So far:MBR seat packMBR chainstay protector -- not really big enough for my fat tubed EVO2 frame, so held on with cable ties.MBR crudguard -- just as good as the real thing.MBUK Basta rear light -- looks really cheap but is surprisingly good.MBR gear cable -- teflon coated and smooth as silk.And BM have promised to send me a star fangled nut and stem cap for a lights review I wrote -- I'll save them for the spring when I fit the new forks I bought in the Evans sale recently

I got a free pair of gloves once, for a review that never got published...Rocket Parts Scary Fast Speedsters - the best gloves that aren't available to buy from anywhere.And Tim Flooks once sent me a teeny bottle that he'd filled with light shock oil.MBR Gear cable.I don't have the spokey-dokeys any more.

Well my Marin is built up with stuff of my wrecked Merlin which the insurance company compensated me for so I suppose everything bar the frame, one wheel and the pedals were free .
