Elvis Presley - See See Rider


It has been claimed that the most important person of the 20.th century was Elvis.A lot of people would disagree.Larry and Harry don´t care;they are just crazy about Elvis!
In this beautiful video you see Elvis in one of his last performances.Though fat and unhealthy he is giving one hell of a show.Please note the army of men in red helping the King.

Surprise

Now it´s christmas and finally we can open up our christmas presents.We know that you,dear readers,have been very excited about the huge christmas present we showed earlier in this post.What was it inside the brown wrapping?There has been a lot of good guesses.The closest were the ones who thought that it was a Bullitt.But the masters of bikebuilding,Larry and Harry,are also the masters of wrapping.
Inside the present were a handbuilded art-trike!!
Ho ho ho;merry christmas everybody from Santa Harry and Santa Larry.

Sony Music Disappointment


In the recent newsletter from Larry and Harry they wanted to share a fantastic christmas song with their friends.It was a fantastic video of their mate,Elvis Presley,performing "Blue Christmas" live.
Today our two Santas have received loads of mails from german friends,complaining that they haven´t been able to see the video in Germany.Hey Sony Music;what kind of a christmas spirit is this??

Happy birthday


70 years ago a truly great poet,songwriter,guitarplayer and thinker was born.Today we therefor celebrate him;a man who was not afraid of anything.
Frank,Larry and Harry still miss you!

Snow over Copenhagen

French snow fighting


Today there was a mail from our good friend,G.He´s working as a Bullitt messenger in Paris and like every other city in Europe they have had some snow lately.Well,not exactly like Copenhagen,just a few centimeters.Never the less this powerful nation has been given 16 of these vehicles to the city of Paris in order to get rid of the snow in the streets.
Larry and Harry chose not to comment on this;they just quote G when he asks:"Next time nuclear weapon?".

Review from a customers wife


The following is a mail that Larry and Harry received some days ago:

"I lost my husband to cycling some time ago, if not to beach road then to a rail trail, a ride up Mt.Bulla or a trip to Lysterfield Park. Our shed is filled with the guilty other parties (all necessities, or so I am told), there's the old mountain bike, the red road bike and the single speed commuter. It was with no shame, recently, that my husband told me he'd "found another ride that we really seriously needed to buy", only later confessing that the afore mentioned ride, the Bullitt Milk Plus Cargo bike, was in fact already on order!

He was about as happy as a kid in a toy store when the DHL guy arrived with the bike. He hummed his way through the construction video and, once the box of parts had become 'the Milk Plus', he took her out for her maiden voyage, returned with her first cargo (a beer or two) and fondly declared her 'open for business'. And that is about the last I have seen of him and our daughter..

I hear our daughter though, in fact she can be heard about two blocks away, and there's a notable theme to her chatter: "this is the most fuuuuuun", "around again, around again" at the roundabout, and my husbands least favourite "go faster Daddy, faster, faster".

I've found the silver lining to this cloud as, with them out exploring, I can grab a coffee and drink it while it's still hot and hang out with our younger tot a little. But only a little as he's getting his first bike helmet this Christmas and, with a seat installed, will soon be out on the road with the others.

In all seriousness, the bike is fantastic. It looks slick, rides like a dream and entertains our children beyond measure. Importantly, it negates our need for a second car and, in fact, vastly reduces the number of local journeys made in our only car. Perhaps an unexpected pro, though the bike gets noticed and though it draws a point, stare and occasional wave, it does generally speaking start conversations with a really nice sort of person!

So I celebrate this new bike, our second car, our small white beaut-Ute, the best toy that either kid (or their dad) could have been given this year. As the mountain bike gathers dust, and the shine dims on the road bike, the 'Milky Wonder' has found a place in my heart."

Thank´s,Hannah.There´s always a job waiting for you in the adverts-department of Larry vs Harry!

Arrghhh!!


How could we forget?Yesterday it was 30 years ago since an asshole shot John Lennon.
John,where ever you are,Larry and Harry sends you a lot of rockn´roll greetings.

