First post here for a little while! I recently got a new job much closer to home, still working in the graphic design field and to a job that allows to to exert my creativeness a little more. For the new journey I thought it best to buy a bike as i’d need one inbetween the train station and home. Before leaving my london job I decided to check out evans cycles as i’d seen a bike which was marked down by £200, I pretty much bought it there and then. I bought myself a Dahon Vitesse folding bike with an internal gear hub, seatpost with integrated pump and even a granny rack at the back.
I found this image of the bike on google, mine is exactly the same apart from I have a kickstand and my chain has this cool thing called ‘BioLogic FreeDrive‘ a device that fits around the chain to protect the riders clothing.
I’m loving the new job and loving getting an hours exercise everyday on my new ‘velo’ as they say here (did i mention that most people here are French).
Anyway I will be posting fairly regularly now as I have more time on my hands. Upcoming posts include:
- DIY Rainlegs i’ve made
- using logs to grow mushrooms
- chairs I plan to upholster, and
- a logo i’m designing for a friend
