Ok, so you need a bike just for running to shops, going down the park, yadda, yadda. Nothing fancy, just something to get from A to B. So I've that old Marin Indian Fire Trail frame...just needs a paint, maybe Will can do a bit of airbrush work on it. Now the frame looks very cool, maybe pick out some nicer parts from my bike jumble stock, nothing fancy. But I don't have any forks...those Exotic carbon rigid forks look very nice and they come with an orange sticker that kind of matches the fire nebula airbrush detail. And maybe a pair of orange anodised jockey wheels would just finish it off...nothing fancy.

I bought this bike light a few years ago from the massive yearly bike jumble at the National Cycling Centre. It's sat around in the garage for a few years until I decided I needed a bedside lamp and thought it would make an excellent basis for one. I know it says desk lamp but really I can use it anywhere where a little extra, if a tad yellow, light is needed. See the Instructable here

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 visit.
