Bike Lane Blues of the Day: Do You Play by the Rules? | Video

by Accidental Bear

Do you stay in the bike lane although they may be full of mayhem and pot holes?

Bike Lane Blues of the Day: As we’ve seen, NYC cyclists don’t always respect the rules of the road. But, as New Yorker Casey Neistat makes painfully clear in this PSA, it’s hard to respect the rules when the rules don’t respect you. (via thedailywh.at)

Home: Gabriel Hargrove Saddle Stool

by Accidental Bear

Can I borrow $700 ?

“Town Stool is a modern piece of furniture inspired by well worn bicycle saddles, realized here in wood. The saddle and legs of this stool are made from ash, the legs are ebonized and the seat is stained in dark pecan. The saddle is sprung, like the leather saddles of many town bikes.” www.etsy.com

All 12 reasons sound peachy on paper. Here in SF and most cities, getting on a bike you are taking a risk at getting mowed over by some idiot talking on her cell phone in  Lexus (yes, I am a little prejudice to rich folks and women drivers). I for one haven’t been on a bike in SF since my bike was stolen right out from under me while it was being watched by a Russian security guard at 24 Hr Fitness  at Market/ Church. Suspicious for sure.

We’re continuing our look at smart ways to start saddling up and using bicycles for real transportation.
We’ve always taken the greenness of bike transport as a given. But if you’re just getting started — or perhaps trying to convince an employer that bicycle commuting is a good thing — we’ve rounded up a dozen reasons to leave that car in the driveway and start covering pavement on two wheels. Let’s ride!

Levi’s Saddle for UNIK Bike, Fixerati & Brother Cycles

by Accidental Bear

RAD!

I never thought a bike seat could be sexy. In my over active porn fantasy mind I visualize denim on denim. This is one seat I’d ride bareback! WAIT!?!? WHAT!?

Levi’s Saddle for UNIK Bike, Fixerati & Brother Cycles

Levi’s works over their denim into the form of a saddle for this (one-off?) with UNIK Bike, Fixerati & Brother Cycles. “as produced in collaboration with the Belgian UNIK Bikes , who assembled the frame created by Brother Cycles and components Fixerati.” We like the saddle. Your denim will bleed onto your saddle anyways – so why not make it match. Then again, that stitching may not be comfortable for long. (f)
