Comments (15)

    I do a lot of solo riding, often at night.

    In July one of my friends lay unconscious on the Downs for over 3 hours before he was found.

    I’ll be buying one of those ICEdot things.

    I suspect that it will report a lot of people not moving much in the local cake shop / pub (delete as appropriate)……… 😉

    About time the Beaver got the EXO protection and got a bit wider. Excellent stuff

    only if you crash your head into the cake shop first.

    Bigger Beavers this winter… a fab tyre just got better 🙂

    You still need a phone signal with the crash sensor, not always an option here on the Quantocks.

    oooo where are those exo beavers for sale? ace tyre but it was too fragile

    possibly predictable, but £26 for a chain is not a bargain.

    The intense is quite possibly the most right looking bike I have clapped my eyes on….

    What’s the book like? Seems like a decent stocking filler…

    Totally agree with heebyjeeby, the Intense just looks right and that’s not something you can normally say about a 29er…

    Any ETA on the bigger Beavers?

    “5934 8878 5164 7326 4070”

    Is this meant to mean something? A hidden code, per chance?

    Have to say there is some logic in the ICE device
