Fresh Container, New Products

by Igor

With the arrival of our latest container we received several new products.

Silver, polished pedals may not go with every bike, so we're now offering our popular Sabot Pedals in the Noir colorway. Details include a polished black anodized pedal body, silver rounded pins, and a silver spindle for contrast. Three sealed, cartridge bearings make a super smooth spinning pedal with loads of real estate to support any shoe from bulky hiking boots to minimal sandals and everything in between. The rounded traction pins won't tear up your leather-soled dress shoes, either.

Similarly to the aforementioned Sabots, a polished, silver headset may not go with every bike. Plus, black is faster, second only to red. It's science. Grand Cru headsets have oversized, sealed cartridge bearings and lightweight alloy construction. Split crown races make installation a breeze and maintenance is basically non-existent. Easy-peasy.

Maybe you don't think that downtube cable stops are exciting, but these little guys from Dia-Compe are incredibly handsome. The ridges on the barrel make for easy micro-adjustment while in the saddle or in the workstand. Button head mounting screws are included.

Yellow Cable Housing

You'd be surprised how often we get asked for yellow housing, so we made it. Bam! Available in both Shift and Brake Kits.

I love low-profile brakes for touring bikes. They don't interfere with luggage and have excellent stopping power. These 710's from Tektro are good quality brakes. They don't have the adjustability or high-quality brake pads that our Grand Cru Zestes have, but they do have an adjustor barrel and are a cinch to install.

We also re-stocked on other items such as fenders, brakes, hardware, and cable housing. Here's the full list:
If you're in the area and are planning on going to our Garage Sale this weekend, be sure to sign up for the Facebook event page to stay updated!

All right, now get out there and enjoy your day!

"black is faster, second only to red"
I can't believe I'm reading this at Velo Orange of all places. It's well documented that orange is the fastest color!
