iceBike 2014

A trade day with some off the Cycle Tech crew! Always good to meet up and see whats new and pick up great trade day offers! 

With Chris at the Continental stand
We picked up a lot of free goodies (Chris with his new hat)

Conti Mud Kings ideal for all this rain we have been having

Nice neat tube dispensers look good in any workshop or mobile van

Conti road tyres GP4000 Still their best selling high end road tyre
Conti also have a new road tyre range, with good margins. The tyre is sold as being a upgrade to most entry level road bikes. Might be good for bike shops that are interested in making a quick buck, but for the mobile mechanic who likes to offer what's right for the rider and the type of riding they are doing by selling something we have confidence in and we will benefit from the customer coming back to us and telling their friends and we see a profit long term 

New: Park Tool board, great to display in workshop, Park Tool School or in the mobile workshop
You can now subscribe to Park Tool newsletter 
Tool board - QKWMTBMET £59.98
Fittings kit - QKWMTBFK1 £22.98

At the Thule stand, quite literally. With Chris & Matt. Their new work stand that comes with the bike box below

Thule Bike box. Does not fit on their EasyBase. Shame maybe they will redesign for next year

Thule bike panniers 

DT Swiss, always good to see the boys at DT and this year we picked up DT Swiss chocolate

Pearl iZUMi My favorite cycle clothing

PEarl iZUMi X-Project mens MTB shoe

Pro bar ends. Screw/weg fitting a must for every road bike drop bar and in cool colors.

Yes we like Shimanos disc brakes for road bikes (With Peter) Just means another style of bike to have in the collection. It's like the wife having a shoe collection it's only fair! 

Shimano MTD groupsets
After a chat with Shimanos top guy; He says that the UK growth is in parts & accessories with steel bike frames being very popular here with the British. Say no more! We are use to have great built bikes with style in the past and not everyone wants carbon.

Wheels manufacturing range of bottom brackets

M-Part have repackaged their branding and have added GoPro and Garmin mounts
