Crowns & Owls

After a really strong couple of years in the film industry, Leeds based Brown Bread Films have now morphed into Crowns & Owls. Check out the new site and showreel here - well worth a look...


Saw this tee from UrbanCyclery up on Tracko - get yours here...

Wheel Animation

I'm not sure when this surfaced but its pretty clever - make sure you watch through the first minute to see the animation in full effect. Thanks for the heads up Nic (In Her Glory)

PEONFX from faz adhili on Vimeo.

Another one from Faz - this time for PEONFX - Nice work...

Chrome X Miller

New bag for your beer? This latest drop from the folks at Chrome might just be a solution...

Edinburgh to North Berwick

EFG November ride from David King on Vimeo.

Stoked to see this short from EFG up on Prolls - I used to go up to North Berwick with my folks as a kid - it's cool to see it again...

New Brother Cycles Build

The new Brother Cycles frame. Just thought I'd quickly share if you haven't already seen, you have to admit this is a dam nice frame and its un- drilled. Think the Brother guys are definitely heading in the right direction.

GF Smith Sample

Had a visitor to the studio where I work today from GF Smith - essentially the Cervelo of Paper. One of the samples was this book - and whilst it might not be too exciting for those who don't fantasise about paper and print, the sculpted embossing on the cover (you can see the reverse on the yellow image above) was one of the nicest applications of this I've seen in a while.

Restrap Horizontals

These shots just surfaced on the Restrap blog of the new(ish) Horizontals - I'm running these at the moment and they feel pretty rad - especially if you're accustomed to the support from traditional clips and straps.

Scoop here.

H Plus Son Archetype

Just spotted these new Hplus Son road rims up on pedal consumption. Love the logo application on these...

Hufnagel Parts Project

Not sure how I missed these shots but having just spotted them up on TokyoFG, I figured they were well worth a post. Hufnagel upping the ante with full custom parts. Trill.


Massive props to my boy Nate from Restrap for winning the runner up prize in the Northern Princes Trust Entrepreneur awards. Look how happy he is... More photos later.

Vans Syndicate Greg Hunt

Black and White. Nubuck and Waxed Canvas.

Newcastle Fixed

A little teaser of the upcoming short from our Northern Friends at NewcastleFixed. Good work lads - that leg over slam at the start looks killer!

Tweed Run NYC

Jen from BFF gave me a heads up on this feature on the export of the Tweed Run to NY. Expect to see more footage from the London RL Tweed Run in a few weeks...

Burn Em.

Now I know nothing about the credibility of these frames but this burnished clearcoat finish from Factory5 looks pretty fresh.

Full Windsor Mudguard

Now I'd love a full functional bike with fenders and all for the impending cold and wet season but the fact of the matter is, I can't afford one. These quick fix folding mudguards look like a half decent solution - think Joseph and Joseph chopping board - but for the back of your whip.

Available here - more stock soon...

Wet roads and leaves. Rings true the world over...
Great work on the new video in the series.

Coming Soon...

Deaf Pigeon Edit Coming Soon from Danny Cameron on Vimeo.

My lack of free time recently has resulted in a severe lack of posts - I'm hoping that this will be remedied soon! One of the posts I missed was the 'coming soon' video from the Preston lads over at DeafPigeon. Stoked...

Take a closer look...

The non-cyclist annotation is a little comical - click the image to enlarge...

Flaming Pigeon Race

Here's the next installment from the Deaf Pigeon crew, a good straight forward race A to B. This should be a banger so get yourselves there!

"Here it is, the next Deaf Pigeon event. Saturday 5th November. Meeting at Avenham Park hill (the steep one) from 5.30pm and aiming to get race underway for about 6.00pm.

The race will be straight to Preston Grasshoppers by anyway you see fit. Prizes will be courtesy of the awesome Knog! (http://www.knog.com.au/)It's going to be a darkish race, so bring some lights with you and some warmish clothes because the plan is it watch the Grasshoppers firework display when we get there.It's £5 to get into the display but it'll be free to race, you don't have to pay into Grasshoppers, but there will be food and stuff on inside, so it's up to you.Tell the non-racing folk, wives and girlfriends to meet us there, it'll be a fun night, guaranteed!Hopefully we'll see you all there."
