2 months…that’s how long it has been since I have posted to this blog.  I try not to use this blog as a personal voice, but I will this time. My world has been taken over by cancer, in these recent months and my focus has moved from searching for the obscure and interesting to watching the end of my 67 year old Father’s brave 4 year battle with stage 4 cancer.

As I sit in his room in the Palliative care wing at his hospital, I decided that maybe I should just get back at it….and so I will start with a few infographics of the mysterious and rampant disease, one that is estimated [by WHO] to take 84 million people between 2005-2015. A staggering figure.

banner_biggerWow. These are beautiful bikes. Custom built by a guy named Ezra, with a company called ‘Fast Boys Cycles
Some have bamboo handle bars, some are ‘assless’, they always sport a logo in the shape of a friendly heart and come loaded with personality. bobsled-on-fire

He states clearly and without apology…“Your right to micro-manage the project: $500 extra. All manner of stainless bits and pieces are available too, but I’ll warn you now: I don’t polish. That’s just hours of my life that I’ll never get back.”

Ezra has a great blog too.  He was diagnosed with cancer in August and has been chronicling his battle on a blog he calls ‘fuck cancer, i’m Ezra…teaching cancer to cry’
He doesn’t hold back, he’s honest and funny. Oh…and makes a mean bike.

I think you’ll want one too.
