MASH: 2015 Histogram.

Posted by: kris

MASH never disappoints when it comes to retouching their Histogram frame set year to year. For 2015 the team’s Garret Chow hit the nail on the head with a silver/black masked Cinelli logo on the down tube looking too damn clean. These are set to drop in October just under a grand at $950. Might seem pricey but for 7005 T6 Columbus dream machine it’ll be worth it…

Tested: Knog Party Combo Lock.

Posted by: kris

A bit back the friends at Knog sent through their lightweight Party Combo for a little street Testing. After a using around town for quick beer runs and a bit of extra security I’d say it deserves a bit of a rest. Below are a few things I liked and fewer that I didn’t as well as a handful of photos to peep. Having waited a bit on this review I wanted to have some fun with the flicks so I took to downtown after work yesterday to catch some of the buzz…

 

 

 

LOOK:

 

This cable lock doesn’t suck. That should be enough of a review right there because more often than not they do. Too long a cable or too crappy a lock makes you nervous to let them be seen with your bike let alone on it. The Party Combo from Knog tightens it up into a nice, simple looking design that you won’t mind carrying around. Personally I would have gone with black or one of the other 7 colors available for however “bright” your taste might be.

Hiplok DC and Gold.

Posted by: kris

When you’re trying to survive in the bike security game you’ve got to be innovative and Hiplok knows this well. Expanding on their line of locks with two new takes on past releases the Gold and DC are looking pretty sweet.  I personally use either the D or 1.5 locks from the brand daily for work as a messenger and have yet to be disappointed. The newest offerings add a quick buckling system to their 10mm chain lock and a 5mm steel cable to their u-lock style D. Look for more on these once some samples arrive and in the meantime read up here!

Testing Testing: Eighthinch Drop and Riser Bars.

Posted by: kris

The old friends at Eighthinch sent out a couple of their newest bars to put through the ringer. Having just been released the new drop bar and small risers are a huge improvement over their past models. Since the my tarck build is made up of almost all Eighthinch goods the riser will be right at home while the drops will end up on a track build. Here’s a couple snaps from a grimy downtown alley…check back for more after these get broken in!
