haggle vinyl

leave a comment »

I’ve been working in Haggle Vinyl in Angel for some months now after being an intermittent customer over the last 4 years or so. It’s hands-down my favourite store, a real old london gem of an independent record shop. Run by a good friend Lynn Alexander, after 15 years of trading Haggle Vinyl is set to close its doors.

I took photos for those who haven’t had the pleasure of visiting in person – make it down before it shuts for good in December! Anyone that comes on a saturday with an FGL sticker on their bike gets special discounts!

Lynn wishes to thank all those who have helped the shop (not those who have helped themselves in the shop) over the last 15 years. Particular thanks to the customers who travel from across the globe and visit the store whose knowledge makes each day fascinating

Haggle Vinyl, 114 – 116 Essex Rd, Angel, London

Copenhagen bike messengers

leave a comment »

Signe of Woco Film sent over this video and it’s really nice, worth a watch. The video follows two Copenhagen bike messengers Fergie and Jumbo, talks a little about how bicycles and messengering have influenced and shaped their lives, and about the extended international community brought together through events like the cycle messenger world championships

Out With The Old, In With The New

leave a comment »

Had my Mission Work Shop (Vandal) bag for almost 4years, a solid bag and great to have. Been on holidays and carried my bike, also very good for food shopping!
But sad to say my zip on my main compartment gave up, but the good news is that it’s a life time warranty, for worn out bags or items. Gave them an email and now I have my new bag! So happy with the service that they gave me, especially from the other side from the pond.

There was some changes to the bag which I find awesome, but there was only one change that I didn’t like, nothing major, just the shoulder strap. I like to hang thing easily on it. But now that’s gone, it’s cool.
Will send back the old bag to you guys soon.
Thanks guys, you rock!

Checking over iPlayer I came across this odd 1 hour compilation of of vintage BFI bike footage, from a slowed-down old time version of ‘how it’s made’ to dramatic reenactments of bike-related memories. Apart from some ropey music there’s plenty of good/funny footage in here if you fancy (click the image to watch). Now I’m going to check the lance armstrong doc…

Tour de France London leg

Caught the London Leg of the Tour yesterday. Me, Mikey, Ryan & Richard managed to get down to the Mall to see the riders zoom past for a second. It was brief but you could feel the excitement all around. Here are some pictures:
