  • Great pics. Thanks for sharing them.

  • Printspace for high quality prints and high resolution scans, they have an awesome hasselblad negative scanner.

    Cool thanks, i'll check them out.

  • Trevor Bull - he's the LBS mechanic from when I lived in Brum and suggested I ride a fixed wheel when I was asking about 'as low maintenance as possible' bikes about 4 years ago! I knew he was an ex-pro but have never seen any photos of him in action.
    Superb.

  • thanks !

    the legs on the guys 2nd from last are huge! and u can see the muscle fibres if u look closely :O
    with an average diameter of 80 microns, i doubt you see individual fibres, i struggle under a microscope.

    hehe :)

  • Great pics, thanks to you and thanks to your dad. My first ever 'proper' bike was a Tony Doyle racer, happy days.

    :)

  • Thanks for sharing, a really nice collection :)

  • Why not get a manufacturer/clothing label/etc to sponsor the book? Seems like the sort of thing that a lot of companies would be willing to put their name to.

    Also, I've got a proper neg/slide scanner if you want to borrow it (currently lent to Wigan Will).

  • Cheers Tom. Yeah, there seems like there'd be plenty of routes to try and take if and when it came to putting a book or something together. My dad already has a decent negative scanner, plus a massive flatbed for prints, he seems pretty on the case with this. Hopefully there should be some more pics to show soon!

  • I didn't know where to post this, so I think to revive a great thread with some more great pictures, sorry if I upset anyone, no my intention

  • Polakowski, is your dad Polish?

  • Wow thanks for sharing, both sets of pics are class
