Vanguard Designs: February Releases

The good people over at Vanguard Design just released their February bike collection, click the photos to find out more information or click on the link above to head to their main page.

From Vanguard’s private collection, the WWII BSA Paratrooper is an ultra rare and fully-stocked 1942 para-military folding bike. This exquisite museum-worthy piece comes with its authentic serial number, original British parts and components, including its front and rear brakes, wheel set, tyres, pedals, free-wheel, crank, and frame. One of the few (in full working and riding condition) in existence in the world today, this priceless find is specially released for all collectors and aficionados.

Inspired by British “club racers” and “all-rounders” of the 50s and 60s, √Čtienne is a durable, long distance urban commuter that is specially re-built and restored using a 1960s Raleigh Superb Sport frame. √Čtienne is fitted with a pair of front and rear Sturmey Archer drum brakes together and Sturmey Archer 3-speed gearing system with an original vintage stick shifter and external cable/pulley wheel. Whether participating in the l’eroica race or commuting to work everyday, √Čtienne will show you an unforgettable experience on a velocommute ride.

Cassidy is designed in tribute to the raw forms and athletic images of board track racing of the 1920s. This handsome ride is specially reconstructed and fabricated as a crafted objet d’art by Vanguard’s team in Portland. Fitted with leather saddles and a coaster hub brake, the finished product is a vintage inspired street cruiser, re-imagined for the modern world.

An ultimate ladies’ and gentlemen’s ride, Sabine is chic, simple and responsive. Built using a restored and re-fabricated 1970s Bridgestone multi-speed bike, Sabine is a no-nonsense single-speed ride that comes stripped down and presented in its purest form and function. Low on maintenance and high on the chic quotient, this ride comes ready fitted with leather gear as well as a coaster hub brake.

The Vice Guide to Liberia

It's crude and uncensored, Vice's reporting provides a fresh take on subjects and situations from around the world in areas that are neglected by conventional media but still have a riveting story to tell us all. In this series the Vice team lead by Shane Smith go into Liberiaa country located in western Africa, a country labeled as a literal hell on earth. If you have a few minutes I urge you to press play and get a shoulder level view of a place that is alien to most of us.



"Welcome to The Vice Guide to Liberia. In this eight-part series, VBStravels to West Africa to rummage through the messy remains of a country ravaged by 14 years of civil war. Despite the United Nation’s eventual intervention, most of Liberia’s young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust. America’s one and only foray into African colonialism is keeping a very uneasy peace indeed. In Part 1, Vice’s own Shane Smith provides a brief history lesson and some essential context for understanding what caused Liberia’s civil war and how things got so bad. Liberia was originally planned and founded as a homeland for former slaves back in 1821. But fast forward a bunch of years and a military coup and you find the First Liberian Civil War in 1989: yet another third-world regime change in which the US-backed opposition, led by Charles Taylor, overthrows a government unfriendly to US interests. Once in power, Taylor’s corrupt, dysfunctional government quickly finds itself under attack by local warlords, leading to the Second Liberian Civil War ten years later. From there things go from bad to total shit." -VBS.TV
