Same seller's got a bunch of other nice stuff too..

The ever illustrious Campagnolo Tool kit:

If anyone wants to buy that for me by all means feel free. I'll make you free frames for days!

I'd never seen one in person til I got to use the one Koichi had in his shop. I was telling him how jealz I was about it and he confessed to having two more in storage 8-I

Absolute. Fucking. Bull Shit..

That last one is in particularly frustrating BTW..

I'm fucking gasping over here.. the sheer size and scope of this mother fuckers collection and space:





Unfuckingbelieve huh? So reddic! The only thing missing are the virgins chained to the wall awaiting sacrifice..

This FULLY NOS 85' Jack Taylor Tour of Britain SLAYED me: did this SUPER SEXY 87' Hetchins Magnum Opus:

Yeah, the photos are of horrible quality for the most part. It's like watching a softcore after being exposed to the current level internet porn out there- just. can't. get. into it..

I had a look through the rest of his stream and he has some super gnarly shit but it's mostly a tease since you can't really see things very clearly. This photo is nice cause he has everything listed in the notes. Be sure to scope out the rest of his stream when you get a chance. Lots of nice tid bits in there worth a look.. is this


Not sure how I missed this but..'s never too late to catch a bunch of topless chicks posing for photos with bikes (NSFW):

Ben Watts - Issue 2 - Part 1 from on Vimeo.

..oh diiiiig

Apparently there's going to a part 2 to this story or shoot or wtf ever it is from Treats Magazine. Never heard of it before but it kinda reminds me of a more sophisticated (I use that term loosely) man's version of Sweets magazine. Which btw is amazing if you want to see what it's like to have your eyes pop out of their sockets for an elongated period of time..

Seen on Prollz..


Philly Bike Expo: NEXT WEEKEND!!

Along with a myriad of other events including the Brooklyn Bike Jumble, Rapha gentlemen's ride, Fashion show, and other various races and parties! October 29 and 30th..

Everyone who made it out last year had a great fucking time! Much more laid back and casual than any other show I've been to. Lots of amazing food from the best of Philly's food carts along with an abundance of alcohol on tap. For those of you who weren't unable to attend last years expo, be sure to make the trip this year to check it out!


Damn, another sweet Yamaguchi on the bay!

Sweet Yamaguchi Aero and a Nagasawa WITH BRAKES!

The pics of the Yamaguchi suck but the frame is sure to be awesome along with it's $900 price tag:

There's always a few Nagasawa's on the bay but I was stoked to see one with F+R brakes:

PERFECT for a killer townie style whip- HOLY FUCK ESP IF YOU GOT THESE FOR IT!!:

Granted it would be a bit much but still. Fucking things are SCHWEET!

The dude who's selling those hubs has a bunch of other cool, albeit grossly overpriced, stuff..

Major game changer.. the form of Magic Flight's LAUNCH BOX:

I bought this set up recently and let me tell you- AMAZING! Way less gross than smoking the traditional way. Which for someone like myself who despises smoking, makes things much nicer..

I'd wanted to get a vaporizer for a while now but couldn't rationalize spending a bunch of money on a piece of drug paraphernalia. However at $119 this one gets you the most bang for the buck- and buck it does! It's super small, desecrate and easy to use. Toss it in your pocket and you're gtg!

LOOK! how RAD these frames are:

I would TOTALLY ride one of those around in the street with risers and HED3 wheels and not give the slightest fuck about what anyone said..

Off to a good start!

While not being at all perfect, I'm still pretty stoked on FINALLY completing my Yamaguchi School frame:

It took a while since I was away for the summer and only recently got my crazy messy shop in order. It was just too constraining for me to get any work done in there. Esp after working in Koichi's shop which he keeps tight as fuck.

 I went into the course thinking whatever I build, it's going to be about learning as much as I can. As opposed to coming out with a beautiful new frame. I probably spent as much time working on it as I did BSing with Koichi about nerdy bike shit. The frame is a mix of techniques so I consider it to be somewhat of a sketch. As you can see, the front end is fillet brazed. The ST and BB are lugged and there's some nice Yamaguchi style track drops in rear. The rear seat stay section is pretty interesting but I'll save that for the build pics..

Speaking of the build, this thing is going to be as funky as one of my freak bikes. I have a rack I already built before I even went to the class and a super hilarious adapted wheel for the front. I mean, we're talking total jackassness here. Then again, what did you expect right? Don't worry tho, classy builds will come soon enough. Since this one has sketch status written all over it, I thought I'd have a bit of fun. I mean, I'm just going to use it as a sort of around town cruising and lock up bike after all :)

The only problem I'm facing right now is what color to paint it. I was originally going to go all black as per usual but in the spirit of change, I'm trying to come up with some new color combos. If you have any thoughts feel free to comment!

Cycling Porn Recap 2009-2010: NSFW/Wallet!

CPR is what you're going to need if you can even get through half this post without falling to the floor! I was recently inspired by this old post of mine which was loaded down with TONS of sexy bike porn, ladies on bikes and hilariousness from 07'-08'. So once I again, I decided to go through a couple years worth of posts to bring you yet another fantabulously ferocious fury of flagrantly fastidious fucking bike porn. With no back links or explanations or anything of course. Enjoy:

Welp there you have it. More porn coming soon!
