A HUNDRED WHEELS OF DEATH: THE BROOKLYN BIKE BRAWL
Saturday, June 25th, 2005 

On the weekend before the final world championship race, bicycle gangs from all across america will converge on neutral turf in the neighborhood of Red Hook Brooklyn.  There, in front of the cranes and shipping yards, on one of the last true pieces of nyc waterfront, they will begin to trash their homemade frankenstein bikes in a free day of bike game blitz. There will be madness, blood and insane bikes for everyone to ride, and events for the stronger and crazier of you to join. Events that will include; flaming barenuckle tallbike jousting of death, the most hellish allmighty footdown, (drunk guy favorite) the bike toss, and MANY MORE! 

This totally free event with free beer provided by the Brooklyn Brewery is being organized by a union of the oldest and craziest bicycle gangs America has yet produced. Including: Black Label Bike Club, Chunk 666, The Cutthroats, and who ever else hears about it and gets their ass down to New York. Organize your own gang and bring us a challenge! 

Red hooks own madagascar institute will also be there terrorizing us for sport. 

There will be an afterparty at the Hook with 5 live bands, 5 DJ's in the basement and a cheap backyard barbeque.

  3. Yeah he was a big fan of Swoon's aparently and was compiling photos of the paste work. he was a friend of my friend Carissa. any information anyone has would be good to know, for her and everyone else i guess. he sounded like a good guy. this bike death tally is becoming really fucked. I'm back to being addicted to my helmet. fuck comfort.

  6. i didn't steal shit. you're just late. and one word? last i saw "sucka" (ie. sucker for the slangular-challenged) was a word, as was "pants." you do what you want with them, but they seem just fine standing alone.
