Bowery Lane Bicycles and the Dredgers Union

26 Jan

Alright, alright…  Enough already!  It’s about time we start talking about some of the brands that will be available in the Dredgers Union store.  If you still haven’t heard about the store, you can read about it here.

Bowery Lane Bicycles was started in NY in 2008 by some close friends of the DU.  Here’s a little bit of what they have to say about themselves :

“Ninety-nine percent of bikes sold in the US are not made in America. We are a part of the 1%. Our bicycles are welded, painted, assembled, packed and shipped in New York City. No big assembly lines, no mass production, no robots. Human hands. American Hands.”

In addition to carrying these bicycles, we at the DU have also begun development on a capsule collection of functional outerwear/apparel designed with the cyclist in mind.  This Bowery Lane Bicycle by Dredgers Union collaboration will also (of course) be made in USA, and designed in Cleveland/New York.

A long time ago on my RS blog, I posted about the site: COPENHAGEN CYCLE CHIC. Well, this morning while re-visiting this blog I was really kind of blown away by the post on Cycle Stats…so, apparently at different points in the city are counters of some sort tracking the number of cyclist that ride by each day and the cumulative number for the year…and the numbers….ARE.REALLY.REALLY.HIGH.  Like, for example, in this image below…

This reads:

You are cyclist number 5303 so far TODAY.

Out of 1,274,727 so far this year on this stretch.

I wonder if there was a counter in Cleveland, at say, the intersection of Detroit and W.25th, right at the start of the bridge, what that number might be….
