Twenty years flies by when you're having fun goes the old adage. In the case of Prendas Ciclismo, it's not far off the mark. Sudden realisation that it was coming up to a couple of decades on from the 3rd bedroom, fax machine/phone and no website beginnings dawned a couple of months back. Should we put something out there or not...? We decided we would and the result is a pretty good reflection of founder Mick Tarrant's career so far.
Mick spent much of his pre-cycling years in the music biz and latterly the 2 overlapped. The "houndstooth" type check is a nod to the Mod Era, the checkerboard too although it's also an homage to the iconic Peugeot jersey
which was our first retro replica. The wheel depicted on the front is a Campagnolo Shamal, an early factory-built aluminium aero wheelset but this one is a "Skamal", referencing again the Mod and Two-Tone era. The wheel doubles as a record player turntable with arm and variable speed control for vinyl of every ilk, entirely appropriate considering Mick's many years as a DJ and promoter.
The ubiquitous "black" jersey is counter balanced by orange or "naranja" as our tribute to the much loved and missed fave pro team Euskaltel-Euskadi. Our 20 years in biz
is represented subtly and sublimely. We hope you like it and thanks for your loyal support over the years, the wheels wouldn't keep spinning without it!
