We are really pleased to announce that we are now the Western Australian dealer for Santa Cruz Bicycles.
Santa Cruz are one of the premier mountain bike manufacturers in the world and are one of the most sought after because of their fantastic attention to detail. Some of the most simple features of their bikes are what make them so good. For us something as simple as the traditional threaded bottom bracket show that they are not about gimmicks but making a product that will stand up to what it is designed for. Santa Cruz also offer a lifetime frame warranty and the real kicker is the lifetime bearing replacement! So if you are looking at a new bike check out the awesome range on offer from Santa Cruz by checking out their website www.santacruzbicycles.com or by giving us a call for custom build options. We expect to have stock in store in April and are taking orders now.

We thought it was time for some more info on our webpage so why not start with a review of one of the newest and most fun bikes in the shop!
Yeti has release a few great bikes over the past couple of months significantly reviewing their line up to continue bringing us incredible bikes. The three key bikes are the new and improved ASRc, the SB5 and the SB6. With the great success and ton of reviews surrounding the SB5 and SB6 we thought we would offer a view on the ASRc.
The ASRc offers 120mm front and 100mm rear suspension and with its full carbon frame it is a light weight race machine with a fun element. Weighing in at only 11kg without trying to make it lightweight it creates a fun bike with great acceleration.
Having ridden and raced a few S-Works Epics over the past three years I am use to great acceleration and awesome handling but the ASRc takes it to the next level! The 120mm forks creates a much more relaxed head angle of 69 degrees and while I may reduce the travel to 100mm for racing it does create versatility without creating compromise.
As with all the Yetis we sell there is the ability to customise every element of the build. On this occasion I have gone with a SRAM X01 1×11 build using the alloy X1 crank set. For braking it is the most reliable brake on the market the Shimano XT with 160 rotors front and back keeping weight down and still providing ample braking power. For the wheels I have put my old Mavic SLR wheels on. I love these and while I will upgrade to the new Mavic Crossmax SL the current wheels provide a great stiff option without breaking the bank on a set of carbon hoops.
To check out the new Yeti range come in and see us at Wembley Cycles to work out which bike suits you best. The SB5 is on the show floor and the SB6 will be in soon.
Here is a sneaky look at the cool stuff that came through our front door this week…
Limited Edition Saddles
We received three Specialized Edition saddles; a ‘red is faster’ Toupe, a ‘stay corked’ Romin and a ‘Belgian classic’ leather Chicane. All three are 143 width and come with matching tape.
Cavendish Limited Edition Run
Our limited run of Cavendish apparel and components arrived. This includes an S-Works Evade helmet, S-Works shoe and a Cavendish kit with matching gloves. Best of all, it matches our store colours beautifully!
Stumpjumper Evo 650B
Specialized have replaced the popular Stumpy Evo 26 (that so many of our staff own) with a 650B version.
Similar to the 26” Evo, it features 150mm of travel combined with a low bottom bracket and slack head angle, meaning it rips jumps and corners. By adding 650B wheels it rolls a touch quicker and ensures wheels and tyres to suit will be easy to come by in the future. Our staff are also very pleased that the bike now comes with Shimano brakes!
This is an ideal bike for those who ride trails of the Gunjin/Luvin Shovels style, and is the perfect steed for Gravity Enduro races.
All of these awesome products shots are courtesy of Brad Serls Photography. Head on over to his Facebook and have a gander at some great riding, portrait and architecture shots.
We have just landed a limited run of Specialized Edition Cavendish gear.
This includes the Evade helmet, S-Works road shoes, Toupe saddle (with tape) and riding kit (jersey, bibs and gloves).
Yep. Brad Serls photo.

As you have probably noticed, we are very proud of the athletes that we support. The weekend just past was a great one for Wembley Cycles Racing, so we wanted to share some of their stories.
Chris and Declan raced the XC Marathon National Champs at Mt Joyce in QLD. Both put in gutsy rides to finish 18th and 21st respectively against Australia’s best.
On the gravity side Shaun competed in the first WA State DH round at the Goatfarm MTB Park. Despite feeling a bit beat up after a long stint racing and riding over East and in NZ, Shaun put in a good run for 9th place. He then proceeded to crash his brains out in the toughest rock garden on the track during his Top 30 run, and did some damage to his ribs. Check out the crash here, wild! We hope you heal up soon Shaun!
On the tarmac the Duffield twins had a great result at the Batavia Triathlon in Geraldton, while Ben took a win at the final round of the WA Triathlon series in Hillarys.
Congratulations to you all, legends!
We are looking forward to a strong performance from the team at the Jorgenson Park 4 Hour next Sunday!
This is 9/150, size large.
