It’s Friday, again. So in a groundhog day sort of way let’s peruse the Fresh Goods that have dropped at ST Towers this week…
Mondraker Foxy XR
Jorji’s decided to get her enduro on with the Foxy XR, a 140mm travel ‘Zero Suspension System’ bike for everything according to Mondraker. It’s got a Race Face/Sram X7/X9 drivetrain and Formula T1 180mm stoppers.
Up front the forward geometry, 10mm stem and Fox 34 help get your gnar on and Maxxis Ardents give a grippy but fast rolling ride.
The Ride Journal 8
Filled with a head load of beautiful words, Issue 8 of the Ride Journal is available to order.

Embers Winter Quarter
Socks. Everyone needs socks yeah? And merino socks give that little bit more comfort and warmth when you’re getting your gruel on in the depth of winter.
Price: £22 for three
From: Embers Merino
Bahco Laplander and Hultaförs 800g Axe
Dave’s either tooling up for the oncoming zombie apocalypse (remember kids: Rule One is good cardio) or there’s going to be some subtle trail tweaking going on.
Price: Less for good running trails.
From: All good axe shops
Bluegrass Red Wolf Glove
Yellow is the internationally accepted enduro colour of fast for 2014 we reckon. Dave’s going to be sporting these Red Wolves and loving the minimalist design.
Buff Bandana Pro
Gore Windstopper winter protection for the bank robber or winter rider in your life.
Shand T Shirt
A T with a message from the Scottish purveyors of sweet hand built goodness.
Shand Cycling Cap
A cotton Rothera made cycling cap to tuck under yer helmet or combine with a roll upend tats for the courier look.

That’s it for this week. We’re off out to slay it man, and top off our ride with a round of the high fümpfs ja? Cos we’re all about the international melting pot of MTB terminology.
