This one comes from the Rudnick family, and we don’t take kindly to anyone messing with the Rudnick clan.

STOLEN: 56cm yellow Masi Fixed Speciale. My son had it locked to a friend’s bike in the Kenwood neighborhood last night, hidden in another friend’s back yard. Mostly stock, except a maroon chainring and the red wheels. Looks a little beat up and one side of the bar tape was coming undone. Note Cars r Coffins sticker on down tube.

Let’s get it back.

Hammerbone Prize Caps

by Jeff on July 11, 2014

Yesterday Leif hit me up with these sweet pieces
10525931_810052175695979_6256750519362345585_n
So stoked on the return of the “Holy Shit I Won Caps.”

For those of you not familiar, during the formative days of Bike Jerks, one of my better sidelines was making caps, or more precisely dying and printing on Pace caps. Printing on a finished cap is wildly frustrating and a huge time suck, so I’ve since given it up, which meant the demise of the special winners caps that I made each year for the victors.

Well, this year Leif has brought it back and they are the fucking best.

Thanks Leif.
