We don't make much use of it yet but our Yard can get pretty busy. Now all we need is a porch.

EHBPC 2009 sign-up.

Things to come.

We've build up this nice Diamant frame in the style (very loosely) of the French Porteur / messenger bikes.

Pretty happy with the result.

For sale in our shop now.

Top tube: 55 cm/cc
Seat tube: 52 cm/cc

Pretty OT

Ok so it's not about bikes this time, only about the best band from Holland (make that the world) at the moment. Aux Raus.

We've been waiting for this album ever since coming across their first album (This is how this works) in August of last year.

Some people will call them Eurotrash (some people even call me Eurotrash...) but you can listen to their
new album 'The brick is in the air' here and judge for yourself.

There's also a great live performance from the last Lowlands festival online here.

Frames we've sold

Earlier in the year Mick Peel aka busyman bicycles visited our shop looking for a track frame for his brother Ged, down under.

He settled for the RIH and after a couple of months they finally completed it, sick.

Make sure to check out Mick's blog for more pictures of the bike and to admire his great craft in reworking vintage saddles into custom one of's.
