Feety Fox Racing

Ooo look at the cuteness of these Fox MX socks (I never thought I would say ‘cute’ and ‘MX’ in the same sentence). They would be brilliant for under leg armor (avoiding the scratchy marks from velcro around the knees and whippings from branches), I love the  polkadotness of them! (I think you are probably seeing a pattern here)

57901001FThis ‘Toasty Toes Slipper Pack’ would be perfect to slip into after a day throwing the bike around. And they come in a gorgeous pouch as well. Personally I have a set of ancient polka dot furry slippers that I put on after every ride. They are starting to look a bit manky at this stage – hmm might be an idea to pick up a new pair. Damn it, this bloody blog just makes me want to buy more and more stuff. NOT good for my bank balance! Actually they are super cheap ($12.99) in the Fox sale at the moment *clicks to check bank balance* *sighs after realization of insufficient funds* 😦

Mountain Bike Sandwich Wrapper

In looking around the deepest darkest Interweb for bike bargains, cute mtb clothing and interesting accessories, sometimes items appear that just HAVE to be mentioned. Etsy is a huge community of users that buy and sell handmade items, and one member has created… wait for it….  reusable mountain bike sandwich wrappers!

Granted its not the most useful thing that has ever been made, but I suppose it saves you on those mini plastic bags to wrap your sambo in, AND makes you look cool in the lunchroom, AND it saves bits of the sandwich falling out of the sandwich (I hate when that happens, especially bits of lettuce, and then you have to squash them back in). So all in all, weighing up the pros and cons, I think this is a necessary accessory for any biker. Buy it from: www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25455873 (ah go on its only 6 dollars!)

Maloja Freeride Jersey

Really like the colours and graphics on this Freeride Jersey by Maloja. Having a browse through their homepage, this brand has amazing jerseys. Going to have a good look and report back with some choice pickings (www.maloja.de/). Available from www.minx-girl.com at the bargain sale price of £40 (good for a freeride top).

Warning Warning Liquidation Sale!

The US based female freeride clothing shop Freeride Foundation are doing a Liquidation sale on some of their stock (see shop list on the right). They do a good selection of freeridey stuff and I particularly liked this Twin Six top for only $17. I love the graphics of all the different types of pedals on the back, and as usual Twin Six have a great strong colour to complement.

Even Krankier: New Krank Dirtwear

Just got sent details of some new jerseys from top New Zealand based MTB clothing shop Krank Dirtwear. I am really liking their use of bold colours and their designs are different to the usual BIG LOGOS plastered on every available surface of a garment. These two jerseys are a perfect example of their designs:

-1-3

Its great to see on their site that they have women riders in mind, “Noticing that the lady mountain bike riders weren’t getting a fair deal with their mountainbike clothes we decided to design all of our ladies MTB clothes to suit their distinctive shape from XS right through to WXL we cater for all…”. As a stupidly-tiny 4′ 11″ rider, I have had to wear my fair share of lumpy misshapen jerseys that bulge out in all the wrong places. Non-sporty clothes are designed for women-shaped bodies, so why not sports clothes (its a no-brainer!).

Also, if you in the mood for scaring the bejasus out of your opponent check out the back of this custom jersey they’ve designed:

Top Ten Trainers: Five Ten Impact Karver

Five Ten shoes have recently introduced a women’s version of their ever popular MTB shoes. Available at CRC from ultra-tiny size 3 (35.5) up to size 7.5 (41.5), these shoes are a must for any XC or DH rider who uses flat pedals. The soles are made from super grippy Stealth rubber which make sure your feet stay on the pedals when you are going foot-out-flat-out.

Looking at their design, I was a bit disappointed that the usual purple/pinky colour scheme was used for a ladies MTB shoe, but considering that the shoes will most likely get so mucky that it wont be seen its not much of an issue. Two girls from my club have these, and have only good things to say about them, especially in that they protect your ankle from pedal-bashing.

Good call on Five Ten for introducing these (especially in the small sizes for girls like me!). These are a MUST for any flat pedal MTBer. Available from CRC: www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=33183

Cheapness Alert! Sombrio Cloud Jersey

Just came across this on Wiggle: www.tinyurl.com/lcsg5k

A Sombrio Cloud jersey for only 15 pounds (free shipping to UK and Ireland)!!! I was a bit unsure about this top but then found this review on Muddbunnies (www.tinyurl.com/mh93xj) and it looks gorgeous on one of their club members:

I have a couple of Sombrio tops and can vouch for their durability and great sizing, especially over armour. Get it while you can!
