'Klunking': Carnivale De Velo from Deus
Deus is a cool brand... no doubt. If you don't know them, they are into the surf/motorbike vibe, and they do turn their hands to bicycles as well. They make a great range of clothing, including some inspired retro race jerseys.
We came across this 'Klunking' vid above whilst trawling the web one day. It may be a bit old now, but the vibe is good. And I guess that in this day and age of 27+, electric shifting and super carbon, it is nice to get back to a simpler way.
Here's what they say:
"The downhill blast. The Airtime. The sideway skids. Off the boardwalk and into the Santa Monica Mountains we took our old beach cruisers and up the fire-roads of Kenter Trail where gravity does the pushing and "The Whoops" do the launching. After gathering some good ol'fashioned road rash, we headed back to the Emporium of Postmodern Activities for pizza and beer at the Carnivale De Velo bicycle festival. Two wheels without the engine has never been more exhilarating."
