It’s that time of year again! This year we’ll have a selection of bikes from Santa Cruz, including the hotly anticipated Tallboy LT; a full size range of Scott Spark 29ers; a Transition Bandit 29, Kona Honzo and our Jones, keeping it real and steel…


This is what we’ll have:

Santa Cruz:
Juliana Superlight Sml, Nickel Lge, Butcher Med, Blur TRc Lge, Nomad carbon Med
Highball alloy Med, Highball carbon Lge, Superlight 29 Med, Tallboy alloy Med, Tallboy carbon XL, Tallboy LT Lge
Spark 29 Expert Sml, Med, Lge, XL, Genius 20 Lge, Voltage FR30 if it arrives in time!
Honzo 29er 18″
Bandit 29er (yes, we do have a theme going here!)
Space frame cro-mo beauty
Fortitude Adventure all sizes, Core 26.5 16″, Core 24″

There’s a lot of competition for demo dates; most of the Transition bikes are away in Dalby forest or somewhere, likewise Kona…

Unfortunately the Surly and Salsa demo fleet isn’t ready yet – look forward to more of that in Summer… we will have our Pugsley there for the fat curious!

So… Fraser and Phil will be there on Saturday and Sunday, poised and primed to set bikes up for you, and take your orders when you find your perfect ride!

If you’d like to reserve anything, please let us know, we’ll do what we can!

We’ve finally moved into our new shop. The last few weeks have been crazy, getting the shop ready and moving everything from the old shop, but here we are at last…

I’d have liked to have had more posts detailing the move (and rides we’ve done, and new stuff we’ve got in etc, etc) but here’s a few pics to be going on with:

Luckilly Fraser and Ben popped by to help!

Amazing the things you find when you're moving; Rob discovers SSWC 2007 memorabilia

Thank you everyone who gave up their time to help with the move. Here's Mette, Jim, Gordon, Fraser, Rob, Andy and Ben - helping instead of riding (it was Wednesday night)

Some 29ers, clothing and a flying road bike

We have stuff displayed!

A quick update on some new arrivals in the shop – some are new to the world, some are just us catching up!

This is issue 6 of Boneshaker – beautiful illustrations, thoughtful writing – a feast for the eyes and mind. You can buy it from us for just £5 plus £1 p&p.

Didn’t think we’d see these for a month or so – Fox Talas 34 140 29er Forx – whoooo!!!

Now, which bike will they go on? Salsa Horse Theif – that’s what I’m thinking!

Available next Spring-ish, order yours now! Let’s get planning that build kit!

There’s a lot of interest in Fat Bikes at the moment, and there’s no-one more interested than our Phil. This is his newly arrived Pugsley frame (Phil hasn’t seen it yet, he’s on his honeymoon – congratulations Phil and Fi!!)  We’ll keep you up to date with as it takes shape into a bike.

We’ve dabbled with Surly frames for years, getting the odd one in for customers here and there, and keeping a decent selection of bits’n’bobs in stock. They’ve been the choice ride of Phil and Duncan, formerly the fixie twins (more on that later) for a while, so some sort of commitment to the brand seemed in order. So… look out for an Ogre and a 2012 Karate Monkey as soon as they’re ready. Oh, and we’ll have a Pugsley available to demo, so you can see what all the fuss is about…

Last but not least, we’ve got some more Green Oil products in. Check out the Eco Sponge – it has a Baah Code label, ha ha!

Just tried out their Clean Chain degreaser – it’s an “anti-lube” – apply it to your chain, ride around for a while (I liked that bit) wipe, then rinse off. I’m going to put some SuperDry chain wax on then use the Eco Sponge to polish my Green Halo (TM) until it gleams as much as my chain.
