Here’s to the weekend! Yay! But first let’s hit up the Fresh Goods…

Trek Slash 9

Slah and burn

What’s better than going to BikePark Wales? Going to BikePark Wales and getting to bring home two new bikes.

Here’s the new Trek Slash 9 we’ve got to play about on for the next few weeks. It’s a totally enduro focussed 27.5 bike that’s bang on the 1×11 trend and according to intern Dan it’s “pretty good”.

A bit of shoulder warmth for the lady. Made from the purest of the Shetland wool from Todmorden Hills (and made here too). It’s a knitted shrug that packs up into its own knitted bag, ready to deploy at the lunchtime tea stop or after-ride pub, covering arms and shoulders from the chill of the mountain air.

  1. It’s not fair to show bikes with all of those stem stackers under the bars, a quick swap the other way and they will look 800 times more Gnarr.

    Science fact.

  2. £280 for a gravity dropper!! WOW that’s inflation!!

    I paid £148.50 in 2006 from riverside cycles

  3. For £4300 those Treks ought to be “all right”.

  4. £75 for a phone cover!

  5. …meanwhile On-one sell Reverbs this week for £150.

  6. £709 for an mobile phone!!!!!! (iPhone 5s 64gb)

  7. That Slash 9 just looks… right.

  8. The Juliana frame looks just like the new SC Bronson or Tallboy2.

  9. So what is the difference between an enduro bike and a “technical trail bike” then?

  10. We’re going with colour…

  11. Any comparisons between the Remedy 9.8 and the Remedy 29er?

  12. What flavour of Forks are on the \9 ?? 160mm 2014 CTD’s ?

    Look forward to hearing how they ride!

  13. “So what is the difference between an enduro bike and a “technical trail bike” then?”
    Ones hair and the others fur!

  14. £45 for sleeves????? is that correct a Shrug?

  15. I’ve often thought a Shrug might be better in some ways than arm-warmers. Any thoughts Chipps?

  16. The Luminator is brill. Lumen 800 would make great headmet light partner. Santa?
