I first see this a couple of weeks ago on the Bicycle Union site and really liked it, so you may have seen it already but I definitely thought it was worth posting. I love the way its filmed and Robbos style is always good.
Just a quick browse around the internet can bring up some really inspiring ideas of what to do with those old bike bits you’ve got knocking around. Take a look at the below and sharpen your hacksaw…
Who needs Ikea when you can have…..Bike-ia!

Welcome to the team edit from Luke for Almond Shoes.
This is what Ted has to say – “This is a short film by Mike Chick about the craftmanship behind building a bike. This was my first stainless steel frame build and was early days of Tig welding so when i had Mike who the bike is for following me at every step you can imagine that it was a little stressful. I am happy with how the frame came out and so is Mike, with everyone else involved in the build it has come together to be a very nice bike indeed. This video, the amazing photos and Mike’s enthusiastic stories of how it rides makes it all worthwhile.”
I heard a rumour that TJD is making BMX frames.
Bicycle Union riders Robbo and Jimmy hit up Posh and Catty Woods for some Autumn trail riding.
On Friday 27th July, 182 cyclists were held in a police kettle for two hours, handcuffed in buses for three hours, and held in a police cell from six hours to two days. These included a 13 year old boy. Police also confirmed the cyclists reports that CS gas was used during these arrests.
Out of 182 cyclists, only 3 have been charged with any offence. However, ALL have bail conditions imposed on them until September 18th 2012 restricting their freedom to move, assmeble, associate and live their lives.
We have the following demands:
1. All bail conditions should be discharged
2. All data including DNA, fingerprint, addresses etc taken from those cyclists should be removed from all paper and comupter records of police & other agencies.
3. An independent review of the police behaviour on Friday 27th July should be conducted as a matter of urgency.
All this for continuing the 18 year tradition of a bike ride through the streets of London on the last Friday of every month.
This political policing to crush dissent and restrict peoples rights without charge must be stoppped. Help us stand for a police and legal system which we can believe in, sign our petition today.
