Free Running Event


FREE ‘Freerunning’ event in Glasgow

Know the Score are holding a Freerunning event in Glasgow – FREE of charge - on Friday, March 19 between 9.30am to midday at The Arc gym at Caledonian University, 70 Cowcaddens Road..

Freerunning (also known as parkour) was made famous during the opening scene of the James Bond movie Casino Royale. Since then, many young people have been getting involved and Know the Score are offering you a chance to see a demonstration of this unique activity and be trained by two of Scotland’s premier coaches.

Freerunning is about moving through any environment regardless of obstacles. It's a non-competitive sport which combines physical strength, dynamism, endurance, critical thinking and risk assessment to move through even the most challenging urban environment.

If you can’t make the Edinburgh event, we are holding other events across Scotland, including Edinburgh, Dumfries, Dundee, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen and Inverness. There are only 30 places per location, so reserve your place right now by registering at http://knowthescore.info/talk/freerunningwithkts

Or, you can find out more information from our Facebook page at http://facebook.com/freerunningwithknowthescore

You don't have to have any previous knowledge of parkour – complete beginners are welcome.

Airbrushes Yes / No


Looking for some feedback from all our readers.

Been considering selling airbrushes and compressors for the past 6 months but cannot decide if i should or not, it would be only online due to space issues instore, as usual they will be well priced and we will have our usual speed service.

Comments are appreciated, a simple YES or NO will do


Fat Buddha almost never was


Was clearing out folders on an old hard drive and came across his piece of artwork, when we were deciding on the name we were having dinner at a chinese restauant in Houston Texas.

We had been buying vintage clothing for Flip in Dallas Tx, drove to Austin for the weekend and then drove onto Houston where we stopped at the chinese for dinner.

Came up with 2 names, Fat Buddha & Black monk, asked our printer John to come up with 2 logos and we eventually decided on Fat Buddha, so thats the history of where the name came from.
Fat Buddha started life as a T/shirt range in Flip, then called our company Fat buddha when we started distributing Belt Buckles for Silverstar & Rock Rebel.
The store came shortly after and then the website.




Logo without the orange face, at first it was going to be all white, but luckily we went with the orange.

Fixed Gear Bikes


Create bikes have evolved quite a bit over the past 18 months, this is the 3rd generation new improved 2010 version, 40mm rims give it a better look and the hubs are now sealed units which make it more reliable, the paint job is also improved, so all in all a better bike for £249.

We have our first delivery next week and the chrome version will be in the shop window from next week.

Cycling world gave it 7/10 and all reviews so far have been positive, it comes in either a 55cm or 59cm frame, so plenty of scope for riders of all sizes.






Unbroken.




London in October.

YESSSSSS
