If you're dumb like me you sell your BMX right when the nice weather kicks in.
So I put this together to muck around on to tide me over till I get a new one.
The 650X700c set up is original for this bike, but somehow the fork I have lets me bar spin.
I just got blogged about by southsea fixed gear fight club, they sound tuff so I better return the favour
Um... Yeah... Wow!
FOR SALE *edit*
If your a skullbikeclub associate some way some how you can have it for $600.. Deal!!
Its sad to see this bike go but unfortunately I need a new bathroom and don't have the room for all my bikes so I have decided to sell my S&M .38 Special 24", I'm hoping to get about $700 for it.. its an amazing bike and has a bunch of amazing parts on it.

Two Latunas - before shots
I finally found a Laguna, but somehow ended up with two. These things look even radder in the flesh. This one is an '82 and is going to have gold and black parts.
This one was built in 1979. It's going to be candyapple red with blue parts.
Vintage Solid Steel: Double Dee & Steinski
This week's podcast from Solid Steel continues the series of revisiting the classics from their vault. Those of you into the Hipsk Hopsk should have heard of The Lessons (parts 1, 2 & 3) which influenced a whole generation of DJ's.
Check it out here.
In an ode to these releases both DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist have released their own Lessons. In 2002 Shadow and Chemist teamed up with DDS for a live performance of The Lesson which you can watch on youtube here: Pt One & Pt Two
And since i couldnt embed the vids i thought i would put up this one.
Rouleur Photography Show
I order my Masi Coltello today.. not to sure how I'm going to build it up, or when when for that matter but its to rad to refuse ordering it. Its coming from the USA sometime in December, ill keep you poseted
In other news Chris from Onehunga has finally got his $10k frame building jig.. hes already started working on his boutique hand built frame company Caldera. I'm looking forward to seeing what he produces.
I really want one of these
but they look about as hard to get a hold of as one of these
by the way I sold my pursuit frame but it went to a good home, the guy who bought it makes rad courier bags and is currently selling THIS!
The Good the Bad and the drunk
Ive been working in the tokyo fixed gear shop building some wheels and looking after stuff

I got drunk at tricky dicks and went OTB
slamed so hard I busted my belt buckle and blew my inner tube in half
fuck it dude lets go bowling
Skulls N Shit
Check out the other 2 parts here, just dont get caught in the porn hole.
Rat Racer Ride
Last couple of weeks Ive been helping out at stratons work AV2hire. Riding the 8 freight bikes around London. The boss david is a rad dude with some sweet ideas, check out this bass cannon he tows on a trailer.
He was telling me about how the 8 freight is designed by Mike Burrows the guy responsible for this oarsome bike
He also designed this rad recumbent called the ratracer!
It was really nice to ride and has loads of really interesting design features
Heres Straton discussing the advantages of monoblade forks and the importance of colour coordination
He also recommends taking your wallet out of your front pocket before you ride.
Anyway heres a vid about Burrow's laid back bikes
Mike Burrows shows his bikes off from recumbent rider on Vimeo.

I just went for a little spin, hop and pop for lunch, it reminded me of how much i dig riding on 20" wheels. Go ride... and say whats up to T-White this Saturday. Sorry SBC London cant be there.

I was going to write about vigilante justice after a lovely experience riding home involving some very angry man in a Merc'. I was looking for some images of bikes being thrown through car windows when i found these two little pics.
I feel much better now but im still wondering what are the best weapons a rider could carry...?
