Hanging tough with Benny Zenga

I00Q1203edit

We were so pleased that Benny Zenga made it down to see us in Bristol a couple of weeks back. Pictured above left on the BIG tallbike, he was the raddest dude we’ve met in a while. We’ve wanted to meet Benny in person ever since the fantastic piece he wrote about Tallbikes for issue #11 of boneshaker.

Benny’s tallbike is cunningly constructed so that it can be disassembled into a normal-sized bike box – he’d actually carried that towering beast over from Canada with him! It is a thing of beauty, a touring bike with attitude (well altitude, anyway).  Check out the Zenga Brothers site. The film below, Ski Boys, is a favourite of mine.

We’re pleased to say that Benny will be writing again for issue #14 of boneshaker. In the meantime, check out more of his amazing work here…
