A Victorian Cyclist: Ozaru Books


RETAILING AT £19.99 and perhaps one of the more interesting reads from a historical point of view to be released lately, A Victorian Cyclist offers a rare and insightful look into the Kentish countryside in 1886. The third book from historian Stephen Channing and his wife Shirley, A Victorian Cyclist includes several different rambles, each beginning in the seaside town of Margate. Guiding the reader through nearly 500 miles


of Kent countryside, this informative text explores a variety of routes that are ideal for the

hiker and cyclist alike. Providing detailed historical insight, the narrative offers a comprehensive account of the experiences and discoveries of a Victorian cyclist. This allows the reader to learn more about the landscape and ecology of the Victorian age, and discover how routes and paths have changed and developed over the years. A comprehensive website at


www.victoriancyclist.com complements the book, providing modern day maps, photographs, information on the villages visited, and more.


Intrepid apparel: Direct to retail


INTREPID APPAREL has announced its availability to trade accounts, following on from the brand’s Cycle Show launch in September. Created by Jason Corbett, a Surrey mountain


biker, the firm specialises in clothing for off-road cycling and has already scored some good reviews in the consumer magazines. Corbett told BikeBiz: “Dealers can contact us


directly and it is a very straightforward process to get a trade account set up. We only launched in September 2011, so we still have plenty of stock ready to deliver to the UK retailers and, for


jason@intrepidapparel.co.uk


this reason, we are willing to be flexible with retailers to give them an opportunity to try out stocking Intrepid.” When asked what’s different about his brand,


Corbett cited a few examples of the technology and materials used within much of his product. “The race jersey uses a fast wicking, ultra


breathable material. The softshell uses a microfleece and is also extremely breathable.” For more details on the packages available to


retail, contact Corbett on Jason@intrepidapparel.co.uk.


Clarks Components: Various distributors


INTRODUCED TO the trade at Eurobike and coming into stock now, Clarks has an extensive line of new products, ranging from Italian-made saddles, colourful BMX chains and a number of other bits under the BMX-specific C4 banner. The Italian saddles are a talking point, in that


the variety gives dealers budget and higher-end product to offer their customers, including titanium railed, touring and city models, comfort designs and retro styling proving so popular with the fixed gear crowd.


Saddles aside, Clarks has released a number of new colourful brake rotors in various shapes and sizes for those looking to colourmatch even the smallest components. There’s also carbon fibre bottle cages, fresh brake pads for new systems on the market and a number of other items. Retailers should also look out for Clarks’ new lighter and improved Exo-Skeletal brake appearing on some OEM builds in the next 12 months. www.clarkscyclesystems.com


Federal Liquid fork: Seventies


HASTINGS-DESIGNED and tested BMX brand Federal has come up with some investment cast forks, dubbed the Liquid Forks, that will land with the distributor during December. Made from 4130 heat-treated chromoly with an ED anti-rust coating, the main changes over the prior Drop model centre round the dropout, with the lower leg joined to the rest of the fork using a high tolerance fit that is brazed then TIG welded externally. The steerer carries an integrated race and the tapered legs are

designed to avoid contact when used with pegs during grinds. Tough 5mm thick drop outs, a 35mm offset and a final weight of 2lbs make these a solid bet for the rider with a less than smooth or harsher riding style. The fork will be available in the pictured


shade of 'Star Blue', Chromed and ED black. For more information about the federal line, including the new signature frames, see www.federalbikes.com or seventies.co.uk
