    @marcomarcos going through Hackney Wick. I know it was him because he had his name written across the back of his shirt. Damn cool.

    I see they're finally getting around to building the "art hotel". What joy.

    The Lea has broken free at Markfield park. There's literally inches of water on the towpath.

    If you think English fans are racist I guess you haven't met many Italians.

    Glorious ending: Southgate ever the loser, and Saka scarred for life.

    I was referring to the dawn of retrobike and all that stuff, when the industry was marketing full-suspension, overly heavy, overly complicated bikes and many people decided they'd rather have an old Klein, Merlin, Bontrager, Rocky Mountain etc. Today if you want a decent bike you seemingly have to pay a few grand for hydraulic disc brake graveltastic dropperposty shininess, when a light, quality steel old fixed/single speed with 25c tyres will be more fun around London, far cheaper and in the eyes of this old hipster, cooler.

    I was lucky enough to see an original and unmolested 14bike co build in baby pink with matching spok in someone’s design studio recently. Looked like it hadn’t been ridden since 2011. It was a true shut up and take my money build in every sense.

    At what time will the "retrofixed" revival start? When did old MTBs go from old to desirable?

    gravel bike

    Must be the naffest bike you can ride at the moment. Closely followed by those 26" abominations. Saw someone on a fixed Cinelli in Leyton this afternoon, and they didn't look like a lame, middle-class, gravel riding fuck. Ride on, sweet prince...
