Flying Scot.

January 11, 2011

Adding the final touches to a Flying Scot frame before painting. Behind the doors of the glittering front of their Murray Street shop, Rattray’s framebuilders worked their magic in these dark atmospheric surroundings.

Such an amazing photograph, for lovers of the Flying Scot.

Cinelli x Mash.

September 27, 2010

Sure, it’s pretty nice and there is no doubt that kids everywhere want one of these 2011 Cinelli x Mash track framesets, but considering the amount of geared road and cross riding the Mash fellas’ do these days isn’t it about time that Cinelli introduced a Mash road frameset?

Mash! Cinelli! If you are reading this, get it done… The following will do, matte black, thanks.

Trench Foot.

September 27, 2010

It took a few more strides before the realisation hit my frozen brain that I was now running without a left shoe. Attempting to retrieve it involved submerging in filthy, icy water, my neck craning to avoid drowning while hands aimlessly groped in the gloop. The prospect of Wiltshire County’s coronor having to hold an inquest into some damn fool kid dying because he so badly wanted a dog-eared leather shoe back was a distinct possibility at this point. I retired from cyclo-cross racing there and then.

Nice bit of writing to be found over at the Rapha blog about the pain and perils of cyclo-cross. Only Hard men need apply. Guess that’s me then.

Hills and Trenches. Go peep.

Rapha Cross Gear.

September 27, 2010

The start of the cyclocross season is upon us and Rapha have refined and developed cross products to help you charge through the field quickly and comfortably. The Cross Jersey and 3/4 Bibs use performance fabrics and rider-specific features and sport the tricolour of the Rapha-Focus cyclocross team, who will do battle in North America this coming season.

Awesome cyclo cross collection here from Rapha and I must say I am completely loving the colour palette. If only I had the Umbrella today.

Ever since attending the National Cyclo cross Championships early this year in a windy, sodden Sutton Park I have been intrigued. That said, spending more money on yet another bike will not be permitted by the other half so I should stop thinking about it.

Seek.
