At the store we are stocking bone-shaker magazine.  It's a publication put together by a couple of the guys at Bristol Bike Project.  Stunning photography, illustrations and bike related articles.  This is issue #1, set to be quite an exciting project I think.  They are available to buy at various stockists in Bristol and London, but if you cant track one down they are also available to buy on their website.

There's a quote on the back cover from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle that reads: "When the spirts are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking."

new peddles

So I've been rather lame of late...not blogging.
Getting caught up in lots of random goings on...
  • went snowboarding in France
  • been to a few gigs
  • working on my accessories company
  • working in the shop
  • got mumps...or rather mump
  • went to a friends hindu/civil wedding
  • ...and (when I was back to full health after the mump) I've been riding
At the weekend I bought some new peddles.  My previous ones were a little bit small, I lost my footing every now and again.  So I got these Shimanos from 14 Bike Co.  Way more stable under foot, I kind of have a bit more umph to my stride!

Also the old peddles had a metal spike on them that kept catching on my trousers.  I know it is a design feature, but me and my trousers weren't getting on with it at all.
Hopefully I have now darned my last peddle inflicted hole!
