    Newly Released Bikes General

    It's pretty much my do it all bike. For flat XC stuff I tend to now ride a hardtail, but anything with some chunk, from local Hobart stuff up to Maydena trips sees the Primer hauled out of the shed. Worth noting that the rider is a middle aged dad with a mortgage, and is far from fighting weight...

    Trail. For the record I have a 2017 Primer, and it has been flawless aside from some internal cable rattle. I'm interested in the updated lower link frame design though as it apparently overcomes some slow speed square edged hang-ups from the first gen box link

    More trails for Mt Wellington

    When I'm feeling fit I try and ride up it, which quickly tells me that I am unfit. Probably ride down it once a year for yucks and giggles, as you can get a good pace up on it for a decent distance and it has a nice old school sketchiness about it.
