We’ve been wearing these Endura overshoes non-stop over the unusually long rainy season with April showers being more like April downpours these have been called into action more than we’ve wanted! The good news is that they perform excellently, the neoprene is so thick that it keeps you warm and dry yet is tough so no clips or boa wheels have punctured or worn the surface. The fixings are also strong enough to allow you to get the cuff tight around your leg. We would definately reccomend these.

Brick Lane Bikes have brought in a range of YNOT bags. YNOT are a canadian based bag and foot retention manufacturer. We tested out the ‘Bandicoot’ from their new range. Named after the marsupial this is very much a pouch, nice and compact for days when your travelling light. Its minamlist in its construction so don’t The mini messenger bag is something we all endorse and there isn’t enough on the market! Get yourself to BLB or headover to YNOT.

Today was the first time I truly got to test the Endura Overshoes capabilities. Knowing Endura I had massive faith but with the recent London weather and added exposure of today’s ride I knew this would be a stellar test. I was not disappointed these seriously keep the weather out, this is through a combination of good fit and great materials. What set’s these apart is the looks, black is always the safe route but these drew some real envious comments from the hoardes of roadies, having a new piece of kit generally makes me feel like im somehow riding faster but with snug feet and knowing I had to back up the silver flair with some decent riding i’m pretty sure I was on this occasion.
(if your wondering what the weird lump is, its not my troll feet, my shoes have the boa system to tighten)
Great post Christmas suprise to have the Chrome Union shorts arrive. I tried these on briefly today and the fit is incredible, light understated, incredibly stretchy, bang full of features, great cut thats trim enough yet casual and makes the post ride pint a bit more bearable with the lycra wrapped package and nappy bottom hidden. Looking forward to testing these in the field and giving a full review when they have been through some miles.
I can truly endorse these tyres, the Panaracer Ribmo; i have them on all my bikes, 25c on the Brooklyn, 23c on the Leader and a 25c folder at the bottom of my bag on long rides. The best wearing tyre i’ve found to date. Glad Urban Velo agrees. Nice little review and imagery of them over there, check it out.
BLB sent us a sneak peek of their new hub. Fully CNC’d alluminium shells and lock nuts as well as long life bearings.
Im looking forward to checking these out. Look out for some more pic’s soon.
Been riding these BLB straps for about 4 months now and they are RAD!
They are comfortable, secure and look neat. The mechanism is a whole lot simpler than any other straps I’ve used with no fiddly buckles or fittings. They bolt together either under the pedal, or attach to the pedal and consist of just two pieces of overlapping velcro, making them super easy to adjust for a good fit.
I actually ended up giving away my Holdfast straps because I preferred these, and since they are half the price of Holdfast’s I would choose these every time.
And this is how they look new on a pair of green BLB pedals!
The guys at Chrome sent me over a set of their Dresden shoes to try out and air my thoughts on. So here’s the before, before the after! I will put these things through their paces and present a decent review in the coming weeks. First impressions are vital and mine are only good. Chrome have to be commended for taking on some of the more established footwear names. The detail and quality packed into what is a very simple looking shoe is amazing. I love the metal finishings, the 3M strip and the long forefoot area that wont get mixed up with foot retention. I can vouch for the fact that these are akin to Converse in their sizing so go a size down. More to come, and thanks Chrome.
Spank joined are list of sponsors last month, and I have personally been testing my products out for the last month or so.
I have to say they are pretty amazing, We got sent their Tweet Tweet Line products and they are just brilliant. The colour on them are fantastic. The rise is fantastic and the length can’t get much better.
Most of us Freestyle are getting our new frames this week and will be throwing these lovely spank parts on to our new builds so be sure for full reviews from all of us.
720mm length a are brilliant, I’ve left mine uncut and they give so much leverage.
3″ rise sits perfectly, the sharp quick rise looks amazing as well.
The strength of these bars are fantastic. They are the stiffest things I’ve ever rode.
Thanks Spank! Really happy with the parts.
