New Amsterdam Bike Show Reminder

29 April 2011, 22.33 | Posted in Bicycles | No comments »

Screen shot 2011-04-29 at 3.48.53 PM
Hey guys, just wanted to shoot out a quick reminder about the New Amsterdam Bike Show, coming up tomorrow! Chris Speyer, VP of Raleigh America and President of the BSPA will be speaking at 3pm as a part of the Bikelandia series, where he will discuss our upcoming launch of a new Raleigh brain-child website called MyCyclingEvent. This is a new cause-ride initiative for us, where users can upload content on charity rides around the country, or find rides that Raleigh is already participating in, along with other nutritional tips, expert advice, community forums, etc. If you make it to anything, I’d love to have you at this!
Other things to be around for – beer will start flowing at 1pm, coffee and food will be served all day, and Raleigh be giving away a bike every two hours, starting at noon. If you miss out on those, you’ll have plenty of other chances to get free product, check out new bikes from upcoming lines, and meet with other passionate bikers who want to see cycling integrated into our culture as much as cars. Also, there is about to be a raging after party at the Chrome store…don’t miss out.

Sebago and Stash are truly making the kool kid a bit more sophisticated. My boss and Founder of SHUT Skateboards Rodney Smith is a good frend of Stash’s. Rodney had these dope Sebago’s on today. I had seen them when I was at Capsule Show this winter and have been waiting eagerly for them to drop.

Taji Ameen’s MILK Gallery Recap

21 April 2011, 19.25 | Posted in Photography | No comments »

Celebrating Four Twenty last night at MILK Gallery was awesome! They had about Sixty of New York’s Up and coming “Next Generation” Photographers showing off their best. One of them was my good buddy Taji Ameen who I have known since he was about 12 Years old Skateboarding for a company I used to work for. Taji is now 21 ish and his photo skills just keep getting better. And so has his Skateboard Career and impact on the NYC Skateboarding Community. The best part about Taji’s photo is that it’s a photo of Mark Gonzales who is one of my favorite Skateboarders. Check out some more fans of Taji’s photo after the jump.

Raleigh has made a quick light weight commuter cycle that is fashionable and functional while looking sharp and sleek. Handles amazing in the rain and sleet. Over the Borough bridges and thru the city traffic. It’s classic looks are getting compliments from all bike lovers young and old. When I was a kid my folks had matching Raleigh’s that looked just like this one…”Classic!”

This past weekend I went to South Beach Miami to visit my Mom, Cousins and Friends. The weather was perfect and the ocean was the best way to start off the morning. Afternoons were spent relaxing poolside at The Standard. I tried to keep my evenings tame BUT had to wild out one of the nites for Joel Meinholz’s weekly “Chocolate Sundays” party at Purdy Lounge and BINGO at The Standard with guest appearances from “Vanna Black”. Great hanging with everyone and awesome seeing you Gabby and Gary! peep some pics after the jump.
