That zip up is a great touch. And the lines give it a more interesting shape than the others.

bike-loving designs

marc hummel, a philadelphia native and founder of b minus designs, makes these really cool bike-loving products that i thought you would enjoy. all b minus designs are screenprinted by hand. check them out below, along with a short interview with marc.

interview with marc:
where are you from?
philadelphia! south philly, to be precise.
when did you create b minus designs?
in the fall of 2004.
why did you start b minus designs?
my friend leah and i came up with the idea for the “bicycles are for lovers” design while goofing around in our dorm rooms our freshman year of college. our school was in a fairly rural part of new jersey, and we both thought tandem bicycles were the coolest things on the planet. we decided to use our design to launch a t-shirt company that would eventually buy us our very own tandem!
we eventually got our wish, when a fellow student saw our web site and offered us (free!), a red tandem bicycle he had taking up space in his shed. the bike still needs a lot of work, but we’re siked our plot was successful!
what was your inspiration? (this may be a bit off topic, but I’d like to mention it…):
in the summer of 2009, we decided to make b minus designs a 100% non-profit company. the proceeds of every sale go toward my fundraising goal for the 2010 “climate ride,” a charity bicycle trip from new york to washington, d.c.
check out more info. about b minus designs.

okay all…
this is my last night before i leave the west coast. in california, but didn’t make it out to los angeles before dark…
i have been absolutely humbled by the beauty and kindness of strangers on this trip.
after austin, we stayed a night in amarillo, tx. dinner was amazing…i had bbq brisket at the country barn. check out their menu.

there is also an incredible donut shop there, called…the donut shop. i didn’t get one of these for breakfast, but in hindsight should’ve.

the weather in texas was miserable; i have never seen so much fog in my life! but as we neared the border with new mexico, things started looking up.

yes, things got much brighter…

we skirted through to the painted desert. let me just say that if you have the opportunity to come here, DO. it took my breath away many times.

and i fell in love with petrified wood again…loved it when i was a kid, for some reason.

and then on to california, so that i could catch my plane today… :)

I adore the second photograph! So hippie romantic. I know this may be off subject, but I was shopping at the Free People store in Glendale and must say that I LOVE the tunes being played in the store! Is there any possible way to get the list of the tunes playing? I'd really appreciate it :)
