We're up and running!
After a flurry of interest over the past week we just had to get a website up and running ASAP, so here it is and we hope you like it!
Things all kicked off with this belt (left) made from a SCHWALBE Ultremo HT tubular and destined for a rider on the Radio Shack Leopard Trek team. A friend put the photo on twitter, and within the week our Facebook page has reached 2000+ people!
Of course this wasn't our first belt destined for the pro ranks (we already have Blel Kadri and Guillaume Bonnifond of AG2R La Mondiale wearing our belts) but it's certainly got us noticed this time around!
Anyway, thanks for all the support so far and we hope you like our new site . . .

...previously, from BUCK!T bicycle tyre belts...
It's been a busy few weeks since we got started with our website here at BUCK!T.
We recently sent off BUCK!T belts to some of the riders on the RadioShackLeopardTrek team, including the tough man of all tough men - Jens Voigt, who rode a strong campaign in this year's Amgen Tour of California - summed up very well by the recent headline - 41 is the new 30.
The Postman's whistle...
Matthew Busche (left) was not about to be outdone by his fellow RSLT team-mate, and followed up Ben's tweets with a photo of himself clad in full team kit, sporting his new Limited Edition SCHWALBE Ultremo HT tubular BUCK!T belt.
Perhaps he'll start a new fashion trend?
Why not visit Matthew's blog and read about his life as a pro-cyclist...?
Both Ben and Matthew will be riding in the Critérium du Dauphiné - 2nd to 9th June.
Friendly faces abroad...
28th May 2013
Some more BUCK!T belts have been arriving in postboxes around the world; and this time, they are putting smiles on the faces of some of the top professional cyclists in the peloton.
First to receive his Limited Edition SCHWALBE Ultremo HT tubular belt was Ben Hermans of the Radio Shack Leopard Trek team.
Ben first quipped about his belt gripping in the rain at the Tour of Belgium (right) and then tweeted us a photo showing it, and his big smile (left).
We hope he enjoys wearing it during some well-earned down-time between races.
