Damn you rain...



It has been raining almost non stop for two weeks. The rain didn't stop the riders from LFGSS getting some training in this weekend, but it would be a little annoying if it rained the coming Sunday. Although it would make things that extra bit exciting!

SCS Roller Racing


As I'm sure you're all aware, we're eagerly awaiting the weekend of 'The Hunt'. We have an action packed weekend for everyone including racers and spectators alike...

Even if you're not involved with racing The Hunt, we still want to get you on a bike and burn out your legs.

SOUTH COAST SPRINTS are bringing their roller racing rig and party vibes down to the race and the evenings festivities at LMNH. They'll get you pumped up to race your mates with loud music of your choice ranging from Motorhead to some Rawkus Gabba Techno... We met them at Bespoked Bristol and they're a hoot. They will make you push yourself until you puke (if your that competitive that is)


Come down and join the fun... We look forward to seeing you there...

Chris's Custom Parlee Singlespeed


A few weeks back I met with Chris, the UK agent for Lightweight wheels and Parlee cycles. He mentioned he had quite a special single speed to show me.

New In from Chrome - The Anza Windbreaker & Cobra Merino Hoody



Chrome are famous for their bags but they also do a range of some really good clothing. As you would expect from Chrome they keep the styling simple with signature red graphics on black. And like the bags Chrome have added clever features to clothing without compormising style, such as a small pocket on the cuff of the Cobra Hoody and snap closing pockets on the Anza Wind Breaker. This is smart stuff.

 

New Levis drop + The 511 Skinny Commuter Crop Pants


The last drop flew out, we're pretty well stocked again now.

Rad new rack from WALD


WALD have been around for more than 100 years, their product range is pretty timeless and its not so often they release new racks. This offering is cleary cattering for the emerging market of cyclists who like to carry BIG stuff on racks. I'm one of those and will be looking forward to finding a bike to stick this rack on. Hopefully we will get a few of these Ewald’s 257GB racks in our next WALD drop.

The Dart Fully Built Photos





Jamie built the Dart up last week. We've had some quality time testing and we're really happy with the results. The Dart delivers serious speed with a easy to handle geometry. The oversized tubing means there is very little flex. 
The exciting thing about this frame is that we will be able to offer the frame and a carbon fork for under £300. Leaving you with more cash to for carbon wheels and Thomson hardware.

More Carbon Clinchers?






Yes, we're offering more carbon clinchers. Carbon clincher rims have been on the scene for a while now leaving some track bike riders very happy. On the road bike scene they are not as popular due to fears over inconsistent braking. The rims we import, like the Broby's are full carbon, there is no alloy braking surface. The braking surface is applied to the rim as a thin protective strip so the brake pads do not come in direct contact with the rim. So far we have seen no problems with braking or overall wheel strength. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 20mm rims, they're responsive, light and overall feel great and are wearing well. The deeper section rims give a more rigid ride, Andy Ellis has been putting the 50mm's to work on his 14TR and loving every minute. 

Rims come in 20mm, 38mm & 50mm profile. All come 28H standard. Rims start at £189.99 each. Wheelsets start at £520. 
All rims come with a UD weave finish as standard. We are offering a one year warranty on all of our  carbon clincher rims.
