We're over the moon to see Starling Cycles selected for the Dirt100 - a collection of Dirtmountainbike.com's 100 best products of 2017.
Dirt's Steve Jones has been a huge fan of the bike since we first met him. He's been massively supportive of Starling, has provided plenty of great feedback and a big part of our success so far.
Being selected for the Dirt100 is a huge boost for what we're doing here in a shed in Bristol. We know our bikes work, we know steel is an incredible material for bicycles, we know our design is fast, fun and simple. Dirt's seal of approval means that you guys don't just have to take our word for it ...
Dirt selected the Starling Cycles Murmur 29" to feature in the line up. They've said ‘It feels different, its silence a far cry from some of the cable rattling, bottom bracket creaking, overpriced carbon".
The team tested the Murmur back to back and against the clock with several other big guns. "That this, the 145mm Starling Murmur was fastest pretty much blew our minds, leaving us staring at the stopwatch in disbelief. The bike we thought might be the slowest before heading onto the hill was in fact the quickest".
You can read more over on the Starling Cycles page on the Dirt100.
