Salsa forges ahead with 2020 steel lineup including Fargo, Vaya, & Marrakesh

first_imgIn spite of all the advancements with carbon fiber, and even aluminum, to a lot of riders – steel is still quite real. While often a bit heavier, steel offers a comfortable ride, a stout build, and a durable frame for years of abuse. If you’re adventuring off the grid (or onto the grid of a new country), those can be very desirable traits. To satisfy the lust for CroMoly, Salsa has just unveiled their 2020 steel range with updated paint and components on the Fargo, Vaya, and Marrakesh.FargoFeaturing a new color and new Teravail Sparwood 29×2.2″ tubeless tires, the Fargo Apex 1 continues as Salsa’s steel gravel and bikepacking dropbar mountain bike.Overall, the frame looks unchanged with Cobra Kai CroMoly tubing and Alternator V1.5 dropouts which allow you to run multiple hub standards and add a single speed or belt drive set up.

ENVE Trade In & Trade Up is back making carbon wheel upgrades more affordable

first_imgLast fall ENVE started a limited time deal where they would pay you for old carbon wheels if you wanted to upgrade to their latest, premium American-made carbon hoops. Trade-In, Trade-Up was a big success last year, so they’ve brought it back to make end-of-the-year carbon wheel upgrades more affordable.ENVE Trade-In, Trade-Up limited time carbon wheel upgradesThe concept is the same as last year, even though the discount is slightly reduced. If you have any older, ridable carbon wheelset at home collecting dust, Enve will give you a sizable trade-in bonus towards the purchase of one of their newest M, G, or SES series wheelsets. If you send in an old Enve wheelset you get a $900 credit, or a $600 credit for any other non-Enve carbon wheelset, from now until Jan 3, 2020.ENVE VP Jake Pantone says the idea was originally just to get more riders to ride Enve’s latest M Series mountain bike wheels which had big flat-eliminating technical improvements. But Enve realized it made sense to include SES & G Series wheels too, to get riders on their latest tech.It doesn’t matter what riding discipline, axle or freehub standard the old wheels you want to replace have, they just need to be in ridable condition. And the trade-in program is only open to US customers, either via local Enve retail shops or direct via Enve.com. That’s because Enve isn’t scrapping the old wheels like some upgrade programs do. Instead, Enve evaluates each trade-in wheelset to refurbish what they can, and either resells or donates the old wheels to get them back onto bikes again.“Many of our customers own perfectly good wheelsets that are sitting in their garages collecting dust. These wheels have become obsolete by way of advancements in axle standards, tire volumes, and the growth of disc brakes.The true beauty of this program is that we are providing a convenient outlet to put these dormant wheelsets into the hands of someone in need. Last year, wheelsets that were traded in on our program were donated to cycling programs in developing nations, to high school mountain biking, and developmental road programs. Ultimately, it is our goal to find a home for each wheelset brought in on trade,” says Pantone.ENVE.comlast_img read more

SRAM Buys Quarq, Adds Powermeter Mfr to Brand Stable

first_imgSRAM has just announced their aquistition of Quarq Technology, Inc., makers of crank-based powermeters that use the ANT+ wireless protocal to transmit info to a compatible cycling computer. This means you probably won’t see an SRM option when ordering up a powermeter equipped SRAM crankset directly from them, but it could mean some interesting new power measurement devices (pedals?) given SRAM’s resources. Here’s hoping for Flight Deck-like wireless computer that shows what gear you’re in…we’re still waiting on Shimano’s next-gen version, which we thought was just being held up while ANT+ standardized things a bit.Full press release after the break…PRESS RELEASE: SRAM is pleased to announce the acquisition of Quarq Technology, Inc.

