Postman Pat paid us a little visit...

With the amount of snow we've recently had, we decided to sack off work for the day and head up the golf course to shred the bunkers on our bikes. Obviously it was a good laugh, but it was made better by an extended pub lunch after, and returning to the office to discover that the postie had been- here's what he brought us...

...Firstly, and most excitedly was my new longterm jump frame. Only the other day I started getting the Morewood ready for action again, but the UK importers need the frame back. Ironic then, that this fluro yellow Cove Foreplay should turn up- so I'll be doing a frame swap anytime now. It's seriously so bright that all other yellows look mundane!

In the same box was a whole bunch of new Race Face kit- the new, and classy looking Diablos gloves with kevlar panels and a 'country gent brown' colourway.

Looking very similar to the mega-popular 661 Kyle Strait pad is the new Diablos knee pad, with it's lairy colourway. Those wanting something darker will like the black/grey colourway.

Race face knee- look familiar?: race face knee- look familiar?

Bright jerseys are always a photoshoot bonus as they stand out a mile off in our grey climate...

Yep, that's right- purple is back. And it won't go away. These are going on a pretty special bike...

Yep, purple just won't go away...: yep, purple just won't go away...

Most people in the office turned their noses up at this brown Bel Air saddle from SDG, but I think it's class- and it looks amazing against the yellow of the Cove Foreplay frame...

Classic in brown: classic in brown

Tyre sealant is always a hot product at MBUK towers due to the amount of tubeless tyres we test- so we're always searching for the best sealant out there. This sealant from MSC bikes has been developed in conjunction with Maxxis- so it promises a lot.

Maximuscle is well known for it's fancy Whey powder enriched muscle proteins, but this range of recovery foods is a first. As soon as we've gobbled and guzzled the lot, we'll let you know how it fares...

Finally, and you may laugh, are these five toed shoes- which happen to be the single most comfy thing I've ever slipped my feet in to. They just make you look a little odd. Quite what they're for, I'm not sure. Not for BMX track riding, thats for sure...

Not good for witches: not good for witches
