First off, one for the retro crew. Here’s Missy Giove’s bikes from when she was racing for Foes Racing. Although bolt-on seat masts seem to have fallen out of vogue, the rest of the bike looks pretty current.
Mmmm… linkagetastic – and how about that trailing arm for the MRP device?
Back up to the future now we have the Foes Fluid prototype. 8in DH bike which, in a first for Foes, will run any other brand’s shock. It features a 2.3:1 shock ratio, different to their normal 2:1 ratio and is intended to be a little more down to earth in terms of compatibility and will build into a £4,000ish bike with Boxxers. Weight? Around 36lb reckons Foes.
From one end to the other… Here’s the Foes fixie offshoot ‘Street Rods’ flat bar for city zipping…
From Foes to Fizik – or rather: fi’zi:k
And finally on to Conti. Not much to say just yet because they’re doing a big launch of a new model or two in a month or so. So here are a couple of hot-patch pictures.
