The Eddy files.

July 17, 2011

I have never seen such a massive collection of Eddy Merckx photographs and scans in one place, the grip is something else… There’s even a bunch of family photos up in there!

Unfortunately the owner has disabled the ability to download the files so I can’t show them here (screenshots come in handy mind you) but do yourself a favour and click through for 600% of Merckx goodness.

The Holy Grail…

of tyres.

I looked for a tyre with a deep tan wall for what seems an eternity and up until last week I had found and bought plenty but they were all rubbish to say the least. No puncture protection, heavy, slick and absolutely no good for british roads.

Well I now think I am onto a winner with these: The tan Schwalbe Lugano in 23c.

I have been riding these for a little over a week and so far so good. They look great with their high tan wall, have puncture protection, are grippy in corners and are not too heavy. Oh and they cost £12.50 each ( from here ). Bargain.

So if you are looking for the same as I was for your classic/retro build then look no further.
