Joy Ride Art Exhibition – Tristan Eaton | THUNDERDOG STUDIO Bike

For many cyclists who ride in New York City, the city is like a war zone.  The constant battle for space on a street jam-packed with pedestrians, vehicles, and the occasional rival riders.  To highlight these daily skirmishes, artist/designer Tristan Eaton and his THUNDERDOG STUDIO might have created the perfect allegory.

On display as part of Bicycle Film FestivalJoy Ride Art Exhibition, Eaton’s fixed gear bike is literally a street fighter.  Constructed from welded steel, carbon fiber and multi-coat of acrylic urethane paint.  Eaton customized the handle bar into brass knuckles, in case the rider needs to “reach out and touch” those who cut him/her off.  Polished chrome, bolt-shape scythes on wheels to cut down unsuspecting pedestrians or fellow riders who are too close for comfort.  And hand-to-hand combat is needed, Eaton also included THUNDERDOG labeled sparring helmet, face mask, chest plate and for good measure, a miniature baseball bat. You could see this and more at the 4 venues of Joy Ride Art Exhibition, on display now through Sunday. In addition, the bike is available for sale.  Please contact the appropriate parties regarding price.
