Tell us about your bikes
An assortment of small wheel and folding bikes. Now there is a place in everyone's cycling life for one of these. A Surly CX flat bar custom build, for when there is a need to be conventional

All my bikes have names. Is that weird?
About Me:
Semi retired... bikes have been a hobby/outlet/passion for 35 years and more. It is about the bike and the ride. Rode with Bike North for several years . A totally organized club with a range of rides for different experiences. Happy now to ride in a relaxed manner and take in the view, whatever that is. Admire people who have an interest in older bikes and present them in their original configuration (where possible). Cycling and its community has been good to me.
Over more recent years, I have developed a penchant for capable small wheel bikes. Having a great relationship with your LBS enhances your overall cycling experience. Mine is Cheeky Transport

I remember when it all started. No, not the exact date, but a time in my life when this all came about. The benevolent gift of being given a quality used hand built bicycle through the hand of a departing friendship could never have foreseen this symbol to become a loved accoutrement to the life that followed.

I was in my twenties at the time. The boom bust cycle of the real estate market had only recently swung back to bust. If not complete austerity measures, then more careful…


Schwalbe Marathon Supremes

Posted on August 14, 2013 at 12:25pm 12 Comments

I was considering running Schwalbe Marathon Supremes on a custom Surly CX (general duties - rider weight 68kg). Thoughts are, 32s on the rear, 28s up front. The question is, does anyone have first hand experience with these tyres. Do they run to stated size, or are they under or over stated spec, as can be sometimes the case? Thank you for any feedback....Sharky
