Throw it on the Barbie.

Posted by: kris

This past weekend was a bit out of the norm but still a fun one. After Friday nights bike party my dude and fellow messenger Brian here realized his pooch had made an escape. After searching ’til 4 in the morning and most of the next day we finally tracked (aka Craigslisted) the beast down. It only made sense to grill up some food and play with some fire to blow off a bit of steam…

Copenhagen Bike Messengers: Freedom and Friendship.

Posted by: kris

Really cool flick following a couple messenger dudes from Copenhagen with some words on why they do what they do. Dig stuff like this and these dudes sound like they’re in it for the right reasons.

FWDSET: Forever Forward.

Posted by: kris

Dope flick coming from the Kirk Tsonos and the FWDSET. Day in the life features like this are some of my favorites for their personal connection if nothing else. Follow Kirk through a day on Jacksonville back before he landed in sunny California.

2014 NACCC Minneapolis.

Posted by: kris

This promo for the 2014 NACCC is too damn good. Minneapolis is the set for this year’s events and you can bet it’s going to be good. I’ve long wanted to go watch or participate in this especially since starting work on a bike a few years back…maybe I’ll go check some plane ticket… More info on the official site!

MTL 10-9 – Tales From The Road.

Posted by: kris

This should make for one hell of a video series from Bern and Velo iBike. When you spend a lot of time in the saddle (or most for messengers) you tend to have a good collection stories about close calls and taking falls. The first video in the series focuses on just that with cool narrative of such encounters and a solid collection of riding footage. This is just the trailer to promote the first premiere June 5th in Montreal but you can bet these will hit the web here very soon…can’t wait. Click through for the official words on the project…


(FYI I posted a shorter version of this last week…not a double post!)

TCB Courier is Hiring.

Posted by: kris

Was talking with Jake Ricker a bit today about TCB and it seems they’re busy than ever right now. If you think you’ve got what it takes (and it takes a hell of a lot) then shoot over an email. It’s not all track bikes and fixie skids but speaking from experience it sure can be a rewarding as hell!

#messlife: Where’s The Drought?!

Posted by: kris

If you live in California you’re probably tired of hearing about how we’re in a drought. If you ride bikes in California you’re probably wondering what the hell everyone is talking about. Regardless of water levels the past week has been pretty soggy yet again. Didn’t stop some weekend exploring with my my dude (and dispatcher) Charles and definitely didn’t mean work was called off. Click through for some randos from the past week…
