New tyres!

Last week my new tyres arrived, Vittoria Randonneur’s, and after pretty long struggle with much effort from both me and Dad, they were on the rims. First ride proved inconclusive as I had pinched the rear tube under the tyre bead, but once this was rectified it was all systems go! They roll much quicker than my previous tyres, schwalbe marathon plus, this is probably due tot he fact that they are a smaller 28c than the Schwalbes.

The sorry looking wreck below is what was my messing about in the garden bike, but since the chain refuses to stay on it is now slumped in the bushes!

New header!

Ok here it is the pretty much final version of the header complete with my new logo!

Drew the cogera on Inkscape, then put it into GIMP to put onto the image, looks pretty good I think…

new header + logo

As you can probably see above I have been testing out some idea’s for a new header and logo, the current ones are just quick mock ups to check the fit with the wordpress header box, but i will do some high-res ones tomorrow on photochop hopefully.

update!!

ok here’s the deal
my mountain bike got pinched by some thieving scumbag
and my fixed gear is out of action because the tyres are basically about to die – so i can’t ride that until some new ones arrive, probably going to go for Viatora Randoneurs…

so due to this i am currently bikeless save for a little kids bike that i mess about on in the back yard, so there has been very little action on the bike front.

but i thought i’d list some blogs that i check-out most days…
