Back to Grey

Chipps is back from his -9C skiing fun in Italy, but when’s the next jolly? He’s going to have to invent some more days in the year to get on one…

Statistics, swearing and those bloody ads again!

Swearing can be funny, stats are great but not when an insurance company gets hold of them to try and prove that cycling is dangerous and ads are here to stay and you need them as much as we do ultimately… No really!

Wheels-R-Us

In the continuing saga of “sorting out downstairs” I’ve been spending a great deal of time shinning myself on lots of random wheels that are littering the Singletrack offices. There seems to be something about wheels. No matter how useless or battered it may be, we cyclists seem loathe to throw a wheel away. And […]

Singletrack Workshop Refit

Our workshop isn’t in the neatest of states at the mo… So with this in mind we’ve just taken delivery of an “Action Station” from PAF Systems.

Reward

Explored a new (to me) Lakeland bridleway today. It turned out to be one of the best technical trails I’ve ever ridden. Better than the Snowdon Rangers Path? I think so. More details in a future issue of Singletrack. Awesome.

Without rhyme nor reason

I am really into mountain biking again. And when I say “really” it should say “REALLY”. Times 10. Tuesday night rides, thursday night rides, Saturday techno rides, Sunday social rides. All of it please. I think my mind/body/spirit has finally given up waiting for good weather to arrive and just wants to get on with […]

To singlespeed or not?

Business as usual

The forum post frequency is returning to its pre Christmas level now, which is reassuring and I reckon a big indication of a return to normal service is the number of posts involving passioned and often irate posts about tiny, insignificant issues. It feels to me that if we can all get really pissed off […]
