Emiliano Granado’s Tour de France Zine

I can’t even write an intro for this project, because Emi did such a great job with his. Emiliano is half of Manual for Speed and this summer, he’s bringing you a Tour de France Zine:

“OUI C’EST TOUT is a nod to Pierre Etaix’s Pays de Cocagne. Everyone should watch that immediately. My publication is a 20-page, 4-color, 2-D experience that will make you want to punch something while sippin’ on that Perri.

All-City Cycles: The New Spacehorse Disc

All City’s Space Horse might be the most versatile (and popular) bike in their fleet. These speedy touring, all-rounder bikes have just received a few notable options, the first and most obvious being the integration of disc brakes. Other updates include a removable derailleur hanger and an expanded size range. The new Space Horse Disc comes available in size 43cm to 61cm, with 650b wheels in sizes in the two smallest sizes. Since it’s a disc brake bike, you could swap in your favorite 650b disc wheels in the other sizes too.

The MSRP is $1800 with a Shimano 105 build spec. See more information at All-City!

Porcelain Rocket’s New Dropper Post-Friendly Saddle Bag

The name of the game is innovation. Scott from Porcelain Rocket has been brainstorming ways to incorporate his saddle packs into a dropper post-friendly design for some time now. Working with collaborator Rick Hunter from Hunter Cycles, these two came up with a new system, which I’m assuming will be available shortly. It appears the pack is a bit smaller than the popular Mr. Fusion design, but since its a prototype currently, I’m sure they’ll be addressing that in the near future. For now, follow along at Porcelain Rocket’s Instagram. As for the beer can, well…

Edit: Scott just posted a photo of the rail attachment on Flickr.

Diamondback’s New 27.5 Haanjo EXP Carbon Touring Bike

At first glance, this might seem like just another carbon fiber “all road” bike, but look closely and you’ll see Diamondback made some really clever and practical decisions on their newest touring model, the Haanjo EXP Carbon. First off, the 3×9 drivetrain. While it might not be as light as a 1x SRAM setup, it has the gear range you’ll need for extended dirt tours on steep roads. Next, the wheels. 27.5″ x 2.1 wheels offer plenty of ride-dampening for long days in the saddle. While the Haanjo EXP sports thru axles, it relies on cable-actuated disc brakes and barend shifters for both ease of repair and reliability. I’m liking what I see here. All for $2,300 complete as shown. Check out more at Diamondback.

Manual for Speed introduces Liquid Speed T

Charles Williams11Made Up has done something special with Speed. He’s managed to evoke Speed at its most liquid and fluorescent. A version of Speed so fresh that the paint, if this was paint—if this was a painted UFO shaped like the word Speed flying through the air high above the major cities and culturally important sites of the world, higher than the Goodyear Blimp and all the other flying objects of man—would never have the chance to dry. This Speed UFO would let the world know that Speed is fluid, Speed is bright, Speed is exciting, that Speed is forever new! Until that UFO appears, we have an idea of it down here on Earth and we’ve captured it in a beautiful graphic. The point here is that Speed is so fast it will never dry, never be static, never settle.

Available now on Manual For Speed >> <<

P.S. You might notice a few other new items up in the store. While you can buy them now MFS will making much ado about them throughout the week. ;)