Oakley Reveals Newest Limited Release: Chrome BMX Arrays

first_imgAt this point you might be asking yourself what is an array, is it the name of the glasses or what? Array is the term Oakley uses to describe an entire kit for a pair of sunglasses. The Array usually includes one frame, 3 lenses, multiple earsocks or nose pieces, bag, and case. So in this case there are two styles of sunglasses each with a limited edition Chrome BMX Array.The lenses offered in the array aren’t just any standard lenses. They are special lens tints offered in limited pieces in Oakley’s sun glass offering, and were selected specifically for inclusion in this array. For example, when you’re deep in nature and the sun is bright, you need increased visual contrast to bring out fine detail. Pop in the Violet IRIDIUM® lenses and complete the look by slipping on the matching purple earsocks. For neutral contrast that helps you maintain color recognition, install the Jade IRIDIUM lenses and Green earsocks, and you’ll be ready for a wide range of light conditions. The +Red IRIDIUM lenses go with the Red earsocks, and that premium lens color offers neutral contrast under bright skies.Look for these eye catching shades at a bike shop near you this May, and look to spend $350.00 to get a pair of these limited and very cool glasses. Both frames will come prescription ready. Head on over to Cyclingnews.com to see James Huang’s shots of these glasses under natural light to see just how shiny this chrome really is! Glimmering in the sun like the shiny new P.K. Ripper you lusted after back in the day,  the newest gotta-have-it unobtanium from Oakley takes form in the new Chrome BMX Array. Paying homage to those Quadrangle, Looptail, and twin top tube BMX frames from the late 70’s and early 80’s that were seemingly dripping with chrome, the new models are sure to catch anyone’s attention. Oakley states the BMX Array was “inspired by the decades Oakley has been part of two-wheeled sports, the BMX Chrome frame salutes the chromed bikes of kids who have become today’s champions.”The limited edition Array will consist of both a Jawbone and a Radar frame, each with 3 pairs of matching lenses and earsocks to emulate the color matched anodized parts that were all the rage then, and starting to come back now.  In addition, Oakley chose matte black for the frame jaw to throw in a nod to BMX tires. The new Oakley BMX Array will also include a custom Microclear polishing/storage bag and an Oakley Ballistic case to store them in. Both the Arrays will be available at premium bike dealers.See the new Chrome BMX Radars after the break!last_img read more

Random New Lightweight Goodies from Stronglight, THM and Lightweight Wheels

first_imgThe new Clavicula M3 has a two-piece carbon spider assembly that separates from the crankarm to let you swap in the SRM power meter or go from standard to compact gearing. The usual suspects had an array of feathery new goodies on display at Eurobike.THM-Carbone showed off a new SRM PowerMeter option for its Clavicula cranksets, as well as a two-piece spider that lets you swap to compact chainrings. Claimed weights for the cranksets with bottom bracket (w/o chainrings) are 470g standard, 460g compact and 420g for the SRM compatible setup as they don’t include the carbon fiber spider. Obviously, that weight is without the actual SRM unit.Plenty more wish list stuff after the break, including a eight-spoke aero wheel from Lightweight… They make a wide range of bottom brackets for Shimano pressfit, Cervelo’s BBRight, BB30, PFBB30 and now even BB386EVO.LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELSLightweight Wheels’ 8-spoke wheel is a total concept for now. I asked if it was laterally stiff and they said yes…Of course this isn’t the first octo-spoked wheel. Spinergy’s original Rev-X wheels use four paired carbon blades, but they were wide. And paired. If nothing else, these things sure garnered a lot of attention. No weights or specs were given.STRONGLIGHTStronglight has new SRAM 2×10 compatible chainrings with Ceramic Teflon coating. Claimed weights are 107g / 28g for the 42/28 rings. Other sizes are also available. €75 and €36 MSRP. That’s not quite Carbon-Ti weight, but close. They also have some Dura-Ace and Ultegra compatible rings that match up to the cranksets’ design.New Mega Oversize headsets for tapered headtubes are available for several frame standards without integrated lower bearings. Weights range from 137g to 147g.Lastly, they have a new aluminum fender to accompany their plastic ones. Still in prototype phase, so they’re developing sizes and pricing.last_img read more

