The guy that comes to see us from Battaglin Bikes is called Alessandro Battaglin. He's the salesguy for Battaglin bikes, and has helped us bring them to the UK market at amazing prices. 
My dad is cool. He is Ilkley Town Crier. But Alessandro's dad won THE GIRO!

FACTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT OUR NEW CEO
We have a new big boss who's steering the big ship whilst Brant and Dave drill holes in the side and dive off the edge and play with sharks. Brant's just spent two days driving around Holland in the Peugoet 107 with him.

FACT 1 :: He's danced with Kylie and Dannii Minogue on the roof of the Hacienda.

CRIKEY IT'S COLD!
Gone a bit nippy out and it's not set to get warmer. Get set for winter proper with:-
Super Roubaix Bib Tights for lovely toastie thighs,  Neoprene Overshoes to keep your toes warm, On-One Merino Neck Warmer to stop the draughts down your neck, Planet X Insul8or Gloves to keep your fingers warm. All tested and developed by our staff and riders.  CHINESE

ENGLISH NAMES 
We work with China and Taiwan a lot. And the way that the people there bend over backwards to help us get stuff done is brilliant. Because western people by and large can't speak Chinese, all Chinese people who deal with western people have an "English name" that they use.

Some are wonderful. Over the years, we've dealt with Melody Wang, Richard Gu, Tina Grip. Lots of Rick's, Eric's, Clark's, one girl who used to be called Tweetie but was now called Eve. Nica, oh lovely Nica, crazy Meg, Fred, Jasper, Robert (also known as Mr Control). 

But for some reason, nothing made me laugh quite as much as a new factory we've got who has two guys called Bob and Ken working for them. Nica and Eve named me "鐘伯樂" which isn't rude. Apparently.

THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO GO FASTER
There's a lot of talk about how product can improve your speed. But for true speed and efficiency improvements we've seen much bigger benefits from getting yourself properly fitted to your bike. Saddle and bar position, pedal positioning. It's crucial and can make big comfort and speed gains. 

Get Bikefitted using our Retül system for half price this month. 
Use UKRETUL50 for 50% off  a Level 2 or Level 3 3D Bike Fit.

FACTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE BIKE INDUSTRY
As part of the "driving around Holland" thing, we ended up at Shimano Europe. And as well as the bike stuff we all know about, and the fishing stuff that some people know about, Shimano also make ROWING stuff.

We went there expecting a ROW but got on quite well with them in the end. Anyhow.
