Sim Works Taco Pedal and Burrito Rack $88/200
Teaming up with MKS and Nitto once again, Sim Works has two new products we’re salivating over, and not just because we’re hungry right now. The Taco Pedal features replaceable grip studs and bearings and features a large, 110mm x 105mm, platform for all-day riding.
Meanwhile, the Burrito rack clamps directly to your seatpost and either rack bosses mid-stay or clamps if your frame is bare. It will cradle your luggage whether it’s a rolled-up tent, jacket, camping chair, or a massive burrito and has a 10kg weight limit.
These two items are hitting Sim Works in April and May so we’ll update you as events warrant.
Wolf Tooth Remote Pro Dropper Lever $69.95
Have you used a Wolf Tooth dropper lever? Well, if you have you know it’s one of the smoothest on the market and the brand just upped the ante even more. ReMote Pro is cycling’s most adjustable and refined dropper lever. It features more adjustment than any other dropper lever so you can configure your cockpit based on riding style. It also features a machined assembly for durability and ergonomics. Eight clamp options are available that are compatible with most MTB handlebars and can integrate with several brake clamps for a clean and tidy cockpit.

Sunshine or rain, your gear will stay dry and protected since they are made of 100% waterproof TPU fabric with welded seams and Hypalon reinforcements. You can secure them to your pannier rack with camming velcro straps at the top and used the lower compression strap to loop through the rack and guarantee that your bags don’t turn into dumbo ears when you hit a bump, no matter how rough.
