Sneak Preview – Genre de Vie

Looks promising!

Genre de Vie is a documentary film about bicycles, cities and personal awareness. It looks at desired space and our own impact to the process of it. The film documents urban life empowered by the simplicity of the bicycle.

Today we are facing environmental issues more than ever. While architects, urban designers, policymakers and thinkers discuss the future of our cities, more and more people become aware of their own impact and use of space. Genre de Vie uses the bicycle to explore personal awareness and finds out how cycling contributes to the future livability of cities.

Typo Bike Rack

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.

Bicycle Accident Report Card

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.

Sizemore Bicycles – Matt’s Track Bike

This is one is quite a beauty and I wouldn’t expect anything less from Mr. Sizemore. I also want to note that it is rolling on the new H+Son TB14 box section rims (available end of Feb), which compliment the build quite nicely.

Check out more sexy rigs over at Sizemore Bicycle.

American with Japanese influences. During my time with this bike, one theme was prevalent, a quiet yet detailed japanese aesthetic.
