I traverse the vast expanses of where the noise stops.
Where the air is furiously calm in a whirl,
A raging sea of windows blur.
Let me disappear here, in the midst of the light,
Wrapped in the night like a cowl,
Fiery glad that the song of my heart
Takes up wings in my flight,
In the hours when the haunters howl.
When the days grow shorter, when the nights grow cold,
When we’re learning to put on winter clothes,
When my freckles begin to fade, and my hands tremble,
Let me go on.
We had the pleasure of working with KRNKY on a quick and dirty film shot during the last days of this summer. The temperatures were dropping to somewhere around +5C° but our masked rider soldiered on nevertheless. We truly hope you people out there enjoy this as much as we do.
Let this serve as a reminder to LET GO of the summers gone. And GO ON, ride into the new year. And while you’re at it, grab some swag from mighty KRNKY.

It’s been such a long time since I posted anything on here. My reasons are always excuses and saying i’ve been busy is boring. The truth is that it’s been a small time of complete non-inspiration and I’ve had to think about many a things and starting a new job with new people etc has really taken my thought and focus.
From now on the subject matters of this bike will be more than just bikes and more general with what is going on in my life. Hope these shots still please your eye and give you a little glimpse as to what it is to be a simple man with simple hopes in a simple nordic capital.

Had a great track day with some locals at the Helsinki Velodrome exactly 60 years after the mens final day at the Helsinki Olympics. Great day, good people, and good laps! Here are a few shots from the day and more over in properly BIG size at INSL FLICKR
Breakfast provided and in plenty thanks to the guys at YKSIVAIHDE.NET
Jukka and his bloody fabulous Affinity. Damn what a bike and the speed of the guy matches the one of his steed.
Yesterday was the third day of the Bicycle Film Festival and the day when the King of Fixed Helsinki was crowned. We got blessed with the hottest day of the summer so far and a beautifully organized event in one of the seaports of Helsinki. Blood was shed, sweat was in plenty and the king was crowned! Thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers KRNKY, Good Things International, Hyötypyörä etc etc for making it happen!
All the pictures are HERE. (And there’s a lot of them. For the people :) )
AND FINALLY. ALL HAIL THE KING! HATTARA!
