Fresh Goods Friday 206

September 5, 2014

It’s the first Fresh Goods of September – and autumn is making a tentative appearance deep in the valley. But never fear! Here’s a glimpse at the gear that’s come in to the office this week:

Pyga 110


We’ve got a Pyga 110 in for our next grouptest – 110mm of rear travel in a 29er with geometry set for fun…

No nonsense trail hurtlage

…ours comes with an SLX drivetrain, SIDs, and..


…a RockShox Monarch RT3 shock.

Price: £1749 frame and shock

From: R53

Shimano M200 shoes

Olive drab. Nice lace cover.

Dave returned from Eurobike with these tasty looking trail shoes. Twisty for walking, not bendy for riding, apparently. They also have a cord lacing system: Lush. Also, not available in this colourway in the UK (we can get them in black, with red and white detailing).

Orange sole detailing

Price: £149.99

From: Madison

Fabric Grips


We’re the first people to get these new grips from Fabric – grippy, comfy, lots of different colours. 80g, aluminium clamps, polypropylene barrel.

Price: £19.99

From: CSG

GoPro Dog Harness

Lassie’s let herself go… really, really let herself go.

In the absence of any dogs in the office today, Chipps manfully steps up to the plate to model this lovely dog mount for your favourite GoPro camera. Here it is in merciful close-up:

Camera not included

Price: £59.99

From: Madison

Knog Qudos GoPro video light


Waterproof to 40 metres, these lights come with two mounts for side-by side camera action, or a bit of tripod illumination.

Price: £89.99

From: Moore Large

VW T5 Kombi


After one last goodbye Eurobike roadtrip, Dave’s finally upgrading his ancient VW T4 Multivan for something a bit more modern and a little bit longer. Here’s his new T5 LWB Kombi which is destined to mutate into the Adventürebüs II. He’ll be blogging the conversion as it happens…

Price: Less

Right – that’s it for this week! The trails are surprisingly dry and ace, so we’re going to strap on some lights, and send Chipps gambolling off on all fours to find some kids down wells, while we hit the trails. Sayonara for now…
