smiling face. Make sure you go vote for this video – here.
This morning I was reminded of the painting instructor at the community college I attended. Her name is Merit Berg, and she had an fantastic exhibition there while I was enrolled. To this day, it was one of the most impactful moments art has had on my life. The paintings, which are huge, stopped me dead in my tracks and I felt like I just starred at them for hours. The detailed garments are unbelievable. I also love the mix of modern shapes with a very romantic painting style decorating a beautiful waste landscape.
John posted the Rapha Hidden Europe Video today, which is a great watch, and it reminded me of all the cool bikes I had seen when I originally watched it. After searching around some for these beautiful black rides, I found out that Rapha had shot amazing photos of them and posted on their site. I cannot wait for my all black made in the U.S.A. steel disc road bike to be finished! Until then, Enjoy (click on image to be taken to original post.)
Great short seen originally on DEFGRIP
Today is Good Friday, and as I prepare to unpack the darkness of what took place on this day all those years ago, I was reminded by yesterday’s crazy weather just how beautiful it is when light breaks through darkness. This Sunday we will celebrate Jesus overcoming the darkness of sin and death with the triumph of His Resurrection!
