Pat Fisher sent over the 4th installment of the “Foundations of Style” podcast for your viewing pleasure. This time around, the focus is more on bikes and how they can have an affect on the way we ride, progress, etc. Hit play and take it in.
“Issue four of the “Foundations of Style” series examines the relationship between the bikes we ride and how we ride them. From the individual scale of how we limit ourselves by using products for only their advertised purpose, to the global scale of how wealth distribution determines what technology is utilized where, this analysis reveals the socioeconomic bias of BMX’s linear progress narrative and shows how it serves to actively marginalize alternative riding styles and those riders creating them.
