Thanks to everyone who came to the Brooklyn Brewery the other night and bought some of our stuff.
You can see The Rims modeling their awesome t-shirts below. We’re selling them for $15 a pop, so contact me if interested in the comments section. They are very awesome and silk-screened by us (with the help of Jared of Econo-Graphics). More pics from the event (thanks to Bacilio).

Welcome to the world of The Rims. We’ll be posting info on the many fundraisers we’ll be throwing to support Braking the Cycle. A little bit of back story:
The Rims (Jeffrey, Michael, Philip and Tina) formed after Tina learned about Braking the Cycle – an organization that holds a 275 mile bike ride (from Gettysburg, PA to NYC) with 140 riders who must fundraise at least $3,500 to ride. ALL of the money goes to The LGBT Center in Manhattan in order to support their HIV/AIDS Programs. Why would we want to put ourselves through 275 miles of possible pain? Easy. People still suffer from HIV/AIDS. There is no cure. Programs that The Center offers help those who need medicine, support, counseling and knowledge. 275 miles is a breeze. The hard part is raising the money. You can donate directly here and also attend the awesome events we’re planning for the summer. Below is a great video from last year’s ride. Check it out to see why this ride is so important.
