Restrap Shoot Uses Magnets to Make Camera Strap Swapping Easy

It doesn’t take much to get my attention when it comes to camera straps. Never one to shy away from innovative design, I was pretty stoked to see the guys at Restrap develop a new “quick release” for neck and wrist lashes. Through utilizing magnets, their design makes swapping straps between your 35mm rangefinder to DSLR and vice versa, a cinch.

Made in the UK by Restrap and at a damn solid pricepoint too!

Head over to Restrap’s Shoot Kickstarter for more information.

Hope Tech: It’s Grim Up North – Showcases New Cranks

Hope’s made in the UK products are top notch and to help create a buzz around their new cranks, they went up North to ride in what many would consider grim conditions with team riders Craig Evans and Sam Flanagan. I’m liking what I see with those cranks, and everything in Hope’s catalog these days. They really are putting in solid work.

Check out a great feature on the Hope Cranks at their site. Availability is slated for late January.

Known primarily for their track bikes, UK-based 14 Bike Co recently relaunched their website and along with it, a new lineup of frames. While staying true to their track roots with the 14R, the brand has dived into dirt with a new 29r hardtail and multiple cyclocross models.

I could go on about how great this lineup looks, but you should just go see the full UK-made range for yourself at the new 14 Bike Co.

I wonder, does Santa ride bikes? Because if he does… These new Rouleur x Vélobici Combativity Merino sweaters look to be doing it right. Made in the UK, limited edition (but still in stock) and a great, classic color – sorry, colour – palette. The USD conversion gets a bit steep but if you’re in the UK and are looking for a new pullover, head over to Rouleur to see more.

Shand Cycles: Stooshie CX Race Machine
Shand_CX

Small-time frame builders can deviate from their normal M.O. and create more precision machines with very little issue, which is why I think framebuilders will forever offer a better fit to your specific cycling needs.

Agendas aside, this Shand Cycles Stooshie cyclocross race machine is based off a Stoater platform, with a few geometric tweaks, tuned in for CX races… oh and camo never hurt! See more at the Shand Flickr!
