my name is Mike Merkenschlager, and I am 17 18 years old

I like to ride bikes, take photo’s, skate, draw and eat. I work for and am sponsored by 14bikeco – I run their blog and related accounts i.e. flickr, vimeo, twitter etc. I also am a part of and contribute to FixedGearLondon

Through 14bikeco I am associated with Dice&Dice, and they invited me to do a blog for them, so here it is. In this blog I will post about the happenings of 14bikeco & fixedgearlondon & affiliates, as well as being a dumping place for my photo’s, random experiences and escapades

I hope you enjoy it

    Hi, are you using wide-angle lenses or a mid range zoom lens?

    • mikeymerk

      I use a few different compacts, mostly fixed focal at around 30mm, but a couple of zoom 80’s
      widest lens is the 28mm on the ricoh gr1s
