Take a spin through Chicago streets with local messenger Nico as he preps to out spin a cabbie. Never had the chance to roll around Chi Town but this sure makes it look like a solid downtown to weave through. Even with some unnecessarily wild cuts through traffic the cab takes the cake. Pretty good one from Red Bull!
I’ve never seen photos from this track before but I just spotted some sick velodrome shots over on MRyan092’s flickr. Some behind the pace bike shots and some other good angles from what looks to be practice at Chicago Velo Campus. Worth a look if you’re into true track racing.
I’m a sucker for messenger flicks. Maybe that’s because I spend 40 hours a week doing the same thing. Either way this is a cool ride around Chicago and I dig it. Plus it actually is Tuesday so this is fitting. Boom.
There’s definitely a part of me that will always be into artsy bike shots. For those of us that literally live to ride bikes its always nice to see a photo that can capture the mood just that. Maxwell Arnold got that pretty spot on with this close up of his ride and the Chicago skyline in the background. This could easily be framed and tossed on someones wall.
Just got the newest Clit Clips up this morning and here’s the b sides from that joint. Fails and bail from a lot of sick dudes and more good tunes! Always into some b sides stuff as it shows you everything else that goes down while you’re out on the streets. Dig it.
This is hands down my favorite edit from Midwest Mayhem trips everyone made. Got clips in it from just about everyone at a plethora of sick street spots. Toss in some good tunes and some shenanigans and you have straight gold! Soooo dig this one.
Here’s another piece of this Chrome x Cog takeover right here. This is going to be a sick show no doubt. If you can get there you should definitely be there! So much cool Chrome and Cog stuff this week.
Corinne just shot me the press release for the opening of the new Chrome Chicago store. There’s been a bit of buzz about it lately and now its official! Check the official press release below…and peep Chrome of course!
San Francisco, Calif. (May 11, 2011) – Chrome, the world’s leading manufacturer of bike
