Our first ride on the 2016 Whyte T-130c Works

Our first ride on the 2016 Whyte T-130c Works

Words: Alan Doyle – Photos: Ian Linton Can you “British proof” a bike? If you’ve ever visited one, Whyte dealers sell their bikes on the insistence that they are absolutely weather-proof. Just as well really as the Tweed Valley presented yours truly and tog Ian Linton with probably the heaviest downpour of the season, leaving us with a great opportunity to test this bike on one of its major selling points, exposing it to everything these filthy trails had to […]

Sunwise Chromafusion “Hastings”

Sunwise Chromafusion “Hastings”

A few months ago an email dropped into my inbox and the words “British made” caught my eye. It was from a British sunglass manufacture called Sunwise. So curiosity got the better of me so I clicked the link and had a gander at what they had to offer. Some pretty decent looking stuff I thought and the Hastings model caught my eye. I pinged an email back to Zoe and she kindly popped a pair of the glasses in the […]

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 […]

The new Orange Five is here..

The new Orange Five is here..

We’ve been hard at work on a new Five chassis which we believe is probably the best trail bike we’ve ever produced. As is our process we haven’t scrapped what works, but built on a solid platform of performance to create a new Five to overshadow every previous version. Where recently we’ve added features to suit new componentry, this one is a complete frame overhaul. We are showing the new Five publicly for the first time at Bike Place Show . We’re launching the new […]

Sombrio’s Never Dead

Sombrio’s Never Dead

Sombrio’s Dave Watson had a vision way back, when we were riding in MX and BMX cast offs, to set the bench mark for what we all wear today whilst descending toward the lip. Right now, Sombrio are having few problems and we can only hope in the fullness of time that the right people rise up and help this pillar of the free ride/dh scene pull though this. We wish Dave the best of luck and our fingers are […]

The OneUp Components 42T sprocket

Upgrade your 10 speed cassette to an awesome 11-42 wide range cassette with the OneUp Components 42T Sprocket at a fraction of the cost of going to 1×11 system…. The OneUp Components 42T Sprocket gives you 90% of the benefit of 1×11 systems at 10% of the cost. Incredibly simple to install, it fits behind most 11-36 cassettes, displacing one sprocket from the main cluster.
