Were we too young and was this an easy way out? Should we go down that road of giving up riding our bikes all together? But after two operations on my foot, the last one ending with plates andnumerous screws after taking a hard fall, it was getting harder to stay on my road bike. By now not only was I getting frustrated but my other half had started developing muscle and joint problems as well.
Now with 5 locations throughout Devon, the Crediton Bike Shed was born out of MRS Motor Spares in 1994. The volume of business necessitated a move to the current, much larger premises allowing us tomore than quadruple our stock holding, and to successfully instigate and co-ordinate many events within the Devon area. The acquisition of the Barnstaple Bike Shed widened our customer base significantly and enabled us to expand our range of products and services even further throughout the Devon area.
Based on the design of the top end Lazer Z1 helmet (currently used by Team LottoNL-Jumbo) the new Lazer Blade is a refreshing departure from the current helmet trend. Where many brands like Giro andSpecialized have been pushing out progressively more expensive and higher end models, it's nice to see a company put serious effort into improving their less expensive options. Coming in at a very affordable £59.99 the new Lazer Blade uses the same Advanced Rollsys Sytem (ARS) as the Z1.
