Yes, it's been dead around here for quite a while. Apologies. I think postings will still be sporadic to say the least. Everyone's been busy doing their thing, I bought a flat and moved to SE London, so been busy settling in over there. Spring is here so I am cycling into work more again. I tried my utmost to cyle through the winter but it's dark, bloody freezing and joyless so I just went the public transport route. I have discovered the delights of Brixton as a result so every cloud etc.
Anyhow, we just got a bonus at work, a rare occurrence. I have been wanting to get a second bike to go with the Brompton but not been inspired with the choices on offer. Where I live it's hill central so a single speed is simply not an option, plus I am lazy and like gears. After some scrabbling around and much wailing and gnashing of teeth I found the rather wonderful Tokyo Bikes. Seems like they are a recently new outfit to London. I like their simplicity and utilitarian minimalist aesthetic. So I might just buy myself one, should the cost suit and the bike ride as nicely as it looks. Off to test one out tomorrow. They currently have a small workshop in E2 but are apparently opening a permanent shop next month...happy cycling.
