Jake in repose
Jake in repose

 

Hidden in the concord grape arbors on the outskirts of town we spotted a member of the species Jakus Superificus, more commonly known by its genus: Carbon Jake. A beautiful animal, Carbon Jake is lithe and powerful, ready to mow down miles on the road, take on the grit of a gravel ride or serve up punishment on a cyclocross course.

What will this Carbon Jake do when it springs from the arbor on a beautiful late summer day? No one can say for sure. The only certainty is that we love Carbon Jake. It’s the animal we want to be.

Monkeys on Typewriters

Each month we go to the zoo and hand out typewriters to monkeys. After a few days, we collect their thoughts and format them into an email newsletter suitable for framing or birdcage lining. Sound good? Enter your email below and check it out.

Note: we will never ever ever ever share your email. Ever. No monkey will contact you directly.
