It’s Fresh Goods Friday!

BH Bikes Lynx 6 8.7 Alu

Lynx for men (and women)

BH Bikes have kindly sent in their snappily named Lynx 6 8.7 Alu for a bit of grinder testing. The bike comes equipped with 150mm Rockshox Sector up front and with it’s 66.5° head angle is aimed at ‘aggressive trail’. Stop and go is all Shimano, with an  XT/SLX/Deore 3×10 drivetrain and M505 brakes. finishing kit is largely BH Bikes own branded.

That split pivot in detail

The frame features a Dave Weagle designed split pivot floating suspension system  which “separates the acceleration forces from the braking forces caused by the suspension, thus reducing the excess compression of the suspension under acceleration -anti squat, and at the same time, reducing the excess compression resulting from the braking forces.”

    I’ve just stuck one of the absoluteblack chainrings on my 456! I’ve not got a clutch mech at the minute so I might run some minimal retention for now. They definitely look pimp.

    The Charge Scoop could be ideal for my winter bike; a saddle which is still wet and soggy from the previous ride is really annoying.

    That’s a decent selection of stuff!
    The M:Part XC Chain Guide looks like just what I need for my 1×9 as the chain keeps falling off….

    Sure i’ve seen that M:Part chain guide somewhere before:

    🙂 Got one on my CX and MTB – work superwell – highly recommended

    That M:Part chain guide also looks just like this one which is £13 cheaper!

    The Monkii Clip seems like almost the same thing as I got from Halfords for a bottle mount when I was about 10, only in plastic not metal.

    Jonnystorm careful that sort of comment isn’t allowed in the classifieds, let alone on fresh goods 😉

    810’s are a little flawed, but awesome. So many stats to analyse.

    Jorji is way hotter than Sim!

    I’m sure the suspension design is very clever, but but putting the shock in the firing line of the rear wheel, really?

    Nice clear cork boards around Jorji’s desk. How long will that last?

    Sim….’My name is Earl’

    Reference to eyes being shut not the mustache !

    Not that Sim has a mustache…Crap, this isn’t going well !

    Art Director with a single screen? Dual screen action for the modern office, surely.

    That chainguide looks identical to the one that came on my On-One Fatty. I don’t know how well they work as I immediately switched to 2×10.

    The Lynx bike actually looks like a can of their deodorant!
    Does it smell nice/cheap and tacky?

    are those t shirts printed in Yorkshire? I don’t think it’s been pointed out enough times…
