Nothing But A Good Baguette

leave a comment »

20140130-224949.jpg

This photo was taken by Andy of me eating the best baguette ever, after a long ride and not eating a proper food, having a big ham and cheese baguette is like a five star meal. I can still remember that moment when I look at this photo, the nice cold drink eating in the shades. Then when we got to Paris for almost 5 day’s I’ve been eating nothing but baguette. I was sick of it at some point but that was the only food I can get my hands on, the worst time was at night, some places closed so early and food was hard to get, riding all day around the city and the only thing you want at night was a good hot meal. But nope sometime me and Ren (my best mate who I was with at the same hotel room) had coke, crisp and a bar of chocolate. Also I remember one night we didn’t get back till 2am because we’ve been looking around for a place to eat.

There’s also a cool bike shop called the Bicycle Store Paris that has everything to do with any type of bike’s, also has all the clothing and accessories you need too, on top of that even a team jersey .  This is located on 17 boulevard du Temple, 75003 Paris. Simon and Alexander run the store, such awesome guys and if your in Paris you need to pass by you can’t miss it there are load’s of bike’s out side just all locked up.

Few words about an old video

leave a comment »

A quick article about the video “fixedgearlondon in Paris” :

Last year a group of 10 fixed gear riders from London planned a trip to Paris, to discover what the scene was around here.
For 3 days, we rode east to west and north to south everywhere in Paris… It was really cool to hang out all together, and get these guys to meet the “locals”.
I remember it was a cold and humid month, and it seems like it was such a long time ago, because so many things have happened since. To me it seemed obvious that this improvised trip needed to be on tape, so I grabbed my scooter and went for some filming… The outcome wasn’t meant to be a really fast and dangerous looking video; the purpose was to show people that riders actually started to travel with their bikes, the only purpose beeing “RIDING”.

Luis Davis

Luis hails from Paris, he’s a cycle polo pro, fixed gear fanatic and a ’spare time’ videographer. We had him fire in some words about the video above, like he mentions in his words and the same reason we dug it – it’s just dudes riding.

Cheers for the narrative Luis, stoked to have you on board this coming year as a product tester, look forward to many more shorts and the stories behind them – stoked!

Bicycle Film Festival Paris 2008 Polo Competition…

leave a comment »

The Polo competition was absolutely amazing. We had 7 hours of non stop rain as you will see on the pictures, but everyone managed to have loads of fun I think (I hope…)

I told your fellow players that the weather was kind of “eye for an eye…” in reference to the weather you had for the edition of the BFF in London.

Winners of the competition : (Drummmmmm roll )
Madison Team (USA)

A true lesson of bike polo should say.
