Whilst walking in Brooklyn yesterday for the photoshoot of our leather backpack travel sack we stumbled across this great little bike shop called Tribe Bicycle. It was indeed a great fortuitous stop because we discovered a a treasure of super cool and affordable bikes.
Tribe Bicycle Co. was founded in 2013 by two friends, Mitch Rasmussen and Wyatt Lonergan, while the pair were living in Hong Kong. As cyclists and avid fixed-gear riders the two decided the current market needed a change and sought out to create something different. The idea was to create attractive, top-notch cycles for the everyday urban rider - and do so at a very reasonable cost. After a year of product development and manufacturing the pair of friends relocated from Hong Kong to Brooklyn, NY and in the Summer of 2014 officially launched Tribe. From the first concept of the Tribe, the idea of having a global identity and reflecting that within the products has always been at the forefront of the brand. The founders’ unique experiences traveling the globe play a huge part in the design process for Tribe.
Every bicycle is therefore named and styled after a place they have visited or person they've met and have been inspired by. The color choices and branding of global coordinates on the bikes further emphasize the meaning behind each product name. Like you, each bike has a story. Through these memories Tribe has created something that truly connects with their love of travel, fun, adventure, and life. Tribe currently offers four unique product series - the Hi-Ten Series, the CRMO Series, the 6061 Track Series, and the City Series - and plans to continually develop and create new products focused on urban cyclists in the immediate future. As they expand their focus will remain on creating quality bicycles that look great and ride even better.
Their showroom and warehouse is located at 254 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn. For more information visit

Along with the tighter clothes, I seem to be carrying more and more each day. My wallet is always filled with cards, cash and other other bits and bobs. My mobile phone is not the smallest piece of equipment either, and my keys are bulky and really irritating when storing in the pockets of some tight trousers. And do not get me started on the case for my glasses. There has to be a solution to carrying around all of this bulky gear, right? Even for us fellas?
