Steel Style, the Timeless Beauty of Vintage

Steel Style - the Timeless Beauty of Vintage

Article Posted on Bike Exchange 10.04.18

A good bike - a good steel bike - is like a house.
Over time it’s loved and lived in, yet ultimately the owner is but a caretaker, adoring it and looking after it well enough so that it can be ultimately passed on, enjoyed and maintained by another who plays their part in this cycle of steel life.
Authentic vintage steel bikes were arguably designed and built equally for beauty as they were for performance. We’re talking to Mitch Roberts from Life on Wheels, who has had a passion for these steel beauties since they were, well, not actually classed as vintage....

Puncture Workshop Anyone?

Ladies and Gents - Were having a "Puncture Workshop!"
At Life on Wheels we want to get more people on bikes. We've listened and some of you would get out on their bikes more if they were confident in repairing punctures and removing or replacing wheels. Well, we have the answer! One evening soon, at 6.30 pm we will open the shop and give clear demonstrations on how to do the above. This will be in a friendly hands on atmosphere with no pressure and you will leave confident in your ability to fix that puncture!

Interested? Please in the first instance ring the shop to register your interest and we will organise the date.

Life on Wheels, Rondo Ruut CF2 Review
16 January 2018 | Post by Admin

Rondo Ruut CF2 Review

Well tonight I've just been for a quick 15 mile blast on the Rondo Ruut CF2 (full carbon gravel bike). In September at Rondo's launch in Scotland I rode the Ruut ST (the steel framed version) and its fair to say I was impressed, so impressed I ordered one there and then! Today, I jumped at the chance to try the carbon version that's just arrived at Life on Wheels as a Demo bike. Tonight in the dark, on cold damp roads and tracks with intermittent blasts of sleet and snow, I had a ball! Never have I felt so confident in a bikes ability, I was actually looking for the rough stuff to ride through just to exploit the superb sure footedness of this design masterpiece. Its quick, comfy, beautiful, solid, robust and a joy to ride. If I had to pick just 1 bike to have in the stable it would be a Ruut! It rolls along tracks and paths effortlessly and is just at home on the tarmac, the 38mm tires surprisingly having very little rolling resistance on the road. The big plus for me was the stability and grip, I do push bikes quite hard, especially down hill and into corners. The Ruut has absolutely tons of grip and actually surprised me with how hard I could turn it in in the wet, no twitching no matter who hard I pushed. All in all a truly wonderful piece of kit! Try it while its at the shop (we also have an ST in 56cm) you won't be disappointed!
