Oops

Someone had a sticky brake. Housing poking through the body and touching the lever.  We need to get him off his TT bike and back on his MTB soon.

To a sticky tube, its a length of cane of around 5mm in diameter.  Somehow worked its way completely through the tyre to be out of site from the outside.  Surprise!!!

We got treats

Flat white and brownie today an
excited customer got us brownie in exchange for a coffee.

Afternoon tea

Flat whites and biscotti, totally normal for a workshop right?

Confessions of a Head Tube Addict

While some of the new age hide themselves under the past quality of the head tube badge they wear, the old guard earned a name for themselves through the years of being ridden on city streets, country lanes, gravel roads and more.  All the while being required to perform in all the conditions to be thrown at them heat, wind, rain, hail (some times of bullets) and snow.  More about function and need, than looks and speed.

To the ridden we salute you and are always welcome in our house.

Weathered and full of character

I know not a headtube badge.  It came with Campagnolo what can I say.

Gifted to us, but sadly not attached to the bike it comes from.

We get a few older gems in now and then of late a few more have rolled through the doors.
