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”
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 2- More Trick Track Fixed Gear Shenanigans
Over on the YouTubes, I have decided to mess about with two vlogs a week. It is about time I tried to stick to a schedule, so from now on, I will post a Fixated vlog on Wednesday evenings (UK time) and my tracklocross vlogs on a Friday evenings. For the second video, I mess about with the trick track bike and turn it into a commuter and back again to fail at track stands and to make some interesting life choices at the skatepark.Continue reading “Fixated Vlog 2- More Trick Track Fixed Gear Shenanigans”
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: 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”
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”
YouTube Shorts: A quick way to tell pedals apart
Want to know a quick way to tell your pedals apart?
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”
Ulysses the Tracklocross
As we head into winter, I always feel the urge to ride my bike more. I guess this may seem strange to some people, particularly those of the fair-weather cyclist variety, but I hate the heat and riding in summer makes me mostly feel horrible. I guess this is because I am Scottish, and my beard tries to be ginger.Continue reading “Ulysses the Tracklocross”
YouTube Video Series: What is Tracklocross
I’ve started a new series on YouTube exploring what is tracklocross. The first is a quick video explaining what tracklocross is to me; I hope you’ll find it a fun little video. Next week there will be video uploads exploring the parts of tracklocross bikes and possibly a rant on why steel is best.Continue reading “YouTube Video Series: What is Tracklocross”
