Horse Cycles

I stopped by Horse Cycles to visit Thomas and get a peek at his polo bike as he was working to finish it.

Thomas is a new player to NYC bike polo but that didn’t stop him from creating polo frame and fork for himself.

Here are a few photos from that day. And I’ll get some shots of the complete bike as soon as I can.

Travel Channel Sneak Peek

Last year I was working for The Travel Channel on a TV show about NYC bike messengers and finally they have a page on their site devoted to the show. This is the first I’ve heard the title of the show. Triple Rush.

Triple Rush gives you an insider’s look at the chaotic workings of 3 different NYC courier companies as they battle for survival in this intensely competitive industry…

I can’t wait to see more, but for now there are a few short videos, some intros to the cast of messengers, dispatchers and owners. Most of the photos you’ll see on the site is my work.

And here is a sneak peek slideshow of Triple Rush through some production stills of mine.

And the question everyone has been asking… When is it going to be on?

Photos of The Grime’s Mike Schmitt

I’ve taken a little time to shoot with The Grime riders and here is a taste of some bigger things in the works.

Check for more details.

Fyxation Mesa Pedal

Fyxation sent out some of their new plastic (really they are high impact nylon) platform BMX pedals. I’m a little between polo bikes right now ( i don’t have one) so these went on a work bike. I have been riding them daily for a few weeks now.

When I rolled the bike out for the first time with these things I didn’t get to the end of the block before I thought “these feel good!” Weeks later and now that the weather has let me switch from big boots to my regular shoes I still think the same thing. These are nice pedals.

This is going to be a quick review. These Fyxation Mesa Pedals meet my picky standards for pedals. I’m going to pick up another set of black ones for my polo bike. I like these pedals and think most might too.

  • Thin profile
  • Large platform
  • I feel no flex
  • Grippy to my shoe soles
  • Bushing and double sealed bearings
  • Installs with 6mm hex wrench
  • $47.95 from Fyxation
