Mosaic Updates the MT-2 Hardtail Mountain Bike
The MT-2 is designed with modern geometry and componentry in mind, making it the ultimate trail companion. Intended to be built with a 120mm suspension fork, and with ample clearance for 29×2.6 tires, the MT-2 is a modern XC hardtail, with a hint of rowdy trail shredding built in. A size-specific straight gauge titanium tubeset delivers a lightweight and exceptionally strong frameset that is built to be durable, comfortable, and exceptionally fun to ride.
Batch Built in Mosaic Stock Geometry, a limited number of MT-2’s are available now with delivery in 2-4 weeks pending finishwork selection. Frames can be configured one of two ways, with external full-length shift, brake, and internal dropper routing, or for eTap AXS shifting with a dropper port in the seat tube and external rear brake. All cables run externally through cable guides on the underside of the downtube. Made to order, custom MT-2’s are also available through our normal build process and carry a 12 week lead time.

Swift Industries Olliepack Seat Bag $180
If your idea of a good time includes shredding singletrack or ripping rougher terrain on bikepacking adventures, the Olliepack Seat Bag is your new back-of-bike best friend!
Today, Swift Industries announced the release of the Olliepack Seat Bag, a 6L roll-top saddle bag made out of recycled Ecopack material. Swift worked closely with brand ambassadors Anton Krupicka and Hailey Moore to bring a lightweight, minimalist pack to the table. Moved by the slogan “wag is whack,” each design choice on the Olliepack Seat Bag was driven by the team’s fierce conviction that bike bags shouldn’t sway. Rather, they should move with the bicycle as an integrated component. To accomplish this mission, the bag itself is more compact than many on the market and the profile of the pack maximizes contact with the saddle and seat post. The Olliepack design has uniquely positioned attachment straps that increase vertical compression and minimize lateral movement.
- A mesh pocket on the underside of the Olliepack is ideal for wrappers, tools and small accessories.
- Distinguishable design nudges for easy attachment
- Reflective detailing for increased rider-safety
- Available in three colors: Coyote, Black, Teal

PNW Components Pebble Tool Review $37
Pocket tools can be pretty remarkable. Over the past few months, there have been a number of small, compact tools on the market, all with their own clever spin on a very commonly available platform. PNW’s latest release is the Pebble, a small, compact toolset with a big surprise.
In an era where many companies would try to knock off Dynaplug’s superior design, PNW incorporated its plugger ends into the Pebble. The sharp brass tip that makes Dynaplugs so effective is protected by the end of a 6mm socket so you don’t have to worry about plugging your leg or hand by accident (they’re not that sharp anyway.)
The Pebble won’t break the bank at $37 either!
