We have seen the arrival and departure of too many riders to mention - as the college terms change, the people you ride with do too. With Will travelling around Oz and Max returning to the warmer climates of London, I've lost two of my favourite riding/drinking buddies but stir-friday, the LSF clubhouse and the rest of the crew have kept things going...
Lots in the pipeline for 2011. The Ginnel Whippet Roller-racing will return in late january - come down and try and outspin our first victor; Tez. Hopefully Leeds will have some rideable roads by this time so we can get some winter rides in too. There will be another alleycat in the spring - possibly a multi event day like pentapista - and I'm pretty sure the first prize for this is going to be very special. Thanks to everyone who supported the Leeds scene this year - both sponsors and riders - roll on 2011.

I'm pretty sure gout is kicking in after a day of only drinking port and ale yesterday - straight up Henry VIII style consumption going down. Tom showed me this video from Welcome this morning - Leeds based and showcasing some familiar faces and places. Certainly worth a watch.

Tokyo Fixed Gear for £50
I read about this project by Argentinian based studio, Place over at SFGFC. Saddle graphics are something that seem to have gone downhill since the greats by San Marco and Selle Italia. This Re-up by Place does a great job in recognising the heritage in the designs whilst pushing them into a new era.

14BikeCo have been hyping the Greifmasters tournament for a while, and for good reason. Each national squad (including London's famous London?) is represented by an illustration. France and Spain are the first to have the graphics up on the site and they look amazing! I wonder what symbol they'll use for England - any suggestions?
