It's great when we send out a new bike and hear back from a stoked customer who's taken it out for the first time. It's even better when we get some pictures back. Wil's a pro photographer so he decided to go one (or two) better...

Wil's bike is a stock Edit v2 Sport. He's made one or two little additions; a Oneup chain guide and some Wellgo pedals, but otherwise it's a pretty much standard build. Still, we think it's a lot of bike for the money (£2299 at time of writing) and it certainly looks the part.

The day after Wil's bike arrived, the Instagram posts started (check out Wil's feed here).  We kinda got the sense Wil was happy with his new bike:


"The lovely Airdrop Bikes Edit arrived at my door yesterday and what a machine it is. What you get for your cash is awesome, and the 'keep it simple stupid' ideal of the company is awesome. What you end up with is a bike that just works. Simple, and to me, that makes it stunning. Thanks to James for building it for me and Ed for designing an awesome product."

Wil's bike is an Edit v2 Sport in size small, which at time of writing is in stock and available to buy. It has a Rockshox Monarch RT3 rear shock, 2018 Rockshox Revelation RC DebonAir 160mm forks, a SRAM NX 1x11 groupset and a Rockshox Reverb Stealth dropper. Why not take a look at the full spec over on the V2 Sport product page

I've said it before but I'll say it again: we have the best customers. I don't know what we've done to deserve it but we have some awesome people on Airdrop bikes. It's been a bit of a surprise and it continues to be one of the best things about running a small bike brand. I just want to say thanks to Wil for going to the time and effort to produce these fantastic shots, and for sharing them with us.

If you've got a minute, why not take a look at Wil's portfolio over on his site: www.wilcollinsphoto.co.uk

Brett came to us with an idea for a custom built Bitmap hardtail a few weeks back. First time out he won a Northern Downhill Series race on it, so we thought we'd take a look at this unusual but clearly very fast bike.

Bike Check: Richard's Edit v2

Richard's a Sheffield local and we see him out riding in the woods every now and then. He was stoked on the local brand thing and wanted to stick with British brands for his build, so we called in Hope and Burgtec to finish the job. The results are tidy...

Burgtec is the definition of a British rider owned brand, making some of the best components out there. When the opportunity came up to spec Burgtec components on our bikes, we weren't going to let that pass. We're now offering Burgtec bars, stem, grips & saddle as standard on our top-end bikes.
