We’ve had a relationship with Kona for years now, but never really done a great deal with them. After talking to lovely Andy Mee on Wednesday, we now have a few stock bikes and more on the way. If you want something Kona, we can help you out – they’re lovely.

I just built a Surly Cross Check with a Shimano Nexus hub, as a test bed for the Versa VRS-8 Nexus/Alfine Shifters. I’m pleased with the result and will be putting together a Super Commuter in the next week or so – more details about that soon.

Here’s a couple of shots of the Surly…

Riding in the Valley

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

I went up to Calderdale yesterday, to ride bikes and talk shite with the Singletrack boys and a plethora of northern bike industry types. It was great.
I took my singlespeed, as it was the only bike with air in the tyres and pedals on and I’m amazed to say, I didn’t have to walk up anything, including the ridiculously steep first climbs. OK, we didn’t ride for hours, or cover a great deal of ground, but it’s got me wanting to do a bit more and that’s got to be a good thing.

This is great…

Blimey, even doing it the way I am, this ‘loading products onto a website so people can buy them with a mouse click’ is chuffing tedious.

It’s not smooth either, so things like postage charges will need ironing out and I’m not 100% sure what will happen if you try to buy something we’re out of stock of, but hopefully I’ll find out and be able to let you know once we’ve got it back in.

Ho hum – that’s progress for you.
