On Sunday, 4th June, at 1 pm, we will have our first-ever Fiefdom Tracklocross popup event at Allez Allez Allez.Continue reading “The First Fiefdom Pop-Up Shop”
Do you remember when I released this video about these two tracklocross greats above?
No, fair enough. It did, though, lead to other things, including the thing everyone told me couldn’t be done.
A tracklocross specific shop (I may also add some FGFS parts as well). I’m only going to serve niche cycle sports, and I’m claiming I’m the first. 🤣Continue reading “Fixedgearbike.shop”
Glasgow Tracklocross Ride Outs
Yesterday was the first of hopefully many Glasgow tracklocross ride-outs. We took a nice wee loop through Pollok Park, which was made all the better by the Glasgow weather actually being on our side for a change.Continue reading “Glasgow Tracklocross Ride Outs”
Fiefdom Tracklocross – The Shop
To make your life even better, I’ve started a little tracklocross shop. There will be more stuff to come, including parts, but to avoid procrastination, I’ve opened with some print-on-demand stuff. You can go to Fixed Gear Bike Shop, the stuff on it just now is available in the UK, but as it’s print-on-demand, I’ll add US, EU, and Asia options as well.
Fixated VLOG – The Trick Track Beginnings
I’ve started another VLOG, why you may ask, and it would be a fair question. I have done so to add to my tracklocross offerings as I’m delving into more fixed gear riding, and I felt a little separation would be nice. In this VLOG, I change my All-City Big Block from a street cruiser into a trick track bike as I diversify my riding and work on new skills.
I also eat humble pie, assuming my BMX and offroad fixed gear skills would be easily transferable. Turns out they weren’t.Continue reading “Fixated VLOG – The Trick Track Beginnings”
Tracklocross Chronicles VLOG 2 – The Squid SO-EZ Tracklocross Build
The other day I posted my Squid SO-EZ on r/tracklocross, on Reddit if you didn’t know, and got many questions. I decided to make a little YouTube video to show the bike and hopefully answer a few of those questions. Got to say I love riding the SO-EZ tracklocross frameset, and I probably consider it more of a retro mountain bike than I do a track bike.Continue reading “Tracklocross Chronicles VLOG 2 – The Squid SO-EZ Tracklocross Build”
Tracklocross Chronicles: YouTube VLOGs
Ok, so I’ve now started to do VLOGs. In the first one, I’ve left all my mistakes in, so you can see that we are all imperfect, but we can try our best. I’m also in no way a YouTube professional, and these VLOGs will always reflect that. In this one, I forgot to put any tracklocross in, but you do get a little FGFS action and a look at the fixed gear BMX I built; I think it’ll change the world, but I’m not saying if for good or for bad.Continue reading “Tracklocross Chronicles: YouTube VLOGs”
Tracklocross Ride Through Bellshill Wheeled Sports Area
At work, we’ve spent the last few years working on a wheeled sports area for Strathclyde Park. It is now open, although the opening day is still a few months away. Today, I took the tracklocross rig for a little pedal through the skills area and the down the blue trail. Give the video a little watch, and then go ride your bike.Continue reading “Tracklocross Ride Through Bellshill Wheeled Sports Area”
My Top 6 Tracklocross Frames for 2023
I wrote an enormous article and a follow up where I listed a whole pile of frames for tracklocross. For this year, rather than trying to be fully encompassing, I will list my top 6 tracklocross frames for this year. I’ve gone with frames that should be pretty much available worldwide.Continue reading “My Top 6 Tracklocross Frames for 2023”
The Cycle Path Olympics
Cycling is a race for many people, even if the only people they race with are their imaginary opponents on a cycle path. There is nothing quite like hearing someone change down gears after you have passed them, to then bury themselves to regain their imaginary first place from you. You watch their bodies rock and sway, their head slowly dropping lower as their energy dwindles. Their body starts to sag, hanging from their hands, which hold onto their bars with a death grip, all while you wonder, “Why?”Continue reading “The Cycle Path Olympics”
