Alan Shorter R.I.P.

November 19, 2010

I have just learned that Alan Shorter, founder of Shorter-Rochford passed away on the evening of the 9th November at the tender age of 92.

I do not very much about this man, I am not going to front. What I do know however is that he was a very forward thinking man in respect to the production of his frames and the aero advantages that could be gained there, with configurations, joining methods and of course, the lightening process by way of Drillium. He was also instrumental in coaching ‘The King’ Alf Engers to the TT record of 25 miles in under 50 minutes back in 1978.

His name and legacy will live on. Alan Shorter. Legend.

Keirin Goodness.

On a regular visit to go buy some Keirin frames the guys over at The Flying Helmet managed to gain access to the Racer’s locker room. Upon entry their eyes were presented with a world of Keirin goodness and a track bike lover’s garden of Eden.
