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.
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”
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 Video Shorts: Tracklocross is Political
I guess everything is political. Tracklocross does feel like a subversive experience, though.
Fuck the Tories.Continue reading “YouTube Video Shorts: Tracklocross is Political”
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”
Slow TV Style Tracklocross Ride With My Daughter
As the title says, I went for a wee ride on the Squid SO-EZ tracklocross monster with my daughter, rocking her Forme kid’s mountain bike. It has been a while since we were last out while awaiting a break in the Scottish weather; it has been non-stop storms recently.
Mindful Cycling, Possibly Tracklocross Style
The last month has been, or so, has been quiet from me. I’ve been busy, and finding time to write, never mind cycling, has been challenging. I’ve been working on gaining mindfulness and counselling qualifications. I’d found a lot of help in my life through being more mindful. Now I want to pass that teaching on.Continue reading “Mindful Cycling, Possibly Tracklocross Style”
