With a little help from some friends (well a lot of help from Greg and a wheel rebuild from Juan), mechanics at Orange 20 and with new and old parts (thanks Greg), Greg’s KHS (thanks Greg, notice the pattern?) is now my temporary thrashable CX bike. I have been riding dirt the last couple of days and I’m more hooked now, then the couple of times I did it this past winter. So much fun. I’m really looking forward to this year’s CX season and I hope to have a permanent whip by then or I’ll just keep shredding on this and feeding Greg beer for the use of the frame in the mean time.
I won’t be in attendance for this one, but you should go support these local artists!!! I have a couple close friends in this show and I’m bummed I’m missing their show, but hopefully Angelina Elise, Ashira Segal and my man Justin Kizzart will save a poster or two for me… Guys? Props to everyone in the show and the rest of you get to O20 tomorrow night!!!
ARTCRANK LAX will feature hand-made, bike-inspired posters created by Los Angeles artists. Limited edition, signed and numbered copies of all posters will be available for $40 each.
UPDATE: Big news — ARTCRANK LAX kicks off this Saturday, December 8, but that’s just the beginning. Thanks to our swell hosts at Orange 20 Bikes and their new gallery space, Red#5 Yellow #7, we’ve extended the show to run through Monday, December 17. You’ll be able to see and buy all of the posters in the show during regular business hours.
This Saturday night, we’ll be packing the house with bike-inspired poster created by local artists and more fun than would be allowable by law anywhere else in the world. In addition to awesome bike art, we’ll be serving craft beer by Widmer Brothers Brewing in ARTCRANK pint glasses, with proceeds benefitting L.A. Streetsblog, a nonprofit news organization covering the movement to transform transportation in Los Angeles by improving conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders.
Orange 20 and Clif Bar will be teaming up to provide bonus bike parking and bite-sized snacks. And we’ll be showing off a stunning paper bike sculpture created by L.A.’s own Nona Varnado out of the best paper in the world — Neenah Paper.
Go get some!!!
Congratulations to the whole O20 family on six years of serving LA’s bike community and being a home away from home for me. Plus being established on 6/6/6 is Fucking Awesome!!!
Go get some at O20!!!
Get on it!!!
These are the benefit shirts from the Levi’s launch party last Friday. I swooped up all three and I’m sure if you went to O20, they could probably hook you with the info on how to get your hands on a few for yourself.
Tonight, Levi’s invades O20. Last year this was pretty fun, and this years should be crazy. They have more product to debut and limited edition custom tees from O20, Ritte, and Moth Attack. Proceeds from the t-shirts to benefit the Bicycle Kitchen, Bikes to Rwanda and the Encino Velodrome. Come out, buy a T-shirt, checkout the new line and have a beer on Levi’s. Spread the word!!!
