Ride of Passage – support Camp Stella and maybe win a bike!

June 13, 2011

Camp Stella will personally deliver this magical Playa Bike to one lucky Burner – on the playa!

“Celebrated San Francisco artist Ube Urban was commissioned to paint this delux comfort cruiser. This masterpiece includes a subtle swirl of sparkling sea foam and desert sky blue dusted with glittering gold. Hand lettered details tie into the candy red rims and grips.

Other accessories include a bell, a removable basket (big enough for two bags of ice), a deluxe kickstand, and LED light tubes.

Camp Stella is a Burning Man theme camp of clean and sober queer and queer-friendly folks. Some of us are active in AA and other 12 step programs. Others are not. Camp Stella hosts 5 open AA meetings during the week. All are welcome to attend.”

 A bike is on my list of problems. Right after how the heck I’m going to get there.

Tangerine Treehouse can make you a custom “head badge” for your bike*, or you can purchase a nifty pret-a-porter ‘stache.


*I believe the head is the front stem part, so these things would go where the moustache is, wrapping around.

Which gives me another great idea…a huge, made of hair, curly moustache for my bike. Or, cover it with fake moustaches and combs for people to comb them.

These tube tops are something I didn’t see elsewhere,


Sellers says,

why you ask?
-protects your top tube from dings and scratches when locking your bike to a pole
-protects your groin and inner thigh when skidding on a fixed-gear bike

Ok, so there’s lots of tube top options…I like the sparkly one!

Queen City Craft’s also has a plaid one I like.

And Faceplant Wasted has one with pretty fabric


and an awesome shop name.

So look at me, learning words like “head” and “tube top.”

To be used in far, far different capacities than I am accustomed to (though still feasibly in the same sentence).

Bag Burrito makes tool kit holder thingies that roll up (like a burrito. S-o-c-k-s!) and go under your seat (or anywhere, I guess, I’m just going by the picture I saw):



3rdlife also has a clutch bag I added to my Wishlist:


Other than some basket liners and a bag or two, there isn’t much decor on Etsy. Citystreamers (sometimes you really do have to go through 24 of 25 pages to find something) has, well, streamers for your handlebars.

I do think I’d be fetching, parading about in this hat from Darkly Sewn:
