Purple Harry

Purple Harry, which was set up in 2010 by Richard Hargreaves and Dean Perry, provide a range of innovative cycle care products including Frame Polish and Protector, Maintenance Spray, Cleaner and Degreaser and Helmet and Shoe Sanitiser. However, the company evolved out of its inaugural and most popular creation; Bike Floss. Bike Floss stemmed from the frustration at the lack of products available to clean the more inaccessible parts of a bike.

"We wanted something that would get right into the nooks and crannies of every component, leaving them clean and free of dirt," Richard explains. "Initially we thought about dental floss, but after an extensive search for industrial grade dental floss proved fruitless, we stumbled on the solution which was right before our eyes - as one of our children had made a craft project out of them – pipe cleaners. We realised that the cleaners had to be abrasive, absorbent and very durable and working with the leading UK manufacturer of pipe cleaners, Bike Floss was developed. It is a totally unique product; simple, effective, reusable and inexpensive. Perfect for components such as the cassette, derailleurs, chain rings, and brake callipers etc that normal brushes and cloths just can't reach."

The company have also just launched biodegradable Dry and Wet Chain Lubes to ensure that the drivetrain runs quietly and gear shifts are super slick post cleaning.

Ventoux Ltd was founded in 2009 by Rob Dulson and Paul Godfrey. The company came about when we noticed a lack of stylish t-shirts for the dedicated road cycling fan and decided we would address the need personally.

Our exclusively designed t-shirts are inspired by the heroes of road cycling, the races they ride and the terrain they ride in.

Following the success of our 'Apres-ride wear for the discerning cyclist' we added a kit bag to our range. Designed exclusively in-house and aimed directly at the sporting cyclist, be they a racer, sportive rider or weekend warrior. We call it The Event Bag. It features two insulated cooler-bag pockets, large main pocket, organiser pocket, tool pocket and an expanding waterproof wet pocket.

The Event Bag has proved so popular that we have added a smaller version, The Gym Bag, and now a huge, wheeled version, The Training Camp Bag, as used by the HotChillee Ride Captains in 2014.
