Bespoked

leave a comment »

Hi guys, Bespoked is on right now at the Olympic park velodrome in Stratford & it’s well worth a look.  Go say hi to Mikey  & the guys at the 14Bikeco stand.

Image

It runs until Sunday so get down there where you’ll get to see the amazing new range Andy designed, & Mikey too!

Image

There’s lots of cool stuff there & the venues amazing too, its the fastest velodrome in the world & you’re allowed to have a go – if you get accredited & don some lycra – watch out for those banks though, they’re pretty steep.Image

There are 29′ers, 36′ers, ridiculous chainrings & gold plated bamboo bikes, whatever you like (or don’t) it’s there so go check it out:

Lot’s of un-rideable showpieces there but some real gems too.  Makes a good day out for any bike nerd, here’s  some NJS & a BMX by Ted James:

Keep it fixed.

Back in 2010 this print was orginally put on a tee and got sold within mintues. So now it’s been made into a A3 poster, it’s hand screen printed and hand numbered to 50. Grab you’rs at The foot down web.FootDown

Saw this today and thought it was pretty nifty, heavy duty public bike pump installed on brick lane. Didn’t try it as I was à pied but if it works that’d be pretty cool. Now if there were just a few inner tube vending machines around…

Can’t believe my little girl is going to be 3 years old tomorrow 23/2. They just grow up so fast, by the time you know it they be moving out of your house. What I’ve found out not just the kids that learn things, us adult we also learn things. The way you think things and how you see the world. It’s hard to explain but I’m sure most dad’s that is reading this get what I mean. But this is one of the best feeling ever! Being a Dad.

Lotus 108

Lotus 108

I was at the science museum the other day and spotted this bike as part of Emily Pugh’s ‘Bicycle Tour’ installation. Amongst many examples from the museum’s collection of interesting and historic cycles, this is a replica example of the Olympic pursuit bicycle that set world records and enabled Chris Boardman’s gold medal at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics. Designed by Englishman Mike Burrows, this bike pushed competitive bicycle design, utilising a carbon composite monocoque in an advanced aerofoil cross-section construction (which I don’t pretend to understand but I’m sure it’s bad ass)

Anyway it was the only fixed gear bike they had on display (other than a couple of penny parthing types) and although it would be great to have more fixed gear bike design represented, this is a pretty cool bike
