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.

Rapha Europe’s Radical Rides

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.)

Wraith Fabrication


“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.

Smile X Suffer

This photo John posted is just perfect. You know he’s done after a long day working for Wiggo, but he’s only got smiles.

GRIND


I love this photoset John posted on The Radavist. So good, I can’t wait to see the video. Also this makes me want a carbon all purpose road bike so bad. Been loving the below options:

Specialized ROUBAIX SL4 Red Disc

Specialized CRUX EVO Disc

Cinelli Zydeco (not carbon but awesome)

GOOD FRIDAY

afterlight (1)

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!

LEADER X Gorilla Smash Squad


I hadn’t heard of these dudes before but I love this. Leader Bikes supporting a grass roots team of friends. I love the bike photos (below), each unique and yet similar, just like real friends. Great shots Matt.
