Chrome introduce something a little more refined this Autumn : The London Transport Series, created from Herringbone and Nubuck leather with a victorian print interior with all the usual functionality you would expect from a Chrome product. These look pretty damn good - both the Yalta Rolltop and Buckle Messenger are available in the series - check them both out here...

LTS Skallycat

The LST crew know how to put on a good Alleycat so head over to Liverpool on the 29th October to sample some beers, racing and skallies.

Design guru Ron Arad has created some pretty inventive pieces throughout his career - I'm not entirely sold on the functionality of this one but it's interesting for sure. The sprung steel wheels are intended to make for a smooth ride, the faster you go, the smoother it feels but I can't imagine this feeling too good on wet tarmac. Is that an ESB he's used there?

Cavendish: World Champion!

Well, where shall I start.
History has been written today as Mark Cavendish brought home the World Champion's rainbow jersey for the first time since 1965 - the year it was worn by legendary British rider Tommy Simpson.
The ride itself was an absolute masterclass. Team GB obliterated the field, riding at the front of the peloton for about 99% of the race. I've never seen anything like it. On paper the tactic was simple - ride like shitting hell to discourage/stop any attacks, lead out the missile, Cav finishes off. A tactic that's a lot easier on paper...
The part about riding like shitting hell, that worked, but with only few laps to go none other than the 2011 Break Away King Thomas Voekler piped up taking a few very decent riders with him. Groupe Voekler looked a bit of a threat until a certain Bradley Wiggins (who's he?) took the role upon himself of sitting right on the front for a WHOLE LAP to make the catch. It worked, but Wiggo had had it. Caput. After Wiggo's exit it seemed that all the other GB riders were getting swallowed up into the pack. Cav's chances weren't looking good. A few of the lads including our International Ambassador Geraint Thomas got back up for the lead out but Cav was completely boxed in siting in about 10th pleace. For most sprinters that would be game over. Cav is not any sprinter though and as he saw a slight gap beginning to emerge he finished off the job in the manner we're so used to seeing him do it in.
It was bike racing at its best.

It was not just a win for Cav though, it was also a massive win for British Cycling. Britain is now arguably one of the greatest cycling nations in the world. Dave Brailsford & Co are doing something very special up in Manchester. I think they're behind team Clonc...

Cinelli Mash Bolt

The grey Mash colourway always worked harder for me but this new 2012 offering is even better - looks rad with the full black black build up too. Not sure when these hit the UK yet but I'm betting they'll sell faster than the last colourways...

Northern Coffee Tour

The Northern Coffee tour heads out of Leeds this saturday at 8am - 140km through Manchester to Liverpool. It clashes with our event/Boiokzmoind prem but I know a few guys are talking about heading out for a few hours - check the LSF facebook if you fancy it...

Phil Cranks

To celebrate their 40th Anniversary Phil Wood are dropping some beasty angular cranks. I'd be stoked on these if the chainring was a little simpler but damn nice all the same.

Eurobike : Lazer Re-Up

It's not too often that a re-release of such an iconic product works well but Cinelli have got it pretty right with the 2012 Laser. Might be priced out of my budget at 7000 Euro but there are only ten worldwide - Integrated stem/bar would have been a nice touch but that seat cluster is the hotness...
