BLACK LABEL BIKE CLUB
Mutant Bike Organization
New York, Reno, New Orleans, Minneapolis, Austin
The Black Label Bike Club is an international freak/mutant bicycle organization specializing in tall bikes and choppers.
Started in 1992 by Jacob Houle and Per Hanson as the "Hard Times Bike Club" in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the club has grown to include a chapter in New York, Reno, Austin and a Nomad Chapter loosely based out of New Orleans known as "Nowhere".
The Black Label Bike Club are one of the main contributors to the rise of the tall bike culture and are credited with being the first "outlaw bicycle club", as well as the originators of tall bike jousting.
The club is explored in the 2005 movie "B.I.K.E." by two filmmakers.
