Dropped by the Museum of Art and Design yesterday to see the Bespoke exhibition. The craftsmanship of bicycles were amazing. Unfortunately the security guard of the museum also wouldn’t allow me to snap any photos. I managed to only shoot one before being told photos aren’t allowed. Major bummer. I did however, find pictures on the internet. Head over to Rosko’s Flickr for more.
Two of Bilenky‘s bikes are now on sale in the Velo Cult store. The thing with bikes this beautiful is that I always feel bad if I would have to ride it on the street or anywhere even though the intention of any bicycle is to be ridden. In any case, the pictures are something to drool over. See more on Velo Cult’s blog.
While I missed yesterday’s PreSpoke event thrown by NYC Velo, Prolly was there to snap some awesome shots for his blog. More pictures on his Flickr here.
The Red Bull Minidrome event has came and went. It was basically what the name suggests, a tiny velodrome where riders compete for the best time over 10 laps while trying to to fall over the edges of the insanely small track with banking and combating dizziness. The concept to me is not really interesting, but they do have a nicely edited video of the event.
The Coney Island Velodrome exhibition, presented by NY Bike Jumble, opens tonight at the Old Stone House in Brooklyn. An exhibition documenting the history of New York’s last commercial velodrome showcasing bikes, programs, and pictures of the track including other events. Definitely worth checking out.
