Christmas time, Bike Gifts and Wine

According to Andy Williams ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’..obviously this statement is dependent on whole a host of factors…for those with an imminent visit to see their  dysfunctional family on the cards and a fear of turning on the heating since gas costs the same as liquid gold, it’s not a very wonderful time of the year is it?

Oh sod off will you

Well fear not people, we can help you prepare for the battle. I can’t get enough of Brasher 4 Season walking socks, these are the king of socks, guaranteed to keep your plates of meat nice and warm. Heating is for wusses.

As for dysfunctional families, I say if you can’t beat them, join ’em. If they think they are odd just wait till you turn up at the table with your new found tourettes condition.

And their is more…we have ideas…Christmas gift ideas…we are brimming with them….and since we are having a late night opening tomorrow night, you can come down, grab a free glass of wine, and peruse at your own pleasure…

Italian made Silca Pista Floor Pump - £40.00

Black Suede Double Toe Straps - £30

I have been riding with the same pair of these for over 18 months now and they are still in good nick (unlike my B.L.B ones that disintegrated in the rain- sorry, I don’t mean to bad mouth other peoples gear, but they did disintegrate!).

New old stock- Olmo Musette- all the way from Italy! - £15.00

Where to Ride London- super nice riding guide- £15.00

Brooks saddles, old and new!!! From £40.00...

Silca Tool bottle, handy bottle sized tub to pop your tools in, sweet - £5.00

We have more nice things on the way too…I can’t wait to get me mitts on some of the cork/bamboo bar ends we have got coming on..they are mint


Exhibition – The Herd

Tomorrow night is the grand opening of ‘The Herd’ exhibition…the Mechanical Alchemist himself has been in this week, hanging his show and it looks great…it turns out ‘The Herd’ have a few friends, including a tribal monkey mask sculpture and a rad lamp…

Oh I say what an interesting window display

We have had cold noses pressed up against the window all morning…their is a mob forming outside…I hope we don’t have to get the rozzers down…

Dalis' Sheep - £50

Grants' Gazelle - £45.00

White Tailed Gnu - £40.00

We have 9 Herd sculptures, 4 tribal sculptures and 1 lamp.

We have sold 2 of The Herd already and I reckon most of them will go tomorrow evening as they are magic. If you are around, please come and join us for a glass of wine and have a nosey at the exhibition…the pieces, although individual are not part of a limited run, so if you can’t get your hands on one this time, their will be more in the future….

See you tomorrow…
