In an effort to make the Radavist’s shirts more available to UK customers, I’ve teamed up with Kinoko Cycles to sell them at their online store. Now, there’s no guarantee these will stay in stock any longer than they do over here, so head to Kinoko while they’re in stock!

Porcelain Rocket: Mr. Fusion Saddle Bag and Support System
mrfusion2

Scott at Porcelain Rocket has been working on this new modular saddle bag system for some time now. Dubbed Mr. Fusion, this harnessed bag system utilizes metal struts that either attach to your seat post, or post clamp.

I know this isn’t the first harness system out there, but I’m pretty stoked on how it turned out.

Gevenalle Cyclocross Derailleurs
2014-08-18-07bbb-Large

Gevenalle, formally Retroshift, has just completed their drivetrain package with two new ‘cross derailleurs. Simplicity is the name of the game and Gevenalle’s approach to rear mech. shifting in cyclocross is the BURD = Blatantly Upgraded Rebranded Derailleur.

“We start with a tough, durable no nonsense unit from Microshift that woks as well as any, but then set about making it better. Derailleur is disassembled and chain tension spring is adjusted to provide 25% more force. This provides a big advantage in keeping the chain planted on your chaining when the course gets rough or mud build up might lift another bikes chain off the chainring. Next we pack the units with good quality grease from the folks at Phil Wood and then we replace the pulleys.”

Introducing the Chris King GripLock
3D_GripLock_Mockup

In 1976 Chris King manufactured the first Chris King headset. It was built to medical grade tolerances and set the standard for what a quality bicycle component should be. Since that time bicycles have changed significantly, from 6-speed road bikes and 45-pound fully ridged mountain bikes to sub 10-pound road bikes and 35-pound dowhnill bikes, the design of today’s modern bicycles has kept pace with the development and style of riders. As riders we want our bikes to perform with out hassle so we can get the most out of our riding experience and it was with an eye on the changes in capabilities and material of todays most advanced bicycles that we developed GripLock™ the next generation of our legendary headsets.

GripLock™ has been in use on Chris King’s headsets for quite sometime and has been featured on our InSet family of headsets since their introduction. Also all 1-1/8″ NoThreadSets have been equipped with GripLock™ since 2010. Our press introduction comes about after we were awarded a patent for this advanced system prior to receiving the patent we wanted to keep our messaging about GripLock™ light now that we have patent security we are thrilled to share this feature with the world.

Chris King’s GripLock™ headset retention device uses an isolated wedge system to separate headset bearing adjustment from steerer tube location thus eliminating loose headsets on long travel mountain bikes while simultaneously removing any chance of headset inflicted fatigue on the lightweight carbon steerer tubes found on modern road forks.

GripLock comes stock on all InSets and 1-1/8″ NoThreadSets. GripLock upgrades are available for 1-1/8″ NoThreadSets currently with out a GripLock bearing cap.”
