Pilot Cycles 29+

And now for something completely different!

[By our editor Dennis Leidelmeijer]

To start I’m not a fan of 29-ers. And yes, maybe I’m overreacting and too principal and maybe it is fear of the wheel size that comes awfully close to that of a road bike…
So I was very sceptical when I was handed the Pilot Cycles 29-er Plus. But on the other hand, I’m quite curious and love new stuff, exotic materials and techniques. So that put me on a tough spot, because this bike surely is something new and exotic! So I let my curiosity take the overhand and went for a ride.

Leatt 3DF Knee Guard

The search for the right knee guard nowadays almost equals the search for the Holy Grail. At least, that’s how it appeared to me, when I start browsing the web at the beginning of this year in search of some new protectors. My wish list consisted of not too much weight, soft shells and a perfect fit. Because there is nothing more annoying than shifting protectors and, especially during competition, that’s something I do not want to worry about.

Mash CXSS

If you have watched a fixed-gear video on Youtube or Vimeo the past years the name Mash should ring a bell. In 2007 Michael Martin and Gabe Montfort from San Francisco shook-up the still young fixie community with their Mash SF video; one hour non-stop brakeless track bike lunacy and street races, shot on and around the hills of San Francisco.

LEADER 735 TR 2011

Francois ‘one arm bandit’ Roland tested for you the return of the model 735TR from Leader.

Alea jacta est! Leader Bike is back on the scene with the long-awaited 735 . Its position on the mar- ket puts it a notch above the 725, a frame that doesn’t cause quite the stir as in the Made in SF videos any better than on our quaint Belgian roads . Leader has managed to establish itself with relatively democratic prices for well-crafted bikes . Although manufactured in Asia, the frames that leave the factory are solid and sturdy, everything you’d expect from a track frame designed for city use . Indeed, Leader has given its bike a decidedly more urban twist and that’s also why we love them!
