  • Yup. Sure thing.

  • Got a chrome back pack, only half hipster.

  • Another one bites the dust... 😬

  • Quite excited! The internet and TV star @Bobbiego has my TCX frameset hanging up in his studio awaiting it's allotted time for some paint love.

    I really liked the 'eggshell' TCX , but by the time I could get one, they brought out a new colour scheme. The new colours were by chance the Grupetto colours, so I had to get one! Despite the great colours, I never warmed to the design, so it is now with Bobby to make it great.

    Want to keep it Grupetto and fun. More to follow.

  • And retrospectively, Banana Bob.

    I have been commuting on my Kinesis GF Ti. It is a lovely frameset and made a good ride, but I had two issues:

    1) It killed my upper back. Ok for the commute, but anything longer and it was too painful. It think it was a tad too long my inflexible mamil self. Even with the commute it caused issues.
    2) I kept lusting after old steel frames, in a battered, jaunty, commuter style. Really missed my old Holdsworth that cracked.

    So I looked about for steel frames. Found a 53cm 'vintage' Bob Jackson for £100. Bought it and swapped the parts off the GF.

    So far loving it. It does lack clearance with guards, so am currency running 23c tyres again, but am hoping I can get 25c under there when spring arrives (which it seems to have done already!)

  • I’ve fitted some Swiss Stops to the Brompton. Exciting times.
