We were lucky enough to be given the bike for testing in Switzerland and Italy in August. […]

Up close and personal: TomTom Bandit

Up close and personal: TomTom Bandit

New to the market the Bandit is the latest product from the long standing SatNav, software and hardware company TomTom. Diversification is the name of the game these days and with the SatNav market filling it’s reach, TomTom have been branching out in various directions. So it was only a matter of time before it reached the action camera market with it’s GPS experience. First impressions were that it was a little bulkier than some of the already available units […]

New in: Taurus components

Steven Walker from Taurus mtb components just sent us over a couple of new offerings for test – A pair of sleek looking “flatline” pedals and a Ti Spring. Steven is a engineer by trade and has years of experience across a plethora of riding and racing disciplines, which has led him to establishing Taurus components. We’ll be running these pedals on a few bikes – DH, trail and even a fixie in London ( Trust us ). Steven has […]

Giddy Up! We test the new Transition Scout

Giddy Up! We test the new Transition Scout

The industry and its riders love a pigeonholing of bikes and components, so straight out I’ll say the Scout sits squarely in the “Riding and having a laugh” category. We’d previously taken the wagon wheeled Transition Smuggler for a spin, which we loved. Again courtesy of the guys at Pedals in Edinburgh we had another of the new Transition Giddy Up bikes between our legs, in lurid limeade to brighten up the early spring gloom in the tweed valley. Unlike […]

Day 2 at the new school- Trek Remedy 9.8 29 Review

Day 2 at the new school- Trek Remedy 9.8 29 Review

Following up on my head to head review of the new Transition & Banshee, the next weekend was time to take the 3rd of 3 out to test; the Trek Remedy 9.8 29. To be honest I didn’t expect to be able to track down such an elusive beast for a test, but thanks to a bit of Twitter detective work, Criterium Cycles came up trumps with the managers own bike, which was also available for demo, or in this […]

Welcome to the new school- Transition Smuggler v Banshee Phantom Review

Welcome to the new school- Transition Smuggler v Banshee Phantom Review

This wasn’t meant to be a bike test, all I wanted to do was demo a few bikes that I wanted to buy for myself to help me decide. But in deciding what I wanted to buy, I needed to jot a few notes down on each bike, which quickly became me sharing my thoughts on some random bike forums, which then led to me doing something I’ve not done in the best part of 3 years; picking up the […]

Rapid Racer Products “EndurOGuard”

Rapid Racer Products “EndurOGuard”

It doesn’t seem that long ago that the only options for keeping trail splatter out of your face was a makeshift piece of discarded inner tubing and a few zip ties fashioned around your lower crown and the brace of your fork. Later on, there was the floppy moto style of the THE fender…which to be honest got a bit distracting as the amount of movement in that thing didn’t quite help with front wheel placement on the trail. As […]

New Product “Miles Brake Pads”

New Product “Miles Brake Pads”

Fitting new brake disk’s to your bike always requires new pads, result, as just as I bought the new disks Jamie from G14 distribution got in touch about these new Miles brake pads that he was importing and asked if I’d be up for trying them out. Well I’m always looking to try out new stuff and accepted the kind offer, the ones I had to try are aimed at the growing Enduro/all mountain bike market but DH versions are […]

safesportid pro

safesportid pro

If you’re like me, working mad hours and chasing after everyday family life, you find it hard to get those group rides in with your mates. You’re now tending to get the miles in alone. It’s getting closer to winter and those solo night rides are also kicking in. Not only do I have to tell the wife exactly where I’m going but I do have to hold back just in case I stack out in the middle of a […]

Tenn: Expresso Short Sleeve Jersey

Continuing on with the Tenn Outdoors theme, we move on quickly to the Expresso Jersey. Expresso by name and expresso by nature…meaning it’s made from coffee! “The Espresso trail riding jerseys are made from recycled coffee grounds, yes coffee as in the drink! When permanently embedded into the high wicking fibre used to produce the jersey, coffee produces some amazing natural properties ideally suited to cycling, such as increased UV-Protection, fast drying and enhanced odour control. You won’t smell like […]
