The fourth annual Pushies Galore bicycle show takes place this weekend in Brisbane which, if any of the previous events can be used as a benchmark, will prove to be the most memorable yet. A few surprises will be unveiled at the show, one of which is this pursuit bike, modified and customised by an industrial designer named Brad Marshall. Read More »

PEdAL ED

Shop visit: PEdAL ED

Adjoining the Brooks England concept store in London’s Seven Dials, B1866, is a presentation of cycle wear by Japan’s Hideto Suzuki. To be honest, I hadn’t really had a close look at Hideto’s PEdAL ED range, so I was thankful for a visit to the boutique to check the gear out for myself. Read More »

Cherubim by Kinoko

Cherubim by Kinoko

The 2014 Tour de France is about to descend upon the Yorkshire Dales, coinciding fortuitously with a greatly anticipated holiday to the UK to visit my wife’s family. It’s been a great opportunity to meet with some of the characters and locations that inspire the world of Cycle EXIF, including London’s Kinoko Cycles, where I encountered a striking example of Shin-ichi Konno and Cherubim Cycles.

Gear: Chrome Forged Rubber

‘The Best City Sneaker In The World’ is a big claim but I wouldn’t put it past Chrome Industries to make it. With a reputation already built on making some of the most robust products available to the modern rider (or skater, for that matter), Chrome has just released a line of footwear that promise to challenge all competitors.

FYXO Fauxnago V2.0

FYXO Fauxnago V2.0

The Melburn Roobaix, now in its ninth year, is shaping up to be the biggest yet. The limited spaces have already sold out, so the 29th of June 2014 will see a maximum number of cyclists traversing the cobbled laneways of Australia’s cycling capital, Melbourne. One of the prizes up for grabs is this extremely rare Fauxnago — Master of Skids. Read More »

BMC Time Machine x Kronk

BMC Time Machine x Kronk

Aerospoke rims, at this point in history, will conjure up a variety of extreme emotions for different riders. We live at the tail end of the ‘fixie’ phenomenon; thankfully there are now a heap of people who are riding bikes than before, and cycling culture is far richer for it. This may be the last colour co-ordinated conversion you see on the pages of Cycle EXIF, but a collaboration between Kronk, a Johannesburg illustrator, his local bike shop and a BMC Time Machine is a high note to finish on.
