Robin Mather Interview at Headset Press




Robin Mather is widely regarded as one of the UK's best frame builders but I'v got to admit I know very little about him and have seen very few of his bikes. 
You can read a great interview with Robin at the Headset Press blog

Ed Scoble and Daniel Ames Riding a Triple Century for Charity

"To get a rough idea of what is involved, the preliminary route is 330 miles and includes over 20,000 feet of uphill.  During a normal 100mi ride, I tend to burn about 1,000 calories an hour which means that if I manage to string three slow centuries together, I will end up burning approximately 20,000 calories during the 20 or so hours I will be riding.  The average male tends to burn about 2,000 calories in 24 hours.  This is roughly the equivalent of 25 Large Big Mac meals..."

New Paul Circle Cranks and Tall and Handsome Seat Post



The Circle Chainring is a great addition to the Paul cranks, some would call it the grown up version of the Royal Flash cranks. The Tall and Handsome Seat Post is also a great addition. Its tough with plenty of setback. Now you can run all component Paul except for the stem. If only Paul made a stem, we can dream... 


 

More on Philosophy Bags - Review at Lovely Bicycles



The Lovely Bicycles blog have done a thorough review of the Philosophy Panniers, view it HERE



 

New In - Philosophy Bag Co Paniers and Bags









We first saw Philosophy Bags Co out at NAHBS. I was struck not only by the quality of the design but by the quality of the product and the fact that all the bags are proudly made ethically as possible in the USA. 
These tight weave canvas bags keep the weather out and the dirt and grease from sticking, the leather straps and steel hardware give the bags a classic look complimenting any bike you mount them on. 
The Morrison Backback (£150) and the Crosstown Messenger bag (£120) are exactly the bags we've been looking for. A genuine vintage look with features seen more commonly on new bags such as a laptop sleeve and padded straps. Also far cheaper than high fashion counterparts. Enjoy!  

View the bags HERE

We appreciate craftsmanship and have immense admiration for the processes, materials, and skill that transform everyday materials into something special. Sadly, much of this tradition has been abandoned.
   Today’s goods are designed around mass production constraints. While this often yields low production costs, it is always a sacrifice in form, function, and often has detrimental social and environmental implications.
   It is our mission to revive craftsmanship, preserve its traditions, and contribute to its advancement the best we know how. “The fruit of craftsmanship is plentiful, it employs passionate people and yields products that radiate the positive energy employed to make them”. We build our products for those who see value in such efforts.

Team Rider Tim's S1




Tim's been working as a messenger in London going on seven months now and is proving himself as one of the fastest riders out there. Thats why we've got Tim on the S1. And after his first day he was very happy commenting the bike "Feels so fast!". Tim moved some of the parts on from his previous build such as the super mighty crank and upgraded a few bits also. Its good to see our bikes getting out onto the road but this is just the beginning. Tokyo Fixed bikes will be with us in a matter of days.

Bespoke Bristol - Just Got Home


Well, Bespoked Bristol was a blast. It was so great to meet everyone and generally get together.  Everyone who exhibited brought some amazing bikes especially Lee Cooper, Ricky Feather, Donhue Cycles & Demon Frameworks all of whom pulled in top honers. And some how we received Best Road Bike on behalf of Shin-Ichi for his Cherubim Piuma (One of the judges was lucky enough to test the bike a few weeks earlier). An amazing show, a big thanks to Phil Taylor for putting it all together and I'v got such high hopes for next year which is already lined up to be held in a far larger venue!  


For full photo coverage check out Bike Radar.
