Singletrack Socks

We got some of our very own branded socks from the Sock Guy. They’re made from wool and are super comfortable! RRP £10.99

Crank Brother Cobalt SL Directset
From: 2Pure

The Crank Brothers Cobalt SL omits the standard headset cup and replaces it with flanges incorporated directly onto the bearing itself which Crank Brothers claim has “created a headset that is both lighter, and has a lower stack-height than you’ll find on conventional headsets.” RRP £79.99

GearUp Bike Hanger
From: Madison

For those with too many bikes and not enough storage room, these hangers mount directly to the wall and have a padded arm to prevent marking the bike while the steel back plate prevents any damage to the wall. RRP £14.99

Mont Blanc Explorer 3 Bike Carrier
From: Mont Blanc

This is another carrier for our upcoming group test. The Explorer 3 is towbar mounted and comes in either a 2 or 3 bike option.

Pedro’s Domestique Floor Pump
From: 2Pure

Pedro’s like to do things brightly and this lime green floor pump is definately bright. It has a plastic handle, max 120 PSI and a 35mmx510mm steel barrel.

Pedro’s Super Prestige Floor Pump
From: 2Pure

Another pump from Pedro’s. This one has a reversable presta/schrader head, a hradwood handle, aluminium shaft and a super accurate dial gauge.

Pendle Strap-On Bike Rack
From: Pendle

Renthal Ahead Stem
From: Ison

Matt has put this renthal stem on his Santa Cruz Blur long termer. It’s a 50mm, 10 degree rise DH/FR aimed stem made with a split stem design – hence the two colour combo – to help reduce weight. RRP £79.99

Mont Blanc Barracuda Bike Carrier
From: Mont Blanc

Another rack for our upcoming test. The barracuda is a single bike, roof bar carrier. Looks a little like a torpedo don’t you think?

  1. Fancy a ride?

    Yeah, I’ll just get the strap-on.

    Some things just sound wrong.

  2. I like the idea and look of those Renthal stems
    how difficult are they to fit? guess you only have to do it once, but can you tighten the bars up and then the steerer clamp or do you need 7 hands and 3 allens keys?

  3. Why are the socks in the Shop shown as brown? Can I request blue or grey for better bike co-ordination purposes?

  4. I have had my Renthal Stem for a month now. Easy to fit, weighs 138gms. 4 bolts to clamp the bars and 2 to clamp to the steerer. These 6 bolts are all 4mm headed allen bolts.

  5. Those socks are really cool looking and sexy feeling in the real world.

  6. yo Benj, is Ms Rubber Queen going to fit in them GearUp Bike Hangerz?

  7. £15 for bike hook sounds steep. Halfords do one for £3 and it works a treat. The road bike is hung up with a simple plasti-coated hook from Wilko – £1.06!

  8. The socks ARE brown as in the shop. That’s just a terrible photo up there, which I’ll sort out on Tuesday. The Blue versions will be added to the shop on Tuesday too.

    They ARE very VERY nice BTW 🙂

  9. i thought matts blur lt was going to be a ‘normal’ bike, looks like he is slipping back towards burly with a 50mm stem!

  10. Somebody been watchng too many bike DVDs? What with all the supers above.

    I like those Pedros pump colours though, they’re super bright.

  11. Will be interesting to see whether any of the “organisational” pockets in the Lezyne packs will actually fit inside them what they are designed for. I bought 1 a while ago and the tube space must have been designed for a kiddie tube. Don’t get me started on the other pockets, but I couldn’t even get 1 tyre lever in it’s supposed place!
