Fresh Goods Friday – 246

by
June 12, 2015

It’s that special time of the week when our minds wander from the priorities of work and into the coming weekend’s adventures. Let’s face it, from here in to the end of the day work becomes a bit more half-assed from all of us and this introduction is really no exception. Here’s some stuff wot we got. Meh!

SR Suntour Axon 20in suspension fork

From: Moore Large, todayscyclist.co.uk

This diddy, carbon (carbon!) suspension fork from SR Suntour isn’t currently in production as such, but it’s using this carbon fork to gauge interest in whether it should make a magnesium, more affordable model. Ironically, it’s easier for the company to make a carbon fork (by trimming existing 27in carbon legs and bonding on the dropouts to make a shorter fork) than to make a magnesium version, which would take a whole new casting. So… what do you reckon? Are your kids worth it?

TRP Brakes

From: Upgradebikes.co.uk

TRP Quadium – four-piston DH/enduro brake. SRP £199.99 each end

There’s a two-piece 6-bolt rotor in there too that comes in 203 & 180 sizes.

Levers with reach adjust and fully hinged clamps for ‘nottakinggripsofftogetthemoff’ maintenance.

Praxxis 11-40 Wide Range 10speed cassette

From Upgradebikes.co.uk
Price: £99

The wide angled shot of a cassette

Now for the close-up shot.

Then back to a wide angle shot but from an ever so slightly different angle than the first shot, just to play with the perspective a little and make you think this is not just a pointless extra shot of something that we all are all very familiar with.

SRAM Pro Bleed Kit

From: SRAM

No more struggling to bleed brakes. This Pro level bleed kit from SRAM contains everything you’ll need to bleed any brake it’s made in the past. With Dr Jekyll style syringes and a torque-wrench-able 8mm spanner bit, there’s a lot of high quality kit here, including olives and o-rings and all sorts.

Orange Mountain Bikes socks

Mid-calf citrus fresh socks!
They are £10 a pair for size large. If you choose small they are still £10, which seems like a bit of a tax on tiny people.

Burgtec Penthouse Flats

From: burgtec.co.uk/news/burgtec-penthouse-mk4/
Getting a prize for the best named flat pedals since the Kona Wah Wah, these flats from Burgtec are angular in appearance, big of platform and low in profile. ‘Machined with love!’ These steel axle versions cost £99.99

Pins for flat pedal pinning it!.

Bellroy Elements Wallet

From: Bellroy.com/wallets
Price: $119.95

Made from all-weather leather, the Elements Phone Pocket Plus fits a large phone, passport, cards, notes, coins, key and SIM card, they tell us. We’ve had the smaller versions in before and they are really very nice. Jenn’s got this one and will be reporting on it fully in a month or so.

Please feel free to cut and paste this handily place phrase, ‘HOW MUCH!’ into the comment of your choice.

Hope Hoops – Pro2 Evo

From: Hope
Price: £420/pair
They come with a 20mm ‘hole’ through them but with adaptors available to plug it down to 15mm and even QR-sized pinholes if you like. A one hub fits all… kind of. 

And this is a first for us.. And now more boobies than Bill Oddies Facebook page!

Well, testing is underway for our upcoming sports bra grouptest scheduled for mid July and this has been a good week for bustenholders. Boob’s model’s own.
