Rough Riderz regret to announce that we have had to make the difficult decision to sever all links with Project Enduro.
As a concept originally initiated by the Rough Riderz club via our 'Project Gravity X' campaign, this bike building enterprise appears to have completely lost sight of our main objectives:
- To build an affordable, and therefore more accessible, gravity bike in the UK.
- To provide an easy to maintain bike using standard MTB parts, reducing the need for custom-built components.
- To create a better gravity bike design for improved ride-ability and overall performance.
Unfortunately, the Rough Riderz club have been excluded from key design decisions, important product testing and overall progress reporting for the majority of the project's final year, with key feedback/suggestions going unheeded. As a result of this marginalisation, the club does not feel that the project has, or will, meet any of the above criteria and so have now officially resigned as project partners. We feel that if we were to continue our affiliation, our apparent approval would lend false credibility to the current designs. We will therefore not be able to promote and/or recommend their final products to potential customers.
Please stay tuned to this site for exciting new club news early in the new year...
