My flip fixed bike....

I have finally completed some modifications to my Specialized road bike. I am not confident yet in the fixed gear mode so I have a flip wheel so I can get used to it and brakes!! I know but I need to get the legs stronger before I take off the brakes. Like a new bike with stabilizers when your young on your first bike!

Brooks Saddles

Just got myself a saddle for my fixed gear bike that I am learning to ride. Could not resist this traditional Brooks saddle. Its hard to find quality craftsmanship but this company have stayed the same since 1866. You should check out the website. You can actually download old catalogues dating back 1899. Very nice illustrations and history.

A few days in the snow









I have just come back from a few days in Meribel in the French Alps. Sunshine was beating down and the Rose was flowing which was probably why my good friend Marc broke his shoulder!

Freaks.....
