Rad Ball stamps at Keirin Cafe

Adam, Zach, Matt and I stopped at keirinberlin one of the days after Worlds. This is a famous shop. I got to meet Mo, who Zach and Adam were already friends with. We hung out for a bit, looked at bikes, drank Bionade, talked about the kids today. Matt asked me to get a photo of one of the many old cycling stamps that are framed in the shop. A really impressive collection. I took a close look at them because the art used is really interesting. Kind of reminds me of what some fliers are like for this generation of cyclist. After snapping the one for Matt I noticed a couple of rad ball stamps.

Don’t have much to say about this one other than it has a really cool flier. It would be cool to hit this one and then go to Inter Bike in Las Vegas from the 22nd to 24th. but I don’t have that kind of time right now.
