Dave Lloyd – Review on Progress Phantom

PROGRESS WHEELS COMPLETES THE PACKAGE !!! Just come back from my first ride on my brand new Progress Phantom Clinchers from Badger Cycles and I have to say , it’s the fastest I’ve been around my morning circuit for MONTHS .. 18mph hasn’t been seen for a long long time now .. These wheels are the Dogs Doo Dahs and the hubs are just so smooth .. I would rate them higher than Chris Kings for smoothness and rigidity .. The rims are aluminium, and yet they only weigh 1,380 Grams .. Unreal for a pair of Clincher wheels and a price of £550 .. Out of the saddle they are unmoveable with ZERO flex . they are absolutely true both laterally and vertically .. Not 1mm out .. You can see and feel they are a CLASS WHEELSET .. I am so pleased with them and the price is too cheap for this quality wheel IMHO … But, hey, what do I know ..  dave@davelloydcoaching.com ...

Dave Lloyd – Cycling Legend -Becomes Progress Wheels Ambassador !!

Badger Cycles are thrilled to announce that Dave Lloyd has agreed to ride Progress Wheels in 2017. After his first ride on Progress Phantom Dave enthused “ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT – AMAZING GREAT WHEELS – JUST AVERAGED 18MPH WITH 2000 FEET OF CLIMBING ON A TRAINING RIDE – THAT’S QUICKER THAN I’VE BEEN FOR YEARS! THE HUBS ARE SO SMOOTH AND I CANT BELIEVE THE QUALITY OF THE WHEELS” Dave is now looking forward to receiving his first set of carbon tubular wheels – the A500 – early in the new year. About Dave Lloyd – “The Coach”   There can be little doubt that Dave is the most experienced Coach in the UK, such is his background and the Track Record he has accumulated in the space of 18 years .. He has done things other coaches have never done and his record speaks for itself.. Dave’s own catch phrase is “AIN’T NO REWIND” A few examples of Dave’s acumen as a Coach are …. Dave took on Carole Gandy as a 60 year old who had tried to win the BBAR for TWENTY FIVE YEARS … Her first year with Dave, she won the 100 mile TT Championship and realised her fairy tale when she finally took the BBAR.. The oldest women EVER to do so ….. In Carl Saint’s first year with Dave , he improved beyond belief, when he produced a sub 20 minute 10 mile TT, a sub 50 minute 25 mile TT and did 1.43 for a 50 mile TT and also finished with a Bronze medal in the 50 mile Champs. Dave helped Andy...

Spoke Booster – Coming Soon

Progress news Creaking wheels? 11.10.2016 Avoid noises and creaks thanks to Progress Spoke Booster There are many wheels in the market with Aero Spokes which are prone to creaking when ridden. Due to increased spoke surface and higher levels of friction associated with their design, many wheels offer no solution to this even when spoke tensions are adjusted! In one month Progress will be launching the SPOKE BOOSTER which will offer a solution to this common problem by increasing wheel stiffness and therefore reducing creaking! Contact Badger Cycles Today to pre order...

Progress Air 38mm Clincher – Product Analysis

I have had a few requests recently to detail the specification of Progress Air. Simply put Air is the Clincher version of the A380 which is the Tubular version of the Wheelset. The Wheelset utilises Progress Turbine Ultra Hubs which are simply beautiful works of art. Every single component of the Hub is serviceable and all bearings and drive rings can either be replaced when required or upgraded. New for 2016 is the introduction of the new Nitro Hub which offers a little less weight and straight pull spoke technology { should it be required, Honestly though Badger cycles are not fans! } In terms of comparing these with the competion , We are not here to do that, of course we would favour our Brand ! BUT YOU HAVE A LOOK ! What we can promise is that no company in the UK currently offers a Wheelset to rival Air on specification and weight and the chances are you might have £300 – £500 left in your pocket. Badger Cycles also have a demonstration set available either direct of through a choice selection of dealers in the UK. Contact info@badgercycles.co.uk for details.  ...
