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.

Here’s a little sampler of his work, Tanner’s got skillz. -KoolFunc’88
