Wow, what a weekend! We have just returned from The Cycle Show at Alexandra Palace and what an amazing reception we had. Thank you so much for everyone who came to see us, try one of our tools and stopped for a chinwag. We loved meeting you all and demonstrating our range of cycling innovations.
We had the pleasure of meeting Sam Gupta from Cycling Weekly, on Friday and demonstrated our Rehook Tyre Glider. Sam was an instant fan of the tool and we were given a cheeky slot in Cycling Weekly's 'Cycle Show Hot Tech' youtube video. Check it out below.
As avid BMX fans we were over the moon to meet up with Kriss Kyle several times over the 3 days.
Kriss Kyle is a freestyle BMX legend and YouTube MTB star, this Red Bull sponsored Scotsman loves nothing more than taking on seemingly impossible and making it reality. Most recently riding a skatepark slung from a hot air balloon! In the video below he showcased an array of tricks suspended over 2,000 feet above ground.
Kriss has been our Designer, Oli's, hero for some time now so he was very excited when they first got chatting at the show.
During the weekend we were lucky enough to meet Verral and the crew from @c86erz. Begun during lockdown, the bike riding network work covers all boroughs of London and delivers supplies and support the homeless and those in need on London's streets.
We loved meeting Lee Niven and Darren Hyland from the Spokes People who provide world class Cytech technical training for the cycle industry. We're very excited to be working along side them during The National Cycle Show, Cycle Clinic in June. These guys have an outstanding level of knowledge so it was an honour to learn from them.
As always it was great to catchup up with other UK innovations including Boost (electric bike conversion kits) and Hindsight (rear view cycling glasses). We also met James from EnduoSports who was having a very successful launch weekend for their new range of 100% natural endurance fuel.
We were very excited to meet the crew at The London Cycling Campaign stand. The LCC strive to make cycling in London safer and more enjoyable for everyone. Their stand were running a 'who can change a tyre fastest' competition with the fastest entry being 57 seconds - amazing record! We asked to enter with our Rehook Tyre Glider but were told this might be considered 'Tool Doping'. Watch out for our own take on the competition coming soon - Where Tool Doping will be encouraged.
And finally a special thank you to the organiser of The Cycle Show, you put on a cracking event and we can't wait to see you all next year!
