I’ve always been a big fan boy, of Fast Boy cycles. Erza’s bicycles are beautiful, tasteful, and look like they hail from a classic era, yet with a modern take. Good stuff. Though I’ve only chatted with Ezra a number of times, I’ve always had a lot of respect for his style.
For the past 5 years he has fought with cancer. He is now auctioning off a couple bicycles he has developed throughout this time and donating the proceeds to the hospice care he is now receiving. For more on his story, check out his blog ‘Teaching Cancer to Cry’. For more on the auctions, check out Fastboycycles.com . The auctions end tomorrow Weds at 2pm, so make sure to check them out.
This past weekend I got to chat with Ezra a bit at the Brooklyn Bike Cult show. When I left the show Saturday night I said something like “Take it easy man”. He laughed and shook my hand and said “But not too easy!” So I’ll be keeping an eye on his “http://ezracaldwell.com/for-sale” page to see what he comes up with next.
Take it easy, but not too easy!
