R.I.P. Dave Mirra


R.I.P. to Dave Mirra.

The news of Dave’s passing definitely rocked the world the other day. If you’re a rider who grew up watching Dave, the news is almost unbelievable. Since his passing there has been an overwhelming output of respect and love on social media/online from the people, brands and industry folk which has been amazing to see. Even those outside of BMX have been showing love.

The Signs of Austin

the signs of austin, texas

I’ve lived in Austin, and I know a lot of you are from there or have at least visited (especially if you ride bikes). One thing I noticed on my first visit was all the great signage. Whether it’s hand painted or big neon, there is cool signage all over town.

I just came across “The Signs of Austin” site, which has illustrations of recognizable signs by Reagan Ray and some facts about each one. It’s pretty rad, go HERE to check it out.

This fantastic symbol that you may have been seeing all over social media is by graphic designer Jean Jullien, and it’s very appropriate right now.

Come Clean

Seeing as that new ALYK promo (below) dropped using some Jeru The Damaja and I’ve recently been revisiting DJ Premier produced music pretty heavy, then I’m taking this opportunity to push some 90’s East Coast rap on you bitches. Jeru, Come Clean, Premier, classic.
