I have finally put my money where my mouth is and started to put together little parts kits to make your voyage into tracklocross that little bit easier. I don’t even want you to buy a new bike; if you have an early 90’s MTB, then you could be on an easy and cheap street to build your first tracklocross beast.
This Sunday at Cathkin Braes, we will run a dual slalom tracklocross race. The meetup starts at midday, and here is the What 3 Words for the location. There will be prizes, there will be skids, jumps and rad times, so grab a friend and come and hang out.Continue reading “Tracklosalmon -Tracklocross Race”

The other day we looked at the start of the Western tradition of philosophy. In it, we discovered how Socrates was highly influenced by riding fixed gear bikes offroad. A pastime he called tracklocrossος. Now we are going to jump a few years and land in the continental philosophy years. As someone living in Britain, I feel worried about discussing continental ideas. If I vanish mid-article, please know the Brexit police have taken me away for re-education.Continue reading “The Philosophy of Tracklocross – Part 2”
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”
