Hey, hey it’s Friday. Let’s get some Fresh Goods here then head off into the sunset….
125mm travel of airformed alloy, full suspension, kermit coloured, goodness. The Niner Rip 9 is kitted out with all the latest from SRAM; 140mm Rockshox Pikes up front and a 1×11 X0 drive train.
Fast, balanced and nimble trail bike? We’ll be pushing it to see just where its limits are.

Race Face Atlas Stem
Short and to the point. A 50mm stem for embracing the gnar.
Race Face SixC Riser
785mm of DH bomber proof carbon bar. With a 9º backsweep, 4º upsweep and weighing in at a claimed 225g they should be pretty sorted.

Vaude Corvara Jacket

A clock for your stem to stop that timeless ride feeling.

Lizard Skins DSP Grips
Chipps went all the way to Vegas and all he brought Grace back were these spankingly new DSP grips from Lizard Skins. Some people are never happy…
For the rest of us, they feature a foam core, wrapped with Lizard Skins’ super-tacky DSP material on the outside to give a grippy, but light grip. They come in 30mm and 33mm diameters and they’re out in October.

Ortlieb Velocity Back Pack
Jorjii’s been so busy watching Premium Rush, she’s taken to smoking roll ups, riding fixies and chatting away about double quicks in between downing endless espresso. This High Vis Ortlieb Velocity is a special for the UK market and should have her ready for her first alley cat. Or commuting into work.

Lazer Genesis CX Helmet
Cross specific helmet with removable cover? This one came FAO ‘Chipps Van De Chippendale’. Op op op, etc….
Fat Bike Inner Tubes
Can you puncture fat bikes? If you do you’ll need one of these huge inner tubes.
Price: Of riding a fat bike

That’s it for this week. We’re off out to roost the last of the summer brown pow before it turns to mush.
See you Monday for the Debrief…
