If you love the look of Cane Creek’s ma EE Wings cranks but wanted to know what they’d look like covered in LSD-induced unicorn pee, well, today is your day. These cranks look insane. $1,100 insane but wow. I love that the team at Cane Creek had this epiphany. Head on over to Cane Creek to see more details and if you’re a big balleur, to order.
Since taking over the manufacturing and distribution of the eeBrake in 2016, Cane Creek has done up the brakes with fancy limited edition colorways a total of six times, with this month’s announcement being the latest and greatest. The El Real color scheme features a vibrant violet anodizing mated to the classic jet black caliper. To buy a pair of the eeBrake El Real Edition in regular mount and direct mount versions, you must place your order at your local Cane Creek retailer by September 18, 2019 with expected delivery in November 2019.
Named after North America’s largest salamander that calls the streams of the Blue Ridge Mountains home, Cane Creek’s new bottom bracket, the Hellbender, looks to up the ante of bearing design. It starts out like most bottom brackets and is machined from 6061 – T6 aluminum, then it receives a two-stage anodize black and gold finish. What makes it different however is Cane Creek’s all-new Hellbender Neo bearing technology:
“The bearings incorporate Swedish manufacturer SKF’s patented MTRX technology – an oil-filled, solid polymer matrix that completely fills the free space in the bearing. During use, oil is released from micro-pores in the polymer, continuously lubricating the bearings.”
The Hellbender is available in BSA threaded, PF41, PF30, and BB30 variations and retails between $120 and $150 depending on the options. See more specifications at Cane Creek.
A lot of companies are standing behind their products with Lifetime Guarantees now. Cane Creek Cycling Components is the latest brand to announce a 100% lifetime guarantee on all 110 series headsets – including bearings – purchased after August 28, 2019.
Cane Creek Cycling Components and LaMere Cycles just announced the pre-order for their eeWings Titanium cranks optimized for modern fat bike hub and bottom bracket standards. The fatbike crank kit will come with a longer bottom bracket spindle to allow for optimal frame clearance and q-factor.
LaMere Cycles will be selling the eeWings fat bike cranks as an option on their complete bike models or aftermarket consumer-direct at a retail of $1049. Those interested in pre-ordering can do so now at Lamere Cycles with expected delivery in November. Check out more specifications below.
The Helm surprised me. A lot. Cane Creek’s front suspension fork has it all, including a high price up until now. The Helm is now $899 and it’s not often we hear of brands dropping hundreds off of their product’s retail! See more at Cane Creek.
Now through September 21st, Cane Creek’s in-house brand eeBrakes – formally eeCycleworks from California – is offering a pink and black, El Rosado limited edition set of these amazing caliper brakes, complete with eeBarKeeps and eeNut preload stem cap. They’re available in regular and direct mount sets and in my experience offer the most tire clearance out of any caliper I’ve used. Plus they look damn good. This kit isn’t cheap at $700, but in my experience with the eeBrakes, they make a rim brake bike stop like a disc brake bike. Check out more at Cane Creek.
Since acquiring eeCycleworks and their phenomenal brakes last year, Cane Creek has been implementing ee’s MO to products within their lineup. The eeSilk is a recent example of that. Weighing in at only 295 grams, this post weighs around the same as many rigid posts on the market, while offering 20mm of vertical compliance, improving the ride quality on rough surfaces and reducing fatigue on long rides. By comparison, a Thomson mountain post weighs 228 grams. The eeSilk post comes in 27.2mm only, but Cane Creek offers a variety of shims to make it work on your bike. Each eeSilk is is made in North Carolina. You can see more at Cane Creek.
A legendary crankset returns for modern riding, with world-renown weight savings (400 grams!) and classic looks. Head to Cane Creek to order their new eeWings ti mtb cranks for $999.00. Hey, lookin this good sometimes comes at a hefty cost.
