  1. Bike Shop in East London | Isambard’s Vintage Bicycles

    On Bethnal Green Road, they restore and rebuild old bikes with new components.

  2. Vickers Roadster

    Rather nice British-made bike. A bit too retro though? The most modern looking thing are those mudguards, which look a bit too minimal…

  3. Minute is a pint-sized bike that’s perfectly designed for city cycling

    I’d really like an upright bike that looks like it was made in the 21st century. Not entirely sure this is it though. (via @agpublic)

  4. Hobbs of Barbican

    I never knew: Between 1930 and WWII the firm Hobbs of Barbican made bikes in the Barbican area of London, later moving to Dagenham.

  5. ‘The Headbadge’: Raleigh Catalog Archive Project

    Ah, even more old Raleigh bike catalogues, from 1938 to 1987. Getting closer. (Domain updated from www.jaysmarine.com, 2012-05-01.)

  6. Bike Pictures on bulgier.net

    Mainly for the “Bike Catalogs” section, full of old brochures which were handy for trying to identify poorly-described old bikes on eBay. For example.

  7. Locks that work - London Fixed-gear and Single-speed

    Looks like a nicely comprehensive list of the good bike locks. (via tomtaylor)

  8. LRB · Iain Sinclair · The Raging Peloton

    He has a nice turn of phrase but Iain Sinclair is a gloomy, misanthropic reactionary who thinks the only people who can ride bikes authentically are the 1950s working class and eccentric poets. One wonders why he still lives in London.

  9. A unified theory of New York biking | Analysis & Opinion |

    Yes, yes, yes. The same for London too. Cyclist vs car and cyclist vs pedestrian conflicts arise because cyclists act more like pedestrians (ignoring rules) than cars (which by and large obey rules). (via Kottke)

  10. London cycle hire launch – live updates | UK news | guardian.co.uk

    For Boris’s Big Society gag and “If you can’t turn the clock back to 1904 ladies and gentlemen, what is the point of being a Conservative?” (via Haddock)

  11. TheWashCycle: The Myth of the Scofflaw Cyclist

    I think decriminalising cyclists jumping red lights could, possibly, work. But until that happens: don’t. That simple. Enough of the moaning and self-justification. (via Blech)

  12. Click opera - Fixated on the fixie

    Momus on fixed gear bikes. (via blackbeltjones)

  13. Demonstration at St Pancras International, 14 - 11- 2007 — Camden Cycling Campaign

    One of the downsides of the new station: stupid little bike racks (obviously designed years ago by someone who never used a bike) a long way from anywhere useful.

  14. Ops on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Oops indeed. What kind of vehicle did that sort of damage? Somewhere near the Barbican apparently, Silk Street or Moor Lane?

  15. Shimano pedals PDM324 - on one :: Calderdale’s 2nd biggest bike company

    I’m starting to think about clipless pedals and these sound good for me.

  16. Hubjub—Fixed gear in the UK

    Recommended on londonfgss.com.

  17. Moving Target Forum - All Discussions

    UK cycle courier forum. (Vanilla seems like the forum software of choice.)

  18. All Discussions - London Fixed Gear & Single Speed

    Bicycles. Mostly seem to know each other from real life. Uses Vanilla.

  19. Swobo Bikes - Otis

    Currently fancying this bike a lot. But it’s only mail order from the US. And maybe I’d prefer a more upright, old-fashioned bike. (via Haddock)

  20. ABICI

    Simply-designed, Italian, old-fashioned looking bikes. Stupid Flash site. (via Monocle)

  21. Bikely - Discover and share your favorite bicycle routes

    People sharing bike routes in different cities/countries. Using Google Maps. Interesting to see which way people go. (via Blackbeltjones)

  22. Harris Cyclery Articles

    Oodles of articles about adjusting bicycle bits and other bike topics.