IB14: Van Dessel’s New Carbon Road, Cyclocross & Mountain Bikes Debut – Plus Actual…

first_imgWe’ve teased some renderings (here and here) from Van Dessel’s 2015 bikes that showed a few of the new features, but nothing beats seeing them in the shimmering dust of Interbike’s Outdoor Demo. On hand were the new Full Tilt Boogie cyclocross bike, the Jersey Devil hardtail 29er and the Motivus Maximus disc-or-rim brake road bike.The new FTB gets Van Dessel’s new interchangeable dropouts on the rear. They allow for either 130mm or 135mm QR, or a 12×142 thru axle. Just switch the dropout and you’re good to go.Being a traditionalist when it comes to ‘cross, owner Edwin Bull lamented that it’s now disc brake only. He likes cantilevers, but nine out of 10 frames he sold were for disc brakes. While the rear end can be swapped out, the fork is either they axle or quick release, so you’ve gotta pick which one you want when you buy the bike.It’s running full internal routing and is Di2 ready. Ports are available with stops or without, accommodating full length housing runs for the rear derailleur if you want, and full length housing or hose for the rear brake. Nicely shaped seatstays should give the bike a bit of compliance.It has better heel clearance despite the ability to accommodate the wider axle options. They managed that trick by curving the chainstays compared to the straight ones on the prior model.Frame weight is at about 1,040g and the complete bike with pedals and Edwin’s racing tubulars was 17.13lb (7.77kg).The Jersey Devil is their new carbon hardtail 29er.All internal routing on a very angular frame that Edwin says is very strong and stiff.It’s a race design that’ll fit up to 2.3 tires. While the road and ‘cross bikes use PFBB30, the JD gets BB92.It has interchangeable dropouts, too – 135mm QR or 12×142.Frame weight is about 1,200g, and the complete bike with XX1, FSA cockpit and Stan’s Race Gold wheels was 20.68lb (9.38kg).The Motivus Maximus road bike replaces the Rivet. They haven’t take it to the wind tunnel, but there are a number of interesting aero shaping details.Up front, the head tube is kept narrow with a unique flare at the top to accommodate the headset. The fork’s crown is shaped into the downtube and the front brake is slightly recessed into the fork.The rear end is a bit softer thanks to the curved design, which also hides the rear brake a bit, too.The downtube gets shaped to tuck the water bottle into it, keeping the air flow running over the bottle smoother. The seat tube uses similar shaping to move the air off the back of your second bottle.Di2 or mechanical capability by swapping ports.The bike uses the Shimano Flat Mount disc brake standard, which keeps the frame clean if you’re running rim brakes.The underside gives a clue as to how the mounts will work – the brakes or adapters will bolt through the frame.Complete bike weight with heavy, basic wheels is 16.51lb (7.49kg).VanDesselSports.comlast_img read more

New Reynolds R2 Wheels Bring Full Carbon Clinchers, Tubulars Down to $1,000

first_imgWant the lightweight and responsive ride of carbon fiber rims but don’t wanna shell out a year’s worth of your cycling allowance?Reynold’s new R2 road wheels offer both a clincher and tubular 32mm deep rim in full carbon for just $1,000 per set. They’re’ built with the same hub as their Solitude wheels but in Silver. R2 tubulars are 1142g, clinchers are 1486g. They use traditional J-bend spokes, so repairs should be fairly economical, too. What do you give up for this price? Looks like the rims miss out on their CTg brake track that helps reduce temperature build up, but they still come with their CryoBlue brake pads. They’re aimed at enthusiast riders that want an upgrade in the ballpark price of high end alloy wheels.Hit more for a closeup of the clincher rim and a pic of the now-available deeper RZR92, which claims to be the fastest wheel ever tested… The RZR92 made its preproduction debut at Interbike last year, and now it’s finally avaiable. Reynolds says the wheel has tested faster than any other wheel. During a 40K TT at giving a 22.8 second advantage over a competitor using 81mm front/disc rear wheels and a whopping 41.0 seconds over the poor schmuck using 81mm front/rear wheels. How fast you need to be going to realized these gains? Faster than you or I probably ride. They’re designed with time trials and triathletes in mind.last_img read more
