DIY Bamboo Frames

And now for something completely different. When browsing Kickstarter one day, we came across a really neat looking Bamboo frame idea. Self build Bamboo frames with the box it’s sent in becoming the frame jig. I always fancied building one … Continue reading

I stumbled over this on t’internet. Not one of my bikes (it’s built by Motorless City Bike Co in Detroit) but I love it and good coffee. Might have to book a trip to Detroit!tomo-bike-large-681x482

Setup at Spin London Cycle Show 2015

May 8, 2015 by jon | Comments Off on Setup at Spin London Cycle Show 2015

All set-up completed last night, ready for the Spin London Urban Cycle Show this weekend.

This is my first show so should be interesting to get some feedback and hopefully drink some really good coffee. We ended squeezing 4 bikes onto the stand. My cyclocross bike, Lisy’s Mixte, my single(double) speed and the new 20 inch wheel bike.

I also finished a couple of bike frame stools as standing up for 3 days is probably going to be tiring. I added a rack to one of them so I has somewhere to put some business cards.

Spin London Cycle Show Stands

For the Spin London Cycle Show I needed to have some stands to show off the bikes. We did a bit of research at the Bespoked show in April to see what looked good. Having worked out how many bikes I can fit into (quite a small) stand we decided to have something to raise the bikes slightly off the ground and holds them in a stable way.

I also got the plasma cutter out to make a few Tomo signs.
