It’s weird how things happen in a sequence and seemingly unconnected, until one thing joins them all up. In this case, the ‘one thing’ is a catalogue from a Swiss company long since gone. My friend Stefan, who you made have read about before (see links at bottom of page),
The road to somewhere new……??
Ever heard the music track ‘Road to Nowhere’ by the band, Talking Heads? If not, you should. If you have, listen to it again. It’s a tenuous music link to the subject of this post, which involves 2 ebikes and 3 friends. However, I have an announcement to make first.
In addition to usual cycling brands, a lot of car companies have dipped their toes into the bicycle world. I assume this is to connect the car brand with a lifestyle of health, leisure, fitness and sport. Some also get their engineers to apply car developed technology to cycles. It
When I was a kid, teeth cleaning technique meant putting toothpaste on your brush and then vigorously brushing in an ‘up and down’ direction. Doing this correctly meant ‘no fillings and other work’ to be done at the dentist, which was never somewhere I ever wanted to visit in case
S’Bike Prototype – More research required……
Last November, I nailed a post to this site under the title ‘Rapid Prototype’. I had obtained an unknown frame from a friend who featured in ‘Interesting Interview No.1 – Terrance Malone’, and this special frame had no markings, serial number, or provenance. It gave some clues to it’s heritage
The Interesting Interview Series – No.7: Mick Ely

After previous interview mentions of the Rough-Stuff Fellowship (RSF), which is the oldest off-road cycling club in the world, I thought I would
More great MTB product testing?
Sometimes, there are contradictions and tensions in the message when talking about ‘new innovation’ and ‘heritage’ in the same sentence, unless you are a marketeer and you use heritage as ‘the hook’ for selling a new innovation. I’m using the two separately in this post, but both will be complimentary
The Interesting Interview Series – No.6: Stumpy
To date, the Interesting Interview Series has focussed on people and their lives. This interview is with a bike. All used bikes have good stories to tell, but they are never given the chance to get their adventures into print, so this could be a world first (maybe). The Specialized
The Interesting Interview Series – No.5: Jacquie Phelan
Welcome to ‘Interesting Interview’ No: 5 with some passionate and transparent words and thoughts of THE mountain biking legend, Jacquie Phelan. Our cycling and MTB industry continues to develop technologically and culturally at pace, and it is really important to understand where it all came from, and particularly from the pioneers that
Once a bedroom wall decorator, always a wall decorator?
Apparently, kids don’t put posters on their walls anymore. In fact, postering up your bedroom wall has been on the decline since we hit this century and today, it is only the few (about 7% of girls and 12% of boys) that actually get their super heroes stuck or taped
