    Just curious but don’t any of you guys do your own work on your bikes?

    No. I'm mechanically inept. I'm good with computers and can ride a bike pretty well, but doing actual work on them... forget it!

    When I'm not using Paul H (see above), and for an actual shop: Rayments. All the guys in there are really great.

    I think its the high rents and subsequently the rates that make it so hard to do and make a living out of it

    Sky high rents and rates and everything is cheaper on the Internet

    These are exactly the problems. The rent problem is really exaggerated in Brighton.

    BTW... Paul of Rule 5 Bikes couldn't make the shop work for this very reason, but is now going great guns being the "mobile bike mechanic". He comes to you. Check out his FB page: https://en-gb.facebook.com/rule5bikes/

    His cargo bike setup is really impressive. Pretty much everything he needs (including portal bike stand) is on there. He re-cabled my MTB from it just the other day. Forgive the shameless plug, but maybe give him some love (and business)!

    You're welcome to go and get my tag. Can give clues if needs be.

    The Mash is ridiculously light, and gets up to speed very quickly. It’s highly responsive... you start pedalling a bit faster, and it accelerates away instantly. Never known anything like it.

    Hi @Dogtemple,

    Yes, new bike... sort of. I fell in love with the Mash SF AC-1 frame:

    https://www.mashsf.com/uncategorized/mas­h-ac-1-frameset

    but thought it was way too expensive on release. At the end of last summer I noticed it had nearly halved in price, so I went for it (with Mash riser bar and zingy purple bar ends).

    Having three fixies would be overkill, so the bike is actually a rebuild of my Cinelli Vigorelli around the new frame. (Still got the Cinelli frame in case I need to go back.)

    With the demise of Rule 5 Bikes, Rayments did the build. Thanks Jim!

    V happy with the results. Looking forward to tagging more with this bike.

    Happy to give clues on this new tag...

    This view looks so impressive when you're there. A photo (or rather my photo) doesn't do it justice.

    William Street; parallel to John Street.

    I never noticed this site before, even though it's a stone's throw from the UoB's Waste House which I tagged not too long ago.

    Entrance to the old Kemp town railway tunnel

    At the very back of the Freshfield Business Park, if anyone wants to visit - or attend a yoga class (!) in the tunnel itself.
