Charge Duster 8

From: Charge

Introduced last year as a UK specific mud plugger, the new Duster 8 once again features a Shimano Alfine hub gear continuing the theme of simplicity and low maintenance. This bike is one of a number of bikes in the range to feature a galvanised frame finish. This finish, due to the nature of the coating, means that each individual frame has a unique look when examined closely and should be one of the most durable on the market.  RRP £1249.99

Speed Stuff Bullit Helmet

From: HoTLines

The Bullit helmet is made from a strong and lightweight one piece monocoque helmet body. It looked good until we found the additional, rear spoiler attachment that left us bemused. If you like Batman then this will suit you. But if it helps young kids wear helmets then it’s a good addition. It’s certainly one of the “larger vented” offerings of its type. RRP £64.99

Comments (19)

  1. Those fox 3/4s look good – shame bike clothing is so pricey though.
    Always had a soft spot for nicolai too – looking forward to reading the report.

  2. ooh I do like the look of those Gore FUSION SO 3/4 Pants.

  3. I am happy to conduct a long-term/permanent review on any of this kit if you don’t have the time!

  4. I’ve got one of those massive pedros tyre levers.

    But if you just use it to change tyres, you’re missing a trick (and the main reason I bought it).

    It’s the perfect tool to pop the seals out of forks easily, without scratching things etc.

  5. If I’m not mistaken, that Charge has authentic Salisbury Plain mud on it. CErtainly looks like the Plain!

  6. Captain, I’m afraid you’re mistaken. Thems is genuine South Downs clay. Right genre of mud though. Good going!

  7. It looks like the shock has been “pushed” to stop any unwanted bobbing. Also like the new Chris King environmental headset, B/B and rear hub. Can you review those too??

  8. the fusion camos pants are ace indeed. they hide the mud! warm too. had a few rides in mine now and loving them.

  9. Another Nicolai, they’re getting way too common ooop norf

  10. Chipps, how are the Raijins (on the Duster)? Was thinking of getting some of those myself…

  11. The Chris King ‘Woodsy’ headset and BB (and rear hub too if you look closely) will be reviewed soon, along with the ‘Metal’ rear shock 🙂

    The Raijins have been good tyres so far. I’ll be giving them more of a rant in the next couple of weeks.

  12. Did a blind man put the cables on that bike, gees why dont cycle companys make a tidy job if the bike is going for test,

  13. If you need some help testing those Pedros tyre levers – I’ll volunteer. If they were green even better

  14. what size mmmbop frame did you guys get? I’m stressing over which to order. (I’m 5’9, like em small haha) 16inch?
