Here comes the weekend! Another week of toil done; but before we down tools and saddle up, here’s the Fresh Goods, it’s Friday!
Cannondale Trigger 29er 2
The Trigger 29er 2 is Cannondale’s Overmountain big wheeler with “dual travel and dual personalities”. The frame features a Fox Dyad shock with cable remote to allow on the fly adjustments between 80mm and 130mm depending if you’re climbing or descending and is matched with a 130mm Fox 34 Float CTD fork up front.
Drivetrain is a SRAM X7/X9 2×10 mix with Magura MT2 180/160mm brakes providing stopping power, wheels are a Formula hubs matched to WTB Frequency Race 32 hole rims and come in 15mm thru axle front and 142x12mm rear flavours. A big, roll over everything stiff thing with a short’ish wheelbase. We like.
Shewee Valentines Gift Pack
What do you get the girl that has everything? (including cystitis? – Ed). With Valentine’s day around the corner, Sim shows he knows how to treat a lady with this beautifully packaged collection from Shewee. Featuring an exclusive red Shewee with a pink case, outlet pipe and X-front pants with a free pack of Lovehearts, ours also comes complete with the Peebol absorbant pouch (extra £5.15)
Lezyne Femto Lights
Dave’s been packing a pair of Femto Drive lights through the winter as insurance against getting caught out by the short days. Small, packable and reliable, what’s not to like? Now you can get a pair free with a Singletrack subscription (while stocks last).
Price: £21.99 or free with a Singletrack Subscription
Muc Off C3 Ceramic Dry Lube
Muc Off’s C3 ceramic dry lube is a biodegradable low friction coating which includes Boron Nitride Compounds, Fluoropolymers, Nano Ceramics and an integral UV tracer dye. When used with the supplied torch this makes checking you’ve correctly applied the lube to each link a doddle. We’re a big fan of dry lubes with 10 speed set ups so are looking forward to seeing how this performs.

Fi’zi:k M5 UOMO Mens
Back to the future with this pair from Fi’zi:k. High friction rubber treads for extra grip and Fi’zi:k Superlight Insole – ask anyone about fashion in a hundred years and these will be top notch.
Lake MX100 Tour&Trail
Solid as a rock. If your feet get wet with these on, you have the right to feel betrayed. It’s got a thick, Nylon SPD sole and RipStop softshell, and we’d be impressed if you can tell it’s a cycling shoe from a quick glance.
Lake MX160 MTB
This is a more classic version from Lake, and they claim it’s “the perfect shoe for indoor training and outdoor action”. If you don’t fancy the traditional black colour it’s also out in silver.

ODI Sensus Lock On Kit
Everyone might lose their grip under certain circumstances, but not on the bike with this kit. Red Bull Rampage winner Cameron Zink has apparently designed it – bet you didn’t know that.
ODI SDG Lock On Kit
When Odi met SDG the result was a 130mm lovechild Lock-On featuring circular ribbed dampeners to provide plenty of grip. Available in purple and red, black, aqua and lime green to match SDG Duster saddles.
Halo Vapour XCD front and Supa Drive rear 29er wheels
The Halo Vapour wheelset is a light XC/Trail orientated setup which features tubeless ready 26mm rims and sealed bearings hubs. Weights are a claimed 822g front and 969g rear; the XCD comes equipped for either 15mm thru axle or 9mm qr and the Supa Drive rear can be ordered in 10mm qr, 10x135mm, 12,135mm or 12x142mm thru axle.

Topeak iPhone 5 drybag
Jumped on the iPhone bandwagon and bought an iPhone 5 yet? This Topeak drybag is designed for exactly that. It keeps your phone both weather resistant and shock protective, and of course the phone’s touch screen is still responsive inside the bag.
Topeak Modula Java Cage
Are you one of them who always needs a cup of coffee before you go out biking in the morning? Well, if you want you can now combine the two. This java cage can be adjusted to fit your cup, so you never have to worry about finishing your drink first. We’d still recommend to take a short break when you take a sip though.
Topeak Defender Rear XC11
No, it’s not an air guitar silly, although it’s got almost the same weight as one. This lightweight fender will prevent the dirt falling into your cup of coffee (presuming you already got the java cage and forgot to put the cap on, that is).
Fi’zi:k Tundra-2 Braided
According to Fizik the Tundra2 is “Developed for high performance. Made for snakes”. Weighing in at a mere 155g and featuring a nylon reinforced shell with carbon braided 7x9mm rails and a microtex cover; we’ll be passing this one on to Chipps “Anaconda” Chippendale for testing.
