Just picked a new bike up from Tim last week, 3 rides in and I’m loving it, and its official now, I’m old, I like riding slowly and for a long way

Drop bars on chunky tyres are the future, well my future anyhow 🙂

Bespoked Bristol

Just had a great weekend with Tim at Bespoked Bristol, its a bike show for the sort of people who Sideways serve, all the (very) pretty left field stuff that the big boys would love to be able to use on their bikes 🙂

3 days standing and talking about bikes on what turned out to be the best weather weekend of the year! The sheer variety and artistry of what was on display made up for this though, some very radical ideas being built, lots of fine working of traditional ideas and, of course there was beer to keep us going, we caught up with old friends including some of the shop regulars, made some new friends and expalined the point of fat bikes approximatly 1476 times 🙂

If you get chance to go to next years show then do so, its highly recommended.
