Look ma……..No lights. sunset sessions.

The summer is coming and Sprockets Cycles is getting busier. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to ride after work without feeling exhausted and without lights on. It’s also been a while since the other half has let me out to play after work, I love yoga classes, an hour and a half to get as much riding in as possible!

As much as I love riding at night with lights, nothing beats a “sunset session” light is fading, air is cool, trails are empty…………

The last couple of weeks have been awesome in terms of weather, sunshine all day long, cool clear nights, the trails have been completely dried out. this week though the rain has re-appeared, the trails are even better, bit more grip and wee bit of uncertainty in the corners, slidy slidy……….

Anyhow, I headed over to the other side of the local hill, haven’t ridden this trail in ages, someone excavated the tree that was blocking the end too, good times. Sessioned this for a while then headed back to the reservoir, one wee blast down the resi track and headed home. Just in time to meet the other half after her class, Cup of tea and a biscuit, night.

Cotic BFe feels awesome on the tracks, get one at sprocketscycles.com

See you in the shop,

Transition Bandit 26

First order of Transition bikes came in last week, first to be built is the Bandit 26″, its a 2011 frame and build kit but the geometry is the same as the 2012 model. first impressions? this is going to be a FUN bike!

The new bandit will have kashima fork and shock but for now we have to make do with the old RP23 shock and Float 140mm forks. rest of the build is by SRAM and transition components. coming in at just under £2900 RRP we have it at £2609.99 due to it being a 2011 model.

If the feel of this bike is anything to go by, the next build is going to be amazing, the brand new Bandit 29er 2012, in the only colour it should really come in, Lime Green. More on that as soon as its built.

Come in and have a proper look at the Bandit in store and check out the rest of the Transition stock we carry.
