Quoc Pham Derby

Quoc Pham has these white crepe souled Derby shoes available made to order in sizes 42-47. Could these be the ultimate in cycling-chic dandyism? I think so. Curse my size 38’s….

I saw Quoc Pham at the Cycle Show in August and was blown away with the quality of his footwear. Using high quality leathers he has encapsulated the bespoke shoe look perfectly and tweaked it for around-town riding. Now, lets see a ladies fixed shoe please!

Raleigh Vektar

Anyone remember these? I seriously lusted after this bike as a kid, I used to visit a pals house and always hog it, he had the black “blackcat” version. So tough! Forget all your new-fangled carbon lightweight weenie road machines, back in the day all this little mini bianchista wanted was the ability to tune into some crummy radio station and fire off some sirens whilst riding along about 3 miles per hour down the road.

“The onboard computer features elapsed time, distance travelled, speed and maximum speed achieved.
