This week the new Wild Cycles family members arrived. Thanks to Jonathan's inspired choice we've gone for British brand Alpkit's Frontier Eagle range. And on reflection we are exceptionally pleased to have made this choice.
Not only are they beautiful to look at and embody the spirit of adventure which is at the heart of Wild Cycles' endeavours - they are exceptionally fun to ride.
I had the pleasure of putting one of our newly acquired Frontiers to the test on the Ridgeway earlier today - and what a blast! Thanks to the ingenious geometry, 29 inch wheels the Frontier makes for an incredibly comfortable ride. A generous helping of rubber in the shape ot the WTB Rangers makes light of the gnarly, rocky terrain. The lightweight frame and overall configuration ensures a confident yet incredibly responsive ride - gliding over rocky sections and handling some deep rutted segments with confidence and ease.
Conclusion: absoflippinglutely the right choice and the perfect fit with Wild Cycles' adventures.
