'Less than £400 and the world's your oyster.... Say no more.'
Cycling Plus: June 2006.

Specialized Tricross Sport 27 '08 - £699.95

The Tricross Sport is a lightweight performance road bike made more versatile and forgiving with Zert-implanted carbon forks, 32mm-wide tyres and clearance to fit full mudguards and a rack. That's pretty revolutionary because, traditionally, lightweight road bikes have been regarded as an exciting ride but not so practical for expeditions on mixed terrain, while touring bikes are seen as more versatile but a tad dull in comparison. The Tricross Sport offers you the missing link: i.e. a versatile bike, fit for expedition touring, that's also an exciting ride fast enough for entry-level racing, triathlon or cyclo-cross.

Revolution Adventure Rear Panniers 40L - £54.95

Revolution Adventure Rear Panniers - £54.95

Panniers remain the most popular means of carrying up to 40 litres on your bike, and no wonder when you can get bags as well made as these at such a good price. If you've, up till now, carried loads in your back pack, you'll find panniers a liberating revelation.

Revolution Cargo '07 Load Trailer - £125

If you want to carry bigger loads than panniers will carry, or if you don't want to (or can't) fit a rack to your bike, the trailer is the way to go, and guess who makes the best value one?

'The Revolution Cargo is a superb product. Go get one today.'
Singletrack magazine: July 2006.

Up till recently, you could only fit the Revolution Cargo to bikes with a QR (quick release rear) wheel. However, we can now offer Revolution Adaptors for Solid Spindle Hubs - i.e. Revolution Cargo-compatible track nuts for bikes with solid spindle rear axles. These Cargo Nuts fit Shimano-standard 10mm axles axles with 1mm thread. £2.95 the pair.

Topeak Bikeamper Tent - £159.95

The bicycle frame and front wheel support the tent - no tent poles required - making the Bikamper, probably, the lightest (1,350g) and most compact tent for the independent cyclist. Deservedly, winner of the prestigious 2005 Red Dot design award in the 'Best of Best' category.
