Bell’s New Star Pro Road Helmet
Bell_Star_Pro-yellow

During my discussion with Bell at Interbike, I mentioned that the average consumer with any amount of eye for style or design, doesn’t really care about how aero their helmets are. We, if I may be so bold, would rather a helmet look good, keep us cold and protect our lives. Sometimes, however, style and aerodynamics overlap. In my opinion, that’s what the Bell New Star Pro is. An aero helmet with style…

With an innovative, closable “vent” system, these helmets not only offer aerodynamics, but I’d like to think, additional warmth during cold seasons.

Check out full specs below and see more at Bell.

Richard Sachs Cinelli Bar Tape Available Now
RS_bartape-cinelli

Richard teased me with this yesterday but I had no idea it’d be available today! Available in an array of colors, this RS embossed Cinelli bartape was made in limited numbers, so head over to Richard Sachs to get a few rolls.

Am I crazy to think that “#ATMO” bar tape would also sell really well?

Check out Fairdale’s 2015 Parser Singlespeed Cross Bike
Fairdale

I know a lot of you have expressed an interest in a sub $1,000 cross bike complete. If you asked me back in 2010 when the Fairdale Parser was first launched, I wouldn’t have even considered it as an option, but now, the 2015 Parser is exactly that: a singlespeed cross bike for under a grand.

Head over to Fairdale to read more and look for the 2015 Parser in your local Fairdale dealer, any day now.

Zwift Opens the Door to Social Indoor Cycling
Zwift

This one’s coming in off left-field but I know plenty of you use trainers during the winter months. Here’s a new social platform that incorporates indoor cycling. Check the full scoop out on Zwift:

“Just in time for winter’s short days and blustery weather, Zwift, the new leader in virtual indoor cycling, has announced the official launch of its public Beta. Thanks to its unique Zengine–a massive, multiplayer video game platform – Zwift delivers a fun, social and entertaining indoor cycling experience. The company’s Beta launch was celebrated with an event that was held simultaneously at Rapha Cycle Clubs in London, New York and San Francisco. Zwift’s public Beta is initially open to several hundred people and the company expects to allow access to its virtual world to the general public this winter. The Zwift platform is hardware agnostic and connects to a wide range of devices. The minimum requirement is a trainer, ANT+ cadence/speed sensor and ANT+ dongle although an electronically controlled trainer can give you enhanced experience.”

Steal Your Shop Top Caps
GSC-caps-dancing-bears

This image is rad on so many levels. I’m thankful for two things: shops like GSC and my parents for giving me all their Dead albums to listen to when I was a kid. Unfortunately, these top caps aren’t available online, you’ll have to head to Golden Saddle Cyclery to score one.

State Bicycle Co: Hell Ride

Living in a place where it’s usually over 100 degrees and 70% humidity, I’d rather be swimming than riding at high noon. Then again, the Hell Ride is something special…

Twin Six’s New Standard CX Frame
cx6

The third new offering from Twin Six is arguably one of the most in-demand offerings: a steel, disc cross bike. The Standard CX is made from 853 and comes with a carbon fork. It’s sold as a frameset only and will be released next spring, unfortunately missing this year’s cross season but as readers of this site are well aware, a cross bike lives in the woods year-round.

See more details and photos below!
