Video: This Is Peaty

08.03.2013 //

After a stressfull week on the GXC circuit, the guys needed some down time out in St Tropez. Sun, sand and Bryceland’s backside was the perfect cure, before heading home for National Champs… Which turned out to be a belter of a course, fast and dusty in the height of the British Summer… An epic race, but some bad luck for Peaty once again, check the full story inside…

08.03.2013 //

It’s an advertisement–but a pretty kick ass advertisement all the same.

If only more adverts were made like this, I might actually watch them. Nice work from the people at Backcountry.com

Tested: HT AE03 Pedals

The first thing you notice about the EVO flat pedal is that it is freakishly thin. At a mere 11 millimeters at their thickest point, these things give you a hell of a lot more clearance than you average flat pedal—a huge plus if you live and ride amongst the roots and rocks or if you (like me) favor bikes with low bottom brackets.
