High range cassettes have changed mountain biking and touring forever and Italian component maker Ingrid just announced its 10-52t 52T10 cassette. The 52T10 is CNC machined in two parts from solid stock steel and aluminum. After machining, the steel cluster is heat treated while the aluminium cluster gets a hard anodizing process. These 12-speed cassettes sport a 520% gear range and are made in Italy, shipping today from Ingrid.
The XCR75 is the ultimate luxury performance bicycle in the world. Manufactured in a limited edition of only 20 pieces, it combines the world’s lightest steel tubeset, Columbus’ stainless steel XCR, with an “all road” geometry that combines cues from Cino Cinelli’s 1950s Supercorsa designs with contemporary advances in endurance riding positions, with industry-changing Classified internal hub system (with an exclusive splash anodization finish explicitly developed for Cinelli) with probably the most stylish handlebar bag in the world (custom edition of the fabled Ron’s Bikes Fabs Abs) a Brooks C-13 that has never previously existed and was made exclusively to our specifications and many, many, other details.

The Whirlpool Hip Pack – is the pack that didn’t exist on the market until San Util created it. It is an overstuff-able design without any zippers to blow out, sturdy seams, and lot of carrying options. A removable bladder/sleeve and bottle holsters lend to about 100oz of water carrying capacity.
It was designed with stability, comfort, and simplicity front of mind. The name was picked because the pack is a water-carrying machine with a roll-top closure, hence, The Whirlpool. Its wings are designed with as much area as we can get to help distribute the heavy water load (this is also why we decided to opt for two size options). They are sewn in at two points per wing to give them the flexibility to move with the rider’s body.
A lot is going on with the Whirlpool pack, so roll on over to San Util to check it out.
The Super Professional is All-City’s fast and nimble bike for commuting, city riding, and more. It’s fitted with rack and fender mounts and previously came as a flat bar singlespeed. For 2023, the Super Pro comes in a drop bar singlespeed option now, as well as a flat bar singlespeed, and flat bar geared, as well as three new colors. Roll on over to All-City to see the full spread.
A full frame bag custom-made to perfectly fit the Wilde Supertramp. When searching for a bag partner, Wilde looked locally to the folx who we think are the best in the business, the North Shore’s own, Cedaero. Their commitment to quality and to sourcing only made-in-the-USA components is something that resonated with Wilde
The two companies worked together to select colors and combinations that are both stylish and timeless, and that will age to perfection with use. These frame bags are fully featured with a non-drive side map pocket and a lace-up top. Each size is designed to mount to the three-pack and bottle mounts on the down and top tubes of the corresponding frame size.
