Anyone know Jimbo?


I can send Jimbo a message if you want. Choosing which of his bike to enter could be tricky though.


Definitely. He really should enter one. I'll send him an email as well; maybe we can convince him.

As luck would have it I have a Canadian manufactured bike that I've just finished, so I'll drop it in!

Has anyone saw the film Life Cycles? Is it a trashed Brodie near the end?

It's based in the burgundy region of Canada, 130 miles from the Canadian capital city of Paris.

Yep! French Canadian, the frames were designed/enigineered in France by Look, but actually fabricated in Canada

- I'm not 100% sure which company fabbed them up, whether a Look owned operation or another maker...

But the initials of the welder are on the top tube, in a little box next to a decal saying 'hand crafted by', with a square of clear vinyl over it

Some previous RB blurbs abouts Look steel MTBs:
