New York City DOT commissioned artist John Morse to develop 12 traffic signs that incorporate clever graphics and haiku poems to get across road safety messages. Pretty cool.
Back by popular demand for 2012.

As much as I hate to do it, I’m putting my beloved Civia Loring up for sale. It’s just not getting as much use as it should, and we need to make more room at the house, so I’m letting it go.
For those who are not familiar with the Loring, it’s a mid-duty cargo bike that can haul a week’s worth of groceries for a small family while looking great doing it. It’s outfitted with a 9-speed iMotion internal gear hub, front and rear mechanical disc brakes, bamboo fenders and rack appointments, Brooks B67 saddle, chain guard, dual-leg centerstand, and self-centering spring for loading the front rack. In my opinion it’s one of the nicest around town grocery getters on the market.
As with all of my bikes, the Loring has been immaculately maintained and stored indoors since new. I’m asking $825, with the buyer paying shipping within the continental U.S. (current retail is $1349). The frame is a size “large” — see the Civia website for details regarding the frame geometry and build spec. Contact me here with questions.
Rick Smith has pulled the plug on Yehuda Moon & the Kickstand Cyclery, every cyclist’s favorite comic strip. Citing burnout and conflicting priorities as reasons for his decision, Rick has closed shop indefinitely. We’ll miss reading the comic every morning, but we can certainly understand the difficulties of balancing work, family, and time consuming side projects. We wish him all the best.
