I’ve got a mole over at Brooks in the EU and they just sent me teaser images of their new all-weather carbon Cambium saddles. These new saddles address the glaring issue with the standard all-weather Cambiums, the weight! With the all-weather design and the carbon body, the saddles will be substantially lighter. Available in white or black with more information to follow…
With more and more drop bar bikes adopting MTB tires, Industry Nine believes wheels need to be updated. From tire fit to drivetrain spec. The TRA, or Torch Road Alloy, was designed to accel in a space where a road-focused wheelset might not be enough, but a straight-up mountain wheelset would be overkill. Ideal scenarios for the TRA line-up would be in the CX start grid, fast moving, light-duty off-road explorations, or hammering out long days on Forest Service roads.

Mission Workshop are wizards of bag manufacturing. Their packs have some of the most well thought-out detailing in the industry and with all the hidden buckles, pockets, and straps, come added weight – especially considering you could already be carrying camera gear or a laptop! To alleviate that, the brand often puts out VX material bags that shed some of the weight. The newest bag to get the VX treatment is the RHAKE. A unique bag that pairs exceptionally well with their camera insert. As with all their bags, these are made in the USA with a lifetime warranty. Head to Mission Workshop for more information.

I’m not a betting man, but I’d wager that a lot of people who grew up skateboarding are now involved in cycling to some degree. The same goes for some of the employees at the Vanilla Workshop, who have long wanted to make skate decks. Well, they’re now a reality, available in limited quantities in sizes from 8″ – 8.5″ and in stock now at Speedvagen.
There are a few of us out in the world of cycling who have always ridden Time pedals. In a world seemingly dominated by Shimano clipless systems, there are still diehard fans of the French company. It’s been years since Time updated their pedal platform and believe me when I say it’s been long overdue. With recent models lasting mere months, instead of years like their predecessors, I was thinking about making the switch to Shimano. Then the Speciale was announced. (more…)
