The shellacked cork bar tape looks really good.

This embossed topography poster by VanGist is so incredible. I never knew that multi-level embossing could be so expensive. If you are as interested as I am about the process that went into these posters, then take a peek at FPO.

Marwin got himself a new prototype from SE. It is the only one for now, but if the demand is there I’m sure SE will put this frame into production.
Here’s what SE had to say about it:
It was only a matter of time ‘till we put pen to paper & drafted up the first ever Quad Fixed frame. What you see here is #1 of one. Strictly prototype & still in the development stage. This frame was handed off to Marwin “The Wizard” Ou last night. Marwin will be riding & testing it on the streets & skateparks of the LBC in the coming months.
We have not yet decided if we will bring the Quad Fixed frame into SE’s 2012 line of bikes. So for now, just consider it our little pet project. If you like what you see, keep an eye out on the SE website and SE’s Facebook page for the frame’s progress.

Here we have a German commercial for the safest lock in the world and it isn’t your average anti-theft device.
Also, watch the making-of.
Thanks to our reader Manuel from Germany for sending this along.

As I am in the market for a new work space, I’ve been checking out other creative spaces for inspiration. The office of I Love Dust is exceptionally amazing, with bikes of every kind hanging from the walls accompanied by art and all things nice. I am in love.

but I dig it.
Heres a pretty cool invention that a group of students from MIT came up with for the James Dyson Award. Read more about it below.
Christine Outram and a team of MIT students invented of a wheel that turns a regular bike into a smart, electric hybrid. The Copenhagen Wheel allows riders to capture the energy dissipated when breaking and cycling and use it when they need it, like when they’re biking up a hill.
The mechanism is controlled through a rider’s smart phone, strapped onto the handlebars. The phone’s GPS system also enables riders to track road conditions, congestion, and pollution levels.

And check out the stickers on the tri-spoke! I wish I could find a higher-resolution of this.
The decal designs by Seb Lester are simply wonderful. I love seeing people’s creative process through thumbnail sketches. It really gets my pumped to design.
check out her amazing work creating an identity for Delorenzo Bicycle shop. Now that’s some great print and packaging design!
Christauf has been doing illustration and design for our friends at Go Means Go. His stuff is always on point. Being from a design and illustration background myself, I realize how tough the job market is right now. Check out Christauf’s portfolio and if you need some killer drawings, give him a shout.
