Something for the weekend
BRIAN ROBINSON, PIONEER - The official launch of Graeme Fife’s book Brian Robinson, Pioneer took place on Wednesday at Look Mum No Hands cycle café in London. Robinson, the first British racer to break into continental racing and win stages of the Tour, was there alongside Fife and former British racing heavyweight, Sean Yates. The book is available here.
LAMBORGHINI RACER - Speed Bicycles has a beautiful collection of racers, including a special edition titanium Lamborghini (made by Speedwell of Birmingham).

THE FUTURE OF MAGAZINES? – Richard Branson’s new iPad venture suggests magazines are taking on a whole new form.
SADDLE HEIGHT - Eddy Merckx would obsess over the dimensions of his stem and seat post and fettle on the fly. It was to alleviate his chronic back pains, which seems to make the Cannibal even more legendary.
WOOL and ROLLERS – if the roads really are too icy, ride hard in the garage instead.
The FAEMA E61 - The coffee machine for cannibals.
