Amongst the multitude of bike shops across Manhattan and Brooklyn, 718 Cyclery (www.718c.com) stands out for their unique approach to the business. This is the "inverted bike shop".

A geeky look into the ever changing world of the bicycle by surveying the history of the bike from the velocipede to the BMX bike.
The bicycle has its roots in a device that helped the world shift from the horse to the machine. Ever since it has adapted to the myriad of changes that have taken place in society over the past 200 years. From adapting to the waves, the mountain and the city the bike has evolved into a machine that culminates in the BMX bike.
As the 22inch BMX bike, the 24 inch cruiser, the 26 inch mountain bike and the 29 inch track bike adapt to the 20 inch BMX style, should "traditional" BMXers reject this or embrace it as a natural part of what it means to be a part of the world of bikes.

CEMETERIES AND BMX
A day on a BMX bike or a day in a cemetery evoke similar emotions as head stones and ledges act as reminders to live life today because tomorrow is never guaranteed.
Filmed at Allegheny Cemetery and spots in and around Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: American V: A Hundred Highways
Song: God's Gonna Cut You Down

In 2006, The Shadow Conspiracy released 300 Limited Edition complete 24 inch cruisers in collaboration with the graffiti artist, Invisible Man. The result was the Invisible Man 24" Cruiser.
This mix is a part of the "Celebrating 35 years of BMX" series that I will be doing in 2012.

View Twin Lakes Park (Peach Plaza Skatepark) in a larger map
One of the really odd things about skateparks in Western PA is the total absence of directions, or any help really, for finding parks. I live about 40 minutes from this park. It is a "skate plaza" and part of Westmoreland County Parks and Recreations Twin Lakes Facility. It took me an hour to locate it using google maps with satellite. Anyway, the park is hidden within the larger park (much like many parks in western PA).
The official name of the skate plaza is Peach Plaza Sake & Action Park. The website offers ZERO help in finding the park.
