This is what has been distracting me from my photography since getting back from Budapest. I enjoyed riding the retro single gear bikes so much in Budapest when I got home I dug out my Cinelli Black Rats Mystic from the garage and set to work to pimp my ride!


Amongst hours and hours of research I stumbled across the UK based wheel specialist, Drew at He made me a custom hand built wheel set to meet my requests. They are more than just pretty wheels, they are quite unusual - 28mm wide deep carbon rims that allow tyres to be ran at a much lower pressure giving a far better ride/ handling for when i'm racing around. The exact model I went for were "DM8 Superleggero Series SL-FiftyEight Super Fast Boys" track wheels.


If you appreciate bikes as much as cameras I would highly recommend you check him out!


I used this shoot to compare 3 lenses on the digital Hasselblad to see which focal length I prefer, 150mm Zeiss Sonnar f4 CF, 120mm Zeiss Macro Planar f4 CF, 50mm Zeiss Distagon f4 CF.


This was with the H3D-31 + 120mm Zeiss Macro Planar f4 CF @f4, 1/125, ISO 400 just before the rain came /


This is how the bike looked off the shelf in 2014 -
