For those who prefer to spin up steep climbs, rather than power through them, Wolf Tooth has a new super-compact chainring for 4-bolt GRX cranks. These new rings go from 36t (!!!) through 46t and bolt right up to the GRX gravel cranks by Shimano. These rings, unlike a lot of components in the industry now, are in stock and shipping today from Wolf Tooth.
Wolf Tooth has a knack for figuring out how to stuff your stuff into the crevices and otherwise unusable frame spaces thanks to their innovative B-Rad cargo systems. To up the ante, they just updated their rolltop storage bags with a new Teklite fabric. These bags are more durable and lighter, enabling you to jam them full of arm warmers, a spare tube, a lightweight jacket, or a burrito if you don’t mind smashed pinto beans and chile…
-0.6L capacity to carry riding essentials: multi-tools, spare tube, or snacks
-Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) material is lightweight, strong, and durable
-Roll-top design protects contents from water, dirt, and other road grit
-Silicone-backed strap with hook-and-loop design keeps bag securely in place
-Flexible, durable construction from a composite of abrasion-resistant, high-tenacity fibers

Wolf Tooth’s Pack Pliers are a very clever way to keep a chain maintenance kit handy while out on a ride and their new 8-Bit Pack Pliers just upped the ante with a whole new level of functionality. The 8-Bit Pack Pliers are capable of 17 functions via eight attachments that are nested neatly inside the handle of master link pliers.

On top of all that, the 8-Bit Pack Pliers also have a tubeless valve cleaner integrated into the handle.
-17 functions: spoke wrench; valve core wrench; flat head #3.5 and Phillips #2 screwdriver bits; 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 8mm hex; and T10, T25 Torx-compatible bits; install and remove master links; clear tire sealant clogs from valve stem; tighten valve stem lock nut
-Magnets keep all bits in place
-Ball detent swivel head helps access hard-to-reach places

Wolf Tooth is always tinkering with products to make your bike more customizable to fit your needs. Their newest product is these lower headset cup extenders, allowing you to adjust the effective geo of your bike by increasing thee axle-to-crown length by 10mm. When dropping one of these in the lower head tube cup, it will allow you to do things like use a rigid fork on a suspension-corrected frame or use a fork that might have a lower ATC than the bike was designed for. Or drop one on your current bike and lower your head angle and raise your bottom bracket.
These are made in the USA, available in black, blue, or red, and in-stock now at Wolf Tooth.
I’ve been using the RedMonkey Sports grips for a few years now and their offerings were my favorite in terms of the silicone grip models out there.

Wolf Tooth has made a name for itself solving problems through innovative products. The latest being this ReMote drop bar lever, which addresses the awkward issue of adding a dropper trigger to your all-road bike. In what I would say is the cleanest offering thus far, the ReMote integrates like a barcon, making it easy to shift from the drops, exactly when you’re most likely to need your dropper!

With thru axles an industry standard and most thread pitches have been established, Wolf Tooth felt it was time to throw their hat into the ring of axles but they added their own design twist.
“Knowing the pain of damaging their prized frames, they added end caps that would take the brunt of rock scrapes and crashes. And because to look good is to feel good, they decided to offer Axle Caps in eight anodized colors. Caps thread into a dedicated recess in the axle head and are easily replaceable or swappable with an 8mm hex key.
Because cold weather and short days are never far from a Minnesotan’s mind, they also created Trainer Caps to reduce barriers to winter workouts. Non-drive side Axle Caps are joined by drive-side plugs that can be installed or removed with ease to make the prospect of hopping on the trainer a little more bearable.”

Wolf Tooth has grown their B-RAD lineup to include these Pump Bags, ready to carry whatever you can cram into them. Perhaps even a Sin Dawg from the looks of it? I’ve been using a similar, yet a lot smaller bag for some time now, carrying the Silca pocket pump, or a Dynaplug with a Co2. If you’ve got bottle bosses to spare, these nifty bags can put them to use. My personal favorite is the underside of the downtube, particularly on a touring bike or hardtail, for when you don’t need three full bottles. See more at Wolf Tooth!
