Decathlon  Elops 500- A Super Cheap Tracklocross Bike?

Decathlon Elops 500- A Super Cheap Tracklocross Bike?

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.

Scottish Tracklocross Adventures

Scottish Tracklocross Adventures

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.

Tracklocross and Fixed Gear Skids

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.

Where Have I Been?

Do you care, do I even care? Possibly, not the best introduction to a blog post yet, but I’m doing my best. The blog, though, has been ticking over nicely. I guess people want to know about tracklocross? The good news is I still do as well, and I also need to post about my Squid/BLB SO-EZ build. It is a proper spare parts build.

Rather than jumping back into writing loads, I thought I’d post a few recent tracklocross videos that I’ve seen on YouTube.
