We’re still here…

We’re still here…

In these times when flying away with your bike seems, at best, rather frivolous, I’d like to express sincere thanks to customers and suppliers alike for their continued support – never has it been more clear that we’re all in this together.

 

We’re still here – currently working our way through production of March orders. Social-distancing precautions mean that everything is considerably slower but we’re nearly there.

 

A note to anyone in the UK involved in the manufacture of equipment involved in fighting Covid-19, we’ll soon have production capacity for sub-contract light assembly – offered on a not-for-profit basis. Please contact here or via the website form.

 

Best wishes. Stay safe.

Buxumbox Ventoux and Tourmalet – slight seconds sale

As many of you know, we moved in to a larger unit last month – we’re now settled in to the new facility and running production at full bore.

There were some minor casualties during the move though – a number of the screen-printed panels that are built in the boxes suffered very minor scratches and/or scuffs. We’re talking very minor – not even enough to create a dent or scratch the substrate aluminium.

This does mean that we can’t sell them as first quality product and hence we’re going to build these up and offer them for sale at a 10% discount on a first-come/first-served basis. We have:

  • 2x Ventoux (can be built to Road or MTB spec)
  • 2x Tourmalet H1
  • 1x Tourmalet H2
  • 1x Tourmalet H3

If this is of interest, please contact us via form on website or Facebook.

Super-stretch custom Ventoux MTB box

Super-stretch custom Ventoux MTB box

Here’s a good example of a custom box – based on the Ventoux MTB but stretched in length and height to accommodate a XL size Pole Stamina with a 136cm wheelbase. This Canadian customer also wanted mounting brackets so he could use the box to ship his Trek Domane.

We’ve moved!

We’ve moved!

Only 100 metres up the road – but nearly three times the space – finally room to swing a cat!

We had outgrown Unit 4 pretty much a year ago – the new premises will allow us to reduce build times and undertake more custom work.

Visitors welcome – now at:

Unit 6D, Cranmere Road, Okehampton, Devon, EX20 1UE

Jamie’s Tourmalet

Jamie’s Tourmalet

Jamie from Trinity Sports Management needed a box for his trip to Tour Down Under – here it is (in RAL1015 powder-coat finish).

 

As he said, the box was “Turning heads all over Aus.”

Tourmalet workstand set now available!

Tourmalet workstand set now available!

These have been a while in development but are now shipping. Thank you to the four test pilots for all your valuable feedback!

Convert your Tourmalet box into a fully functioning workstand with these two lightweight fittings – these are attached using the latches on the box for a secure fit.

Rear wheels and pedals can be installed to frame to allow full function of drivetrain and rear brakes.

The front fitting clamps the front for dropout (both QR and thru-axle hubs versions available) whilst the rear fitting supports the bottom bracket shell, secured by a strap. There is plenty of fore and aft movement available to accommodate all bikes from the shortest track bike to longer touring machines.

Front fitting has a handy tray for organising tools and components

Fully compatible with all Tourmalet boxes shipped to date.

Available here or as an option when ordering a new Tourmalet box.
