After the whirl of Bespoked Bristol – what a great weekend that was – we’ve finally got round to adding some beautiful new bicycle art prints to the webshop. There are three from long-time Boneshaker collaborator Adams Carvalho, and three from our new-found friends at the Indian Bicycle Shop. Feast your eyes above and below, and direct your digits thissaway to make a purchase, should you be so inclined…
We’re stoked to have been included in this big ass book of beautiful bicycles, available from all good book shops soon and from the Gestalten webshop now. As if there wasn’t enough bike porn in your life already…
Here’s the official blurb:
“Choosing to ride a particular bike conveys an attitude and a way of life. Velo—2nd Gear illuminates and celebrates contemporary bicycle culture’s diverse scenes. From classic racing bikes to high-tech speed machines, from rough fixies to fashionable city cruisers and hardworking cargo bikes, this book showcases today’s most outstanding and unusual bicycles and their riders.
Velo—2nd Gear not only introduces coveted manufacturers, specialized boutiques, and historical tours. It also explains how each bike-related scene cultivates its own distinct codes through the choice of certain frames, jerseys, caps, or bags or by visiting specific events or key establishments. In doing so, the book shows why, for more and more people, bicycles have now replaced cars as the vehicles that best express their identity.”
There’s a special Pinterest page set up for it here.
We have updated our online shop a bunch of new products, namely this year’s Artcrank contribution from our Creative Director, John Coe. Inspired by his dad having been a keen rider for 50 year, it seemed a great opportunity to celebrate it and create a striking A2 screenprint at the same time. Also now up on the shop are two prints by the brilliant (and regular Boneshaker contributor) Eliza Southwood – we are chuffed to have two great illustrated A3 prints of racing legend Marshall ‘Major’ Taylor (as featured in Issue 10). Check ‘em out here here.
Good friend of the magazine, Jonathan Lewis, has just launched the World’s First Fair Trade & Eco-friendly Cyclewear Company – VELECO. Here is a little more information from Jonathan about his exciting new venture:
“The Urban-Eco 2012 Collection for men and women includes our Re:Cycle Jacket made from 12 recycled plastic bottles and organic cotton cycling t-shirts, hoodies, cycle caps and musette cycling bags. Our aim is to offer cyclists an ethical cyclewear alternative for guilt free riding. All our garments are made using Fair Trade, ethical and eco-friendly principles, which is why we think we are one of the most ethical cyclewear companies in the world.”
