Earlier this year we hired illustrator George Retseck to render a Macho Disc for the cover of our Annual. We fell in love with the results for a myriad of reasons. For one, the dude's always been a legend to us because of his work on the iconic early 90's Bridgestone catalogs.
Yesterday evening was a cold rainy fall day here in Minneapolis. On the ride home I was wearing what I rode to work in: a long sleeve wool jersey, cut off Dickies knickers, a wind jacket, and medium wool socks. Only a half mile in, the exposed skin on my legs started stinging and bumming me out something fierce.
The other day I was messing around with my winter bike / fixed gear commuter, the first ever All-City frame Big Block prototype number 1. This thing has seen 4 winters now and keeps going strong. I figured I'd take the opportunity to shoot some photos and show how the bike has evolved over the years.
While we over at All-City don't have the best looking models, we do happen to have the best looking kits in the game. If you want to look good this year and for year's to come, get to your shop and ask them to order up some. Our jerseys and bibs are made in the U.S.A. in partnership with local homies Twin Six.
We just received our shipment of limited edition Peugeut inspired long sleeve wool jerseys in black recently. Like our short sleeves, these are made by Woolistic from the finest Merino wool available. In addition to my normal shots on the picnic table out back, yesterday Josh and I took advantage of the ridiculous temps (40's in December) and lack of snow to once more do the ever awesome Low Road to Sibley route. We took the shortcut that I found last week and knocked at least a half hour off our time.
