WOT-moving-pic

Some of you regular visitors might have noticed a drop in productivity here over in the last few months. Its not been because we’ve run out of rad stuff to enthuse about. Quite the opposite, we’ve been busy beavering away on our new site and the new chapter for Wheels On Toast.

Visit www.wheelsontoast.co.uk from now on where you’ll find the same (but better) blog stuff as always. Theres also a brand new section profiling brands and individuals we think deserve more then a lil old blog post. Finally theres a bit more info about the folks behind WOT and the other services we do if you’re so inclined to know.

Go on then, what are you waiting for, times a wasting. http://www.wheelsontoast.co.uk

I’ve been getting a bit jaded by my usual internet haunts of late and have been very happily getting lost in the printed word via Autobiography by Morrisssy and the latest copy of Jocks and Nerds. BUT one site I can always rely on delivering the goods with fresh inspiration is http://www.mksim.fr.

This shots from mksim’s instagram but you’ve got time drop by if you like bikes, surf, cars and general cool shit.

Merci beaucoup Maxime

I’ve seen this bike countless times but strangely never written about it. Well todays the day my friend, heres some rad pics of Christophe Canitrot’s Triumph. Boy is this special in so many ways, but its the Shimanno DX kick start and RatBones chain tensioner that tickle to my particular cultural reference points. Via

Also heres a nice little edit of Christophes shop in Toulouse featuring said ride.

To say how integral cycling is to my daily life I’m always surprised how little I post about my bike. I’m lucky to be pretty content with its current set up which I’ve had for maybe five years. Never replaced a part just for the sake of it, only if bits have broken beyond repair or have worn out (chains, cogs, tyres). I get a great sense of satisfaction looking at down at it when riding and thinking, ‘hmm yeah you’re great, I wouldn’t change a thing on you’. Unlike my surfboards or cars which I never seem to be truly content with and always looking for the next one.

Whats the point of this post then, yeah so I don’t covet other bikes too often but every so often this particular ride crops up in a tumblr or blog and reminds me that an early 90s Cannondale Track is possibly the only upgrade I’d really consider. This lovely well worn specimin comes via
