Custom Saddle by Ruben Bauer

June 30, 2011 | By | No Comments

A couple of months back I asked Ruben to create me a custom saddle that had a quilted pattern and I’ve stoked on what he produced.
Made out of heavy duty car leather (Which smells incredible) this saddle I personally think looks brilliant and I’m pretty damn sure I wont be ripping the leather on this, medical or the stitching for that matter.

Ruben is a super talented designer and really knows his stuff when it comes to material.
Be sure to check out his
flickr for more of his wonderful designs.

The Footdown Owl T-Shirt

June 29, 2011 | By | No Comments

Owls are so hoot right now. And so are bikes. So when I saw Ty’s new Footdown t-shirt land in my inbox, discount I got quite excited. A superb hand drawn picture of an owl stealing a pair of drop bars by Carly Davies, a very talon-ted artist.

Swoop one up now at the Footdown

In fact, don’t be a twit, order twoo!

Thanks for Matt, Jeff and Graeme for the pun contribution.

Castle to Castle coverage

June 27, 2011 | By | No Comments

Yesterday in the hottest day of the year so far here and we basked in it by riding to Windsor and back (for some). 29 riders set off from Elephant Castle en route t Windso Castle. It was great day culminating in a swim in the Thames. Thanks for all who came. As usual full coverage is over on our flickr. We’ve got some go-pro footage of the trip which will be edited and up soon.

2 UK Trick Edits

June 26, 2011 | By | No Comments

If I’m honest, patient there are a lot of shit trick edits on the interweb. Bunny hop this, oncologist 180 that, hemorrhoids bar spin, fakie, keo spin, jump down stairs. It always feels like 3 minutes of the same stuff on repeat.

These next 2 videos are different though. Yes, they have a lot of the same tricks but what makes them better than rest is some creative editing, perfect soundtrack and they’re both under 2 minutes long. Check ’em.

And yes, I know they’re on every other fixed gear blog and their Grandma’s but I feel they’re that good.
