Cyclowns in Berlin

I started to blog about bike related topics and I can't stop. It is like a fever. Forgive me, but fashion gets boring after a while. The news is that the Cyclowns will play at Keirin today. And whoever stole their red tall bike should bring it there tonight, so that we can throw wheels at this f+#*ker.

Bricklane Bike Polo London

Thank you Roxy and Trixie Chicks for organizing this great Bike Polo tournament in London yesterday. 31 teams showed up at 8:30 on a sunday morning to play. Equiped with new Brooks saddles and the best energy, they played until five thirty. Team Muenchen took the trophy home. The photo is borrowed from the London Bike Polo FlickR page. The Berlin Ladiez bike Polo team won the first game 5:1 and lost the second one 1:5, the Berlin guys Mark and John joined with Kevin from Toronto and got kicked out by Muenchen, which is nothing to be ashamed of. Muenchen played hardcore.

Hipster (contemporary subculture)

Researching the history of track bikes, I stumbled over this Wikipedia entry about a contemporary subculture that rides fixed gear bikes and reads magazines such as Vice and online media such as Pitchfork. Thank god I only ride single speed. hahaha

Rock 'n' Wrestling

Es war wieder so weit. In meiner Heimatstadt Hamburg fand letztes Wochenende zum sechsten Mal "Rock and Wrestling" statt. Im Hafenklang schlugen sich die Barkeeper der Stadt bei Rockmusik auf die Nase. Der Zuender-Beitrag bringt mit O-Tönen wie "Ich hab voll das Blut abbekommen. Es hat auf meine Brille gespritzt. Das war voll geil." sehr gut die Aussage von Rock 'n' Wrestling rüber.
