Fairdale Bikes Research and Design Front Derailleur Repurposing Division: Shifting Your Perception April 18, 2016
The bicycle industry has deemed shifting the front chainrings on your bicycle to be unnecessary. The front derailleur has been declared dead. The Fairdale R&D team has the vision to see that the front derailleur still has plenty of life left in it. The incredibly dynamic mechanical range of the front derailleur has many potential uses. The newly formed Fairdale Bikes Front Derailleur Repurposing Division (FBFDRD) is focused on honoring the front derailleur by finding new and practical uses for this beloved bicycle mechanism. Here’s a sampling of our latest projects.

Sandy Carson’s WE WERE THERE April 13, 2016
Personally I would be terrified to name a book this. There is so much potential for my grammar challenged brain to screw this up… WERE, We’re, where, there, their, they’re…. Anyway, I think Sandy Carson got this right. WE WERE THERE is a photo book from his unique perspective inside the photo pits at all different sorts of music shows. The photos are really fantasic… Sandy is such a master of catching candid moments. Check out more over on Sandy’s site SandyCarson.com and we highly recommend picking one up here.

I read in a business book that it is bad to depict your customers falling into a T Rex’s catapult trap but I figure most companies customers are kind of nerds. @badbadbrain joins the #fairdaleanimalclub.
