It is Friday, the end of the working week (possibly), and it is time to chill out and watch a video. A video that will make you want to jump out on your bike this weekend and go shred. Thankfully, I have just the video for you.
One of my most successful posts has been about discussing frames for tracklocross and I was raking about for other examples the other day. I came across the Elops 500 from Decathlon, a complete single speed for £250/€230. A bike that could get you started for less than half the price of any of the frames on my list.Continue reading “Decathlon Elops 500- A Super Cheap Tracklocross Bike?”
In my “Who Are We” section and the various rules pages, I mention that Fiefdom is part of a community interest company, and I thought I should maybe explain what we do.Continue reading “Teaching the Youth Tracklocross”
I went off on a bit of an adventure around the Three Lochs Way on the Squid/BLB SO-EZ at the weekend. Being an idiot, I managed to forget my camera and Go-Pro and also to charge my phone. Documentation was therefore a bit of an issue. I guess it is true what they say about preparation.Continue reading “Scottish Tracklocross Adventures”
The first part of the guide to frames for tracklocross has proven to be a bit of a hit, and I’ve also had people send me other options and frames to look at and see what I think. Now, I’ve started to compile a second guide so that we don’t end up with a massive mess of a post.Continue reading “Track Frames With Clearance for Tracklocross – Part 2”
Okay, it came out 4 months ago but it is nearly the weekend and honestly, I am missing winter. A little tracklocross video to keep you hyped and get you out shredding.
People often ask me if their bike can work as a commuter? Which got me thinking about using a tracklocross bike as a commuter. The simple answer is that a tracklocross bike will make an excellent commuter, especially when the weather is less than perfect.Continue reading “Can a Tracklocross Bike Be a Great Commuter?”
Sometimes, I like to coast on a bike. I’m not sure why, but sometimes it can also be fun. Sliding around, foot down style, it can almost be as great as riding fixed gear. So, I sometimes pull a bike that isn’t one of my tracklocross bikes out for a ride in the woods. Today I fancied a new bike, so I built up a Surly Lowside, okay I started doing this last week, but today I finished.Continue reading “Surly Lowside”
Skids are not only for kids. They are for everyone. There is nothing quite like the feeling of pulling long-ass skids on a bike. Tracklocross makes skids feel even better. You can ride through town on your fixed gear and pull skids all day on roads, but as soon as you are out in the wild and hammering through skids in the dirt, especially if it’s dry and dusty, and life just gets even better.Continue reading “Tracklocross and Fixed Gear Skids”
