Missing in Action, Merida bargain road bikes, 29ers a go go, Saracen Mantra Expert......
Missing in action!!
Sorry guys/gals, your blogger has been too busy biking and building bikes to write of late………. Hopefully the spectacular weather will return, all the local trails have been in fantastic condition recently, and combined with the extra hour we have all been making the most of it. One boy who is hoping to make the most of it over the next few weeks is Saturday boy Bruce as he took delivery of his new 2012 Saracen Mantra Expert this week - built to rock the fastest SingleTrack....look out for his review over the next couple of weeks.
Hit the road Jack
All the lovely weather has brought many a tight fitting lycra outfit out of the closet! Some tighter than last year. Last week saw the first run of the season for Cairngorm Cycling Club, with over 30 hitting the road to Achlean. The 1st few 30limit sprints provided many hearts with a jump start. Rob (Cav) Edmonds showed he had lost none of his awesome power, allied to his Specialized Venge proved unstoppable, (except when Hamish starts a sprint to the glider field without telling anyone!!).
All the old faces were present and correct, with many new members joining.
Bargain Road Bikes
In common with previous years Mikes Bikes aims to provide affordable bikes as well as the shiny £3000 carbon jobs! We have secured a limited supply of Merida Road bikes for both Women and Men. With summer just around the corner its time to look at a fast bike!
Merida Road Ride 75 £449.99 (yes, its not a mis-print)
Designed in Germany. Alloy hydro formed frame, full 16 speed Sun Race Stis, “roubaix” geometry, 23mm tyres, Dual Pivot brakes, compact gearing and frame. From the worlds largest quality bike maker.
Merida Juliet Road Ride 77 (Female Specific) £499.99
Designed in Germany, this is completely conceived as a womens bike, shorter top tube, narrow bars, legendary Merida womens saddle, this also benefits from a full carbon fork.
At these prices, they will go quickly so be hurry or miss out!
We also have a few road bikes available for demo including the ladies Specialized Amira Elite which Jenny has had out a few times.
29ers a go go
As Specalized only 29er test centre north of Glasgow, we have seen the huge swell in popularity of 29ers, even our shop staff have been seduced by the stability, comfort, speed and trail ability of the 29er. Of late all World Cup XC races have been dominated by 29 inch wheels, so its time to speak to us, if you are looking to change your mountain bike the come in and try one. Mike is competing in the Corrieyairack this year and has chosen the Merida 29er as the ideal bike.
Jenny has been out testing the Ladies Specialized Jett 29er and on one occasion in glorious sunshine so decided to do the Sluggan Pass in both directions in the one evening…..
Anyway fingers crossed for some warmer weather again and once again thanks for all your support last season.
