My Brother

You probably don't know my brother recently lost his job working at a nameless lighting shop in town. In my opinion he got stooged pretty badly while he was there... anyway I digress. He's picked up a new job working at Ken's Self Cycles in town. I'm pretty pleased and proud of him.

Uni stairs... Me

As close to a graduation photo of Dave as you'll get...

Mountain bike number 3

Mountian bike number 2

Mountain bike number 1

This new job will be great with mountain biking always been a Jolly passion. To be fair Dave was the first really start riding but I was the one to start racing. I raced for a bit in the Tasmanian State Series and usually didn't to to badly. I eventually gave it away due to getting older, less time, bigger priorities, expense, injury the list goes on. Now I occasionally roll the legs over every now and again. Dave's on the other hand has kept up with it over the years which bides well for his new job. He starts this Monday. Pop in and say g'day.

Gotta be stoked with that result. Hope he gets into the bicycle lighting side of things.

It is Ken Self Cycles, not Ken's Self's.

Ken Self did some bike racing in Hobart. Tell me more about this.

Ken Self was the grand old man of bicycles in hobart. It was a privilege to know him and I was very sad when I knew he'd fallen off his beautiful black handmade bike in a veteran's race upon the domain and was killed. Ken's craftsmanship was legendary and he had a deep passion for building bikes. Ishiwata steel was his first choice in frame material. A great guy and a true gentleman.
