PAUL SMITH x MERCIAN CYCLES — MR PORTER — THE EXCLUSIVE from MR PORTER on Vimeo.

What a great little short about a collaboration between fashion designer, Paul Smith, and the frame builders of Mercian Cycles. Go into 3:20 for some rad shots of Smith dressed to the 9′s pulling track stands on his murdered out custom frame. This guy is legit!

Alligators and Cornflakes

There are too many amazing one-liners in this 3:40 video to pick a favorite. I just…just…there are no words. This guy has taken them all.

Roland of R.E.Load Bags gives the details on their messenger-sized bag, the Megapack, the largest bag in their offering. Admittedly, I’m a little bummed circus clowns didn’t come pouring out upon opening.

These Strider Championship events never cease to pull me out of a bad mood. Wee people kicking around on wee bikes in a competition setting. Love it.

Strongest Hearts Campaign

Matt Ruscigno, of Feel My Legs and Day In The Life, and his cohort, Sasha Perry, are in the middle of a fundraising campaign to help create more of their Day In The Life episodes/interviews of vegan athletes. They have showcased a number of cyclists in the series, who have offered great insight into high-level racing and nutrition.

The videos are professionally produced and cost a decent penny to make, hence the campaign. You can donate here and the incentives are pretty nice, including buttons, Purist water bottles, stickers, socks, nutritional consultation, an athlete of your choice in a video (YOU in a video!), etc. Only 14 days left to make this happen…help ‘em out!
