"The NÖ GALLERY aims to create and display works which embrace the broad, visually appealing cyclorama that the bicycle affords. From exquisite typographical studies of head badges, to bold, graphic delineations of the humble cycling cap. We'll travel back to the pioneers of road racing, via collage, canvas and colour, and onward, through photography and film to provide an ongoing project space."

Inspired From Tracko's "Save The Track Bike!" pins, we bring you "Save The Bike Messenger!" pins. The pin speaks for itself. Bike messengers perform miracles every day. The last few years messenger companies and indy messenger alike have felt the effects of the economic state. We as messengers know our importance to the city we work in. Most companies take us for granted and don't realize how important we are to the community. This pin pays homage to all the messengers around the world working day in and day out for the love of pedaling and pushing packages.
