I should have posted this earlier but I forgot it was on. It’s a short film produced by RSA Films and Rapha about the Italian framebuilder Dario Pegoretti. It’s only available for 24 hours and I don’t know when that period started or is stopping so watch it now if you can, before it’s gone.
It’s very good.
EDIT – It doesn’t support embedding in my web page, so click this link to watch it.
Nice little film about custom motorcycle builder Shinya Kimura (via Truls. again!)
Jonathan just picked this up today. We had 2 main aims with this bike, firstly it had to fit right and secondly it had to look like a normal bike. While this wouldn’t normally be a problem, Jonathan is 6’9″ (> 206cm).
After a quick spin along the road Jonathan seems happy with the fit, time will tell how good this is but it’s looking fine at the moment. As far as it looking like a normal bike, I think this worked out well too. It’s hard to believe, but the seattube measures about 25″. I could hardly get on it to test ride it!
29er wheelset, S&S couplers, Rohloff hub and belt drive. That’s a lot of bike.
Thanks to Fatty for reminding me of this video:
I’m no bmxer and don’t really ‘get’ a lot of what goes on with those tiddly little bikes but some of this stuff is way impressive.
