CAN YOU ADAM & EVE IT!
Your favorite neighborhood bike shop has made it into another of the capitals esteemed publications... not content with The Evening Standard claiming last summer we were ..."the coolest juicebar in London"... now Time Out have come a knockin' to check out our Square Mile coffees, the refreshing juices and our super slick bike services... BUT, and its a King Kong sized hold the front page but, the crazy fools think that we're over priced???
I know, we can't believe it either... they're havin' a bloody bubble ain't they? have you tried getting a puncture repair (while you wait) for a tenner* anywhere else? solicitors letter in the post... case closed...
*small print (I know its the same font size but this interface is from the 1850's)
Puncture repairs start at £10... ie hub gear / dutch bikes will cost more, but we'll tell you before we start work so don't panic!
CYCLING 4 SEEd
Bon Voyage to Michael & Marika who will be cycling over 1000 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats delivering workshops in schools and visiting community projects to celebrate and encourage creativity and sustainability education.
CycleLab are proud to have given a small (but hopefully helpful) hand to this project... If you know a school who might enjoy a free creative film-making session, teacher workshop on sustainability or if you would like more information please visit http://se-ed.co.uk/cycling4SEEd
We all like to hang out and sip a coffee and soak up some new information... here at CycleLab & JuiceBar we have a wee library of books & journals for you to check out and hopefully purchase (hey we gotta eat you know!)
First up... Boneshaker. One of the most beautiful bike mags out there... each one is chock full of illustrations and inspiring stories... gett'em while they're hot!
Secondly... The Park Tool "Big Blue Book", this is THE book to have if you intend to do any mechanical tweaks to your bike... its like a Haynes manual only this gives you info on just about every bike going! An invaluable addition to any household / shed and a fine accompaniment to our Park Tool School Courses.
A bargain at £24.99 (or £19.99 if you pass one of our courses!)
RITTE VAN VLAANDEREN VIDEOS
The guys over at Ritte love riding, racing and having a good time (just like us) and they now have a Vimeo channel for you to keep track of their antics... Looking good and having fun!
NB. Some of the videos contain swearing... if that offends you perhaps you'd be better off with a Specialized!
TAN LINE PREPARATIONS
Ok, so its January, and its cold and the sun is barely visible at noon but its time to start thinking about this seasons tan lines... here's a chart so you can track your progress courtesy of the lovely guys at Ritte!
I think I'm carrying over a vague 'march' from last year... time to get the masking tape out!
PS tan-in-a-can is cheating!
