What's a bike jumble? A bike jumble is a gathering of bike enthusiasts including hardcore road racers, mountain bike riders, vintage and custom bike builders, commuters, collectors of bikes and cycling memorabilia and people looking for a cycling bargain. Anyone selling anything bike related can have a stall and many stalls are taken up by cycle shops wishing to sell clearance stock or trade-in bikes, regular bike jumble traders who bring a wide range of bikes and parts they've collected and also people just looking for an opportunity to clear some space in their garage or shed. Bike jumbles are an excellent place to go if you're looking for the answer to a cycling question. People often bring along a part that they can't identify or have a bike build problem that they can't solve through the internet and need some input from people who share the same passion.

PROJECT X

This project was a warm up to keep me building over the cold months. As it turned out to be not such a bad Winter, it was easy to get out in the garage and get stuck in. I can be a bit of a fair weather bike fan, a big bike Jessie really. I've just uploaded a short film of the build on YouTube
When I saw this Planet X Kaffenback frame I loved the colour combination. I’d never taken much notice of them, but on closer inspection the CNC’d removable rear dropouts, disc brake mounts and really meticulous welding combine to make an exceptionally well finished and handling steel frame single speeder.
After going through my own parts supplies, I came up with the idea of whiting the thing up without going too far.
I’ve always liked Planet X as a brand. They have some really nice bikes and a massive choice. Also, they’re a Yorkshire based company with a headquarters that’s more gentlemen’s outfitters than bike shop. It’s well worth a visit.
