Cycling is a family affair for Superted. Riding around London with his dad and brother, Ted entered his first charity ride at nine years old, doing thirty miles on a 20 inch wheel, five gear mountain bike. With the miles and contests came lots of broken bike parts. Ted discovered a curiosity for repairing not only his bike, but others as well, and took a gig as a mechanic at age 16.
Dabbling in skateboarding and BMX, Superted soon started riding a fixed gear bike and adapted his old tricks to his new bike. He hooked up with Fixed Gear London, and loves the camaraderie of so many cyclists coming from so many different backgrounds within the movement. Still in London, Ted has his own workshop for building and repairing frames. He is working on a number of projects including the development of some new parts. He loves everything about bikes and hopes to ride for the rest of his life. Ted’s colorway of the Nike Air Zoom Tiempo with Nike Sportswear will be available in the US in Fall 2009.
