I was lucky enough to ride the brand new blue trail Terry’s Belly at Bike Park Wales on Friday – and it’s cracking!
I was lucky enough to get one of the first batch of the new Flare Rider Co’s Roost DH jerseys, launched on the back of their successful Kickstarter campaign.
Are a decent pair of flat pedals good enough to convince me to switch from SPDs after 15 years?
Mudguards. They’re not very exciting, and some look plain hideous, but they can be pretty essential in the UK for stopping mud, pebbles and other debris hitting your face and body. So simple effective solutions that don’t deface or weigh down your bike are always welcome.
Ticking all of the above boxes, step forward the Bender Fender from MuckyNutz.
I have been a happy user of SPDs for years, but there are some times when I want to be unclipped – such as steep technical climbs at slow speeds. Conventional SPD pedals don’t allow for anything other than being clipped in, so step forward the Trail SPD pedal, which feature a cage around the normal SPD pedal.
It’s officially winter now, although the temperature is still pretty up and down, it’s definitely time for gloves not mitts. With that in mind, I’ve got a pair of Specialized Body Geometry Ridge Wiretap long finger gloves that I’ve been testing.
