ten years ago...



Re-post so ya'll don't forget...

Just realized this was ten years ago, goddamn where does the time go?
What crazy week that was, you felt power in the streets by the people you where with and the actions you took...
Then afterwards you felt afraid, and powerless by the city you love by the actions the city took...

Big ups Seattle don't ever forget this, I miss you.

Nike AF1 x Livestrong x UNDFTD


Eddie Cruz and UNDFTD have held a strong position in sneaker, style, and sport culture on the West Coast. Having worked with Nike in the past, Cruz and Nike Sportswear have partnered together to rework the iconic Air Force 1.

The sentiment and meaning of this AF1 runs deeper for Eddie Cruz, whom recently suffered a serious personal illness. Creating this shoe with the intention of raising awareness for a good cause was extra motivation and the outcome goes beyond the world of sneakers and sport. “I support LIVESTRONG and Lance Armstrong. He was one of the first people to send me a message of support when I got my brain tumor," said Cruz. "Lance told me to stay strong."


Drops Next week!! So get to UNDFTD and get you pair!

Is Hope Fading Fast?



Freshjive pre-released this shirt on black Friday along with a few examples of how Obama has "maintained continuity with [his] disgraced predecessor" on their World's Got Problems blog. Mediaite sez it was significant because it came from the left. StreetLevel.com sez Freshjive's message is that the government is "not leaning as far left as their campaign has continuously promised to the country."


What do you think?

New Leader Trick Frame..



Leader is proud to announce the release of the version 1.5 729TRK frame. The newer frame is refined with a new head tube gusset design, much wider stays to fit a larger tire in the rear, redesigned dropouts that are 10mm longer, revised and improved chain tensioners that are much easier to adjust and works fantastic with the axel instead of the bolts. Also, a new paint finish which will be a flat black powdercoat is being introduced...

Bluesix Ti Bolts!!




"I am running a set on my track bike and have been running the same bolts (3/8-16") on my bmx bike for eight months. The large head (22mm) fits perfect with the insurance tabs on forks and gives plenty of surface area to grab your frame ends tight. The broach is 6mm for convenience (hence the 6 in Bluesix) and helps reduce the amount of tools needed to work on your bike. Speaking of this, we are also working on similar bolts that fit most square taper cranks. They will be the same material and also feature a 6mm broach. With these bolts in your wheels and cranks you can remove that 8mm from your carry bag and work on your bike with less tools.

As with all Bluesix Bikes these will be under the same warranty offered on all of their components."

Profile Cone, FAIL! O_o


- I've heard of the cones breaking on the Profile fixed hubs, but these are the most detailed photos I've seen of the occurrence. It seems Profile has come up with a solution to this problem by offering a 3/8 axle conversion kit (found here) priced at $55 per axle; not including titanium bolts (+ $33 per pair). That is quite a bit of dough to throw down! According to my source, this hub was only 2 months old when it failed.

Giving cars the weekend off in Los Angeles?????



"Imagine Los Angeles without cars. A town where people ride their bikes and walk in the streets and the smells of tacos and veggie burgers drift through the air instead of exhaust...

Sound like a pipe dream? Not if a group called cicLAvia is successful. A volunteer coalition of bicycle advocates, transportation experts, artists and academics, cicLAvia wants to make Sundays in Los Angeles virtually car-free -- transforming the city's streets into giant bike lanes and creating a public space that connects every neighborhood in the city.....
