What with getting Issue 79 finished and most of the bike industry being down in that London at The London Bike Show it’s a slim harvest this week for Fresh Goods Friday.

Orange Gyro

Chipps has cashed in his Gyro

First up; Chipps has gone for an Orange Gyro to manage his mile munching desire for all round XC  long rides and adventures in 2013. The 6061 – T6 custom butted frame features 110mm of rear travel and comes with a 1.5in head tube so could take an Angleset if you’re that way inclined. We’re expecting to see a special shock and forks in the next couple of weeks so the bike can be built up.

Price: £1499.99

From: Orange

 Charge Faucet Plus


We’ve another Charge bikes, erm, bike in for review; this time the Faucet Plus. The 29er hardtail features a 6061 frame with semi-integrated head tube, Rockshox XC30 TM 100mm fork, an Alvio/Deore mixed drivetrain and Pro Max Decipher hydraulic 160mm disc brakes. As we’ve come to expect from Charge, the Faucet Plus comes equipped with 2.1 WTB Prowler SL Race skinwall tyres.

  1. Loving my new Gyro up here in Swaledale.

  2. What colour is that Gyro?

  3. It’s an Orange custom colour option. Officially, it’s ‘Burgandy Flip Flop’, though you might know it better as ‘Boy-Racer Clio purple/gold metallic’

  4. My old 5 could do with painting, that might just be the colour it needs.

  5. my laces need replacing on my shimano winter boots!!

  6. I’m not a 29er convert, but that Charge looks fab, and @ £800, nicely priced.
