Is America ready for the Zombie-bike-pocalypse?

Image from Oakland Local on Flickr. We live in precarious times. Climate change is turning parts of Miami into the ocean. Sovereign debt levels around the globe are equal to or greater than many nations entire economic output. Nervous feelings have people “prepping” for a choose-your-own-calamity future of hyperinflation, civil war, nuclear disasters, peak oil, […]


Yakkay helmets, we have them!

Image from Luc Saint-Elie on Flickr. It took a heck of a long time, but we FINALLY have Yakkay helmets in stock again. Woo hoo! Last year, we couldn’t get half the Yakkay product line here – now we have absolutely every helmet size and cover they sell in the U.S., as well as their […]

I rode CicLAvia and all I got were these happy memories

We departed en masse and took a leisurely ride down North Figueroa Street, Avenue 20, Pasadena Avenue, and Broadway into Chinatown before going our own ways. After a mole tasting at Placita Olvera, we […]

Enter the schwag-on: Flying Pigeon LA fortune cookies

We have had a lot of cool stuff made to promote our shop: postcards, spoke cards, t-shirts and skirts, and now … fortune cookies! Our monthly Brewery Rides have taken us up Cypress Avenue, past the sweet smelling Peking Noodle Co., too many times to count. In a car, the smell of baking cookies never […]

Yay! Another Flying Pigeon LA inventory video. In this video I walk around the shop as chaos reigns – a massive shipment of Yepp baby seats just arrived, ditto for Yakkay helmets, Bern helmets, Nutcase helmets, Copenhagen Parts handlebar baskets, Linus bikes and some other stuff.

Water from the Sky!

Yesterday I rode off to South Pasadena through the second rain of the season, and the first to fall on a weekday. It wasn’t much of a rain–no doubt in Portland folks would be lying out in it trying to get a tan–but it was actual water falling from the sky, a rarity here, and […]

Flying Pigeon LA inventory on October 20, 2011

This video has some really cool stuff in it! We’ve just received a pair of Pilen Lyx step-through bicycles – one in blue with beautiful silver fenders and another in black. Both Pilen bicycles are 7-speeds with a coaster brake in the rear and hand brakes up front. A dynamo hub powers the headlight and […]
