Well done to Darren and Sarah Mabbott of Silverfish, they are the proud parents of a new baby boy, Woody. You can't go to Interbike if you've got to change nappies and catch projectile vomit so - just for Sarah and Darren - here are the Race Face and Cove products they most wanted to see...

Silverfish couldn’t come to the show, so the show comes to Silverfish

The Race Face Prodigy seatpost premiering at Interbike is said to be suitable for DH and XC use and is made from 2014-T6 heat-treated tube, cold drawn and shot peened for increased fatigue life. The 6061-T6 seatpost head has a 0.6 in layback and is a forged, CNC combo.

It comes in 26.8, 27.s and 31.6mm sizes. All are 350mm long. The weight for the 26.8mm is 260 gms.


The Cove Peeler DH bike has 9.5 inches of rising rate rear travel from either a Fox Vanilla RC or Progressive rear shock. The oversized 7005 aluminiium frame has meaty welds, and lots of them.
