Maxxis Tyres go down…….in price!

We are very pleased to bring you the kind of consumer news which leaves you with more money in your pocket for beer (in our case) or other such things. We all know that to replace our rubber, we normally need a kings ransom in our pocket. But this week, the pain of purchasing new tyres was lessened a little by an announcement from Maxxis. Owing to a reduction in production costs, which have surprisingly been passed on to the consumer,...

Weekend Wanderings – 15.01.18

Congratulations to Michał Śmieszek, of Fatbike Poland, who raced at Zalew Janów Lubelski this weekend and came 3rd place in his category. In the UK, Stephen Edwards told us about a ride he’d organised in Formby for his “Fatbikers Up North” Facebook Group, which had a great attendance and perfect weather. And finally we saw these stunning shots from our own Gairy Mannion in Chamonix; no doubt whetting the appetite of those riders who...

A few months ago, Geoff from Vee Tire Co offered me the chance to be one of the few (if not only) riders in the UK to own their Snow Bike Festival Limited Edition Snowshoe XL tyres. I must admit, I was a little apprehensive. Especially as the first question he asked me was “What colour is your bike?” My response was followed up with “Teal and Lime? They’ll go really well” Now, I’m a trusting sort of chap, so I placed my order and paid...

Featured Rider – January 2018

Firstly, Happy New Year to you all. We hope that 2018 is everything you want it to be. And thanks for coming back. It’s great to have your support again in 2018. Secondly, in a shameless example of idleness, may I introduce the first Featured Rider of 2018; yours truly. Eating rich food and drinking good beer overtook my schedule, leaving me without a rider for January. But let’s not dwell on that shall we? Instead, let’s class this...
