Got everything made from carbon? How about a carbon fibre dog bowl for your furry friend? The things people do to get noticed. Genuine Innovations obviously didn't fly to the Sea Otter as they'd never have got this lot through security.Here's the new things from Genuine Innovations - a mini bike pump with storage at the far end for your CO2 cartridge, which then screws in the near end to inflate your tyre. If you get a second flat, you can use it as a regular pump.Even World Champs need to eat. Christoph Sauser snacks on a beef sandwich while Chipps sneaks round the back and gets a picture of his new SRAM XX brakes.What the? We're guessing this must be the personal bike of someone at Specialized. A carbon 29er frame with custom graphics, Spesh carbon cranks and a singlespeed setup. Needing a new handlebar for your Vicar's bike? How about the new Metropolis from FSA?If you choose to run your Ibis Tranny as a singlespeed, you can fit a new hanger-less dropout that comes with integrated bottle opener instead.Again, if you choose to run a singlespeed setup on your Tranny, then you can simply unbolt the cable stops and replace them with single hose guides for the rear brake.Very orange. Here's a closeup of how the chainstays work on the Tranny, extending enough to take up the slack in a singlespeed chain. Alternatively, it allows you to remove the whole back end and fit the bike into a tiny case.A quick peek into the Santa Cruz warehouse. Here's a lineup of Stigmata frames, plus boxes of SRAM stuff. Goodies!The new Santa Cruz Jackals finally exist... A closeup of the Santa Cruz Driver 8 - which must feature the most pleasing 'on-bike' profile as the monocoque comes from the big headtube and tapers to where the swing link is anchored.Mmm... blue. Single ring only, though if you need more than nine gears, you can run a Hammerschmidt.Lezyne's new chain tool also features spoke keys for regular nipples and Mavic too.It's all about colours this year. Here are some Lezyne tools.And new CO2 dispenser. Keep the CO2 cartridge safe, then flip it round, screw in and dispense.Lezyne pumps and new slimmer, high pressure road pump.Lezyne's new shock pump with integral, super simple pressure gauge, activated by air pressure on the coil spring. There's also a replacement hose available for their regular tyre pump.

I was thinking of doing an “oversize mary with flat bits like a funky drop bar to rest your hands on”. chipps April 27, 2009 at 11:09 am I thought you might like that one, Brant Olly April 27, 2009 at 11:27 am “super simple pressure gauge, activated by air pressure on the spring” ah that IS clever!… ….though now im wondering how all other pressure gauges work, i was always under the impression it was by air pressure pushing on a spring? chipps April 27, 2009 at 11:31 am Yes, but these ones go up to 11… 🙂 This one’s inline, which you don’t usually see. And I don’t think anyone’s made such a transparent gauge. Dougal April 27, 2009 at 11:43 am Not sure about the dog bowl, our dog manages to move his huge heavy porcelain bowl several feet during a single 30s meal. pedalhead April 27, 2009 at 11:57 am At least we now have an answer to that age old question…is carbon fibre microwave-safe? Olly April 27, 2009 at 1:12 pm theres no denying, it [the shockpump] does look very nice 🙂 dave360 April 27, 2009 at 4:07 pm no it doesn’t miketually April 27, 2009 at 4:19 pm Removable cable guides? Who’d do something like that? Brother_Will April 27, 2009 at 6:30 pm Okay so weve seen the removable cable guides when are we going to see some fully modular frames? Ive patented that idea btw…. Honest. D0NK April 28, 2009 at 12:39 pm I like that pressure gauge hose, the current bog standard dial shock pump is a pain getting in/out of a packed camelbak. Any ideas when the hose for tyre pumps will be available and cost? hora April 29, 2009 at 3:37 pm The lad behind/next to the Specialized carbon 29er- He needs to see the Plague Doctor AND have a nice long SUNNY holiday! 😉 Comments are closed.
