The New Travers XC Prong has arrived! £339 Now in its 3rd incarnation the XC Prong has had a major upgrade. The biggest changes involve the dropouts which are now 100% carbon, the hub spacing has now increased to 15x110 (Boost) with a wider more defined flange to guide and hold the wheel before you slide the axle in.
Speaking of the axle this has also changed completely. Integrating the nut into the fork leg allows for easier/quicker wheel changes. The fiddly grub screw has gone and now has been replace by a molded dropout to hold the nut in place. The axle QR handle can also now be re-positioned once the wheel is locked into place.
£1399 - Demo Travers Angus built up for the 2015 SSUK, used maybe 4 times. Not ridden more than 100 miles.
The frame is a Medium Travers Angus (the geometry is in the photo gallery). This build is with 29+ wheels. The front wheel is built with a SP Dynamo hub. The frame also has extended dropouts on the non drive side so could be easily used with a Rohloff hub (without the need for a torque bar).

ESES (Essex Summer Evening Series) Provisional dates.
For the first time the series will feature a British Cycling GO-MTB event. This is open to all ages and is designed to to give people a taste of racing in a more relaxed environment. This will be run on the same course as the main event but will be completely separate (the GO-MTB race will start and finish before the main event).
The GO-MTB event will be held on Tuesday 18th April 2017 before the night race. The GO-MTB event will be run in the light and you will not need lights. I will release more information in a couple of weeks on the TraversBikes.com website.
If you cant make the ESES I will also be holding a GO-MTB race before the Potash Spring Classic on Sunday the 23rd April 2017.
The 26" Nextie carbon Black Eagle II look amazing with the new graphics! #Nextie
