The Brooks England x Tokyobike Ltd. Edition Bike Is Rose Gold Porn

Brooks England is legendary in the cycling world, known as much for their long-wearing saddles as for their aggressive commitment to their “heritage quality” style and brand. For the last 150 years, and the last 25 in particular, they’ve ignored modern fads and dialed in what makes a bike seat comfortable, durable, distinctive and sexy (if you swing this way). To celebrate this big birthday they partnered with several of the world’s best bike makers to produce small batches of extra flashy, Brooks-inspired bikes. 

In this edition Tokyobike and living-legend bike builder Osamu Fukuda (of Kirin and Kinfolk fame) were tapped to create a fast and minimal city bike modeled on the Mini Velo. Brooks England x Tokyobike joint released just ten super elite bikes, hand built by Mr. Fukuda himself and kitted out with simple, drool-worthy Japanese made components. 

While they’re certainly not Brooks-old, Tokyobikes has done similar tinkering with their simple frame designs over the years. Their line of city bikes couples smaller wheels and classic frame geometry, allowing shorter people actual comfort on otherwise traditional-looking bikes. These graceful fillet brazed frames use that style, with slick details like internal housing and a copper number plate. 

Each of the limited edition design schemes emphasize copper as a central theme. In the Brooks x Tokyobike, it shows up from the rivets of the saddle, to the grips, to the rosy bling of the chainring bolts. 

Worth the £2,100 (~$ 3,000)? For a hand built Fukuda frame with impeccably curated parts, I’d have to say yes.

Oh, did you want one? Well, sorry, they’ve sold out already. But Tokyobike is happy to add a flashy Brooks saddle to any of their existing (if less illustrious) line.

Motivational Poster: Chill Skeleton Edition

If you care about design you’ve probably caught yourself sighing at a coworker’s trite inspirational post, or a friend’s Etsy-sourced hand-lettered reminder to Live, Laugh and also to Love. But maybe you (like most people cursed with good taste) should take it down a notch. Why? It looks like we’ve had needless uplifting imagery and aestheticized reminders to Be Here Now for as long as we’ve had the self-impressed humans to make them.

In 2012, archeologists working in Turkey uncovered a beautifully tiled floor featuring a seriously chill looking skeleton and a surprisingly modern message. The triptych is thought to have been part of a wealthy private home (or possibly public soup kitchen?) from the Roman Empire, likely as part of a dining area. The skeleton, in comfy repose, seems to be eating and drinking wine peacefully. 

The Greek caption can be translated as “Be cheerful and live your life.” 

U do u, yknow?

Cheery messaging, right? This guy has it figured out, and this guy is literally within us all. So empowering!

Even if you loathe positivity kittens and those ubiquitous “Keep Strong & [whatever stupid thing you’re into] On” signs like I do, their implications might be good for us. Next time you see a doozy, mentally add “Or Else…” and see if what you come up with isn’t more motivating. Another reading of this skeletal scene translates it: “You get the pleasure of the food you eat hastily with death,” which is just so inspiring, you know?

First Google Glass Devices Are Coming Off The Production Line Now, Will Ship In Batches

google glass

Google just notified everybody on the Google Glass waiting list that it is “seeing the first few devices come off the production line right now.” Google says it wants to start shipping the devices as soon as possible and doesn’t want to wait until it has produced enough to fully satisfy demand. Because of this, Glass will ship out in batches to the 2,000 “Glass Explorers” who signed up at Google’s I/O developer conference in San Francisco last year.

As far as we can see, those users who signed up for Glass through the #iwantglass campaign have not received this email yet and won’t be in the first batch.

Update: Google has now also posted its developer guides for using the Glass Mirror API.

Google says it will soon start notifying the first batch of users who will be eligible to purchase the Glass Explorer Edition for $1,500 by email. With the first devices ready to go, this means they could start shipping within the next few days.

Earlier this month, Google already confirmed to us that it would start shipping Glass within the next few weeks.

Google is clearly under some pressure to get Glass out to its developers before I/O 2013 kicks off on May 15th. Still, it is interesting to see that the company has decided to split the 2,000 devices up in batches. We don’t know much about how Google is building this first version of Glass, but we do know that Foxconn is producing them for Google in the U.S. The fact that it doesn’t have 2,000 devices ready to ship right away clearly points to the fact that these are still essentially public prototypes and that Google is still learning how to best produce them.

You can see the full email below.
