AUSTIN///CYCLE KILLERS///LANCE ARMSTRONG HOSTS RVCA x CINELLI’S “PRESSURE” AT MELLOW JOHNNY’S
Supertouch’s resident world champion cyclist/2009 Tour de France front runner/heavy-duty art collector LANCE ARMSTRONG played host to the second installment of RVCA & CINELLI‘s collaborative art exhibition, “Pressure,” this weekend at his own newly-opened cycling shop MELLOW JOHNNY’S in Austin, Tejás. Although the man in yellow couldn’t attend (being strapped into the saddle of a bike at 5:30am everyday to train in the mountains isn’t exactly conducive to partying), Austin’s fixed gear fanatics turned out in droves to ogle the bikes on display customized by a stellar array of artists including BARRY McGEE, PHIL FROST, KAWS, ESPO, ASHLEY MACOMBER, CRAIG STECYK, CLARE ROJAS, DMOTE, and more. The kickoff to a very blurry weekend that began at the art show before sliding over to the nearby 501 STUDIOS where the first-ever installment of the vaunted BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL was going down, Austinites showed that the fixie movement is alive, well, and flourishing in the Lone Star. To prove the point, San Francisco fixed gearheads/single-speed messiahs MASH dropped in to hold the world premiere screening of their new mini-flick chronicling their recent summer fixie ride through town with Lance.
