The Milk Race. 1982.

I cannot stress enough how good this film is!

Twenty-five minutes of great, well shot british cycling footage. The soundtrack is awful but I suppose it makes a nice change from dubstep or eurotrance. The narration is pretty good too.

Legends of TT in Photographs.

November 25, 2010

So, I have not long gotten my grubby mitts on the TT frame I have been seeking for a good few months, and while hunting around this massive web of goodness, for inspiration on a somewhat ‘period correct’ build, I came across this super and smashing forum thread of pure appreciation for the golden era of British Time Trialling.

As many black and white and colour photograph scans that one could ever wish for. Seriously, page after page of sloping top tubes, drilled out brake levers, skin suits, 24″ front wheels, the lot.

A big thanks to all the contributors of said thread, your photographs are nothing short of amazing!

Designed to complement the British Country Jersey, the GB Cap is made from a soft, lightweight technical cotton. Featuring a Union Jack-style stripe down the centre, it is highly water resistant, windproof and extremely breathable. The cap is finished with colour-on-colour Rapha logos and the inside is lined with moisture-wicking anti-bacterial tape. A thick elastic fastener holds the cap in place and the cap has a low enough profile to be worn under a helmet. The cap can be folded into a jersey pocket when not needed.

Christ, we could not get away with this now in 2010, absolutely no way! Brilliantly visionary for the time though.

Taken from the book Death on the Streets – Cars and the mythology of road safety.

I must say these British hand made frames by Feather are looking great.

I have said it before and I will say it again, it’s great to see folks prosper from good wholesome quality products and I wish Feather cycles all the best of luck for the future.

Stussy x Brooks Swallow saddle
styled by the Wilson brothers

Founded in 1866, renowned English bike saddle-maker Brooks has teamed up with The Wilson Brothers to produce an exclusive 125 piece limited run of their Swallow Saddle for Stussy. The all-white leather is a first for Brooks, Studio Oscar’s unique graphics on the packaging reflect the swallow-back frame, and contribute to making this saddle a true work of art.
