COG MAGAZINE

February 5th, 2009

We’re all over it. Find it at a newsstand near you or go directly to the COG website.

What’s most notable, apart from Brian’s gravity-defying hijinks, or my long-windedness, is that the gorgeous featured bike was not, in fact, built by Brian or myself. That particular knockout was designed, built and painted by Emily Klass, our erstwhile co-worker. Emily was my first long term apprentice, and worked at Circle A for about 4 years, after which she moved to New York to pursue arts of the finer variety. You can see what she’s up to here.

Photographer extrordinaire Brian Vernor stopped by the old shop in Carpenter Mills and tooks these hot pix of the whole family:

And here’s some more, including a shot of one of Emily’s other bikes:

For my personal favorite of Emily’s work, check this out. She took our paint to another level, bringing a nice dose of the Providence screenprinting sensibility.

We see Emily pretty regularly, though never often enough. You should email her and tell her to come back to Providence and make more bikes.
