Everybody checking out MMC’s new cannondale build ↑ What’s better than building a new bike to ride on your birthday?
Frist of all, thank you for your support for CityBikr! We’ve been having 60 unique visits per day on average with occasional outburst for a while now. It’s not much but it means a lot to a small photo blog like this. And when I say “we”, I don’t just mean me, myself and I any more. As you’ve probably noticed that Karl Ke, a.k.a 大师 (the master) has been posting findings from his trips too. Thank you Karl!
A while ago I wrote a bilingual article for 48×15, a magazine in English (now in 2 languages) about fixed gear and urban cycling in China. It’s finally out! You can read it here: http://issuu.com/48×15/docs/48x15vol003_issuu I also did the “CBNC Style Guide” and “Sack Attack” Chinese translation, which was quite a job cause Adam talks like he’s speaking a totally different cool language. The magazine in print is also free. You can get it from Factory 5 and other bike shops around Shanghai.
Last but not the least, I’ve been riding my Airwalk fixed gear bike for a little over half a year now. It has gone from white to grey, becoming a little rusty and the saddle got dirty and worn out. It would be great if any bike shop/company can sponsor me. I do ride around the city taking photos and get asked where I got my bike, what brand is it and where to get a bike almost every day. 🙂 (The only money I made so far, from a night ride photo sold to LA based 72andSunny used on marketing for a certain big corporation, has been spent on website hosting, domain and a small upgrade to my camera.)
Finally, I don’t write much and thank you for reading all this. Now enjoy flipping through the photos!
