Here’s some questions to start this post off with some audience (you) participation: 1. Ever gone over the handlebars on a steep-ish descent because that fixed, high saddle behind you pushed you over (on purpose🤬!)? 2. Having trouble getting your leg over (a high saddle😬)? 3. Have you ever caught
The vintage bicycle market is DEAD! Long LIVE the vintage bicycle market!
Like a lot of people who are passionate about ‘vintage stuff’, I’ve been playing in the ‘vintage velo and Moto markets’ for quite some years as a buyer-seller-hobbyist-projecteer. This means, like a lot of people, and maybe you, I’ve had tremendous fun restoring, and riding, and selling, and buying vintage
Night ride ‘MOMENTS’
Definition of the word ‘Moment’: A very brief period of time OR if you’re into physics, it is a mathematical expression involving the product of a distance and physical quantity. Now we’ve got this definition out of the way, let me explain the relevance and context. I’ve got some MTB
The first ever ‘Retro-Bike Undergound’
So, what is/was Retro-Bike Underground? In a small North Yorkshire village hall in the UK, a group of like-minded cycling aficionados, who mostly hadn’t ever met before, came together one April evening to share their story about a specific bike that they had brought along. Each person had time to
Introducing the Workshop – Part 1

The Old and the New: A tale of two Swiss Mountain Passes??

Just like a YouTube video, but not?
Welcome to my first non-YouTube-video? Whilst this blog is going well with good reader feedback, I’ve been considering complementing it with a YouTube channel, partly because it brings a different energy to what I’m doing and creating, and partly because I’ve been inspired by many of those people already doing
Technique is everything
Our garden in Switzerland is mostly grass and trees, and is on about a 45 degree slope. We manage it quite naturally, and just like most of the Swiss farmers manage their mountain meadows. This means that we just let the grass and wild flowers grow until about mid-June and
The Golden Age of……..
How many times have you heard someone claim that a certain thing or subject was indeed, the Golden Age of…..etc etc? I heard it said the other day. Someone was referring to the golden age of music when the recording of music in studios was on magnetic tape. He went
