It was a beautiful night. Was Juliet being lunatic when she decided to ride her fixed gear bike until the other side of the night? Perfectly rational people will assure you they do feel a little restless around the time of the full moon…
Work Sessions is our new series of videos where we will portrait interesting and passionate people about their work and what they love to do. The first interview we did is with Andy Ellis from Fixed Gear London.
Fixed Gear London are a group of riders who have a passion for the bikes they ride and the way they ride them.
Andy Ellis is one of the original founders of the Fixed Gear London collective and is also the editor of Fixed Magazine.
When Andy isn't riding the streets of London, taking photographs or writing and editing Fixed magazine, you can find him designing and developing interesting new products.
We have talked to him about how it all started, what he is doing and what his passion is. Check out the video.
Another great day in the city. Fresh air all around you and a big smile on your face. What a perfect day! Cycle around, Ribcap your head, enjoy life and feel good; because you never know when you'll be suddenly crossing the path of hot thing... and then? That's right, another big smile. Ribcap - A love story.
This season, Lee Jeans has expanded their repertoire to include a clothing line geared towards cycling in the city. Dubbed 'Urban Riders', the classic cowboy jeans company moves from horses to bicycles, and with that the focus is on functionality geared towards cyclists rather than the all out ruggedness expected from a pair of denim pants back in the day. The garments feature waterproof zippers, reflective inseams, pockets for mobile phones as well as numerous other touches that move at the pace of the modern day rider.
For their 'The City is Mine' campaign, we caught up with Singaporean visual artist Luthfi Mustafah aka The Killer Gerbil to talk about cycling. While many will know KGB for signature rodent cartoon character, not all who've followed his work throughout the years will know about his interest in fixed gear cycling that started a few years back.
In this video, KGB talks about taking a break from art to work at Lifecycle, a lifestyle bicycle shop. He also talks about his progression in riding preference, as we were all noobs once, so it's nice to hear about that. Then finally, he takes us to his favourite spot to cycle in Singapore. Check the vid!
The Lee Jeans 'Urban Riders' range is available now at the Lee Store, #03-67, Jurong Point, Singapore.
