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.
