NSBIKES (24″/26″ DIRTJUMP/URBAN LINE UP) 2010

NS Bikes has finally launch his new year’s collection for Urban/DirtJump Bikes. Basically two models with different level of equipement. The Holy 1 & 2 (The 24″) with rigid fork, a big Bmx. The Metropolis 1,2 and 3 (the 26″) for biggest riders and aggressive urban commuting. As usual on the complete factory bikes, you can add a 300$+ for a serious suspension fork cause the original mounted one (Marzocchi DJ III) is heavy as fuck!!! All other parts on each bikes are just perfect. If we have to talk about “look” right here, the Metropolis II (Black/blue) is kinda ill! Pretty good line-up for completes at NS this year. Pick yours for the spring to come. -KoolFunc’88

TANNER GOLDBECK ART

Tanner is a painter/illustrator/customiser from L.A (now). I know him cause a friend of mine discovers his work and tried to work something with him for a record label identity a few years ago. At the time i’ve found he was a in-house designer for Powell at the end of the 90′s. He perpetuates the skull & bones legacy started by VCJ, creating some grafics for the brand. Of course it’s in a modern way with a lot of computerized parts for the colors but the guy got his own style and i like his black and white illustrations. Here’s a little sampler of his work, Tanner’s got skillz. -KoolFunc’88

SHAME 125TH (OLD SCHOOL FLIX)


Shame 125 is one of the guy from NY that has inspired a lot of people, especialy in europe like Skeme do. For my part i think his piece for the KRS-1 video clip with the Scott Larock dedication above is just “Perfect” and can be the exemple of a what a simple classic coloured piece must be (for my taste…). Anyway, Shame was not a hardcore technician or a complex wild-styler but he got that touch you cant front! Here’s a few pieces i’ve digged from the web (there’s not that much…) -KoolFunc’88
