We have loads of these Sweetskinz coloured tyres in the office.
They're not on the website or in the catalouge, which is probably why they have stuck around so long, but if you'd like one just give us a call and we'll be happy to get them sent out for you.
They are also reflective, so you'll look cool and be safe at night!
They are £15.00 each. we have ones for 26" and 700C rims.
it's been pouring with rain all day.
it was raining when we came in this morning, it was raining when we went for lunch, and it looks like it will be raining when we go home.
it's not all bad news, though.
as team rider Dan knows, if you have the right jacket on, even the worst weather can be fun.
Go on rain, do your worst.
It was -3c when I set out for work today, and the roads were like an ice-rink.
This was my view when I got to the top of the hill and looked out towards Cardigan.
Looked even better in the flesh!
Then I went down the hill into the freezing fog.
(and yes, that's the sea you can see in the horizon there!)
The Sample sale started in London last night and there was a great turn out!
The venue was packed with people and the clothes were flying off the rails
In fact, it went so well that we realised there wasn't enough stock down there and this morning we boxed up a load more merino, jackets, t-shirts and sweats.
All this will be down in London tomorrow... but there's still plenty of stuff left at the sale to last til then, so drop by!
The last lorry full of stuff for Bristol is being loaded up right now.
Loads of clothes. A sofa, some rails, hangers, scales, DOs, chairs, stationary.... It feels a bit like moving house!
The warehouse is packing the last of the clothes into boxes, then we just need Kerian to deliver the other rails and the lorry will be ready to go.
We have the green light to open on Saturday morning, now all we have to worry about is getting everything up to the shop and making it all look nice.
A couple more late nights for the Bristol team and then all the hard work will come together and we will open the doors.
Hayley is setting up the sample sale on Brick Lane right now, and the boys are on the way down in the vans with the clothes.
Our friends at Rough Trade records (right by the site of the sample sale) will be offering 10% off to anyone who's been to our sale! What a brilliant offer.
Rough Trade is a great little record shop, and they happen to have a load of Rough Trade t-shirts that were printed up by the boys in our printshop, so check that out...

While ade and his team truck on getting the shop in Bristol set up, the boys and girls down in the warehouse are picking and packing stock out like crazy for the grand opening.
Thousands of items to go out. Only 5 trollies.
They ran out of trollies the other day, and started using the big post cages.
