Kinoko Closing Down

leave a comment »

20140717-144915-53355047.jpg

I can still remember doing a blog about kinoko cycles opening and I’m sad to say I’m doing a blog about it closing down! The shop was so amazing it was big and had everything that you need, but to be on a level I kinda miss Tokyo fixed that’s where I got all my parts for my first ever fixed bike and the people there are awesome. Hope everything for them goes well and I know it’s not the last time you hear from them.
Guys and girls of Kinoko cycles thank you for your service!
The sale starts Monday! Head down there for some good low prices on bike stuff.

More info here.
The announcement.
With a heavy heart we have made the tough decision to close our Golden Square Shop. The date of the closure will be August 29. The business has seen a lot of changes over the last few years and unfortunately the move to a much larger space added complications we felt we just couldn’t overcome. We would like to thank everyone who visited our shop and all the customers who put their trust in us to build their dream bikes. We’ve had an amazing time at Golden Square and are very proud of everything we achieved.

Moving forward we will be putting all our efforts into our web site. We will continue to seek out brands, we will continue to work on features, photography and work on projects with talented designers. This will always be a part of what we do.

We’ve had a lot of questions recently about our range plan moving forward. Next season there will definitely be a emphasis on building our performance and casual clothing range but we will still continue to stock hard to find frames and components. We will be discontinuing our complete bike range.

Next season to name a few we will be seeing big new drops from Tokyo Fixed, Mission Workshop and Search & State. We will be welcoming back old friends such as Nari Furi and the Japanese line of Wild Things. And we will be greeting lots of new brands such as Attaqeur and Kletterworks. Please stay with us!

With the closing down of a shop comes discounts. Our sale will be massive. The majority of our sale will be in store only. The sale will be starting next week. More to come on this.

We are aiming to get all custom builds out of the store before we close. For the few projects which will not be complete be Aug 29 we will happily transfer the build onto a bike shop of your choosing.

After shop closure all Kinoko Vouchers will be honoured online only.

Ride Somewhere

leave a comment »

Had a free time today, so I took advantaged and got on to my bike and rode somewhere. Weather was so awesome had so much fun going around London. Grabbed some lunch with some mates at Five guys in Covent Garden, then went up north to have a wonder around Emirates stadium and check out the new kit. Yes, I am an Arsenal supporter.
It’s all about having fun on your bike!

So today me and Moses went out for a little ride. Having a family takes your free time, so today I had that free time. So I hit the London roads and to enjoy the sun. Had so much fun riding and chilling with Moses, I’ve missed riding in rush hours!

Good Morning Ride

Today has to be one of my best ride in the morning. It was amazing the weather was so good, wearing my dickies shorts and my chill out tee done by Ty. Showing my body heat to everyone!

20140516-110804.jpg

As family comes first I don’t ride often, but when I do I make sure to go out there and have fun. Explore London and see new things, as summer comes near I hope to see you guys and girls out there. Feel free to say hi to me when you see me riding. I don’t bite, only if you have food with you!

The Easter Hunt Edit

leave a comment »

Here’s something I’ve put together.

 

Highlights Of The Easter Hunt

leave a comment »

It was cold & wet but the show went on.  Thanks to those who turned up for the Easter hunt especially the volunteers, it was great fun in the end.  Big thanks to the sponsors too.  Pestle and Mortar, Chrome industries, 14 Bike co & Continental Tires.

14 signed up, half chickened out  due to the grim weather but it was still a great little challenge! It’s always a bother riding in the rain but once you’ve warmed up & you’re with a good bunch of riders the mood quickly lightens up.  The first checkpoint/meeting place was the inner circle in Regents Park.  Everybody was cold.

We kept our legs moving as we had a reconnaissance of the checkpoints while dropping off our helpers at the checkpoints.

A massive thank you to the helpers from the checkpoints:

1. Ryan and Jake.

2. Michael and Indra.

3. Mike and Sam.

4. Rob and Glenn.

Finish Check point. Mikey and Lettie.

Once everyone assembled, and instructions were read out, Mikey screamed starters orders & the fun began.

We cycled through wind and rain, but luckily it was Easter Sunday so traffic was light. At each checkpoint our riders collected an Easter egg, containing a map, showing where the next checkpoint was.  First to collect 4 eggs won.

The last checkpoint was Battersea park where Mikey & Lettie waited for the winner under Buddha with the prizes & drinks.

Been trying to ride my Koga bike but with the wind blowing like mad it’s been hard times. But today I had a chance to take out for a spin, enjoying the chilled ride into central. Love this frame need to make it more lighter on weight and have a low profile rims. What you guys think?
