06-02-2007 Ride-On now FiveTen stockists
We have just taken our first delivery of FiveTen shoes ready for the coming season. For those of you who haven't already heard of FiveTen, they are better known for producing climbing and mountaineering footwear. A few years ago they produced a range of mountain bike shoes for Intense featuring their 'Stealth Rubber' sole. These shoes quickly became the most popular downhill shoe for flat pedal users but were only available in limited numbers. The FiveTen Impact shoes have the same legendary design and have been ridden to victory by Nathan Rennie and Sam Hill (2007 DH World Champion). As FiveTen stockists we can now make these amazing shoes available to you - a must for every flat pedal user! The Impact shoes can be found on our website here:-

29-01-2007 Ride-On staff return from Shimano Japan
As the only shop in the UK to be involved directly with Shimano in Japan, three of our staff members were invited to spend a week there as guests of Shimano. The staff who went were Craig, Leon, and Owen and there they met up with staff members from four other cycle shops from around the world. The Japanese lived up to their reputation of being outstanding hosts and provided everyone with an event filled week which included tours of Shimano factories, Buddhist temples, bullet trains, karaoke, and amazing food. The highlight of the week however was meeting Yoshi Shimano himself, one of the two brothers who own Shimano. This was definately an experience that won't be forgotten.
