For those who have missed out on these tees in the past, I have started taking orders for Drop Bars Not Bombs tees, tanks and crewneck sweatshirts at ZLOG Boutique. The first 20 orders will receive a Drop Bars Not Bombs pin as well as a ZLOG stash bag. The tentative ship date on these is November 1st, but the more people that pre-order early, the faster the production process will be. Don’t sleep on these!

At first glance the Solid Gray backpacks look like some jetpack from a science fiction movie. Unfortunately, they can’t make you fly, but what they lack in jet-propulsion, they make up for in style & ingenuity. Solid Gray packs are made from a single sheet of highly durable polypropene, which has never before been used for consumer products. This high tech material gives the bag a unique geometric shaped hardshell that protects it’s contents. Inside you will find two compartments; one large one with elastic bands for a laptop or tablet and another smaller compartment for all of the little stuff. These bags are proudly made in the Netherlands and retail for about €139 (roughly $180). You can purchase one at Solid-Gray.com
Prolly is Not Probably has been leading the charge in the bike blog world for some time and when he puts out rad products like this Necronomicog pack people jump quick. Head over to his site and swoop on this deal because for $55 you get a hand-numbered, two color 12″ x 18″ poster, printed on archival paper, a 2″ x 4″ iron on patch, a 1″ button and tee shirt, all designed by Lamour Supreme. That’s a deal!

Over the last 10 months I have been extremely busy transitioning into a new workspace in the heart of the Belltown district of Seattle. Not only have I transferred into a new space, but we’ve teamed up with IMPRNT to produce our line of tees and hats in-house for a more hands-on production process.
The Illuminati tee is back in action with metallic gold ink.
The X-Up Redux tank is a slightly altered version of the X-up design. Printed with metallic bronze ink.
We now have the ability to screen print onto blank hats. The Illuminati snapback is something I’ve been wanting to do on a hat, but with embroidery, the design wouldn’t have worked.

Tarmo Luisk created this typography inspired bike rack system to convey a message about a place or company while adding a useful feature to the environment. I wouldn’t mind seeing some of these around town.
This is a great idea! best looking fender i’ve seen for sure. pick one up at Chari & Co.
Here is a handy little piece of paper that might serve very useful if you ever get into a collision with a car. Often enough cyclists will be disoriented when they get into an accident and fail to obtain crucial information about the driver that may help them legally. Boston based lawyer Josh Zisson saw this as a problem and took action by teaming up with graphic designer Tim Jaques to create the handy Bicycle Accident Report Card. It clearly shows the bike laws on one side, and has information for the driver to fill out on the other. This could spark a new revolution in bicycle advocacy and promote safer cohabitation between cars and bikes in our streets.

Don’t you love how social media has worked its way into modern day advertising?
Caught this (and the rest of the campaign) at Creative Review.
Quick thanks to all of the supporters and friends out there. I am really stoked to see what 2012 brings. Get ready for some shit and welcome to the bropocalypse!
This particular case is for the iPhone 3 (also available for iphone 4), and has saved my phone from harm on a few different occasions. The rubber sides offer up a nice ergonomic shape and the carbon backing helps the phone slide into the pocket. One thing I normally dislike about all-rubber iPhone cases is they tend to be a pain to get in and out of my pants pockets. Overall, I am happy with the case for its aesthetics as well as functionality, but I need to get the 4G version since I upgraded my phone. There are a wide range of cases to choose from in the $20-$50 range.
