Writer Mike Spence on our show: “I’m sure the majority people who ride bikes are not pompous jerks, but I’ve heard the phrase “It’s not a mode of transportation, it’s a lifestyle,” enough to worry that giving cyclists their own clothing line is asking for trouble…”

Shawn Drayton from Osloh visits the HUB

Shawn Drayton from Osloh visits the HUB

Shawn Drayton wanted to have clothes that he could bike in during his dialy commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan.  He wanted something that was practical for biking, but also for walking around in.  And so Osloh was born. Shawn works as a designer of children clothes while promoting Oshloh on the side.  The line, which was just launched this past July, features three different styles of mens’ pants and bicycle-focused V-neck t-shirts.  The pants have adjustable snaps at the calves so you don’t have to roll up your pant leg while riding, and two rings above the left rear pocket for holding a U-lock.  Shawn thinks that if bikers see something that “doesn’t look like like spandix or a racing jersey, they’re going to be all for it.”

Shawn’s designs will sold at the HUB starting tomorrow, and they’ll also be featured in our show on Saturday, October 24.

What’s all the Hub-bub?  We’re hosting New York’s first bicycle fashion show on Saturday October 24.  The event is running from 9pm-12am, and the show starts at 10pm.  With fall and winter lines by Reiss, Lela Rose, Shiela Moon, Osloh, and Brooks, we’re featuring new styles to suit your ride.  And, of course, we’ll also have bikes to match your look.  The show will feature the HUB’s favorite frames: Batavus, Biria, Abici, and new wheels such as Biomega, Moof, and Linus.

It’s fashionable to be socially and environmentally conscious.  Bicycling and fostering a bicycling culture in New York City is at the center of this.  The idea that a bike can add to your look, or that you can express yourself through the way you choose to get around, is at the center of our show.  Biking can be classy, it can be edgy, it can be whismical–the point is that it IS whatever you make of it.  So the question is, what is YOUR bike style?

And now I want to welcome you to this blog, where you can get a peek into our planning process and become a part of the social movement that is emanating from all that the HUB stands for.  This blog will be written by people who work at the HUB, whether fixing the bikes or serving our customers.  Anyone who has stepped into 71 Morton Street knows that they’ve found a unique part of New York, a business that focuses on social change and self expression before its bottom line.  We encourage all comments, all thoughts.  We hope that you’ll join us, for our fashion show and all that comes after.   Welcome.
