Wayne has done it! 150 miles, 5000m of climbing, all on a Travers Fat Race! in 13 hours 45mins
Great ride! Amaze Balls!
Wayne Elliot from Eds Bikes left this morning on his epic coast to coast 150 mile ride on his Fat Race. There is still a chance to sponsor his and raise money for JDRF and Type 1 Diabetes.
Guess how long it will take him £5 per guess, all the money goes to JDRF and the 3 closest win a prize.
The "Fat Prong" with triple bottle cage mounts for a "Salsa Anything cage" on both legs:
Fork weight 533g
Axel to Crown - 483mm
Spacing - 135mm
Rider weight limit - 110kg
Carbon threadless steerer uncut 300mm
1 1/2" - 1 1/8" tapered steerer
Post mount disk brake front specific (160mm)
3k weave with Gloss finish
Clearance for a 4.7mm tyre
The world lightest Carbon Ft Bike fork?
The summer is just about here so it about time to start thinking about Cyclocross! Here are some moody black and white shots of the new Travers CX Elite
Casper Ortvald of the 29er Shop in Denmark is currently riding the Tour Divide which is the worlds longest off road race. It starts in Alberta in Canada and finishes in New Mexico. The competitors will climb the height of Mount Everest 7 times during the course of the event.
Casper has just posted this picture of his "Prong 29" fork.
Keep it up Casper, you are doing a great job
Wayne Elliot from Eds Bikes is doing the 150 mile coast to coast ride in 1 day on his monster Travers Fat Race...I will let him explain more...
Hi everyone, keep an eye out for me over the day, for those that don't know I am the mad one that took the bet from a good friend Tom Needham betting me i could not do the event on a fatbike.
To make it even harder it looks like i have no friends wanting to do it with me so im on my own
Im going to set out from the start at 6am so if anyone wants to join me then i will see you then.
for those that see me and pass me, do pull up and have a chat, i do respond well to been called a mad idiot and asked why.
Good luck to all taking part, remember if it gets tough and your hurting think about me lugging this bike across the country.
Im raising money for JDRF a charity close to a friend and organiser of the event, im not one for asking for sponsorship but if you want to have a look at the link and pledge £5 you can then take a bid how long it will take me, the closest bid will win some prizes.
John Moore's record breaking Liverpool to Leeds ride on his Travers Angus 29+ 218.2km in 9:29:06, Blog and pictures plus strava route...the gauntlet has been thrown down!
I was feeling in a generous mood today, so picked up a team Jersey on the way out for a ride and hid it in the woods leaving these visual clues on the Travers Bikes Facebook page.
The Jersey has been found by Dave Foxall!
Thanks to Kim Kragbæk Larsen for these pictures of his Rudy Fat built up.
