9 Days ‘til Xmas
If you’ve got the need for speed, you’ll probably want to get your hands on this brand new, vintage-style Biltwell Gringo DOT helmet. Brought to our attention by musical mastermind (and eBay curator) Pharrell Williams in his collection “All Draped Up,” the DOT helmet features a snap-on skid lid for a “stripped down aesthetic.” Click here to see it.

Curator Corner: All About The Bike

Taking a peek at the the eBayToday collections on this fine Friday, we’re moved by the weekend inspiration of getting our bike gear together. eBay curator Billy Farrell gathered a pragmatic and pretty set of items for the serious biker. “Working as a party photographer in New York City, I find that getting around on my bike is one of the most cost-effective and fastest ways to get from party to party” explains the famed shutterbug. 

Take a look at Billy’s whole collection entitled All About The Bike. To follow Billy’s other collections, visit here

Insta-Peep-O-Gram: Brittany Hildebrandt 
Photographer Brittany Hildebrandt’s work has that very “now” feeling to it. Through her lens, we get to partake in her small, sweet observations — flowers at springtime, feet standing in snow, countless cups of coffee. It is a thoughtful life she leads, and you can live it with her — vicariously, of course — on Instagram. Check out her feed here.

Bike Brigade
It’s the beginning of May and luckily for us, springtime is here (for New Yorkers, at least). With the nice weather comes a little less clothing, so go ahead and stash your winter layers for next year. But most importantly, it’s time to bring out the bikes. Today, walking in SoHo, we spotted this black city bike with fluorescent green accents. Vintage bikes don’t necessarily need to come with a hefty price tag, and after scouring eBay, we realized that the proof is certainly in the pudding.

Hardy Boys
At the ripe old age of 25, Sir Edwin Hardy Amies found himself — by way of his mother’s connections in the London fashion scene — forging quite the career as a master tailor and designer, dressing everyone from the gents of Savile Row to Queen Elizabeth II herself. He was an icon and an innovator, commissioned for projects ranging from outfitting the British ‘72 Olympic squad, as well as designing the costumes in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The brand’s heritage is a thick thread woven throughout, but that hasn’t prevented them from keeping up with the times. The company, under the creative direction of Claire Malcolm as of 2010, is as hip as ever. Want a piece of the legacy? See what eBay has by clicking here. Ladies, this a strong gift for any boyfriend!

Where Eco Meets Urban
Set high above an urban landscape, this office, with its pitched ceiling and exposed beams, feels like a cabin in the sky. Even the patterned carpet is reminiscent of water ripples or windswept sand dunes. And it’s not just the big things adding to the woodsy sentiment here; it’s the little ones, too. The bike imbues the space with an eco-friendly vibe, as do the hanging plants near the back. (Our money is on this office being in San Francisco or Portland, Oregon) If you’re looking to recreate this look on your own, we found this handmade eco-friendly rug by Surya on eBay for $113. And if you’re looking to rig up a few hanging plants of your own, look no further than here.

Is there any better way to get in shape and look cute? It’s time to get those comfort bike cruisers out of the home and strolling through the neighborhood. Old school BMX’s could get the trick done too. If the terrain is rougher, take a mountain bike. There’s bids starting at less than $200 for each category. Enjoy your Summer ride.
