Freebie(s) of the Week (Yes, there are two!) 1) Like Levi's? Like bikes? Like free stuff? This coming Tuesday hit up Levi's Commuter Bike Shop (RSVP!) at Empire Control Room, featuring live music from This Will Destroy You and Holy Wave. Not only will they valet your two-wheeled ride, but you'll also get free rad services such as bike tune-ups, repairs, and washes. AND we're giving away a pair of the new Levi's Commuter jeans to the person who tweets the best answer to this eternal question: Fixed-gear bikes... love them, hate them, or really hate them
