Geekhouse Movie from Geekhouse Bikes on Vimeo.

Geekhouse makes awesome custom bikes. I have wanted one for a few years now. Having just watched this video of what goes into making a Geekhouse bike, I even want one even more right now. Check out the video, leave your thoughts in the comments.

Some great work by Kike Besanda. Really cool to see bikes used like that.

Pretty cool idea for tracking bike movements through the city using chalk I wonder if a prototype will ever be built.

‘Contrail’ is a design concept that enables cyclists to increase their visibility to cars, pedestrians, and each other. Conceived by Pepin Gelardi and Teresa Herrmann, this frame-mounted device would allow cyclists to make their mark on the street with faint lines of chalk. The rear wheel spins a smooth trail of color onto the pavement as the bike whizzes along.

Contrail leaves an impression based on the cumulative movements of many
cyclists over time (a more lasting variation on the BYO bike lane concept employed by the laser-projected LightLane). Its provocative visual language lies somewhere between sky
calligraphy, temporary street graffiti, and overlapping footprints in
the snow.

Gelardi and Herrmann proposed Contrail for the Power to the Pedal competition, and are currently developing a prototype. They envision ‘a new cycle of biking participation’ in which the criss-crossing chalk ribbons would pique curiosity, identify more popular routes, and inspire more cyclists to hit the road.

Great little promotional video for Hutchinson Tires that I first saw at the bicycle film fest.

From the director:

Directed by Daniel Leeb of Cinecycle Productions.
This short film features Alfred Bobe Jr. and Fatimah Durkee. The film spins a visual ballad between the two cyclists experiencing the city in their own unique ways. Both cyclists are city dwellers who amidst the chaos of the concrete jungle have created a private and peaceful psychological space as they traverse the streets. They are both alone and yet they are both very much aware of each others presence. The film speaks to the harmony with one’s environment that can be found while riding a bicycle in a city and the synchronistic connection we can have with those we have not even met. The short was commissioned by Hutchinson tires

J Martinez takes some of my favorite photo’s. He really is a truly gifted photographer. Here he puts together a bunch of those awesome shots taken with his 40D with a nice short 24mm lens. Music is Kanye West.
