Monotonous Mr. Blue Sky...

The day started with glorious sunshine again. The plan was to get a few more pictures but we had to make it a short one due to the stupid amount of miles we've smashed out in the last 2 weeks, which have started to take their tole. Hence the lack of pictures... We're planning to go for a spin again tomorrow, so if you're getting itchy feet we are meeting at co-op in summertown at about 1! 

Peace.

Pedal Mafia x Yamato Toys

These came out in 2008 but I thought they were good fun. Yamato Toys and Pedal Mafia, the creators of their customizable bike website (here), have taken it one step further and come out with 1/9 models. They look really dope and you can buy new bits and everything! Check them out HERE, and to grab one, head over to TokyoFG they've got them in there store!

Peace.

LFGSS Online Shop!

David Kitchen (aka Velocio) from LFGSS sent out a huge email explaining that they have finally opened an online shop yesterday! The only issue everything is selling out real fast so if you want to grab a chainwip or cycling jersey you will need to hurry! Check it out HERE it looks really decent!

Bike Soccer...

My first thoughts on this were: "why don't they just get off their bikes and kick it" to be honest I'm not keen on the idea...what do you think?

The Build so far...

So as you have probably seen I am slowly but surely building my Grandis Paletti Pursuit. I have acquired quite a few bits but am on the look out still!
So far I have:
FIR rim laced to a Phil Wood high flange front track hub
Campagnolo Chorus BB
Rear Phil Wood low flange track hub
Aero seat post (unknown brand)
Campagnolo Chorus chainset
pair of BLB black leather double straps
pair of MKS fit alpha suede double straps
What I need: 
Chain (not sure what brand)
Stem (cinelli, nitto or GB)
Pedals (MKS)
Toe clips (MKS)
Rim (black H+son)
Seat (San Marco Concor)
Bars (don't know yet)
Hopefully it will be build up by this summer!

Peace.

Vans Pass the Bucket.

In the whole of this inspirational series (which you can watch here), this one stood out to me the most.
I know these videos have been floating around almost every blog but only because they're good.

Brother Cycles.

Yeah, I know I'm a bit late on this but I'm in the market for a lugged, more track-orientated geometry. I always had a bit of an interest in the Brother Cycles steel frame, as its a bargain at around £300, and I would be supporting the UK scene by investing in one. My only issues were the slightly gappy geometry and the brake drillings (I'm a purist... shut up) but I was looking at the prototype photos they released a few months back and I think it looks just lovely.


What do you guys think? If anyone has a Brother build I'd be happy to see pictures etc. to get more of a feel for this company as it seems like the most viable alternative to actually getting an old njs or pursuit, which are few and far between.


Peace.
