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.

Shand calls the Stoater a “cross bike for people who don’t race cross” and here in the States, bikes like this get labeled “gravel grinders” or “adventure bikes”. I like to think of them as all-road bikes.
The Stoater can be run as a singlespeed, geared or Rohloff. Shand achieves versatility through using a PF30bb, so it can accept a Beer Components EBB and the Paragon Polydrop dropouts with interchangeable inserts. This, along with modular cable routing, drivetrain swaps are easy. Built from Reynolds 853 with Deda and Columbus stays, the Stoater can take what you can throw at it.

I don’t know if you’re heard or not, but ripping through the woods on a cross bike is a lot of fun. The guys at Brothers Cycles made a fun little video promoting their Kepler cross frame.
I had never heard of Shand Cycles before yesterday’s new of Chris Hoy’s Keirin-inspired track bike, so I did some digging… Enjoy!
Man, I really want to see one of Field Cycles’ bikes in person and even take one on a quick spin one day, especially after seeing what just rolled out of their shop. The Sheffield Steel Peloton Road is a crit racer’s dream ride. Stiff where it matters and just flashy enough. Check out Field’s thoughts on this bike, along with some more photos below!
The concept of a narrow-wide ring is by no means original, but companies always have their way of putting a spin on it. Here’s Hope‘s version…
When two names like this come together, you can only hope it’s gonna be good. Well… Looks good to me!
Well, we’ve seen the saddles being made through photos, now let’s look at Brooks’ portage line through this video…
