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!

Summer is here and so is the first episode of the Alpine Bikes 2012 video series!

In Episode One we introduce three of our sponsored riders who we will supporting in 2012.

Rab Wardell is an elite level mountain bike racer living in Glasgow, Scotland. Rab will be competing in events including the British Cross Country Series with the aim of competing in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in 2012. Rab will be riding Trek Superfly and Superfly 100 29ers.

You can keep up to date with all the latest news from Rab at alpinebikesracing.com

Next up is Calum Magowan who is our youngest sponsored rider at only 14! He has already enjoyed success in the 2011 British Championship and British NPS Series and will take the step up to National Youth level in 2012 riding a Trek Elite 9.8

Neil Wilson is a long established rider who will race for Alpine Bikes in the SDA Series, European Masters Championships and enduro events in 2012 on his Trek Session 88.

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!
