We Don't Save Lives

It has been a long time … The BMX Roots site is still in my blood and my BMX roots mean a ton to me, and influence me daily, but I’ve got a new site that’s much more broad, and hits on my other interests – though still with some BMX in the mix. I created it with my close friend and colleague, Stuart Wallace, an Englishman among Amerimen.

Since we’re in advertising, the name comes from that old saying “It’s advertising, we’re not saving lives…”

I Love My Bicycle

There is nothing more that I need to say about the devastating earthquake that occurred in Haiti last week. Now, with another hitting today, and the constant aftershocks, the people of Haiti can use any and all help far into the future.

One BMX-related way that you can help is to pick up “I Love My Bicycle, The Story of FBM Bikes”, directly from the director, Joe Stakun. All of this week, he is donating the profits of every DVD sold to the relief efforts.

You can order the DVD here: http://www.ilovemybicyclemovie.com
Follow Joe on Twitter: http://twitter.com/ILoveMyBicycle

Also, on the BMXMuseum, user Polanco, from neighboring Dominican Republic, has started a drive selling BMX parts or just looking for folks with a few extra bucks in their PayPal that want to contribute.

Mt Baldy T-Shirts

Mt. Baldy Pipe – Photo and T-Shirt by Jared Souney

Jared Souney, action sports photographer extraordinaire, has T-shirts for sale on his site featuring one of his photos of the infamous Mt. Baldy. He’s only making a few in each size, so if you want one, go scoop one up, pronto! If Mt. Baldy means nothing to you, get yourself a history lesson, son!

Nice to see some well-designed, limited edition t-shirts popping-up in the land o’ BMX lately. DefGrip and Mutiny bikes have both put out some solid examples as well.
