Shorter Transformation.

May 15, 2011


To this:

It was pretty rad before but now, hot damn! I love these types of bikes. Where every part is selected or fabricated to be the lightest or stiffest in the goal of making the machine as fast as possible.

Peep the whole build right here.

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!

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.
