Looking for Bike Lovers

I'm working on a photographic series of people who love their bikes. It doesn't matter if they are fixed gear, single speed, retro rebuilds, long as the bike and owner have character. I'm working on a series of studio portraits, portraits of riders on location, shots of bikes on their own in and out of studio. Looking for men and women of all ages.

I'm hoping to get enough to put together an exhibition to be showcased in Melbourne and Sydney.

Watching friends do dumb stuff

Post-Roubaix drinks session in Flagstaff Gardens...

Benzy convinces Rob to try and play this 'game'...

You have to eat the plastic ringpull from a six pack no-handed. You win if you get it all in the your mouth at once. You don't have to swallow.

Funny to watch, scary to think about.. both competitors gagged...

Don't call it a comeback

So I was pretty pumped to see this arrive in my inbox today...

THE REVIVAL from morehartfilms on Vimeo.

The blurb was as follows...
"In the name of good times, great spots and progressive riding, we are proud to announce that we’re packing our bags and hitting the road. Armed with HD cameras we’ll be heading out in search of some of the best riding North America has to offer.
Beginning on May 16th, 2009 we will be touring eastern cities, starting in Toronto then heading to Montreal and finally arriving in the Big Apple. We aim to reveal the riding and culture that exists within each one of these amazing cities. Filming is also underway in Vancouver where the locals have been pushing hard to lay down some of the best lines ever seen on a fixed gear. Along for the ride are some of the most progressive riders on bikes today, including but not limited to:
Tom Briggs
Duncan Lewis
Sam Miller
Tom Mosher
Ryan Nariata
Eiichiro "TenTen" Temmyo
Torey “HFwido” Thorton
Wayne Morehart
and Many More.

Given that i have ridden with (and can call myself a good friend of) a lot of these riders I am really stoked to see this come together. It has been rumoured for a few months... and i have heard a few more 'guest' names mentioned.

This will hopefully be an amazing film... with some very positive attitudes and some very different styles.

PS: there's a pint to the first person to spot my cameo in the trailer ;)

Since I stared riding religiously for the last 12 months, its always been hit and miss with carrying the tools and tubes necessary for random emergencies. You know you should always have the spares in your bag, but sometimes you don't carry a bag. Murphy's law also reminds us that you always get a puncture when you are least prepared for it. 

In a desperate bid over the last year to lessen my carry loads, I invested in some c02 canisters, a mini inflator valve, and ditched the trusty ol pump. I have been lucky since then to only have punctures in close proximity to bike shops. In other words, I have not actually used them before. Many people have told me about the pros and cons of the technique, and from there I have had a confident view of them filled with doubt...

Today's adventure with Sime saw him with a flat tire just out of the city.  We pulled over and I whipped out my tube and co2 canister. Two blinks of an eye later the new tube was on and we had the canister loaded and ready to go. One deep breath and 'ppsssssssssssssssstttttttt'. 

Done! All in record time!

I have to admit we tried it twice as the first time we inflated the tire too quickly and we ended up with a bulge which looked like a snake swallowed a rat. But I reckon we would have still been pumping the tire by the time we got going if we had a regular hand pump. And there was more pressure in the tire than I reckon I could have got with a hand pump.

There are no pictures to this story, all I really wanted to do was to say that I absolutely believe in this thing. You might say that it's just a waste of $3 or there is no need for another thing to end up in landfill....but not having to sit on the side of the road with a hand pump trying to get your tire up to 100psi is worth more than $3 to me!

I'm the one that's tattooed on his arm...

So after a couple of questions. some small discussions and very little forethought I'm calling this sunday as the 'Easter Treat Adventure'.

Meet: 12pm (normal ride time)
You need:

  • An easter treat... (something you think someone else would like... be it sweet, sour, alcoholic, wearable, whatever)
  • Your helmet!
  • Your bike
  • A PEN!!!

I'll explain the way it works on the day but I'm betting we will be riding by 12:30. If you think you won't make it in time, call someone.

It's not a race, but an adventure... it's easy! and fun! Short course! No pressure...

Tell your friends...

We will be done by 2:30-3 if all goes to plan. The actual adventure will take less than an hour, I promise.

Then probably off to PonyBikes for their opening party that afternoon
