A glimpse of what is to come for iPhone owners

Yeah, you wait. The number of people being assaulted for their iPhones in urban environments is going to be exponential for the months following it's long-awaited release. Watch this guy try to steal the reporter's mic in an attempt to grab the iPhone from the interviewee's hand.

In my spare time, I've been working with a developer on a series of modular homes.

Each home has a series of configurations and "add-ons" that are constructed in pre-fab factories using fairly modern fixtures and detailing.

The renderings will be a part of a investment package and will be up on their website soon enough.

For now, I'll leave the client anonymous until the renderings have been signed off on.

Pretty simple and clean modernism...

Labor Race September 1st

So far, this is all the information on this race. Looks like it'll be fun. First place gets a set of Phil Wood hubs and there will be a prize for first non-messenger as well... The sponsors will hook it up as usually and hopefully someone will organize a cookout afterwards.

HEY RIDERS #69 Originally uploaded by John Prolly
Pics are up from Saturday's HEY RIDERS! race in Baltimore. Shop Gentei threw their first alley cat and had a pretty big turnout. The race took the riders to all ends of Baltimore and covered most the famous and infamous spots in between. NYC showed up and kids from SF flew out for this race. Jameson, Alek and I took 18th - 20th outta about 80 riders or so. I Google Pedometer'd our course for the race HERE

Asise from Jameson's NASTY wreck - it was a great time. Can't wait for Broadway Bombing. This weekend, we're rollin through Bmore for the Gentei Alleycat.

details: Mission 1: Rumble Thru the Bronx 4 (June 16): Since last year's route was published in advance using GoogleMap's Satellite imaging of the Bronx, the most ambitious know that this is a brutal race that combines the hilly, inhospitable environment of the Bronx with an epic scale that requires winners to be in amazing condition to endure the distance while beating out the rest of the field to make it to the traditional Orchard Beach afterparty, kicking off the series.

It's not just NYC Cyclists who think your laws regarding bicycle safety are lax. Telegraph ran an article on the Ghost Bikes of NYC. It's a good quick read. Give it a one over here.

Faile has a new show up and tonight's the opening party. If you're in the LES / Chinatown, swing by and check it out. It's not often that you see a substantial opening out of the Chelsea context. The work spans Faile's career as one of the most influential and pronounced names in street art.

Coat of Arms

A new shop has opened on the LES. Coat of Arms provides the latest in the streetwear market with a selection of hats, jackets, shorts, tees and sneakers by the top brands on the market. This Friday, they're having their jumpoff party. Come out, drink free beer and watch Catchdubs cut shit up.

Some updates on Necro. New Paul Hubs to Velocity Deep V's in White [again] and a new 110 stem. Mix-matched oury's scream "jungle fever" and clipless pedals for the summertime sprinting.

Oh Hell Yes

These New Balance Samples have surfaced on the 'net recently and they serve as a prime example of how this company has really stepped their game up. Purple suede with reflective "+" on the toebox. Pretty slick

Another reason to ride brakeless

... decals for your non-machined deep v's. It was only a matter of time. Benny Gold and Fatlace teamed up to produce 9 wheelset decals. These will drop June 20th. Or, you could just go to any sign shop and make your own. Pretty dope!

Mishka Webstore Exclusive

Head over to Mishka now to cop three webstore exclusive shirts. The Tentacle Assault Bear Mop, Cyrillic Trails and my favorite, the callabo between JK5 and Mishka celebrating Greg's "I pity the Dolls" exhibition. Greg gave me one of them and they are wild. Head over now, because their store is being bombarded...
