Here we go; a serving of nice Fresh Goods served up before the weekend comes.
Genesis Croix de Fer
Web boy Patrick has a new Bike to Work commuter machine; the Genesis Croix de Fer. Disked up, drop barred and with a Reynolds 725 frame it’s a true all rounder.
In his quest for bike maintenance post apocalyptic self sufficiency Sim’s taken delivery of this Unior Tools home toolkit. There isn’t a job he can’t manage form the comfort of his own home now. We’re all sending our bikes his way to give it a good testing.

We’ve had two sets of Sram’s XX1 groupset drop in the office this week and we’ve all been busy avoiding any Spinal Tap quotes. Single ring with massive range cassette is it the future?
Price: If you have to ask
Rockshox SID RCT3
100mm of solo air 29’er travel are offered by these SID RCT3 forks. 32mm stanchions, motion control, a claimed weight of 1322g and the new RCT3 damper with Open, Threshold and Lock adjustments. Chipps is going to be getting his XC on with this pair.

Motorex Maintenance Products
A care pack from Raleigh has arrived full of Motorex lubes and cleaning product. Guess that means we’re going to have to clean and love our bikes more.

Fresh from the printers it’s issue 80 of Singletrack. You can get it on the newstand but why not subscribe?
Gore Bikewear Goodies
The golden haired Ben from Gore dropped by the office with a lovely helping of Tic Tac flavoured bike wear that’s going to brighten up our photoshoots no end. First up are the Alp-X Shorts (£119.99) and Alp-X3 jersey (£89.99) guaranteed to keep you safe during hunting season.
For a bit of opposite colour we’ve also got the Fusion Trail shorts (£79.99 ) and Countdown 2.0 Jersey (£64.99).
Probably the lightest jacket we’ve had in on test, the Alp-X Windstopper Active Shell Light (£139.99).
If you can’t cope with the orange and green how about the Path Tyre Jersey (£59.99)?
No? How about one more Tic Tac Fusion 2.0 jersey (£74.99) then?
