Gumball 3000 2010 Tour Tee Sneak Preview


We just got word from Gumball 3000 on this sneak preview of their upcoming 2010 tour tee.

Check it out on the Gumball 3000 site here.

According to the Gumball guys:

“With next years route traveling from London to NYC - the inspiration for the logo was a nod to the traditional NY taxi colorway of yellow and black. The reverse side, as always, lists the route with themed fonts for each city. 100% a collectors item….”

The watch comes as a chronograph with Japanese movement and is limited to only 100 pieces. Matching the watch, Fatlace also produced a t-shirt.

Brooks Limited Edition City Colored Saddles

Brooks has clearly established itself as the finest bike saddle company in the world and it sure looks like they want to keep it that way. In recent years we have seen several interesting limited edition versions of their iconic saddles, including a collaboration with Stussy. Here we show you now their new limited edition city colored saddles. As part of their celebration of various courier and bicycle polo events worldwide, Brooks has issued a set of limited edition colored saddles for their Swift and Team Pro models in runs of 250 units. Events in Boston, London, Seattle, Philadelphia, and Berlin are celebrated in blue, mustard, red, and mandarin orange.

Nike SB P-Rod 3

Much like the Air Jordan series, the P-Rod franchise reinvents itself with each shoe, out-doing its predecessor and the competition. P-Rod is to skateboarding as MJ is to basketball, a fitting analogy which explains each signature P-Rod model’s Air Jordan style and color-way. Much like the Air Jordan III, the P-Rod III uses the same Black/Red color palette and low-profile style as well as elements from the AJIII like the lace eyelets and instead of elephant print, a safari pattern. Another excellent model for the growing P-Rod series.

McWeed Pot Stashed In McNugget Boxes

A city man who reportedly grew marijuana at his apartment and packaged his illegal drugs in McDonald‘s Chicken McNugget boxes is facing criminal charges.

Alfano, Neumann and another man were waiting in a car near North Elm Street and Norwood Street for Brandner, to come out of Gentile’s home, when Torrington police officer Quinn Sullivan saw their Hyundai Elantra, according to police. Sullivan was in the process of checking the passengers’ identification when Brandner came out of the apartment. The officer looked inside a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget box Brandner was carrying and found the marijuana, Brandner reportedly just bought from Gentile. A search of Gentile’s home yielded a seizure of 4.8 ounces of marijuana found in a plastic bag under Gentile’s couch, a large plastic bag containing marijuana plant stems, packaging material, a glass pipe containing burnt marijuana, a digital scale, a purple grinder, a pot containing marijuana plants, two cell phones, rolling papers and $89 in cash, according to court records.
