Brother's wedding reception yesterday evening in London so, in the day thought I'd visit a few bikeshops of which Velorution, specialising in European town bikes/Pashleys was the first.

Not that big, but an impressive selection of the unusual, including a Danish Biomega shaft-driven bike and a Retrovelo with creme coloured "Fat Frank" balloon tyres. Also a few Bromptons and Azors. There's also a workshop downstairs. A customer there took a Pashley for a test ride: I have to say, Pashleys look much better close up than they do on the internet and not just the Roadster - all of them have a solid quality look and the price seems reasonable compared to similar bikes, especially as they are made here. Unsurprisingly, the customer was impressed and bought it.

Well worth a visit if you like that sort of thing (and I really do) if you happen to be in Central London.

Have you seen the little video of the kid on the push-along bike on the site?

Dodgy owner though...

...don't like him. He posted some nasty stuff on his blog
yeah, he does seem to have a beef about UK cycling, but I have to say, there's plent mongish about it.

Heard him talking yesterday - not sure where he's from, but he 'ain't British.
