What does your bike get up to when your not looking? Well I guess this show you… maybe I should just check on my bike, check it hasn’t gone ride about.

Crumpler Perth

So today I went to the city to hang with a friend. That never happened. She didnt turn up. So I walked around Perth. Bought an Against Me! ticket from 78 records. Walking back along Hay St I spotted the Crumpler store, which is tucked away on Shafto Lane.

Being on the lookout for a new bag I went in to find a much bigger store than the store I had found in Sydney. Got talking with the lovely guy that worked there. Talked about riding fixed/single speed/brakeless/helmets/him going to Japan and about Bike Jam. Bike Jam are a group of cyclists in Perth who have various night rides and have gatherings and the like. Looks like a good group.

Anyway got some stickers and George gave me a pouch which is the perfect size to fit my phone and iPod, together or either one by itself. Quite handy really.

Didn’t grab any photos of the store. I’ll see if I can take some when I go back to purchase a bag. Did get some photos of the lovely stuff I got.
