All our customers are important, but it’s fair to say it’s not every day you get to collaborate on a project with a seven times Olympic medalist.
The Keirin track bike you see above was a collaboration between Sir Chris Hoy, bicycle designer James Olsen and ourselves – and it would be fair to say we’re rather pleased with the result.
If you’d like to learn more about the project then you can read Brian Palmer’s interview on The Washing Machine Post: Sir Chris Hoy’s new bike.
Some more pictures of the project can be found on our Flickr set.
New jerseys are in production with Endura and will be available in October.

If you’d like to be notified when pre-orders can be made through our shop (along with sizing and other details), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Shand kit’ and we’ll let you know.
Ian Barrington rode a Shand 29er in the Highland Trail 550, the UK’s toughest bikepacking event – an uncompromising 550 mile route through the Highlands of Scotland. Watch his film to see how he got on.
A writeup of the race can be read on his blog post here: Highland Trail Race 550.
We’re selling an ex-demo bike. It’s a Fat Tyre Stoater and the very model that won ‘Best Off Road Bicycle’ at last years (2013) Bespoked Handbuilt Bike Show.
It’s a medium size and you can check out the geometry here.
Mostly XT components, Chris King headset, barend shifters Ritchey tyres and finishing kit. No pedals or saddle but we could supply these if you need them.
The bike could be mistaken for brand new. I’d be surprised if it has more than 200 miles on it. We’d like £2000 for it and will ship next day delivery anywhere in the UK for £15.

Photo (iPhone I’m afraid so not great) taken half way round a very nice 70 mile run. Bike looks great and rides just as well. Fits very well indeed so not sure any adjustment will be needed.
Thank you all very much indeed. I’m delighted. All that was expected and a bit more!
Have a good weekend.
