The New Sh*t Thread


Likes Bikes and Dirt
Ok well im sick of 100million threads a week being posted on new stuff coming out (or just protos) so just post it up here, limited chat, only post if you have pics.

i'll start off, old news but still not out yet.

Premium has a super-thin 6061 T6 aluminum pedal hitting the market in November. The pedal is 14mm at the thinnest point and 17mm at the thickest point, and weighs less that 16 oz per pair. They will be available in black, brown and red anodized colors with laser-etched artwork on both sides.

- Extruded and CNC Machined 6061 T6 Alloy Body
- CNC Machined Cromo spindle with Micro sealed bearing / Du bushing
- Removable / Replaceable Allen Screw Pins - Black
- Sand Blast Anodized finish
- Laser Etched Premium Logos
- Weight = 15.87oz per pair

- Same shape, materials and spindles as the original JC pedal.
- Slimmed-down bridge sections and longer gripping pins.
- Knurl-free contact surface to prevent dirt from getting clogged.
- 19.8* ounces (looseball aluminum - pair).
- All new 17mm wrench-flat spindle ends (with 6mm allen key slots).
- Black, Gold, High-Polished, Limited.
- Looseball or Sealed.
- Replacement pins included.
- Aluminum now. Magnesium later.
- Organtic, not organic.

Made at the request of riders like Taj, and some of JC's other friends, the Trailmix is a lighter-weight version of the original pedal (still in production) that leans more toward trail riding with it's longer pins, slimmer bridges, and knurl-free gripping surface. The pedals also feature our new 17mm hex-end spindle wrench flats that will accept the width of most adjustable wrenches - helping to simplify assembly when traveling (6mm allen key slot also included).

Our first delivery is looseball, black aluminum only. These should be at distributors and shops in roughly two weeks. Other colors and options will be available at a later date.

*The original JC looseball aluminum pedals are 24.8 ounces (for the pair).

New demo Hubs

New hubs called Ashley (rear) and Mary-Kate (front) have been tested
and are almost ready for production. We'll get you guys some specs and
more pics soon enough.

Vandero 2 wheels

Vandero 2 wheels are shipping to shops and distributors now. You can expect them to be available in a week or two (if not sooner). As with all new machine built wheels, we highly recommend re-tensioning and re-truing the wheel after a few days of continuous use. Individual Vandero 2 hubs will be available soon.


- Black Vandero 2 Hub (36-H only).
- Black OEM Spokes.
- Hazard Lite Rim (chrome or hard anodized black).
- 2 lbs. 3 oz. with stock rim strip.
- Pricing will be slightly higher than the original Vandero wheel, but should remain in the same basic range.


The Vandero 2 is over three ounces lighter than the original Vandero, with only a minimal change in the suggested retail price. Employing G-Sport axle technology, this is essentially a mix of the Vandero and the Marmoset. What's the difference? The Marmoset has a stronger axle, bigger bearings and uses the highest quality materials available. The Vandero 2 is an affordable alternative that all
ows us to make reasonably priced factory built wheels.

- 17mm 7075-T6 helicoiled aluminum axle
- 3/8" G-Sport axle bolts w/17mm wrench flats & 6mm allen key slots.
- 2014-T6 forged Vandero hub shell (36-H only).
- 7075-T6 collars.
- 8.5 ounces (weight includes all hardware.)
- Black, Polished and limited editions.

Recent steps have been taken to ensure that the bearing seats on all of our hubs are being held to the tightest possible machining tolerances during manufacturing. We guarantee it.

A big post on the Plegs will be up tomorrow. They're not available yet, but we'll give you a lot of news on where we're at, as well as some interesting comments from the riders that are using them right now.

Director Forks are shipping now.

- New steerer tube and leg joint is stronger than conventional designs.
- Butted and tapered “direct” legs prevent rail and grind hang-ups.
- 10mm hollow integrated leg dropouts.
- 1 lb. 15.6 oz. (895.8g) with uncut 170mm steerer tube and pre-load bolt.
- 3/8” axle slots only.
- Rustproof finishing prior to powdercoating.
- Black and white (limited soon).

Expect to see them at distributors/shops in roughly two weeks.

Info straight from the box is as follows:

"While the Director Fork may look different from what you're used to, the geometry and feel is an identical match with traditional forks. The axle is in the same position as it would be with a "normal" fork design.

The Director's differences are rooted in the use of new construction techniques. The steerer tube is connected to the legs by using a joint design that is a substantial improvement over ordinary tubular crown forks. The legs have been angled forward so the hollow dropouts can blend smoothly into the leg tubing, while also maintaining a "traditional" axle position. By running the legs "directly" from where the load is applied (at the steerer tube), to where it is reacted against (at the axle), the mechanical efficiency has been maximized in this structure. The end result is improved performance and durability.

The dropouts are formed from the leg itself, rather than being a basic welded on plate that is left to "flap in the breeze" like on a conventional fork. This design, combined with a 10mm thickness, makes bent dropouts a thing of the past. The hollow dropouts are not only dramatically stronger, they're lighter too.

While weighing in at less than most "racing specific" chromoly forks, the Director Fork is intended for use with every style of riding."

For more photos, you can check out the original introduction posts by searching the site's archives.

All of the current Classic Forks are obviously still available in black and assorted colors.

I ran out of time today, and will get on to the other stuff I've mentioned on Wednesday - time permitting.

taken from

The new Simple eject hub should be in stock any day now and from the specs this hub should be very interesting. who would have thought a flangless hub. it looks awesome and by all reports works well. Not only is this a unique design it also has nice features like 7075-T6 Aluminium throughout. A hollow 17mm female axle with M10 helicoil threads and no doubt light as a feather, there is also a Optional hub/spoke guard.
