Pivot Cycles M4X

We also like rare bikes; so the chance to acquire a Pivot M4X for a customer was an opportunity for us to combine these two pleasures.  A bit of background on the M4X, the frame was developed for dual slalom/four cross and slope style around 2011. The bike was originally designed with [...]

It was a strong solo effort as Mitchy was off to Manchester to (sadly not) ride in the National Track Championships. Adam got himself into an early three-man break and launched a solo attack with thirty minutes still [...]

With the cancellation of this event, my other aim for the season had been to chase my first Cat cycling licence, but I’ve always been more motivated [...]

A Year of New Experiences

The great thing about changing sports after so long as a runner is the new experiences it has afforded me over the last year.

The best thing about racing in cycling is there is something for everyone. Road racing (Tour de France style races, normally just one day though!), Criterium racing (road racing on a short loop – multiple laps), Cyclocross (racing a bike on a muddy field), Track racing (Velodrome), BMX, Mountain biking....the list goes on. The hard [...]
