Testing New Wheels and Some PB’s

It’s always difficult to do a proper test of new parts or new kit for the bike. There are always so many variables at play that it’s not easy to say for sure whether or not these things make a difference, especially when testing in the real world and especially when you don’t have a...

Hardtail Loving

It’s been a busy week so far this week and we feel as though we’ve barely had time to catch up after our weekend away. Today was just as busy. I started off the day with some website work on the computer, and then went out for a hard, 10 mile run. It wasn’t that...
