We’re happy to say that the first in hopefully many bicycle workshop courses run at Shand HQ is now open for booking. This first one (well two actually) is a wheelbuilding course. We’re acting as hosts for Derek McLay of Wheelsmith to run ‘An introduction to wheelbuilding’. It’ll run on the 16th of November and again on the
23rd of November (). All bookings are to be made with Wheelsmith and NOT us.
See the link below for more details and how to book.
I know summers’s over, but we’ve finally got t-shirts back in stock! Available in three sizes and two colours (graphite or sunflower) you can find them in the Shand online shop.
We’re starting to update our webshop with some winter essentials to help you keep riding through the colder, darker months. First products to be added are lighting systems from UK company Exposure. Exposure are a sister company to USE who may be familiar to you already through their components like seatposts and stems.
I’ve been commuting with an Exposure Joystick on the front and a Flare on the back. My commute is mostly on unlit quiet country roads and I’m super impressed by them. It’s been a while since I bought good quality lights (pre-LED) and I can’t believe how much the technology has moved on.
So if you’re looking for lights to get you through the winter pop over to our webshop.
Having asked customers for feedback on our bikes, we’re looking for information from others to understand better what they think about Shand and why they may (or may not) buy one of our bikes.
To that end we’re prepared a short survey that should only take five minutes of your time and for your effort there’s a chance to win one of five ‘Reduce Carbon, Ride Steel’ t-shirts.
You can find the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CGDV8Q7 and we thank you in advance for your time!
