Vinyl biking

Many of us (at least here in The Netherlands) put on music while biking. But did you know soon it might be possible to spin vinyl records by simply riding your bike? Thanks to  designers Liat Azulay (also founder of Ludduvudde), Merel Slootheer, Pieter Frank de Jong and Vincent Beijersbergen this is a dream slowly becoming reality. Feats Per Minute is a bike that combines three things I love: design, biking and vinyl!

They have built their first prototype and hope they will have a Feats per Minute in every city soon. Can’t wait!

Fashion & Bikes

Photography + Blogs + Biking + Amsterdam + Fashion = a perfect combination of things I like! I’m an avid reader of fashion blogs such as The Sartorialist, Facehunter and Copenhagen Street Style. It becomes even better when biking is involved, for example Copenhagen Cycle Chic. That’s why it was great to see Garance Dore photographed lots of Amsterdam women, many with bikes, during her stay at the Amsterdam International Fashion Week (later all exhibitioned in Foam Photography Museum). Two weeks ago The Sartorialist also posted a series of pictures of NYC women with bikes, comparing them to the Amsterdam women on Garance’s blog. He is wisely not going into which style he likes more and I’m pretty biased, so what do you think?
