The Hundreds x Modernica Rocker

The Charles and Ray Eames RAR chair is a design classic, there’s no doubting that fact and due to the near impossible task of being able to get your hands on one of the originals, a few replica versions of these chairs have been produced. Recently, The Hundreds and Modernica came together and collaborated in making a very limited edition run of chairs in the style of the RAR. Adding some of The Hundreds flare with Modernica’s attention to detail, the ‘CMYK Fiberglass Arm Shell Rocker‘ was born.

“Constructed from fiberglass, the shell of this chair is Modernica’s first crack at a true-black paint job. The steel wire features a Cyan color-way, and leads into Magenta and Yellow rockers.”

Carbonlite Carbon Fiber Spanners

When you think about carrying tools whilst on the road, whether it’s on a cycle or a motorbike, the thought of carrying a bunch of spanners and other tools instantly becomes a heavy affair. The general fix for this is some form of multi-tool for most people or a team car / support vehicle for the chosen few.

This is where a set of Carbonlite spanners might come in handy. A full set of these spanners is weighing in at about 190gm (less than most single spanners), which scratches the weight issue right out.

Plus, they’re made from high-strength carbon fibre which we all know makes you faster no matter what.

Strietman ES3 Espresso Machine

Espresso machines are one of those things that if you don’t have an obsession with coffee (or great design) you won’t really need one. Most households usually opt for the standard bean to cup, automatic latte or pod/capsule type machines to create their coffee at home.

The problem with these machines is that, for the most part, they’re quite complex to create not-so-good coffee. With built-in grinders, frothers and other such additions, there is always something waiting in the wings, poised, ready to potentially screw up your coffee.

5th Floor Summer Jersey

The 5th Floor haven’t released a jersey anything other than quality over the years and their newly launched 2014 Summer Jersey is no different. Created with Champion System using their full zipper, Tech Race Cut model, the 5th Floor summer jersey has been created as a complete opposite to the team jersey in terms of colourway with a white base and 5th branding throughout.

If you’re interested in grabbing one of these jerseys, there’s a pre-order open until June 15th and then an expected 6 week turnaround from that date.

Field Cycles x ENVE

Sheffield based Field Cycles have some kind of creative superpower when it comes to designing and fabricating bikes. They create some of the most stunning handmade bike frames and when coupled with their incredible, in-house paint shop CROMAWORKS, you’ve got a perfect combination.

Add ENVE into the mix and you’re guaranteed to have a match made in bike porn heaven. ENVE are a force to be reckoned with in the carbon fibre rim arena. Their attention to detail and quality control is second to none so the only framebuilder to collaborate with would be one of the same calibre and passion.

Ghostbusters LEGO

LEGO, over the years, have designed and created some brilliant special edition sets. To follow on from past successes, their 30th Anniversary was always going to have some unique qualities. Collaborating with the Ghostbusters franchise, LEGO is set to release a special edition set consisting of all its original movie characters including the 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance.

From what I’ve read, the set isn’t officially launching until June but if you just can’t wait to see what’s going to be in the kit, there’s a great video showcasing all the parts and a time-lapse of the build process including a review. I can almost guarantee this will be a collectors piece, plus not to mention pretty badass to build and stick on a shelf somewhere. Don’t sleep on this and watch out around June for the release.

Saffron x Death Spray Custom

I’ve featured a number of incredible projects by the stupidly talented Death Spray Custom on Deaf Pigeon over the years and with every new piece that I see, I feel that it can’t be beaten… this is until I see the next project and my mind is blown again.

Is there anything that DSC creates that isn’t perfect? The Saffron x Death Spray Custom bike is on another level of genius. So simple, clean and minimal yet stands out in the best way possible.

The bike was created for the Bespoked Bristol show a couple of months back and it deservedly won the best in show ribbon.

Dylan Buffington

It’s been a while since I’ve seen any MASH style hill bombing videos and in all honesty, I’ve missed them. Dylan has style for days and definitely got more skill than I have when it comes to not losing the one on one battle with tram lines! Every part of me was tense watching him riding near those tracks! Reading around, apparently Dylan was also riding with a broken pedal in this video, which makes it even more impressive!

Can’t wait to see more!

Stumptown Timber 1975 Blend

From the very little that I know about football (soccer, if you’re that way inclined), is not as “big” in the States as it is over here in the UK. There’s plenty reasons for this and I’m no authority on any of them so I’ll steer well clear.

All I do know is that the Portland Timbers and Stumptown coffee obviously make a great combination because the incredible Stumptown Coffee have created new a blend of their coffee to honour the Timbers and their fans.

Alongside this new blend, they’ve also released a new mug, emblazoned with a quote from the Timber’s chant/motto. Very appropriate.