Patience


It looks like the cold weather is permanent now.Usually the snow in Copenhagen melts after a few days,especially the snow that falls in November.But despite the promise of global warming the town is still cold,damn cold!
No problem,spring will come in the end of April...

More snow



Today it continues to snow in Copenhagen and the bikelane is crowded with bicycles.
Hey you copenhageners;we are so damn proud of you!

25 November 2010

Copenhageners never give up


This morning when Harry was riding out to the workshop it was snowing.So of course the bikelanes were slippery and unfriendly.Now Harry,unlike Larry,is a tough guy who gives a damn about bad weather and he expected to have the new extra wide bikelane to the workshop for himself.
Harry,wake up!Remember that biking copenhageners never give up no matter a little snow.The bikelane was as usual crowded with bikeriders.
Ride on you fellow viking citizens!

Wow,take a look at this photo.Though these two cool dudes doesn´t seem to work hard for it they are going faster than the bus!!
Larry and Harry apologizes for claiming that the Bakfiets is oldfashioned and slow.

When cool was cool


Today a lot of rock bands act like they are some real cool dudes.Make videos and recordcovers where they look super tuff in leather and falls teeth.Please,take a look at this video from the 70´s;it´s a rock band who didn´t gave a damn about any rules.They dressed and acted like idiots but in the cocktail with rock´n roll,well,they were cool!

What´s wrong with Larry and Harry??



OK,the fair is over,the last chapter was written a week ago.We know how it ended;Larry and Harry had a successful fair,sold a lot of Bullitts and showed the bike industry how to build bikes and how to behave.Over and out,the world is now a better place for you and me and our children and grandchildren.The visionary crusaders of the bikeindustry,Sir Larry and Sir Harry,left Germany in a cloud of dignity an honor...
Actually,the idiots got lost in the forrest again,trying to walk to the airport with their suitcases.Sweaty and muddy they barely reached the airplane.
Great guys,so pleased you survived Germany!

Bullitt vs Pyssy Wagon

>
A good friend of Larry and Harry,the world famous blogger Mikael Coolville Andersen,recently did a poster showing a Ferrari and a Bullitt.The Ferrari was "so last year" while the Bullitt was "so this year".Now all bike critics,of which there are many,will say:bullshit!

Well,a Ferrari for urban use,can only be purchased for one reason,namely to impress girls.Considered that fact,here is a part of an email Harry received today.A happy Bullitt owner wants to describe the impact of riding his vehicle:"Also,don´t tell my wife,but this bike complete with dog accessory,is a total "Babe Pulling Machine!!!"My partner recently bought an Aston Martin,his dream!He is 60 and finally gets his dream machine.I spoil his day,by telling him it´s shit,I have the ultimate babe machine,,,a Bullitt TNT and a dog!!Hyde Park on a sunny day,,,wooo,non stop photographing by tourists".

These are facts we like:a couple of drops of oil for the bike and a meatball for the dog instead of a tank of burned gasoline will help save the world from a lot of CO2.And,now officially proved,make girls go wild!
So all you british babes;if you are looking for the man of your dreams,it´s Hyde Park!

Fuckr... uh... Flickr

Larry and Harry have loads of kinky photos and they needed a place to put them. So we've made a Flickr group.

Join up and chuck all your photos of Bullitt goodness into the group. We call it the Bullitt Smithsonian.

Larry and Harry on Fluckr.

It all comes to an end


After a busy week,the fair has finally come to an end.No more Bullitt testrides,no more explaining the steering system and no more "so good to see you"`s.It´s over!
What was a spotless exhibition two days ago is now a refugee camp lookalike.Finally nobody officially gives a shit about bicycles.

A lot of bikes have been sold the last week,of them a huge amount of Bullitts.Pilgrims from all over the world have gathered at the Larry vs Harry booth in order to get a glimpse of the famous cargobike.And of course to shake hands with the superstars from Copenhagen!Though rich and successful,neither Larry nor Harry denies to give an autograph or a kiss on the cheek.Damn great guys!

Waiting for their Learjet to get a landing permission,Larry and Harry have established a mobile working station,so they still can communicate with the world.From this temporary headquarter they wish you,dear reader,a nice a sunny day!
Roger,over and out.

