Now, folks that know me will know that I am no stranger to building vintage bikes, in fact I can’t think of anything I enjoy more, however when my pal Len said he had a project for me to undertake I had no idea what was in store.

Knowing my love for and knowledge of the vintage bicycle he has asked me to build this, his recently acquired ebay purchase of a Colnago Master Crono.

He wanted me to build him a ‘fixie’ out of it. I, of course, said no, no way. The only way I would get involved was if he would agree to me building it up the way it was intended… A super fast geared time trial machine. So, after much banter and a phone call to the bank manager he said “OK”.

I have no idea how much it will cost ( not that it’s my hard earned that I’ll be spending ) or how long it will take, I am just happy he asked me because now I can’t wait to get started, but wait… Dude, where are the god damned forks?

Anyway, hold tight the disc wheel and full super record. Happy days.

Cinelli x Mash.

September 27, 2010

Sure, it’s pretty nice and there is no doubt that kids everywhere want one of these 2011 Cinelli x Mash track framesets, but considering the amount of geared road and cross riding the Mash fellas’ do these days isn’t it about time that Cinelli introduced a Mash road frameset?

Mash! Cinelli! If you are reading this, get it done… The following will do, matte black, thanks.

Looks like Max at TFG has been busy. Busy tapping away into Ebay because he recently managed to snag this absolute stunner of a TT bike off of there. Just look at that rear mech… You gotta love a bit of drillium! Gosh, jealous I am.

Like it? See more here.

Done Right.

Olympic Raleigh.

November 25, 2009

Loving this scan taken out of a magazine that’s title and date escapes me.

I do however have all of the scans of this making it a full readable article so if anyone wants to read about Steve Hegg’s $40.000 Olympic monster just shout me a holla and I will post… or maybe I’ll just email to you as they don’t really make great viewing, you know being a bunch of scanned words and all that!

Wow this is pretty dope.

So as I understand it the owner of this Rossin snapped the seat tube of said frame ( twice! ) and then proceeded to hand it over to his friend / framebuilder for a repair. A couple of track ends and a re-jig later and he now has a super nice Rossin pursuit complete with crimped aero tubing.

This is going to look great when painted for sure.

Is it me or does this look a bit strange… I mean, like what size will the front wheel be?

1989 Duell Track Pursuit.

July 20, 2009

Here it is, my most recent acquisition, a full columbus SLX 1989 Duell track pursuit frame in fantastic condition.

Built with what parts I had lying around it is now absolutely and perfectly rideable but I am still on the lookout for a few ‘choice’ parts… Namely a Steel, 65 degree drop variation of the Nitto ‘Jaguar’ stem, somesort of chrome aero seatpost and a set of decent cranks, oh and that white tyre has got to go! But for now I marinade and simply enjoy it.

It is a bit like riding permanently on the drops but the fact it takes a 700c up front makes it a little more forgiving on your wrists, thank goodness! The sheer tightness of the frame makes toe overlap a bit of an issue but not too much of a big deal, I mean it is not like I plan on doing barspins or anything! This thing is made to go fast in a straight line and that is what will continue to be done.

It has 25 days to go so if anyone wants to grip this absolute beauty, get saving and hit that button!


Simon’s Low Profile Shorter

January 7, 2009

I have met Simon only once and I must say what a fine chap he is.
He turned out to the X-Mass mini meet a few weeks back and managed
to stick around long enough for me to snap some pics of his steed.

He informed me that he managed to grip this bike off Ebay for something silly like £60 minus the later additions of the rear wheel and Turbo saddle.

Jesus! bargain anyone? sixty quid for the frame would be a hot deal, but the bike?

Props to you Simon, I thought I was pretty good at sourcing a bargain but this is the one. I feel sick.
