Hope Tech: It’s Grim Up North – Showcases New Cranks

Hope’s made in the UK products are top notch and to help create a buzz around their new cranks, they went up North to ride in what many would consider grim conditions with team riders Craig Evans and Sam Flanagan. I’m liking what I see with those cranks, and everything in Hope’s catalog these days. They really are putting in solid work.

Check out a great feature on the Hope Cranks at their site. Availability is slated for late January.

Made in the UK, limited edition (but still in stock) and a great, classic color – sorry, colour – palette. The USD conversion gets a bit steep but if you’re in the UK and are looking for a new pullover, head over to Rouleur to see more.

Shand Cycles: Stooshie CX Race Machine
Shand_CX

Small-time frame builders can deviate from their normal M.O. and create more precision machines with very little issue, which is why I think framebuilders will forever offer a better fit to your specific cycling needs.

Agendas aside, this Shand Cycles Stooshie cyclocross race machine is based off a Stoater platform, with a few geometric tweaks, tuned in for CX races… oh and camo never hurt! See more at the Shand Flickr!

Morvélo Battle Royale

This looks good!

Morvélo Battle Royale is a unique take on bicycle speedway, using a natural concrete oval in an abandoned old market in central Brighton. Pitching all types of riders and bikes against each other in a series of fast and furious knockout heats. Enter your ‘”gang” as a team of three, pack the ‘Warriors’ style outfit, and make sure you’re not last over the line.

For more details and online entry head to Morvélo.
