In Your Face Race - 11/1/08

A Bad Heather and Victor race to help Dagga pay for a new set of front teeth. Dagga had an accident while riding in Bed-Stuy (no details) and needs help paying for a new set of fronts.

Be there!

Hutchinson Tires Vid

Somehow I totally spaced on watching this when it came across Tracko a few days ago. A dope video! Alfred is wearing 'The Climber' (I knew nothing about this till the other day) and is seen leaving Affinity Cycles at the beginning. Awesome!

Bike Kill this Saturday

Fuck yes! This is my favorite long time bike event in the goddamn forever! Last year was amazing and topped off by a CHVNK flaming bike of death and the arresting of Paul. I'm not even thinking about how that can be topped, only how I'm going to keep the case of beer in my backpack cold.

Obama Bike by Geek House

Got an email from Marty Walsh @
GeekHouse earlier today about his collaborative project with Animal NY and Dan Funderburgh to raise monies for the Obama campaign. Marty et al, have built a bike themed around the Obama color scheme (say colorways and I'll get slappy with you) using the new sublimated powder coat thechnique that Marty showcased on the Bandana bike earlier in the year. Its pretty cool and I'm wondering all over the place if there is a way that I can use this new technology in conjunction with ELVS. The bike is on eBay now.

Obama Bike
The exclusive, fixed gear masterpiece was hand-built and features original sublimated graphics on the frame and Velocity Deep V wheelset, including a remixed Obama chainring logo on the front. The velodrome-ready bike sports a 55cm Geekhouse Custom 'Rockcity' Frame track frame with 'Yo Marty' fork, a curved seat tube, and comes fully loaded with the following parts:
  • Thomson Stem and Post
  • SDG Saddle
  • Tioga Headset
  • Sugino Messenger Cranks/Ring
  • MKS Sylvan Track Pedals/Clips
  • Continental Tires

New Anti-Dooring Stickers

The anti-dooring campaign set up in Chicago following the tragic death of Clinton Miceli is getting ready to print some more anti-dooring stickers, but they need your help. The stickers cost a bit to print, so the campaign is asking people to chip in to help pay for the print run. To donate, go HERE and to read about the anti-dooring campaign go HERE. Thanks!

What am I working on?

Indeed, what is being worked on at Laek House?

- Winter hats: This is being worked out right now. I've sourced some neat wool/softshell materials for the front pieces of the hats. Its a breathable, warm and windproof while not being to thick.

There will be two versions, one with ear-flaps and one without. Both will have the softshell front.

- Hip Pouches: I've been working on one for a little while now and am on the second iteration. What I can tell you now, the bags will have an integrated U-lock holster (built around a Krpto Mini) a reflective element, a tab for a blinkie and a way to carry a pump externally. It will probably have two pockets as well but I'm working this out as I go.

For now, it will built out of vinyl coated truck tarp. Ideally, I'd like to dump all PVC products though and am open to suggestions.
