“So these guys think they are fast!”

IMG_2847 The above quote was from an escorting motor cycle policeman commenting on the Cycling Edge “Rider Support Vehicle” at Hepburn Springs as we watched the lead bunch drop down hill to the Lavendula turnoff .

Rider support? No not for these guys but for the two who were just fitted and ordered their PARLEE Z5Slis at Cycling Edge in Woodend! Lunch was very pleasant at Beer and Breakfast in Daylesford – do yourself a favour!


And,  to top it off, this guy won the day!

Transformation from Z4 to Z1 is complete!

How do you measure your race bike?

Do you assess your bike in terms of frames per season or seasons of sustained performance per frame?

When you “ride a bit”, “race a bit” and love to have a real go… what you expect to do with your bike after a solid 2 years and countless kms?

Replace it? Repair it? or can you just touch up the paint and strap on your ” RIDEWISER legs” and give it another season of flogging? and another…and another…..

In March after NAHBS I visited Paraic McGlynn to see what was happening with this concept. My prime interest was continuing education around bike fit but the idea of a fully integrated centre of cycling  excellence was compelling. In March it was a factory shell with some framework up.

So having introduced Kung Fu and the travelling VIS Tri squad to FASTER, eight months on it was time to get first hand experience to see how things have changed. As indeed it has.

Remarkable progress, a stunning and cohesive complex, a lot of “Secret Squirrel” IP that isn’t yet for public consumption and a business model that is just charging forward.

Beg, steal, borrow just make a booking with your future success!

The display also features our new stand in black.
