Pure Evil. Before their re-birth Evil were well known for their burly little hardtails and the 'new' Evil is keen to keep up that heritage. The Evil Faction looks like it's well up to the task and that yellow is perfect. Now imagine an Evil Revolt in that colour. Mmmm...
All Evil frames come with a decal pack for you to customise your ride as you like and they'll be bringing out decals throughout the year so you can ride the zeitgeist wave.
Black 'n' Evil. The new Evil Sovereign.

It's the early '90s again! No, it's not, don't worry, but RaceFace are keen to get some colour back in to your life with these Atlas bars. Also available in green, blue, red, orange, purple, gold and black.

RaceFace Deus cranksets. The white ones remind us of the venerable Turbines a lot.

Brant has just popped round with some grips for us to have look at, they should match the Ragley range of frames. Good colours Brant.
Superstar are now doing a range of wheels. Here we have the Tech 2 Switch wheelset. £159.99 gets you full cartridge bearings, adjustable axle options so you can run them 9mm, 15mm or 20mm and DT Swiss spokes. Oh, and custom rim tape.

The Pure Racing KSi850 should cause some interest with those of us who are becoming hooked on being able to raise and lower our saddles on the fly as it comes in at just £59.99, and it's available in 27.2mm! Time will tell if it's a bargain or a false economy though.

Smith's PivLoc glasses let you snap the arms off the lens and swap out lenses. Very simple and secure so far.
No, he's not trying to be the next Bono. Chipps shows the three lenses that come with the new Smith Pivloc glasses. Black, their great mirrored rose lens and slightly mirrored clear.
Fox Shox' new RP23 with BoostValve
Fox' new TALAS 15QR fork with FIT technology.
Chunky clipless pedals from Syncros are Shimano cleat compatible.
Ritchey carbon stem. Not all carbon, but a layer of carbon around a thin alloy body.
The new Magura Julie HP. Affordable and now with a high pressure system compared to the low pressures of before. We're looking forward to trying these...

At the Singletrack Classic Weekender I was amiably accosted by a bloke who put these in my hands. They pop into the end of your bars and you can then stick beer bottle tops on them to show your beverage allegiance.
