Every bike that came from Patrick Morewood’s influence on the brand that he originally set up (that’ll be Morewood Bikes) was not only superb looking but also incredibly good to ride. He sold his company a couple of years back and is now developing a new range of bikes to suit his own tastes.
We have the OneTen29 here at Bike Magic Towers and having ridden it for a weekend already we can safely say that it ticks all the right boxes: it’s fun to ride, nimble, forgiving and fast. As Morewood himself puts it, it is “designed to cover challenging terrain and long distances efficiently, comfortably and masterfully”.
We like it a lot, on first impressions at least.
There will be a full test coming soon but for now check through our gallery. Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of your future bike?
Verdict so far
We love it. As a UK trail bike we can really see this taking off. Agile, fun to ride and yet stable at speed, the Pyga OneTen29 gives an inspired ride. We’ll have to see how it fares long-term but so far, so good.
What Pyga say:
When miles of rolling trails lie ahead and you want to rip till your chest burns, but your heart smiles, this is your machine.
