Race Face, Roach and Rock n Roll lubricant distributors Silverfish have just added another top Canadian brand to their under-the-carpet operation.
We absolutely love them and Cove bikes have already established a cult following for their phenomenal singletrack handling and massive strength, but they’ll now be expanding beyond their previous importers On Your Bike in London.
Darren of Silverfish is understandably excited and sees Canada as an excellent developing ground for bikes suited to UK conditions;
“Vancouver is a mountain bike Mecca and you truly would not believe the riding opportunities in British
Columbia as well as the riders themselves. This lends itself to
improvements in components and frame design that are more suited to the
British market where hard-core hardtails and bombproof components are
increasingly being demanded. On top of that, the weather is just as crappy
in Canada in the winter as it is in the UK so we also don’t have any mud
and water issues”.
The current line up of
Cove frames includes the following: the Columbus tubed steel Handjob; the
aluminium T62 Stiffee FR and Stiffee SL; the titanium 325 Hummer and the
aluminium T62 full suspension G Spot.” New slalom and downhill bikes are in the pipeline.
