How does Friday come around so quick? We must really love our jobs…
So here’s the Fresh
schwag Goods that have landed this week.
It’s a bit belated but here’s Chipps’ ride for the 3 Peaks CX last weekend. A bike that weighs next to nothing, goes dead quick™ but was still let down by it’s engine failing to get it on the podium, eh Chipps? (was that too harsh?)
Fully SRAM Red’d up with hydro stoppers and Reynolds aluminium hoops, it could’a been a contender.
Especially considering the sneaky X-Fusion dropper post for skinny tyred but enduro style pinning it on the descents.
Price: £1800 frame only. This build £5700.
From: Upgrade Bikes
Dave’s going to be testing this Packa Shack, a tailgate awning you can strap to the back of your van for getting nekkid in and other purposes too probably…
Price: from £174.99 (Camper version)
