So I don't spend a whole lot of time surfing the web for bicycle lube products, so when Rick from PRV rang the other day asking if we wanted to test some of Morgan Blue's products, I honestly had no idea what he was talking about. But one of our reviewers (Rod Bardsley, who is also our training wheels columnist) did and has been using the MTB/Cross lube and absolutely swears by it. I had no idea of the size of the range, but when the box showed up I soon discovered that they pretty much make everything (and we now have it all). All the product has been divvied up amongst Spoke's review team and we'll be bringing you our thoughts on some of the product over the next few weeks and a solid review of the MTB specific stuff in the magazine in March.

A new Tallboy that redefines it’s image. No longer just an XC trail bike. This thing decend’s as good as it climbs. Maybe better? Get the details inside.
The Meta TR 29, the new 130mm travel beautiful brushed alloy trail rig from Commencal just passed through the office recently. A solid, well-priced build makes this a very good option for a lot of people wanting that perfect blend between fun and pain. The go-everywhere, do-everything Meta in a neat little bundle.
One of the supercars of the modern era, the Pivot Firebird has been on the lips of everyone this past year. With Ed Masters piloting one to all sorts of reults, we got the Rod Bardsley to swing his leg over a Firey Bird and deliver some wise words of his own.
Santa Cruz have reached into their bag of tricks, and conjured up the all new Hightower. A completely revised version of their extremely popular 150mm 29er. We got to get an early ride aboard this beautiful machine on some equally stunning dirt. Here’s the lowdown…
Afton are another newcomer in what seems a flood of new shoe brands, but the stylish look and comfort have got everyone talking. Want to be the snazziest dude among your mates? Look no further.
