Here Be Essex Bike

Sadly my Moultons and various fixed wheels aren’t quite suitable for Wivenhoe Wood or the banks of the River Colne. It’s back to the future in oh so many ways – MTB included.

My days of two fixies and a track bike ownership are over. It’s a London North Essex thing, baby.

A built to budget bike from yer man Bob of, um, Bob’s Bikes SE17, and then come Saturday morning and the beast was ready to roll out. It was damn hard work, with the heavy tread making heavy going of the treacle like Walworth Road. Get me on that Wivenhoe Trail ASAP.

Front suspension, disc brakes and enough rubber to power a condom factory. I can’t say it’s gonna be a ride of choice, more one of circumstances. When in Rome.

Chapeau!
