    Hi Jason, did you get my email a week ago enquiring about the 15MBP Retina case?

    Or did it get lost in the interwebs?

    Thanks.

    Hi Jason, after a fantastic year and half with my Ipad cover you did me I'm back for more!
    It has aged beautifully so I am once again smitten for some more leather.

    This time it will be in the form of a 15" MacBook Pro Retina case. Have you done anything in this size before? I understand you have done previous MBP models.

    The usual email enquiry will be sent your way once I get the nod from you.

    Thanks.

    Sure ill cross link from when I posted it ages ago in the projects thread.

    I got some of my triumph somewhere built up. Ill be happy to post my project on slades here too. A lovely guy Tony Greening from wimborne is helping me with it. A really nice guy should you need any frame building or fixtures done he is your man.

    Apologies if this has already been posted and this may not be up to everybodys taste but I believe field cycles have already been under the banner of pr0n on here. Anyway a nice new build.

    I went into "Wheelie Great Bike Store" on Lansdowne Road earlier. It looks really dodgy in there, creates everywhere but I was desperate. I was actually really surprised, the guys in there (Ben and Bernard) were both really cool and seemed to know their stuff. They did the bits I needed sorting out on my bike in their workshop and didn't ask for any payment at all (last time I went to Primera in Charminster they charged me £20 to remove a sprocket and took 3 days to do it). They even invited me on a couple of rides! If you're nearby it might be worth just popping in and having a chat!

    +1 on the great chat with these guys. I've heard about them before and a few weeks back and thought I would pop in to see them as they do old steel second hand bicycles. I was after a 531 frame for a project for slades, although no luck they were extremely helpful and friendly towards someone who just walked in. Between them and Xchurch cycle xperience they generally take up the minority of tough work that I cant do in house.

    • I should probably take this opportunity to say Hi, between Bournemouth & Bath (university) you may see me around either on a fixed racing green coventry eagle or a grey triumph. Your more then welcome to say Hi. Would be nice to meet up with a few people before I head back to uni at the end of september!

    Was wondering if anyone picked one of these up this year and wanted to pass it on? It looks like this

    I will need it posted down to Bournemouth as well.

    The usual reply or Pm thanks.

    Was fortunate to see these bikes in the flesh at Bespoked Bristol and have a chat with Jake. I also think that an entire frame is alot to trade for these parts. Maybe instead some smaller work on frames if needed? Its entirely up to you either way. Great bicycles and great guy.
