2011 RRB AUCTION BIKE

Seeing as how this is a community of vintage and custom bike builders, it only makes sense that once a year everyone joins in on a single project with the intention of building one cool ride. The mission this time around was to build a replica of the boardtrack inspired bike illustrated in the RRB “Speed Forum” T-shirt design. It was fun watching everyone come together to build this bike and it’ll also be fun watching the auction for it starting December 1st. Check out the build thread…

STEVE JOBS 1955-2011

Back in 1991 I started my education as a graphic designer and then later my career as a designer in 1996. Throughout all of these years I have been a Mac user and have relied heavily on the incredible products that Apple has provided to design and earn a living for my family. It was not unexpected to hear about Steve Job’s passing today, but is was definitely shocking. As a Mac Pro, iMac, iPhone and iPad user I can honestly say that they are the best computing and communication devices I have ever used. Heck, this very site was designed and built on an iMac. Thank you Steve Jobs for all that you have done…you will be greatly missed.
