We are happy to support this year’s Dirty Gran Fondo race in Wandong, Australia! This established mass cross event will happen on May, 17th one hour drive from Melbourne, Australia. We will report about the race and our HOOK bike afterwards – so stay tuned!
The HOOK is all about performance in an understated package – choose your ground and stop worrying. Be it a cyclocross spin, a gravel ride, or even some longer road miles – this is a bike with versatility built-in. Developed with Olaf Wit, the HOOK is built from Columbus tubing and a carbon fork to keep things stiff but light. The chainset is the proven 11–Rival from SRAM and the wheelset is the latest offering from Mavic, so the bike is well equipped to take on whatever you have in mind for it.
Earlier this week CHROME Industries released an awesome commercial for their current spring collection – and we spotted our DASH bike in there! (ClICK THE PIC TO WATCH THE CLIP)

We have been involved with the Singlespeed Cyclocross European Championships for a few years now, and its always an event we have fixed in our diaries. Its not exactly a UCI event, but rather a competition for enthusiasts looking for some elbows out, shoulder to shoulder single speed racing.
Our team rider Stefan “Fish” Vis took part on his ARISE, to see what the bike could do on a competitive stage. The bike and Fish share quiet a lot in common: both are like a Swiss Army Knife, tough, dependable and versatile – they won the bronze medal, an achievement that given the competition and the hardware they were riding is a nice achievement.
