Anthony DeRosa wowing a crowd of kids doing wheelies on department store mountain bikes last summer in Philly; shot on my dads old Minolta X-570 loaded with some Kodak Portra 400, probably at f/8 or so and a shutter of 1/1000th.

Matthias Dandois rolled through Chicago to take part in some Bakery projects last summer and during his time in town we got to shoot some photos on the roof of the Bakery. Kachinsky had a stage built by the midwest’s favorite carpenter, the one and only Jeff K for Mathias to shred on and he didn’t disappoint. It was an amazing shoot and I had a hell of a time hanging off the edge of the top of the roof to get some crazy angles; it was a great summer day spent with some new and old friends. This photo never really had a home, so I figured it was best to share it here.

Documentary: Carson Leh

Carson Leh has been making custom leather bicycle seats and cycling accessories for 4 years. He started in 2010 recovering torn BMX saddles and in 2013 he founded Leh Seats. He not only manufactures leather bike saddles and handlebar tape, but has recently branched out with new leather goods such as Macbook cases. He produces small production run leather goods for contract in the USA.

Filmer Brian Chace visited his Austin based workshop this winter to speak with him about his work and inspiration. This short film shows the process of one of his custom made BMX seats. Each BMX seat is guaranteed for life against tears.

You can find Carson at www.lehseats.com or on Instagram at @lehseats.
