While in Melbourne got to finally meet Sasha from Pony Bikes! I’ve been making custom caps for them for ages now but have never got to meet in person so I dropped by the shop had a chat and snapped some photos.

Little Mule is a new cafe/fixie store in Melbourne. Located in a lane way it is filled with amazing recycled timbers and has not only a great array of food and drinks but also design and sell their own fixed gear bikes too.

On Saturday at the Deus swap meet I was asked if I had any cotton tape suitable for handlebar taping. Someone had suggested me as possibly having some as they assumed the tape used for sewing was the same. Most of my tapes I use wouldn’t be suitable for bars but I knew there was someone out there making proper old school style cotton bar tape and that company is Newbaums.
Made in the USA and available in a huge colour range too.
More details can be found on their website and hopefully the person asking about the tape on the weekend reads this post and can find what they were looking for.
A bike basket that is shipped as a flat packed item and then “pops up” once it’s installed. Cute idea, I like when designers think of shipping and packaging not just end useage on a design project.
Looks nice but I’d be slightly worried that my bag might fall out of the holes?

One of the many reasons why I can’t wait to get to Melbourne next week is the The Wheeler.
Only launched this week it is a magazine with a difference. Here is how they describe themselves
Hello and welcome to a new magazine that embraces Melbourne’s vibrant cycling scene – a social and sporting montage textured with energy and passion
I love seeing things that people in the cycling world have created to share their passion and love of all forms of cycling and am really excited about this kind of community grass roots involvement.
The small things count and the list of Bike Friendly Cafes in Melbourne is fantastic. No one likes having a good ride spoilt by a grumpy cafe that doesn’t want bikes being there.Now that problem is eliminated because they give you a huge list of friendly places to head to post ride.
Wish them all the best with the magazine! (so wish Sydney had something like this!)
Sweet handmade swingtags found via A Beautiful Mess like the combination of DIY with a vintage bicycle that’s just our style.
We’ve been talking about doing some bicycle touring and suddenly I am starting to come across all kinds of fabrics and ideas that would be perfect for it.
One of my favourite blogs Archival Clothing even had a DIY on how to reproof waxed cotton the other week so I thought I would share it in case anyone else has been bitten by the touring bug.
