Canfield Brothers Crampon Pedals
Super thin, 6mm thick, weighing 395 grams, these are reportedly the thinnest pedals on the market. What’s the point? Well the makers claim that by using these pedals, you can effectively lower you BB height by 8mm, while raising your ground clearance by the same distance. As the pedals are thin, they claim to allow better balance and stability over the spindle. RRP $150
Gusset Slade Low Rise Bars
760mm wide, 19mm low rise, these bars from Gusset are aimed at Downhill and Freeride bikers. RRP £ 34.99
KHS Urban Uno
From: KHS Bikes
The Urban Uno is a semi-retro looking singlespeed commuter, not a fixie. It has a Reynolds 520 Double butted fullCrmo frame and is finished with relatively decent kit for the price range. Price: TBC (sub £500)
These three tops from Howies are new for 2010, they are the Waffler (blue), the Henley (orange) and the Woman’s NBL (green). The Waffler is a 100% Merino wool, half-zip Mid-Layer. RRP £85. The Henley again is 100% Merino wool and has a button front placket and concealed thumb loops. RRP £70. The NBL is 100% Merino wool and has tiny holes in the fabric to give it improved moisture wicking properties. RRP £40
Howies Drifter Brown Jean
These jeans are 100% organic cotton and are triple needle stitched on the inside and outside. They are a new version of Howies best selling jeans – in ‘dad brown’ in a ‘classic comfortable, loose fit’. At RRP £80, they would need to be.
Da Bomb Da Rection Reducer Headset
The Da Rection headset from Da Bomb can fit just about any fork. It comes with the ability to change the spacing to allow a 1.5, a 1.1/8 and even a tapered fork, such as the Magura Thor to be used with the frame. At RRP £59.99, it’s cheaper than many of the other reducer headsets and seems to do a pretty good job so far.
