Get Action! Collection

This collection is the brain child of All-City team rider Benjamin “SK” Davies and references his favorite Theodore Roosevelt quote and life mantra “Get Action!” (Oh what? You don’t have a favorite Teddy Roosevelt quote?)

From our 26th President: 

“Get action. Do things; be sane; don’t fritter away your time; create, act, take a place wherever you are and be somebody; get action.” – Teddy Roosevelt

Here you can see the polka dot blue handkerchief peeking out from the collar. That pattern was the key inspiration for the design of this collection. 

As applied to his life (and I'm paraphrasing here), the quote serves as a reminder that whenever you get down, whenever you get bummed, simply go do something. Hop on your bike, move, make, keep the demons at bay by being useful. Get Action!

As we love SK, and love that he is both an absolute savage on a bike as well as a highly intelligent student of history, it only made sense to create some pieces that paid this worthy life mantra respect. 

The design is a nod to the classic Rough Riders navy blue and natural, with “Get Action” appearing under the brim of the cap and on the top of the sock. We didn't want this to be about the logo, so all branding is minimal, we wanted it to be a classic timeless design with a message to the wearer to get out there and be somebody.

Why’d We Do That: Electric Queen Rigid Fok

While we've gotten very good at "doing stuff" over the years, we often aren't very good of explaining "WHY" we did that thing. This article is an attempt to explain our reasoning... Today's topic is the rigid fork on the Electric Queen. We've received a few inquiries from dealers and customers about why we decided to include a rigid fork with the framesets of the new Cyan splatter EQ.
