The beginnings of Bespoke

Although Bespoke Bristol is still a few months away, it's right in the forefront of our minds. Show bikes take a LOT of work for both our frame builders and ourselves... here's a little sneaky peak of what Tony is working on for us over at Tonic Fab.

Cycle fit training

I've been away at Trek HQ over the last couple of days getting trained in the science (or art) of bike fitting! A wonderful course headed by Phil from Cyclefit, one of the premier instructors in the country. More to come on this one....

Morvelo Presents City Cross


Morvélo launches CityCross this March 3rd. A new type of urban bicycle race.


Ever since Morvélo produced their popular urban cross race film, 'Ride Everything', they've been determined to host a race that captures that same spirit. Finally that moment has come with CityCross.

CityCross is a unique style of cyclocross race set around a listed and beautifully decaying abandoned mill in central Halifax.

Doing away with the traditional cyclocross format, CityCross will be run over a series of Motos. The top 50% of each Moto will qualify for the Semi Finals. The top 50% of the Semis will be rewarded with a race in the Final. Each race will be a 30 minute blast around a course that will comprise of manmade obstacles, multiple lines, rubble heaps, barriers and more. Testing skills and speed in races that mix up superb close racing with some good old fashioned fun. Much like how you used to race your friends around the streets and woods on BMXs taking in all manner of detours and obstacles. 

There will be races for Under 12's, Youths, Juniors, Women Only, Novices, Seniors and Vets, all taking in the traditional race route through the beer tent (supplied by Dark Star Brew Co.) and cowbell alley. A wide range of catering will be available including the obligatory frites, but also Hog Roast and even Sushi as well as lots of great brands showing their latest range of goods. The spectating will be as much fun as the racing!

They already have a great list of sponsors supporting the event which is capturing the imagination of everyone who simply loves to thrash a bike around. Whether you're a seasoned cyclocross racer looking for one last race, someone who wants to give their 29er some new terrain to chew over or a road rider looking for some off-road fun. CityCross is for you no matter what your ability.

Check out www.citycross.co.uk for more information and daily updates.
Also using the hastag #CityCross on Twitter get get your finger really on the pulse.

London Bike Show Photo Set at 5th Floor




Great photo set with more photos over at the 5th Floor site. Marcus is going to need new kit. 




 

London Bike Show Track Crit


This was a crazy little crit held indoors at the Excel Center. The surface of the course was polished concrete with sand glued to the surface of the track on the tight corners for added friction. Team rider Marcus kept with Hunt winner, Italian and all round strong man Francesco Martucci on the break for a second place finish. Congratulations Marcus and Francesco.

Canondale Team Launch



I'm looking forward to watching the exploits of the new team Canondale in 2013. We will have a little "stake" in team Canondale this year as we will be becoming a stockist so hopefully their team will be making their kit look very desirable with plenty of skids (1.48), wheelies (1.40) and maybe some wins.

Greetings from Tokyo




Here are some updates from my Tokyo trip. Because of New Years holidays and everything being closed I'v not got to any bike shops yet but I did catch a few classic Tokyo rides while out strolling in Shibuya today. Next week I should have some better stuff to post as I'll be visiting frame builders and other suppliers. More photos here.
