Friday isn’t usually parcel day, but when I arrived at the office this morning I was greeted with two plain brown boxes, one from Fox and one from SRAM. The Fox box contained a couple of pairs of shorts and a helmet for review in future issues of Spoke and darn it if they aren’t two of the coolest looking shorts I’ve seen in a while. First up is the Fox Diva, a woman’s short that doesn’t look like a woman’s short, which is a good thing and shows that Fox have undoubtedly been listening to women.

For the guys the latest incarnation of the High Voltage short arrived and it’s hot; I’m a bit annoyed that it’s not me reviewing it!

There was also a Fox Transition DJ helmet in there, which we’ll put through its paces in the next few months along with the shorts.

The other parcel was a bit more personal. Rob and Peter at SRAM have just supplied me with the sexiest brakes on the planet, yup, a set of ElixrCRs to put on my Nomad. I’ve been running Avid Juicy 7’s for the past couple of years so it should be a good move. You can expect a long term review in our November issue.
