Thomson - My Post


"Does Fixed Gear Freestyle Suck?"


In case you're wondering why I haven't been posting any fixed freestyle edits here recently, go ahead and read THIS article on The Footdown. I agree on most of the points made by the author, especially concerning both rollerblading and razor scooters...

DIY Disc Wheel 2.0


Crusty's second version/attempt at constructing an DIY "alt.disc wheel"(tm). Built from discarded vinyl records of some Finnish punk bands no one cares about, apparently.

Pelizzoli Leggenda


The first Pelizzoli Leggenda in Finland, I guess. And again, not mine. Great pics too.

Miche Primato Pista Hubs


I was taking taking apart my oldest wheelset last night and this is what I found under the grime, a crack. I've had a brand new Miche track chain snap on me previously but I must admit that these hubs have served me well: three years of riding through summers and winters, racing alleycats, playing polo and whatnot, and keeping in mind that I got them in a used wheelset. Anyhow, no more Miche components for me, grazie.

HELLsinki Spring Classic: HKI - Porvoo HKI 2011


The road cycling season has been officially opened yesterday with the traditional Helsinki - Porvoo - Helsinki Spring Classic. Lots of people showed up for the 110km or so ride, second half of it against heavy wind as usual. Fun times!




Photos by Daniel and Paulus, there's plenty more behind the links. Thanks.

DIY Disc Wheel


Okay, very fascinating. Apparently this weights something like 5 kg....

And for the record, this is NOT my project.

EDIT. The evidence seems to have been taken down, maybe for a reason...

Welcome The Ughs from THE UGHS on Vimeo.

I liked this video, go check these mecs out here...

Would you pay...


... £300 for this 'NOS Cinelli Track Frame'?

Business Idea?


Yes, Musta & Valkoinen in Helsinki now offers the service of taking professional studio photos of your bike for the price of a standard official passport mugshot, ie. 15€ a pop.

More Good Things


My kinda newish totally awesome hella hyphy breakless fixie skidder tarck bike, just like it's 2007 all over again YO! Would still need a trispoke, 'spoke or something similar, though.

And this great Ciccone Youth track has absolutely nothing to do with anything here except that it just came on in my headphones while I was posting this so I feel like sharing it with you.

Helsinki Street Stylin'


This is probably the first time ever I post anything from Pinkbike.com. And no, those guys are not riding fixed but I like these pics, taken at couple of different places here in Helsinki. I'm really waiting for someone to hit those spots on a fixed gear freestyle bike...

You like riding in jeans...


... but you agree that they're not always the best choice for a longer ride. Well, these would be the perfect solution, now wouldn't they?
