I've been thinking about the disaster at Haiti. The situation's terrible there, and overnight seems to have got worse. They are still in trouble from the floods 18 months ago.

I know we're doing the paperclip bike, and that's good. But it might never get finished.

I want to give a good chunk of money, but things are pretty tight this month. So I'm going to build my 1954 Rudge fixed gear, yet another frame which I bought on impulse but never built up.

I'll then auction it with all proceeds going to the Disasters Emergency Committee. It might take a while, I don't know if I have a complete bike at the minute, but I'll try to finish it and put it up for sale next week.

Step one: tidy up the frame.
