Spurcycle’s Tool

IMO, there’s only one Tool, but the latest product from Spurcycle is giving the band a run for its money. Made in the USA from titanium, the Tool comes with a case and many, many bits. They’re up for pre-order now, with a pricepoint of $69. If the Tool performs like the Spurcycle bell, we’ve got a winner!

Give Your Spurcycle Bell a Boost with the Belltower

If you’ve ever used a Spurcycle bell on a MTB, then you know how difficult it can be to properly locate it between you grips, brakes, dropper and shifter modules. The Belltower alleviates that. Acting like a spacer lift, the Belltower puts the Spurcycle bell a bit higher up… They’re $6.95, made in the USA and in stock now at Lindarets.

Chris King 40th Anniversary Spurcycle Bell

To commemorate their 40th anniversary, Chris King is launching an extremely limited collection of olive drab anodized hubs, headsets and bottom brackets. Then to add a special topping on this already tempting cake, they did a collaboration with Spurcycle, anodizing the bell’s hammer to match. These are in stock now at Chris King, so get on it!

Chris McNally for Spurcycle… BOTTLES!

San Francisco has something for every cyclist. If you’re into road riding, there’s plenty to fill the afternoon with hairpin turns that bank into the fog. Or if gettin’ dirty is more your liking, the ribbons of brown pow await.

Chris McNally has illustrated the “skinny” and the “dirty” in two bottles for Spurcycle. In stock now and ready to ship!

Gabe’s Falconer Rigid 29’r MTB

Gabe’s Falconer Rigid 29’r MTB

The more I see the work of Cameron Falconer in person, the more I love his bicycles, especially his rigid 29’r model. Designed for everything from trail riding to multi-day bikepacking, these bikes have multiple layers of functional details. From the multiple water bottle braze-ons, to the segmented forks and custom racks, these bikes can be outrigged to take on anything you throw at them.

Gabe‘s bike in particular is a prime example. I first saw it in person when we went on our little camping trip Saturday night. The British Racing Green disappears in the low-laying shrubbery lining the hills outside of San Francisco, perfect for stealth camping and the no-hassle component build is easily serviceable from any number of spare parts bins you might find at shops while on the road during a trip.

While much of the drivetrain is no-nonsense, Gabe splurged a bit on the Thomson parts, the Jones H-bar, Paul thumbies and Spurcycle bell. Maxxis ardents provide ample puncture protection and trail bite while loaded and the Brooks saddle will continue to ripen with age. Yep. This is about as good as it gets in my opinion.

My favorite detail? The size small Revelate frame pack, cleverly hooked on the cable boss and bottle cage and the front derailleur mounting under the seat tube bottle cage…
