Act Like You Know

Just so you know - I'm now working out of Sargent & Co on Sundays and Mondays, Sunday and Tuesdays or Sunday Monday and Tuesdays. This will be confirmed.

Sargent & Co is no doubt one of the finest bike shops in London, nay the entire UK. Particularly because it deals exclusively with steel framed, hand built bicycles, mainly of the vintage variety. 
Full workshop facilities cover simple services and repairs to total rebuilds and restorations. Rob Sargent's knowledge is vast so drop in and let your jaw drop as you check out this 'treasure trove' of vintage - British, Italian, etc - frames and complete bikes. 

No doubt you will be walking out with that christmas present you promised yourself this year. Yes, I mentioned christmas before December.

Been digging through a load of stuff I've had in storage - bottle cages, handlebars, wheels, weird cranks and also some screen prints have revealed themselves. There is another not shown but you get the idea...

Excuse the inexcusable photos of the prints - they do not do them justice. They are rad.

All are hand-pulled and printed on carefully selected paper to suit the images. Where possible, recycled papers have been used and all of our inks are non-toxic and water based.

its been a while

A very nice hand built mid 80's vintage track bike with a kind of French flag inspired finish - original red to white to blue fade paint. Suspected Columbus tubing with a Reynolds 501 chrome fork. Lovely long pointed lugs with heart shaped cutouts, shot in seat stays. A few marks but looks brilliant - straight, strong, and very very light...

Nothing Crazy Autumn Winter '11.

Trainer / Fast Commute Road Bike. Its a Raleigh. Its Reynolds 501 throughout. It has Gatorskin Tyres. It has full SKS mudguards. It is quick. It is light. It has hideous / sick paintwork. It has Biopace Cranks.

Take it for a ride. Like these guys. Into the sunset. Etc. 
Thanks Luke @ Heretic.

Hackney to Richmond Park Loop.
Just a quick one! Once you get to Richmond Park you explore or just enjoy some calm and quiet. There are a few places for 'refreshments' or do what I do and fill up your 'bidon' with Tia Maria and Coke well in advance. Best to do this early on the weekend otherwise traffic is just far too annoying.

Richmond is pretty nice this time of year - not captured in any way in any of these images.

Believed to be Roberto Benigni's cousin's mates bike (previous owner can confirm this) and ridden to victory on numerous occasions in the Italian track league throughout the early eighties. This newly acquired Barchelli frame has just been built up using a mismatch of components. Many countries wares are represented in the build; Reynolds, Rolls, Stronglight, Thomson, Miche and even good old Weinmann. Not forgetting Ireland through use of a Guinness can shim.

Anyway its a new whip so gonna go test ride.
