Paul ‘da Plumber’ Benefit Party this Sat.

Paul is an amazing bike artist. Here is a Make show featuring some of the great work he’s done over the years. This will be a fun party and a great way to help out one of our own!

WHAT: Cyclecide is throwing a benefit party for Paul to help with medical bills.
Bingo, houses made of meat wrecked by dogs in godzilla suits, ‘flu shots’, bean bag toss, we’ll have it all. No cover but donations at door and for beer and silly entertainment will be accepted.

WHEN: Saturday January 31st starting at 7pm and going until 11pm.

WHERE: 984 Folsom St, Second Floor — the MonkeyBrains office space.

WHY: Paul ‘da Plumber’ had major surgery on his right wrist, has it in traction, and will be out of work and unable to use it for several months. Paul — as you probably know — builds amazing bike powered rides and sculptures, and all sorts of silly devices.

YOUR MONEY: You can send donations to via paypal.

One inch of the ulna was removed, ground up and packed into the small bones in the back of the hand to reinforce the hand. A permanent metal sheathe was put into the wrist about the size of a butter knife and attached to the bones of hands and wrist with 7 surprising large full size bolts. They did a bunch of other things to his wrist that will hopefully minimize the constant pain he has experienced for years. Post Op photos:
