Shape bicycles is the newest partner of the Breizh Troopers team. This collective was created in 2011, it was basically a group of friends who like to ride their MTB, their motto is "we ride for fun, and no headache" ! Without forgetting our common passion for music, as you can see through their name and mainly with their logo inspired by Eddie, the Iron Maiden’s mascot. This partnership is illustrated by our logo and our website adress on their new 2020 jerseys. Since last year, Shape bicycles produced the Racing sprocket, aimed at MTB practice, we will soon decline our famous bar ends fir MTB.
The bad new of the beginning of this new year comes from the USA, accurately from FBM. Steve Crandall himself announced on the website of his brand, stopping all activities after creating the workshop in 2001... Below an extract from Steve’s announcements : “And since we started as a a crew, some day we will finish as a crew [...] The heart of FBM is the people and that will never change. But FBM isn’t just for the people, it IS the people.
Thanks Steve and the FBM crew for the inspiration and the motivation.
We have received our first batch of 4 bolts Racing sprockets, available in 32 and 34T, polished aluminum or black anodized. Firstly, this product was intended to meet the request of the father of the Shape bicycles boss, envious to see all these BMX sprockets, without being able to built up one on his MTB. After publishing some photos of this prototype, several people were also interested in building up a Shape bicycles sprocket on their bikes. With this product we are expanding our range, while enables us to familiarize with new standards such as 4 bolts fixing (104mm), narrow/wide teeth which avoid using chain guide. Go to our Products page for more details about our Racing sprocket.
