25/11/2016 - Thanks to our Instagram contributors

We never get tired of seeing our bikes in far flung corners of the world. From skidding round dusty singletrack in South Africa, getting elbows deep in snowy Scotland or lost up a mountain in Morocco, there are places bikes take you that we couldn’t even imagine; and you guys have most likely gone there!

Of all our regular contributors, four people have really gone the extra mile. Here’s a little run down of what’s kept us smiling each day when we check the insta. Give them a follow and their exploits will make you smile too.


Based in the East of Germany, Traumund heads to the wild, secluded, misty, hidden places, far from main roads. A pair of knobblies on his escapade, a couple of waterbottles and a very healthy sense of adventure is all he needs; and maybe some new bar tape for the left hand side.


A Lakes-loving, mountain-climbing camera-wizard. In between photoshoots for top clients such as Singletrack, Lowe Pro & Inov8, he’s more than likely hike-a-biking up Helvellyn with our friend @hddnmedia. Up early and out late, spare a thought because as well as lugging his bike to these spots, he’s also got his camera kit too.


Wes took a BFe to the Alps and sent it down everything in sight… Morzine super-table, Les Gets drops, Chatel road gap & river gap etc etc etc. At 15 he’s got no business being this talented. Just wait till he graduates from superhero school.


Even though he’s only owned his rocket since August, in that short time Will has been podium’ing almost as much as Rocketman & Straightline. Buckets of style and some solid pace are going to see him on more top steps in 2017.
