So my friend Katie is running this awesome event in the US (you’ll be able to read about it in the new next issue of Spoke). It’s called Clips of Faith and is essentially a DIY bicycling film festival presented by New Belgium Brewery (and supported by Easton and Santa Cruz among others). The concept is simple: make short, awesome films with cycling as the theme, then travel round the country with a portable outdoor screen and show them whilst drinking handmade beer. The whole thing is to raise money for Project Bicycle Trip, a not for profit organisation designed to teach kids in need an employable skill (that being a bike mechanic). You can read all about it over here on the Project Bike Trip website, and while you’re there you can also choose to donate $5 and go in the draw to win this fully tricked out Carbon Santa Cruz Blur TRc. I’m pretty sure they may ship it to New Zealand. Hell even if they didn’t it would be under $500 to ship and that would be one cheap bike considering its spec.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
