Video: Not news but worth watching… The Spokesman
Cracking video about an Australian bicycle collector, includes a great potted history of the bicycle… and some very lovely bikes
It's Friday, the sun is shining, the weekend is looming so it's time to take a break from worrying about Wiggo's knee, what Rapha are going to do with all those relaxed fit Wiggo Team Sky jerseys, kick back and think about how great bikes are.
To help you do just that here's a great little film about Australian bicycle collector, "James" who lives with his bicycle collection which includes everything from a Von Drais Hobby Horse and covers all the bases you'd want in a collection of seemingly every significant vintage bike design. He restores the bikes by hand, in his very cool workshop. Oh, and if you like old pick up trucks you're in for a treat too, although it doesn't look like James drives his much.
Anyway, enough prattle enjoy the film…
