• Take off your clothes and come to the other side – Shedfire announce new development rider

    After much discussion and cogitating, Shedfire have finalised discussions with our new rider who’ll be working with us on product development on Shedfire products for the next year.
     
    Mike McTimoney (miketually/mactually) has consistently impressed us with his attitude and dedication to the sport, and we’ll be working with him over the next year to develop cool products.
    We’ve just fired up the CAD machine to start work on Mike’s new bike – a rigid steel singlespeed 29er, which will feature our new “Fathead” tubeset.
     
    Mike came to our attention after his DFL (Dead F*cking Last) finish at the Kielder 100 event, which, for us, sums up the grit and determination that mountainbiking is about.
     
    Shedfire MD Brant Richards said “Mike’s just an inspiration to lots of riders out there, and his inspiring ride at Kielder, when over 60% of the field quit, which just blew us away. We’re looking forward to working on lots of projects with him, though the new downhill bike we’re doing probably isn’t one of them.”

    Watch out, Mike. One minute it will be fame and stardom; next, he’ll dump you without a trace before moving onto the next unsuspecting “development” rider…. ;-)

    Congrats
