Joy Ride Art Exhibition – Tristan Eaton | THUNDERDOG STUDIO Bike

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 Festival Joy 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.
