After yesterdays post of the trials video, I remembered I have a video of myself and an old friend doing some trials back in the day. we were OK for some part time riders but oh did we think we were cool :-/
Most of the spots in Leamington are un-ride-able now but I want to get out on the trials bikes again and see if I can still ride.
Recently entering the world of blogging and Facebook etc we are stumbling across more and more interesting and great stuff from the biking world. The Brooks blog is an interesting read with all sorts of different ideas and subjects up for discussion.
This is taken from an email that was sent to me :-)
Christmas Health and Safety.
get down to the happy business of singing Christmas Carols, the following are
some things to consider from an Elfin Safety point of view:-
through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh
fields we go laughing all the way
assessment must be submitted before an open sleigh is considered safe for
members of the public to travel on. The risk assessment must also consider
whether it is appropriate to use only one horse for such a venture,
particularly if passengers are of larger proportions. Please note, permission
must be gained from landowners before entering their fields. To avoid offending
those not participating in celebrations, we would request that laughter is
moderate only and not loud enough to be considered a noise nuisance.
shepherds watched their flocks by night all seated on the ground,
of the Lord came down and glory shone around
of Shepherd's has complained that it breaches health and safety regulations to
insist that shepherds watch their flocks without appropriate seating
arrangements being provided, therefore benches, stools and orthopaedic chairs
are now available. Shepherds have also requested that due to the inclement
weather conditions at this time of year that they should watch their flocks
via cctv cameras from centrally heated shepherd observation huts.
note, the angel of the lord is reminded that before shining his / her glory all
around she / he must ascertain that all shepherds have been issued with glasses
capable of filtering out the harmful effects of UVA, UVB and Glory.
The Red Nosed Reindeer
the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose.
you ever saw him, you would even say it glows.
advised that under the Equal Opportunities policy, it is inappropriate for
persons to make comment with regard to the ruddiness of any part of Mr. R.
Reindeer. Further to this, exclusion of Mr R Reindeer from the Reindeer Games
will be considered discriminatory and disciplinary action will be taken against
those found guilty of this offence. A full investigation will be implemented
and sanctions - including suspension on full pay - will be considered whilst
this investigation takes place.
donkey, little donkey on the dusty road
keep on plodding onwards with your precious load
have issued strict guidelines with regard to how heavy a load that a donkey of
small stature is permitted to carry, also included in the guidelines is
guidance regarding how often to feed the donkey and how many rest breaks are
required over a four hour plodding period. Please note that due to the
increased risk of pollution from the dusty road, Mary and Joseph are required to
wear face masks to prevent inhalation of any airborne particles. The donkey has
expressed his discomfort at being labelled 'little' and would prefer just to be
simply referred to as Mr. Donkey. To comment upon his height or lack thereof
may be considered an infringement of his equine rights.
kings of Orient are, bearing gifts we traverse afar.
fountain, moor and mountain following yonder star
the gift of gold is still considered acceptable - as it may be redeemed at a
later date through such organisations as 'cash for gold' etc, gifts of
frankincense and myrrh are not appropriate due to the potential risk of oils
and fragrances causing allergic reactions. A suggested gift alternative would
be to make a donation to a worthy cause in the recipient’s name or perhaps give
a gift voucher.
not advise that the traversing kings rely on navigation by stars in order to
reach their destinations and suggest the use of GPS or SatNav, which will
provide the quickest route and advice regarding fuel consumption. Please note
as per the guidelines from the RSPCA for Mr Donkey, the camels carrying
the three kings of Orient will require regular food and rest breaks. Facemasks
for the three kings are also advisable due to the likelihood of dust from the
This Yeti has been built and set up by us but its by no means finished...
There are the basics for a stealth machine and the owner has some great plans for it.
Over the winter it will remain in its current livery and after all the muddy horrible weather is out of the way the bike will be re-born in an all black, under the radar approach.
As you can see, the black spec has started with the Thomson stem, black rims and finishing kit all to match. The Hope brakes have been fitted with black bore caps and black lever adjusters (we don't think this has been done yet as we pulled in a favor from the guys at Hope) - Let us know if you have seen this before and I am wrong... :-) Clearly Black rotors to suit.
The Forks will be resprayed black, black frame decals (we dont know if the green flash will stay or not yet) and some other select choices once the winter is out of the way. Another happy customer :-)
Here are some shots of the Gents bike but we also have the ladies bike in stock.
Each bike comes with built in lights, hub gears and mudguards, the gents bike even comes with the built in frame lock as standard on this model and both can be fitted with front racks. The gents can even have both front and rear racks. These bikes don't cost the earth either! Just £599
