We love getting new toys to try out - this time Dave from Orange Mountain Bikes kindly came up to the Tweed Valley with the new Gyro to put it through its paces - turns out it's a bit of a trail weapon!

We asked Jake Hood from Alpine Bikes Glentress to show Dave around some classic trails and some cheeky off piste to show you what it can do in capable hands!

Don't take our word for it though - we have a demo bike at Glentress which you can ride any time (pre booking advised) or come down to our massive demo day this weekend!

Lots of nice new bikes coming through for 2012 just now - we just took delivery of some lovely new Carb-Os from Orange in our Edinburgh, Innerleithen and Inverness stores!

With a fantastic spec, including a sweet Easton wheelset, these are great value @ £1899. We have 54 + 56cm in stock so get them while you can!
