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.

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!

NOBODY LOVES JOEL ROMEO


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.

MERIT BERG

Europa

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.
