Commencal Super 4.1 - going toe-to-toe against the Orange ST4 in next issue's head-to-head test.
Lezyne CBL 10 - yes it's a multitool with carbon fibre accents. For a feature in issue 48 currently dubbed "Handbags".
A very special shock for Benji's Cannondale Prophet MX. It's made him quite excited.
A bolt-thru rear hub for Matthew's Orange Alpine 5 (he's finally persuaded Orange to give him a bolt-thru swingarm for it).
We suspect the "winning" bike in the Commencal-v-Orange head-to-head test might be decided on preferred colour scheme.
Our coffee machine has been repaired. Huzzah! Bring on the caffeine-induced trembling and paranoia!
Lotsa headsets from Cane Creek. It's stuff like this (and boring bread-and-butter drivetrain bits) that we're always struggling for when we're building up bikes.
Bontrager Rhythm Pro wheelset. Nice wide rims with normal QR hubs.
More stuff for the "Handbags" feature. The new Blackburn Mammoth 2Stage pump and some Park Tools Allen key and screwdriver sets.
Stormtrooper-esque leg armour from SixSixOne.
SixSixOne p*sspot helmet. We've noticed a lot of people opting for these sorts of helmets for riding in chilly conditions.
SixSixOne Evolution full-facer for Benji (who's never really had a full-face helmet before).
SixSixOne Evo knee pads. Filled with "magic gunk". Squidgy and comfy when riding but goes hard upon impacts.
Salsa Bell Lap bars for Matt's cross bike commuter. His needs-wider-bars mantra extends beyond mountain bikes.
