Trousse à outils pour vélo Brooks England

Trousse à outils pour vélo Brooks England

Je connais des amoureux du vélo. C’est pas trop mon cas, mais ça ne m’empêche pas de faire une petite nouvelle sur une superbe pochette à outils en cuir conçue en 1896 et toujours produite. Je parle bien évidement de la Brooks Challenge Bag qui s’attache facilement sous la selle de votre monture et qui, de par sa fabrication, empêche vos outils de s’entrechoquer.

Les trousses à outils de chez Brooks

Brooks England a conçu plusieurs types de pochettes (Challenge Tool Bag, D-Shaped Tool Bag, Tool Roll, Millbrook, Glenbrook) à outils allant de 69€ à 145€ en achat direct sur leur e-shop. Je vous conseille vivement de visiter le site de l’équipementier qui, en plus de ces trousses à outils, produit toutes sortes de pièces pour votre vélo, ou pour votre Solex (;-)), telles leurs superbes selles mais aussi des snikers très tendances  pensée en collaboration avec la marque Vans : surtout si vous aimez le style vintage avec du cuir, foncez !

Brooks England ?

Créée en 1866 par John Boultbee Brooks, la marque se spécialise dès ses débuts dans le travail du cuir. C’est seulement en 1882 que l’entreprise basée à Birmingham produit sa première selle, dans l’optique de commercialiser un produit le plus confortable possible. C’est de cette manière que le petit atelier Brooks devint une entreprise à la renommée internationale.

Dans les années 1950, la marque anglaise partageait ses activités entre plusieurs secteurs : la production de selles et d’accessoires pour vélo, la production de bagages, et la production de meubles de bureaux. Brooks a ainsi traversé l’histoire sans que jamais l’héritage de l’entreprise ne soit remis en cause. L’esprit Brooks est toujours vivant ! Les techniques de production ont beaucoup évolué depuis la création de la marque, mais le savoir-faire s’est transmis de génération en génération afin de garder cette dextérité et surtout cette qualité dans le travail.

Ces dernières années, Brooks a pris part à une nouvelle course : faire vivre la marque, notamment en reprenant le slogan originel de la marque « Saddles, bags , etc. » et en présentant une gamme de selles et de sacs très proches de l’esprit de départ : pour preuve les supports papiers de l’époque dévoilent des modèles identiques à ceux proposés aujourd’hui.

  1. Hi there, I am new to running a blog and websites in general and was wanting to know how you got the « www » included in your domain name? I see your domain, « http://www.pleasureblog.net/trousse-a-outils-pour-velo-brooks-england/ » has the www and my domain looks like, « http://mydomain.com ». Do you know the easiest way I can change this? I’m using WordPress. Warm regards

    • Just create the www alias(cname) to your registar, change the value in tour wordpress and configure your htaccess to redirect your pure domain name to the www alias : really simple when you have the habit to manage hosting servers.

  2. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  3. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  5. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of « neighbors » will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune « Social » is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  6. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  7. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  8. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  11. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
