Despite having been open since around November, last Saturday (06/02/10) Stif had their grand opening at the new location in Summerbridge, West Yorkshire. Stif have been around for about 20 years now, spending most of their time in Headingley, Leeds. The new location makes sense because it’s right next door to their warehouse and there are also local trails for test rides (Stainburn is 10 minutes drive away).
It turned out to be quite a busy day, with demo bikes available from the likes of Santa Cruz, Yeti, Orange, Pace, Niner, and Scott. Steve Peat and Josh Bryceland signing autographs, and coffee and cake available.
The Stif Website will tell you what they sell.
I spy with my little eye…
An Orange prototype. They’re currently experimenting with 120mm and 140mm options, and it’s dubbed the Blood XC.
