Just recieved the following from Billy Savage, the man behind Klunkerz - I'm setting up for the Hollywood screening of KLUNKERZ at the 600 seat Vine Street Theater on Saturday, June 30th at 5:00pm near the corner of Hollywood and Vine. The screening is in conjunction with The Bicycle Film Festival (see below) and it should be quite a gas. Gary Fisher, and other members of the cast, will be in attendance. As you may know, the film was nominated for Best Documentary and Emerging Filmmaker awards at the X-dance Awards, and it won Best Documentary at The Durango Independent Film Festival. The Bicycle Film Festival is an truly an amazing event. The festival's founder, Brendt Barbour, is a fantastic guy with quite a story. He was a...

Last Saturday (24th March) saw the the first RetroBike meet of 2007, 27 members descended on the North Downs and had a blast around the trails. To read a full account of the day and see some pictures of the bikes on show read on or check out this thread in the Rides/Meets forum. The scene was set, the time was finally upon us, after nearly 4 months of pulsating expectation the day had arrived for the RetroBike Spring Meet 07. The previous months of secret training, the mass accumulation of parts from ‘the BAY’, the strict calorie control diet to ensure the retro Lycra did not cut off vital air supplies was over…..it was time to break out the GT-85, fill the not so retro camelbak and head to the rendez-vous in the...

We've had a number of excellent B.O.T.M.s over the past year and a half representing many different manufacturers, countries, materials and styles. Of all these outstanding rides the retrobike users have voted retrobikeguy's (now retroking #1's) Pace RC-100 to be the first ever Retrobike Bike Of The Year. Nice.

After much clamour and demand thought it was finally time retrobike got round to doing a jersey. Since my design skillz are weak thought it best I throw things open to the masses AND give you all something to do over Christmas rather than watch Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark for the 20th time. Go for any style you like - whether it be totally original or inspired by some old classics (Brooklyn anyone ;-) ). Remember nothing too garish - I want to be able to wear it. Download the template and post your designs in the forum here. I'll sort the creator of the winning design out with a jersey. Good luck!
I'd like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. It's been a great year on the site - let's hope next year is even better. Cheers John
After much clamour the retrobike world map is now online. Update your forum profile with your latitude and longitude and you will appear on the map. Happy mapping.
