Announcing the first Bikeyface book, Bike ThereBike There is a 24 page mini-comic on how to bike around a city. The mini-comic is an introduction to transportation bicycling that was inspired by this original post for bike curious and new bicyclists (as well as any other bicyclists who love to laugh, bike, and share the lifestyle.)

The comic contains some illustrations that have appeared online as well as new ones. All illustrations have been updated and rendered in full color. And while there are many bicycling guides out there, Bike There is a little more humorous and a little less stuffy. You can get it here!

FREE! Bike Hangers With Security Cable’s FREE!

Written by Boston Biker on Sep 12

Howdy folks, I have roughly 10 Mini Mum Vertical Bike Hangers with Security Cable.

 

 

Free to whoever wants one or all of them.  They don’t have mounting screws, but you can get those at any hardware store.

 

The only catch is you have to come pick them up down town around the park street T stop between 9-5 Monday through Friday.  I can meet you in the common with a box of them (they are heavy so if you are going to bike off with them bring a rack or a trailer or a big back pack.

Contact me if you want them, they all have to be out of here by next Friday September 19 2014.

Buca Boot: Local Entrepreneur Creates Fashionable Secure Storage

Written by Boston Biker on Oct 09

From Kickstarter:

Looks pretty cool, and they are pretty close to their goal. I am digging this movement towards fashionable, city bike based, transportation oriented cycling. I am thinking in a couple years we will start seeing cargo bikes, city bikes, parents with kids on bikes, and a lot more diverse population of folks riding to work. To the future!

Check them out if you see something you like.

This is fantastic. I wonder if it comes in hornet, or dragon, animals I think Bostonians would respect more.

I Make Stuff

Written by Boston Biker on Jul 16

I love to make things, and often these things are bicycle related. Head badges, bike earnings, bike bracelets, bike name tags, you know, that sort of thing.

I also occasionally make other non-bike related things. Several people have tried to get me to sell these things, and well I am a little shy, and wasn’t really ready, but now I am. So I have listed in the sidebar the things I currently have for sale. (currently working on a whale related set of head badges)

I am also available for custom head badges, and other work (contact me if you are interested).

If you would like to keep track of my stuff I make, or like to see what I have for sale you can check out my other website here, and my etsy store here, and as always you can get your snarky boston stickers in the shop.

I would love feedback.

Aww Shucks, Nice Write Up About My Headbadges

Written by Boston Biker on Feb 11

I like to fiddle around with metal, occasionally making some head badges. The nice author of Lovely Bicycle, has been kind enough to write up a nice post about my work.

After looking around a bit, I discovered that Boston Biker is a metal worker and makes splendid bicycle headbadges.

What I like about Boston Biker’s work is that it is artisanal: every badge is hand made, which I think is a good match for the “expressionist woodcut” style logo I have chosen. In the course of making arrangements with him to create my headbadge we also discussed the process itself, and I paraphrase it here in case others are curious how this works.

Thanks!

At some point I am going to put up some of my creations in the shop, but until then, if you are interested in a head badge, contact me. I also do other assorted bike jewelry/stuff with metal.
