For bikes that take a bit more of a beating it’s often convenient to have a quick release seat clamp for a bit more maneuverability on the go. Whether its dropping you cyclocross seat for a for a bit more room on a downhill or getting your track bike more dialed for some bumps this is just what you need. Paul’s QR clamp is CNC machined, rocks an internal cam and looks as good as everything that comes off their production line. We have one these on the way so stay tuned for a full review…in the mean time swoop here!
The weather’s a changin’ and Chrome is here to deliver just in time for spring. They’ve added a bunch of fresh tops, kicks and jackets just in time for the mixture of warm and wet temps ahead. Pop over for a look at the whole set of new additions…definitely digging those grey/gum Truk Pro SPDs!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a freestyle edit this proper and holy hell is this Ruff Bike Co mixtape great. Eights minutes of creativity from the dudes with too many clips to list off.

Brick Lane Bikes showing off their mighty nice Notorious Zero disc wheel in this quick promo.

In the world of bicycle commuting ease and durability remain king. If you spend each day getting to and from by bike you need simple parts that are built to survive the elements. Enter the Lux from Loki Cycles. Nothing groundbreaking but nice to see a pedal/strap combo that looks this good out of the box. From experience I can say a flat pedal with proper foot retention is ideal swapping out shoes and the added support on these should have you pedaling around for some time. Peep the Kickstarter to support!

More money means more products like the Action Pack below…so hop over to help out!
If you keep up with the crew at The Heavy Pedal you’ve probably noticed them making some big moves as of late. Already slated to release their much anticipated Axiom now you can lighten things up a bit with these proper carbon clinchers.

More once I get my grubby hands on these and in the meantime be sure to check them on IG to keep up on the daily!

Centered around a water resistant soft shell this bad boy will keep you warm while making sure you stay crispy. The media pocket will make sure you stay connected while reflective accents keep you safe. It’s been pouring the past couple weeks here in Sacramento so this looks like a must have for the daily grind. Swoop here!
Not long ago The Heavy Pedal was a cycling blog among the masses before morphing into street tested cycling brand. Over the past few years their rad designs and attention to detail have made them household name among urban cyclists. Over the past month I’ve had some exciting chats with the friends at THP and am stoked to be working with them in the coming year. I picked out a couple of my current favorites with the Cruising shirt (naturally) and the Harlequin. They’ve got a big 2015 planned so I’m looking forward to hitting the pavement hard after the new year…stay tuned!
