Sky Ride 2012

I decided to try out the route this year, complete with sound system and trailer with A-board on the back. Here are a couple of photos off the web...



and from Ella who rode with me much of the way



Sadly the ride was a corporate exercise in advertising rather than a meaningful community event.

Sound System Rebuild

A couple of weeks ago the sound system got a makeover. Here it is in the original tatty green with the remains of all manner of posters and stickers all over it.





The old sticky-backed-plastic came off without too much difficulty, and much of the wiring was stripped out and tidied up.





The new covering of gloss sticky backed plastic went on without too much difficulty, though the finish isn't brilliantly smooth.



However, the general effect, with the new led reflector lights front, side and back is pretty good. I also managed to improve the bass end of the sound system by adjusting the crossover, resulting in a nice firm bottom end.



The system got it's first outing at last month's critical mass in Manchester.

Brox Compact vs Mini

Cars used to be a lot smaller. It's quite striking when you do find proper old cars just how small they are.



This old Mini really is not much longer than a Brox, and the green colour almost matches.



Photos from MOSI Mini Maker Fair.

P.S. the following day the Brox was actually longer with trailer...



Trundling home fully loaded...

"Medwinds Bikes go to Manchester"

Here's a variation on the advertising Brox Compact done for clothing company Medwinds.



And some shots of them in Manchester back in March 2011.

It's just a shame they had to stand in front of the machines in every photo...

Not a Brox but...

I know nothing about this home made 4 wheeler.

I found it here whilst doing an image search for Critical Mass