Star quality


OK,maybe we haven´t been fair to the fair.Though there is a common look and attitude among the crowd at Eurobike,there are persons that´s cool and stylish.
Take a look at some of the best friends of Larry and Harry.

What´s wrong with Larry and harry

>
Not wearing company shirts makes Larry and Harry look really strange at the Eurobike fair. A black or dark-blue shirt with 'Bullitt' written on the collar would make them look like real bike dealers.
And then again they are way too childish and stupid to manage wearing that nice clothes. Take last night; a great party was held by the Eurobike organization. They had hired the Berlin act, The Bearpit Karaoke, to come and give a show. Of course Larry and Harry felt they should join the party and of course it would be polite to sing a tune or two.

Today neither Larry or Harry have any voice left from singing over twenty songs. Both had an accident with their Bullitt afterwards and ruined their exhibition-pants. Larry also bruised a rib and Harry has an aching head from hitting himself with the microphone while performing his version of "My generation".

Hope I die before I get old...

What´s wrong with the bike industry?


Being at the world's largest bike fair means that you are together with the global bike industry. A mix of businessmen who have entered this world because of their dedication to bicycles and biking. Right! Every morning and every evening the surroundings of the fairground is crowded with cars. Everyone is stuck in traffic, even though this is the countryside. Well, our good friends Larry and Harry will not have to wait in line, 'cause they use their Bullitts for transportation. 10 minuttes ride from the hotel, if you are bikeriding. By car it will take an hour!
This industry doesn´t give a shit if they are producing bikes, boats or bananas; as long as it´s good business. Maybe that´s why this fair is a twisted bitch with a minimum of good and new ideas.
Go grow bananas, boys!

Fignon 1960-2010


Damn it;there went another one of the true heroes!Way too young to leave this planet and way to tuff to die,the great french bikerider,Laurent Fignon,died yesterday.
In a world where we have so many Jörg Haiders to give to The Reaper,why does he then have to take the good guys??

Laurent;Larry and Harry salute you!

Eating


As formerly explained,going to a fair is lots of action and fun.Take a bikefair;you build the booth,you assemble the bikes,you polish them,you talk to customers and you sleep.Great fun.
Oh,and then you eat!Every time you get the chance you eat;small meals,big dishes,snacks,candy,icecream etc.
The need for food is as simple as the need for sex but all you can get here is food.

He´s not a crook!


Larry and Harry has landed in Friedrichshafen!
One hour later they got lost in the forrest while trying to find their hotel.This Bavarian jungle really tried to swallow the brave danes.Well dressed (of course) on their Bullitts (of course) with a couple of very heavy suitcases they struggled through the muddy wilderness,totally lost.Poisoned leaves,mosquitoes and extremely muddy paths;lucky to be alive!
Two hours later they were watching TV and drinking german beers;life is tuff but great!

On tour

Larry and Harry on Tour 2010


Now it´s time again!
Apparently Larry and Harry didn´t learn from history.This year they will challenge each other again and go together to the southern Germany to try to sell some Bullitts.It´s a lot like Joseph Conrad going into Congo.
Well,it´s only Bavaria but it´s scary shit....

Do you feel lucky,punk?


During the Velovisipn conference in Copenhagen a few months ago there was a goldsprint competition arranged by the magnificent Danish Bicycle Federation.All bikeshops and bikeproducers in Copenhagen were asked to donate gifts to the competition.
Larry and Harry of course wanted to show their generosity.Also they wanted to please fans,who had travelled to Copenhagen in order to see or even meet these two celebs.Therefor they decided to donate some distinguish piece of art.
As you can see on the photo,love and happiness were spread to the winners,who won the two copies of the tight and famous butts of Larry and Harry.
Congrats,you lucky winners!

Toronto Bites Our Bullitt


Thanks to Kate for this photo from Toronto!

"Good tidings from Toronto. I just thought I would send you a photo of this sexy red Bullitt parked in Canada's only Bicycle Station! It is a frequent parker here, can't wait until we see more of its kind!"
