Outriding the Rain

Yesterday, a few of the boys and I took a put down to Cook's Corner. It was freezing, and only got colder and colder as the day went on. Just the day before it was perfect weather. 80 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. Sunday? What happened broski? You got all cloudy and freezing on us.

We swung by Lifestyles Customs for a visor, some gloves and a bolt for Ethan's bike that rattled off. Came outside the shop and it was sprinkling with no signs of getting better anytime soon. Dark and gloomy, cold and now raining.

New bubble visor on the helmet worked like a charm. Should have bought one of these four years ago. We all split off to try and out run the rain and go home about 4pm. Sam and I ran 85+ up to LA with the rain gaining on us. Made it home relatively dry. Thanks for making it out boys.

40 oz. Coozies

Why did I not manufacture this when I first thought of it? Probably because I was hammered.

But whoever finally did the task is a hero. $8.99. Not bad.

Here is the description off the website for the 40 oz. Coozie with the cigarette and lighter holder:

Back by popular demand we've re-introduced the black-out cozy. They are all-black and come with a smoke-holder and velcro-on lighter holder for easy access to all your vices.

Our flagship product, the 40cozy, was invented out of necessity. One cold December night in Berkeley 40cozy’s two founders were drinking malt liquor on the roof. With their fingers freezing and 40’s getting warm, Carlos became inspired, ran inside and came back out with his 40 stuffed in an oven mitt.

All our koozies feature 40cozy’s trademark handle and are made from high quality neoprene to keep your hands warm and your beer cold.

A project in the works

Last night Jason and I decided to buy a project bike off his boss at work. It's only a frame and a fender at the moment, but will soon be a bad ass bar hopper. I plan on posting pics and commentary while the build goes on. We are picking the frame up sometime this week. Getting pretty stoked actually.

The rain has kept me from doing a ton of riding these past few weeks, and I'm getting the itch for another run. I think it's Freddy's turn to pick a ride, but his leg is broken so I'm not sure if he'll be up to it. Any suggestions on a good ride? A quick two day?

Took a bit of a break there...

I haven't been able to blog on here as much as I would like lately. Seems to be a reoccurring theme actually. I have been ghost writing for a few blogs, and it's really taking a lot of my time up. However, I am learning a bunch which is nice. I am going to be releasing a new blog here pretty soon, www.space626.com that will showcase our photography studio. So that is kind of exciting!

Last night the Tokyo Police Club shot at our spot, which was super dope. Really nice guys, and it looked as though they had an awesome time! So, keep your eyes peeled for that coming up. Other than that, make sure you keep watching my lady on Shear Genius! Hope she wins!

This is a repost, for my good friend...His Name is CracklaRock and he is GENIUS!!

here are quite a few blogs, websites, and flickr accounts that I really like to follow and check in on regularly. Some I check in on every month or so, maybe once a week....

But one in particularly I actually log onto every day. It's Although he has really slowed down the frequency of his blogging, it gives me inspiration as well as makes me laugh almost every time. cracklarock.blogspott.com. You have heard me mention Crack's name before in a previous blog, and if you are a friend of mine, you have heard me mention him all the time as a MASSIVE inspiration as an artist, friend, mentor of steeze, and family man. I have yet to meet the infamous Crack la Rock in person, but soon that shall change.

I am only telling you this, because Crack really needs start blogging more. And if I put it out there into the universe that we need more Crack, then perhaps he will listen.
