“I ride the WZA frame because it has Jersey’s seal of approval and he’s made it exactly how I would want a frame to be, responsive rear end, sturdy stand over height, gussets on the top and down tubes. Basically sleek like Ron Burgundy’s appearance but strong like the scent of Sex Panther. Jerez definitely knows what’s up and I can’t see me riding anything else.

I’ve been testing the prototype 14mm female hub and couldn’t be happier. It’s got a pre installed ratchet washer so the pawls in the driver don’t wobble out and cause your hub to skip when pedalling. It’s also got slightly larger bearings and a more oversized appearance than the backstreet hub, without going too OTT. It has aluminium cones for lightness with chromo centres so it keeps the hub as light as possible without sacrificing functionality, along with a new engraved logo this thing is looking fresh and ready for some hammers.

When Grant received the prototype tyres, it was like Christmas, wee Alex’s face lit up like he’d found a giant bowl of Coco Pops in a sea of Haribo. His first test was the squeak, and of course they passed with flying colours, hence their nickname ‘Donnasqueaks’. So stoked on these too”.
