Clyne MTB meeting

I went to another meeting for the Clyne MTB riders group last night to find out what progress had been made.

For those that don't know the group is working with Swansea City Council (and others) to promote cycling in the Clyne Valley. This includes trail building, BMX tracks and dirt jumps. There's more info at the website

There had been a delay but it looks like things are back on track now, hopefully work will begin on the revised route quite soon. The dirt jumps at Moos ( blog here ) are looking amazing.

The pump track/BMX track is a little up in the air, but progress has been made but I can't say too much until it is confirmed, but rest assured something is being done. If you want any info then call in the shop where I'm hoping to have an updated map of the routes and where everything is.

Here's a pic of Moo's to illustrate the work Dan and his mates have already done

Catch Up

There have been comments about the lack of blog posts. We're really sorry but we've been busy busy busy at the shop. There have been lots of very nice bikes brought in for us to fix :)

We do have some fresh stock in the second hand bike department, with a few more to add when they're ready to sell. There's a couple of clicky links to the right so you don't have to scroll through the blog to find the relevant post.

We've also been opening accounts with new suppliers left, right and centre, so we can now offer a huge range of parts to order.

We are agents for Mojo Suspension and TF Tuned Shox, which covers servicing of nearly all shocks and forks, with PUSH tuning also available. Just bring your bike in and we'll send the forks off to the experts. Typical turnaround is 48 hours, so we can have your fork back on your bike in no time. Call us for a quote.

The ride tomorrow is up Afan with the boys. Going to play on the final descent of The Wall :)

Special Offer

Need a new helmet for your bonce?  We have 661 Recon Helmets in stock

Here's the blurb from the 661 site

The Recon helmet was designed as an all-mountain bike helmet. An in-mold shell design allows for fewer components and weighs in at a featherweight 303 grams, The extended rear coverage create a Moto inspired profile and the quick adjust Detox fit system secures correct fitment. 18 intake vents give great airflow across the head while the internal channeling is what really gives the Recon Helmet its active ventilation and keeps the rider cool. With its removable moto inspired visor, and matte finished graphics, the Recon helmet is ready to take the trail by storm.

Eventful Sunday

Sunday's ride at Kilvey Hill killed my frame! We'd been riding various singletrack sections from 10ish onwards testing the GoPro Chest Cam.

We had ridden the Fenceline twice and then the Alpine without problems. Looping back up to the rock garden on the downhill and set off down the right hand tech track. As I exited the track and re-joined the downhill there was a loud bang (a bit like a rock strike but much louder) so I stopped (about 10 yards from the jump) to find the carnage below.

It's being replaced by a new Ragley Blue Pig 2011.

We've been open one whole month. To celebrate this we have a tin of Quality Street at the shop for people to come and scoff. Yep we know how to party here, so come and see us before we eat them all! (If you know us then you know that's quite a large possibility)

The shop is still a bit of a work in progress and will be for a while, but little by little we will get it looking how we want. We're fully functioning as a workshop though and that's the main thing.

It's been a brilliant first month. We're having a blast, and it's been lovely to see so many familiar faces come in to see us and be so positive about the shop. It's also fantastic to welcome lots of new faces and we've been really encouraged by the support we've received from every single person that's come through our door :)
