Bicicleta Sem Freio

|


Bicicleta Sem Freio(Bicycle Without Brake?") are:Douglas de Castro,Victor Rocha andRenato Reno

well, i can't really read portuguese, but from what i translated from translate.google.com they described, "The principal illustrators of the bike without brakes is the universe of rock and roll, music, performance, visuals and "very fetish and beautiful women." The designs are handmade, with the pencil, pen and ink light table as big companions of the creation process. It is not hard to find songs that were drawn in full, including the printing of texts. Thus, often the computer is used to make work playable.

Together as bike without brake since 2005, preferring to wait for customers to seek the personal language of his works instead of panning the market. So, draw as they like and which meet the project needs.

Style "hair in the wind, we will see in what way!" from down the hill on a bike without brake, do not create expectations for the future. They want to do what they like and what can be proud. That have many slopes ahead!"

check more of their works on their Flickr

Aero Bars

|



images from Braised Pork Foot's Blog

The wait for my new pursuit frame got me browsing for some aero-pursuit bars. The "aeRAD-bar" above is (from what i've seen somewhere) the super rare Nitto Tsubasa.

afterward, i've found this beauty on Hugger industry's Flickr



"Before time trial bars, custom builders would make you a TT bike like this. They were called "funny bikes" and had discs in the back with little wheels in the front. "


hhhhh..but then again,i'm just gonna go for the fairly available Nitto Rb 0021 pursuit bar

from fixedgearbikes.blogspot.

the author said, "The story behind this is that the crank was tightened way too tight at the assembly plant from which Specialized gets it's Langsters. I stripped threads with a long wrench extension and then proceeded with a hacksaw.
The BB spindle is in excellent condition. Not a single scratch from the saw blade!"

im going to take care of mine better from now on

Hub Review : ICE

|
hi! i've been riding for a few months and currently using a hub with ICE brand.
it's actually a 28h custom drilled to 36h, dunno whose the manufacturer.
what i know that it uses loose bearing, have one side for freewheel, and the other side is actually for a disc brake.

video

My current setup is 53t - 20t, it actually takes a toll on the hub. needs to be checked each month for cone adjustment . but over all, it is quite a good hub for daily use.

As you can see in the video, it doesn't roll like it used to.. hehe. :)
some people i know are using them for trick, and find no meaningful problem.
with the price range of 70k - 150k (depends on who you bought it from), i say it's a good hub.


So if you're just starting to ride fixed gear, from indonesia and reading this post, i recommend this hub.

Hellaflush thing...

from here

i've been seeing some guys from local car scene doing this kinds of builds around my town; loathsome rims, low, and interestingly, a bicycle rack!
the sightings has got me thinking into doing the same thing to my 2004 Volkswagon Golf(currently retired, what's with the fixie around :D) because i want to ride my bike elsewhere that is far, far away...


maybe, just maybe

Mosers(found variously on the web)

|





again with my pursuit fetish... beautiful.
and im wondering if "moser" has something to do with the classic road cyclist Francesco Moser..

THE END

|


noo, it's not about THE end of the world, and definitely not the end of me..
before im continuing with my writing, i want you so-called "Hipster" to braced yourself...



ready?


im not sure you're ready.. but i've read this article about "walmart fixie" @wired.com, the article is about a "fixie" that is (obviously, you'd already figured it out) produced by Mongoose(all you old-school BMX rider, ring a bell?) and is on sale on walmart... well, "sale" might be the right word, taken from the same site; "The frame is aluminum, which should make this bike lighter than many home-grown steel fixed-gears (although the shipping weight is a back-breaking 40-pounds. That must be a heavy cardboard box). It has two “calipur” brakes, and “high-profile colored rims” which “add urban style.”" and it's selling on $150

so what does this have to do with THE END?

a fixie, a hipster accessory, sold on walmart, for cheap--- imagine the uncoolness

Joker's Daughter- Lucid from Hayley Morris on Vimeo.

"A music video I directed and animated for Joker's Daughter. A collaboration between Helena Costas and Danger Mouse.

This video was completely handmade using painted paper puppets, painted backgrounds and actual objects which I animated frame by frame on a 6 level multi-plane." He said

Cadence Track Stand Variation

|
as you (might) already noticed, i hang out with Fixed Gear Congkak crew.. and if you watch my older post(their video), you'll see that most of them are trickster.
Me, im riding fixie just for commuting, speed is necessary as i ride kilo-metres away every day from home to campus and work.
the problem is, whenever i hang out with the Congkaks, all i can do is nothing but trackstand.
and so i caught myself browsing Youtube and found this..

3 Rensho Pursuit frame

|
i always have something for a pursuit bike!
a friend of mine from Fixie Congkak ride on a black pursuit tomashini and it got me browsing all day long on google, keywords: pursuit frames
i also have a certain fascination on 3Rensho frame's crazed geometry. too bad they don't produce no more..

now look what i found on the web..

Ms. Victoria Pandleton

|
in my opinion, Victoria Pandelton is the hottest olympians i've ever seen.

quoted from the Cycling Info, UK; "her French Canadian coach as being unsuited for cycling; on meeting her, he said “You’re too skinny, too puny to be a sprint cyclist.”, Victoria Pendleton has gone onto win 3 world Championships, and is currently one of the world’s leading female track cyclists."

Touching everything

|
and so i'm back to square one, the last blog i made was..well, something that somewhat random; too random in fact that i decided to delete it.

found myself stuck with new interest interest at the moment; riding track bikes on the street. Yep, you heard it right, i caught what these people these days call a "fixie fever".
though i live in a town(well, it's a city, but i decided to call it town since there's only one tall building that i know of here) where the traffics sucks: people don't drive in straight lines; public transport being famous for being a bastard; they sale motorcycles too cheap here you can see a swarm of them and; i think they want to make this town an offroad destinations, leaving potholes(big ones) alone and do nothing to them. still, Me and some other guys dare this dump and still we ride.


well, i was planning to make this blog a stict-fixie-only content, but i got love for my older hobbies such as The Blues, The Arts, The Trips, and all sort of randomness i see, saw, and sought. beside, there are so many interesting stuff in the world i'll die in curiousity if i didn't touch everything.

Enjoy
