I gave my bike a wipe down and took it outside to get some pictures tonight. It’s been in this guise for a few months now and there’s nothing else I want to do with this bike other ride it!

Learning stacking at Newport Velodrome

I’ve recently been riding at Newport Velodrome with a view to getting my track accreditation. I’m not actually sure what I’m going to do with it once I have it, as I’ve never been one of life’s natural racers. Anyway, I knew I was going to have a bit of time spare before my session started last time, so I took the old camerall down. There’s a few more shots after the jump.

Raleigh Scorpio first fix
Raleigh Scorpio first fix

ere’s the Raleigh Scorpio that I recently rescued from the binmen. It’s in the first phase of its conversion to a fixed gear bike. I had a new wheel-set built for it at Bristol Bike Workshop. System Ex Hubs and Mavic Open Pro rims.

For the future I have some bits due to go on it – flat bars, white Oury grips, white/black Dirty Harry brake lever which should go on this weekend. I’m going to remove the decals. On my wish list are a new white saddle, a nicer seat post, some metal toe-clips and white leather straps. Eventually I may replace the crankset for something a bit swisher too!
