Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I wouldn't hate on him. But his bike is almost like a sell out like a lot of other collaboration builds...but business is business, and a little image...but shep has alot of that so this cant hurt him too much.

I really have no issues with his "selling out" , hell as an artist myself I'd love to sell out. His work is just getting so dilluted and predictable.

sorry, i should have been more specific yes, its obey. and naturally very popular/commercial. i guess i was more unimpressed with the design and imagery. he has a very creative team that surrounds him and i just think maybe something a little more interesting could have been done.

whatever...dunno why i even care lol. just funny.

yeah. it's not like it's really all that original either. kinda predictable. oh well. OBEY got old years ago anyway; i'm surprised he hasn't moved on to something else.

but, i'll give it up, it looks really good. the guy never does really ****ty work.

Riding in a gas mask is really hard. You have to earn those stripes.

I'm over shep, his stuff is predictable and not perticularly tasteful, at least the stuff that makes it to the public. His older stuff is cool, but I have no respect for someone who was supposed to champion the underground and all that and now is widely available at your local buckle store.
