Tested | Blackburn Grid 13 Multitool.

Posted by: kris

From unboxing the Blackburn Grid 13 multitool I knew it wouldn’t be leaving my bag. The key here is layout which makes things less clunky and each tool that much easier to use. Toss in a wide selection of wrenches, drivers and the obligatory bottle opener and the Grid is perfect tagging along for the ride.

Hiplok FLX.

Posted by: kris

Chances are when you’re headed into the hills or on a long on the pavement you won’t be making many stops. Carrying a full-size lock and lights can be a hassle when your focus is saddle time yet a cup of joe might be mandatory. Enter Hiplok‘s new FLX lock/light combo that’s just right for the job. A lightweight cable lock keeps your ride safe while still in sight while an integrated light keeps you in sight after dark…take a look!

Tested | 24 Bottles From Italy

Posted by: Chris Yang

Few days ago I spent some time relaxing in the coffee shop and enjoying this beautiful water bottles! Big thanks to 24 Bottles and their distributor Bike The Moment in HK for sending their elegant urban bottles and world champion color wine rack! Established in 2013, 24 Bottles brings you the finest design that you can ever imagine on the water bottle. The designers saw the waste….people throwing disposables away all around the planet. They decided to change that situation and aimed to come out with the 18/8 stainless bottles that were sustainable, light (100g) and stylish!

 

Unlike most cycling water bottles we see, their bottles are beautiful, clean and easy to carry. It’s a simple water bottle that actually includes many functional details…the matte print makes it hard to leave any fingerprints, the wide lip of the bottle makes you easy to put some ice cubes inside. The main idea behind the company is to lower the waste and keep our planet clean and healthy! That’s also the idea behind 0.08kg on the bottle, which means the dispersal of 0.08kg of CO2 coming out from the production of a disposable 0.5l plastic bottle. Wine rack helps you tighten your bottle or even wine on your frame when commuting in the city. It’s flexible and durable so you don’t even have to worry about falling out. There are so many good things on their website and I just simply love the idea and the great design of this company. So stoked that Lockedcog can help them share some words out and we are certainly looking forward to seeing their upcoming products in the future!

Tested | Knog Pop Duo Bike Light Set

Posted by: Chris Yang

It’s been a few months since I came back from my lovely second hometown Sacramento last year…met up with some new and old homies, especially the real dude behind Lockedcog, Kris Fay. I got this set of Knog Pop Duo Bike Lights from him but never really had an opportunity to have them shot! Special thanks to my friend again, Y.C Tang, for running our night time experiment!

 

The light itself, apparently, is not their brightest model in the category…but I think it’s actually good enough for urban riders like me. It comes with 5 different light modes and the visibility at distances is over 1000 meters. Like other lights of Knog, it comes with the quick release mounting so that you won’t even need 5 seconds to set them up! Overall, as far as I am concerned, this set of lights is great for the rider who commutes in the city. If you are going to climb some hills at night with low light and low visibility, I recommend you to get a higher level, which is the brighter one! Anyway, I’m still stoked to see the outcomes of these photos from my boy!

Tested | Musguard From Slovenia

Posted by: Chris Yang

Few years ago when Musguard just started on Kickstarter looking for backers, I was actually stunned by the simple, smart design of their mud protectors! The saver looks so simple, elegant but it actually hides so many details on the design. Different from Ass Savers, as far as I am concerned, Musguard creates a more functional and flexible system for the commuters.

 

It’s my pleasure to have this opportunity to test out their products and ride around in Taipei City, see how it goes…and the result is just incredible! Musguard offers you a longer rear protector to save your butt and…unlike saddle attachment, it goes down on your seat tube with a Velcro in order to fasten up, which means it basically fits any kind of bikes! The front one, however, is extremely important for commuters if they ride on a wet road. Sometimes the splash comes from the front wheel and gets your jeans wet and dirty. Musguard offers the front fender to keep you away from those shits! It also comes with a sticky pad  for attaching on your down tube safely and stably.

 

What if you don’t need them for now?….the fenders are rollable so that when you don’t wanna put them on, you can just roll them up on your top tube or store them inside your pouch. It’s just amazing to see that these simple fenders have so many different functions. Even though it’s not easy to set them up at the first time, yet some practices required and you will get used to it! In a nutshell, these sweeties are just off the hook! If you haven’t seen or used them, take a look on their promotion video and hang around on their site for more info!
