we will take a little break until - October 2019 - but will (hopefully) return refreshed and with new stuff. The shop will stay open but shipping can take up to two weeks or longer. Until October we will not reprint anything, so please don’t ask ;).
You can still pick up some of our stuff at the 12 Monkeys, Hopfenstr. 15b, 20359 HH-St.Pauli. http://www.twelvemonkeys.de/
We have some ideas cooking but simply need to take some time off and deal with some important things. Thanks for your support!
“We all want better lives, but we need to live them, too.”
We are friends in St.Pauli, Hamburg, but from elsewhere and incredibly passionate about cycling. Not as a sport, not as a hobby but rather as an identity, some sort of positive nihilism to a world and it’s paradigms which have long stopped making sense to us.
As opposed to cycling often being portrayed as a non-political, macho, ultra-tough, obnoxious and lately, a fad, we are outspokenly anarchist, anti-fascist, feminist and big on animal rights. We dare to romanticise riding with no space for irony nor blatancy.
Since the very beginning of the collective we are heavily involved with the cycle messenger / courier scene – as we are an autonomous, diy collective we are also courier owned and operated.
We feel the urge to translate our radical political mindset around class struggle, gender and equality – concepts already intrinsic to our everyday lives, which already leave their mark in in art and music – into the cycling community.
Thus taking back the streets, taking back the night - taking back our lives.
