Looks ace for wheelies... Those Turner fans who asked about the Flux and the 5Spot, fear not! The 4in Flux continues on, mostly unchanged. The 5Spot gains a bigger tapered-friendly head tube, uppy-downy post bosses and a slacker 67.7° head angle. We liked the cut of the jib of the Aussie guy from Thrones. He'd flown in the day before from Australia, having been home for a couple of days after Eurobike. And he's called Troy... Nice saddles too. www.bikethrones.com Very road and 'cross inspired, but anything that proclaims to be 'For your royal arse' can't be bad. Evel saddle for your Evil perhaps? Syncros Does that bar look particularly wide? It's a metre (1000mm) wide! Syncros made it as a joke, but have had a fair number of young downhillers asking when it was coming out. They all then appeared to say 'I'd probably cut it down though' Not to be used anywhere you need to get between trees... This is the new Syncros FRIC (Free Ride Intelligent Clamp) stem. It's cold-forged and has a very smooth, knee-saving design, as well as a very bar-hugging 260 degree clamp. It weighs 123g and will come in 45mm and 60mm lengths (and in black too) Plastic time pedals. Sorry, 'composite'. As loved by many journos at Singletrack This appears to be a composite caged pedal in the style of the Shimano downhill clipless pedal. We'll endeavour to get a pair in. The Time 'All Road Gripper' pedal. Not as exciting as it sounds though as it's a commuting 'one side clip-in, other side flat' pedal. Nice colours though. It's a good job Jo Burt isn't here. He'd go bonkers with lust Velocity rims would like to thank fixie hipsters everywhere... Surely it's 'peloton' and not 'peleton'? Hydrapak had a 'pump up the bladder' competition New colours and trim for Hydrapak When pack designers live somewhere dry... Oakley was showing how much potential clashing you can build into its jawbone sunglasses Blinded by choice at Oakley Gravity is another firm that's doing headsets in nearly all combinations. Limited edition fluoro yellow handlebars from Gravity. Let's hope very limited. Another show and another appearance by the Cannibal. Perhaps he's stalking Chipps It seems that America hasn't discovered the joys of the Belgian waffle, so Honey Stinger is individually wrapping them for trailside enjoyment. Put down some spider-tread - that'll confuse them. Neat (and near waterproof) city riding tweed from Showers Pass. This is the Showers Pass Elite Mountain jacket. It looks like a US company is finally doing a decent waterproof... Event fabric, reinforced in the right places and sensibly placed pit zips. The more road-cut Elite Pro jacket - it has a clever 'neck-vent' for instant cooling. Only weighs 250g too The land of the $9 tuna sandwich. Ouch!

Markie September 27, 2010 at 9:52 am perhaps I’m coming down with something, I quite like the flouro bars and post… kelvin September 27, 2010 at 10:00 am Syncros stem goes on wish list… Van Halen September 27, 2010 at 10:49 am that syncros stem is definatly a ‘want’ item. toons September 27, 2010 at 11:04 am Thanks Chipps regarding the 5 Spot info. stilltortoise September 27, 2010 at 11:49 am “looks ace for wheelies” Looks ace for catching your toes on the front wheel Paceman September 27, 2010 at 11:51 am Lovin’ the look of that Syncros stem too 🙂 Hairychested September 27, 2010 at 1:14 pm I want this fat bike. Badly! speaker2animals September 27, 2010 at 1:42 pm Surely Eddie will be stalking Frites (and mayo)? And when have our US cousins ever worried about spelling and lets be fair it’s a french word so that may well be the translation! Mister P September 27, 2010 at 1:58 pm I have had an orange and grey Hydrapak that looks very much like that one for ages. It does show the dirt but I wear a dirty pack like a badge of honour. I_Ache September 27, 2010 at 2:34 pm I want that stem for my pin[k]bred any more details on it like how to get the bar into the clamp. Surely it wont just slide in like normal do you have to feed it through from the side? bigyinn September 27, 2010 at 5:59 pm Quite right! Punish the tuna eaters. Andy September 27, 2010 at 7:14 pm Hurrah for time pedals with a clip in on one side and flatties on the other. Probably cost more than the commuter they would go on though…. Northwind September 27, 2010 at 8:48 pm 1 Synchros stem please! “scrolling up and down on that Sidi pic. oooooh. very odd effect no?” Hah, I thought that too. Glad it’s not just me! james September 27, 2010 at 10:13 pm “and a slacker 67.7° head angle” what fork is that with? 150mm Fox 32 (QR15)? So the 140mm 5spot is now slacker bottomed out/with the same fork than the 100mm flux? rather than the other way around .. (as before) “Not to be used anywhere you need to get between trees…” except maybe fireroads? chipps September 28, 2010 at 10:33 am ‘any more details on it like how to get the bar into the clamp’ Yes, you feed it in from the side, but it only has to clear the bulge of the bars. charlierevell September 28, 2010 at 10:19 pm So which bolts do you do up first on the synchros stem?
