SEXON SUPER PEACE KEIRIN TRIP


Nothing like a trip to the Keirin track with your buddies. The Sexon Super Peace kids got to ride around Seibuen Stadium for a session and it looks like good times. I’d be so stoked to do this any day.

Check the 2:47 mark for the reeeal isht.
2012 GEAR GUIDE: SWRVE FULL FINGERED GLOVES 

Those already familiar with Swrve Cycling know that they produce some of the best urban cycling apparel available.  One of their latest offerings is this pair of full-fingered gloves inspired by gloves worn by professional Keirin racers.  The gloves are primarily designed for riding in city traffic but we know these badass bitches are just right for the intensity of track racing.  Features include a Kevlar skid patch, passive venting to keep the fingers cool, conductive fingertips (for touchscreen junkies who can’t wait a few extra seconds to remove the gloves before checking their F’book) and of course the carbon knuckle guard to protect your hands.

The gloves are available in two different materials — classic leather ($75) or vegan-friendly synthetic leather ($35) — and are available at Swrve Cycling.

日本競輪学校61期学校生活第1部 1987年


I don’t know what any of this means but it’s still pretty rad. Nice short documentary about Japanese Keirin racing in the 80s.

Get stoked for the NJS Bike Show — less than two weeks away!
