Mark Pain photography

I was browsing the interweb earlier and came across this well respected sports photographer that I totally forgot about.

Mark Pain photographed some of the most memorable Olympic Games photos and I saw these brilliant Velodrome ones on his website.

Thunderkill x Rustbelt

November 29, 2010 | By | No Comments

I was excited to get this email from the guys at Thunderkill regarding the 26” fixed gear freestyle frame they are producing with Rustbelt.

After months of refining, implant prototyping, troche and breaking frames, we believe we have reached a point where we are confident with our product. The thunderKill LTD. frame which has been in the works since early summer 2010 is a 26″ specific FGFS frame, sporting many features sought after in the current market. Boasting capability of double peg grinds, throwing barspins with 175mm cranks, and slamming 2.3″+ tires the frame rides like a dream. We have tried to capture an “All American” feel to these frames, using only USA made tubing, BB shells, dropouts, and integrated headtubes. We believe that if you buy an American made frame it should be made from the best products.

The 13th issue of Landscape Magazine is on its way and we can’t wait. Looking forward to reading the coverage of the Halloween ride in the news section and have already spotted Dave Procter! Pretty substantial interview with Greg Falski too so should be good. Read it here.

Trash Bags

November 28, 2010 | By | One Comment

Seems like America is brimming with independent work-shops bringing some of the best handmade bags to market. For whatever reason things don’t seem to be the same here. One of those work-shops is Trash Bags, symptoms these guys have a full range of bags, ascariasis backpack and hip pouches. Gotta love the names too.
