Hayley and Samson’s Waxwing Cycles have been a regular customer since their 2018 inception. We’ve just shipped them these three Tourmalet boxes to add to their rental fleet – worth knowing if you’re in the Pittsburgh PA area.
Finished in our Enhanced Powder Coat finish for extra durability – colour on these is RAL5015 Sky Blue.
A few people have been asking when the new Stelvio box for longer MTBs is going to be available to buy. The answer is now – we just haven’t yet had time to get it on the website but that will be resolved by the end of the month.
Meanwhile here are a few images from studio and final fitting check in workshop. Thanks to Tobie Loates @tloates1 for photography and Stu Goodwin @stu_goodwin for time with his beautiful Curtis MTB (curtisbikes.co.uk)
We were delighted to be asked to build a custom tandem box for Paralympic triathlete, Anna Barbaro. Anna is competing in the Triathlon PTVI Class for Italy at the Tokyo 2020 games on August 27th (2021!).
We hadn’t yet made a box for a tandem that couldn’t be split using S&S Couplers – Anna’s bike (a Duratec Big Bang Disc) therefore required a ground-up custom design. There was also a deadline to hit – just ten days to design, engineer and build the box. The challenge here was the sheer length of the box, 182cm – significant additional bracing is required to prevent flexing and bowing – you can see this in the white metal photos below.
Very happy with the end result, especially the finish in Italian azure blue.
Please follow Anna in Tokyo at 2330CET on August 27th
Ben is an airline pilot who takes his bike on long-haul trips from his Australian base. His beautiful new Caffin S&S bike needed the best protection, hence Ben opted for our Galibier model – the box that’s small enough to qualify as a suitcase and therefore avoid excess baggage fees.
And oh, check out his garage floor – clean enough to eat your dinner off!
