Interbike 2010: Point1 and NS Billet

October 6, 2010

North Shore Billet

These guys sit in Vancouver, machining brake mounts, hose tidies and 74 different derailleur hangers for a ton of different bikes. Distributed in the UK by Shorelines

Many Post-mount to IS adaptors and everything in between.
It's simple and un-necessary, but somehow it pleases us.

Point1 Racing

Brought in by Hotlines, this company seems to be gaining many fans – certainly for its slim Podium Pedal.

Slim, deconstructed and very grippy.
Clever all mountain stem with integral stem cap. Clever stuff.
More cleverness. You can rotate the eccentric handlebar-holder within this bolt-on stem up or down to give you a 2mm rise to 8mm drop.
Penalty over a regular non-adjustable stem is apparently only 4g
Coming soon, this is a rough-machine version of its new XC 90mm stem, again with integral stem cap.
70mm. Comes in all the colours. Black and white.
