LSF Fresh Frames...




There's been an influx of new frames these last few weeks with the LSF riders and more to come. New frames means more riding. New 'shit' edit and photos coming soon...



Feather Friday's




From now on we're gonna start the weekend with a bang. Each week a new Feather frame will be featured on the blog from new to old.  Having followed Ricky on instagram for a while now it's quite clear how far he's come in frame building.  He continues to keep pushing the boundaries of detail and accuracy when building these stunning bikes...

Mindrome Edinburgh



Red Bull Mini Drome took the high road this weekend and headed to Scotland for its second outing of 2012 at Edinburgh's College of Art. Scotland welcomed the return of the world’s smallest velodrome this weekend as 32 of the world's top fixed gear riders competed to become the Red Bull Mini Drome Champion at Edinburgh’s College of Art. The event also introduced a female final, a first in Red Bull Mini Drome's history! The finals culminated with a tense round between Toms Alsberg from Latvia and local boy Martin Bletchley. Alsberg finished in first place and was crowned champion for the fourth time with Martin Betchley in second place and Ricky Crompton from Manchester in third.
