BRYANANTON_2014_COLLINADE_TYLER-5

I went and hit up the 1-5 Colonnade MTB Park last weekend with Bryan, who took these photos. I’ve been having a blast riding the converted disc Sizemore TT bike, unfortunately while riding around my chain broke, but it didn’t keep me from having fun in the pump track. This bike is going to see some changes coming soon that I can’t wait to share, but will have to.

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.

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.

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.)

“We want to have fun. Shred. It doesn’t matter what kind of bike you’re on. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing. Our machines are made here in the USA by hand. We’re celebrating the brotherhood. It’s about the ride. It’s about getting more folks on a crazy nice frame. We want to see where you ride. We want to hear about your adventures. It’s an honest, sincere desire to fit folks on the best bikes possible. No over design, just simple items made from the best materials available”. – Adam Eldridge – Owner of Wraith Fabrications

He said it himself, SHRED. I couldn’t agree more with Adam’s words and I couldn’t be more into this bike. If I wasn’t 100% set on getting disc brake 28c+ bike I’d buy this immediately. *edit I ordered one!  You can Pre-Order here.
