Tour de Ville Grand Opening 13th December
20.11.08 by Buffalo Bill

Jos by Will

Jos is my favourite exenger. As some of you know, Keith and he have been running a business selling bikes, frames and nice bits out of Jos’ flat up in Tottenham for a while. They have now obtained premises ‘somewhere near London Fields’, and are planning a grand opening on Saturday 13th December. Not too many other details yet, but they say that we should expect an alleycat and a party.

Just in time for me to pick up those Binda toe-straps that I have been promising Mrs Buffalo for Xmas!

And I should mention that this picture of Jos is taken from MT forum regular Will’s collection of photos of London fixie riders. You can view the whole selection (including two of London’s most reviled exengers) over here.

  9. @ Sebastian.

    We’re not ‘fixed’ on anything. Haha I made pun.

    No seriously it’s going to encompass a lo more than just fixed gears.

  10. I wish there was a shack that would help folks from the Forever Broke camp… Most of the Hackney shops are stocking only new items, and give me the pariah look when asked for anything second hand.
    Spoilt by gentry I guess ;(

  13. Errr. There’s quite a few non-track items in that shot.

  14. @ bill.
    apart from the double chain-ring and the shoes (total 3 things, even if you count the shoes as 2 indiviual items), all that will go on a ‘fixed’ like sebastian says.
    nothin wrong with fixed shops as long as the staff dont seem to think that they are more important than the punters…….good luck

  15. Jos actually is more important than the punters!…. thankfully he behaves in exactly the opposite manner and is charming and helpful…..Keith’s alright I ‘spose as well.
