Blimey, almost a whole year since our last post. Well then since then we've ridden another winter DH Series and a whole Summer DH series, managed not to embarrass myself in both series so that's a bonus. A raft of reasonable finishes( mostly top 10s) for Chris Evans in Vets so pleased with that. Gwyn Webb in Seniors broke into the top 10 with a 9th at the 3rd round of the summer series and hasn't stopped telling everyone yet.
Pictures will hopefully follow

Forest Of Dean Summer DH Series

Final results for the Forest Of Dean Summer DH series are out. Chris raced in the Veterans class and after doing 3 out of the 4 races he finished 4th overall, very very pleased with that.
Here's a couple of photos from races....

 Round 4 (looks like I'm stationary and just leaning ready to fall over!)

Round 1 

Thanks to the organisers for a great series, I'll definately be back next year

VOLT Electric Bikes

We are proud to be the local dealer of VOLT electric bikes in Swansea. VOLT have an amazing range of bikes to suit every cyclist and we keep a few of the most popular in stock so you can come and test ride a bike before buying from their website.  Your chosen bike is then delivered to our shop where we build it up ready for you to ride away.

All VOLT bikes come with a 2 year warranty and all electrical and technological components are maintenance free, which means you can bring your bike to us for servicing just like any other bike.

The Kensington step through was recently featured in the latest promotional video from the famous Joes Ice Cream Parlour (which is only a few doors down from our shop!) so check out the video to see the bike in action, and you can enter their competition to win a lifetimes supply of Joes Ice Cream! Don't forget us if you do :)

Racing Again :)

I've signed up for another one , this weekend is the opening round of the MIJ Downhill series at The Forest of Dean. Similar format to the 661/Naked Racing Mini DH (not actual naked racing though, it was winter and there's no way I'd be starkers in the middle of winter).

Here's the website MIJ RACING

Come along and laugh at us or maybe even join the racing.

Those are from the 2014/15 Naked Racing Mini DH

Trail Dog

You may remember a while ago we added Molly the collie dog to the staff :)

Finally took her out for a ride over the weekend. Little bit nervous but went well in the end.

Here she is not going particularly quick along a section on the Wall trail at Afan.

If you're at a loose end then West Wales Trails are opening their bike park to the public tomorrow.

A short promo video of our new bike park produced by State of flow films for Carms RDP grants, btw I chopped it out of the full video of grant projects hence the slightly shonky ending.

It's back (finally). I've updated the used bike and parts pages with current stock so you can now see what we have (mostly). Please call us if there is anything you'd like to know, I'll be adding more parts such as wheels and cranksets over the next couple of days so keep an eye on it.

Sunday Ride

At last a break in radio silence :) I've actually found the time to write something about last Sunday's ride, and it wasn't our usual trail bike ride at Bike Park Wales 
We fancied something different so set off for Van Road near Caerphilly for a day of dirt jumping.

Really it was a spot of dirt jumping for Gwyn and Callum and day of seeing if myself Jamie and Stewart could be less rubbish than the last time we did any jumping. I have to say the excellent jumps helped us progress further than expected.  It's only around and hour from Swansea and well worth a visit.
