Muc-Off Silicon Shine After many hours toiling over the bike with a toothbrush removing every last speck of dirt, the thing that is really missing is a top-class finish to really make it sparkle. After all, you polish that rust-bucket on the driveway every Sunday morning; why not apply the same loving care to your […]

This month’s customer review was written by nzmike on the Shimano AM45 2011 All Mountain SPD Shoe, and as usual, he is entitled to the £250 voucher. Had these for a couple of weeks now. I ride mostly x-country and light freeriding, these do the job well. Really comfy fit, with a roomy toe box […]

We’ve all noticed it – spring is well and truly in full swing. For riders who have been cycling through the winter, that means the long-awaited payoff of dry and dusty trails. But for those who are new to the world of mountain biking, it could be an even more special time; the opportunity to […]
