Fresh Goods Friday
Every Friday we feature all the kit, clothing, bikes and general unsolicited bits and bobs that arrive at our door. It heads through the often unflattering filter of our unique FGF photographic style policy before being considered for onward full review. Be prepared for shocking poses and facial expressions and as a supplier, we invite you to send us your latest products at your own risk – the results may not be what you expect.
What is Fresh Goods Friday?
It’s Singletrack’s long running, weekly roundup of all of the new products that have been sent in to the magazine.
Where do all of the goods come from?
They’re sent in by bike companies and marketing agencies
What happens to all of the products?
They’re featured and then some are reviewed down the line in either Singletrack World Magazine or in online reviews and photoshoots.
What happens to them when you’ve finished with them?
They’re usually sent back after review, or kept on long-term test bikes. But no one ever asks for shorts and shoes back. Trust us on that. Once we were asked to return some brake pads.
