Who doesn’t love a bit of CNC machining?

For those of us whose hearts live in the ’90s, White Industries was on hand with updates to their boutique hubs as well as a modern take on the square-taper crankset.  Starting with the latter, the prototype Narrow/Wide Direct Mount chainring fits up to White’s lovely CNC’d cranks and is scheduled for production in 28-34 even tooth counts.  Black will be available- but why when you could have silver?

The CLD1+ hubs will soon be entering production in 110mm (front) and 148mm (rear) sizes.  Due to the added machining time, a small upcharge is expected.  Interestingly, the 48-point drive ring shared with Rolf Prima is available as a no-charge option- the freer-running 24-point version will be the default for now.

Over in 6-bolt land, the mountain-oriented MI6 and ‘cross-specific CX11 have been left alone in the dark for too long, and the result is a new XMR.  Thru axles are the default, but QR endcaps can be dropped into the hubs for a quick and easy retrograde.
