To complement their mountain bike brake and fork offerings, Formula thought the next direction to go should be hubs, which makes sense as a good link between the two. But they didn’t just dip their toes lightly into the endeavor, so they jumped in with both feet and went with well-rounded wheelsets, offering wheels for 27.5”, 27.5+ & 29ers in both Boost and standard spacings to cover everything from your lightweight XC riding, through regular trail riding, and off the enduro drops on the other side. Take a look with us at the new Linea 2, 3 & 4 wheelsets, and the hubs at their core after the jump.

Plus, check out their new Cura-E e-bike brakes too, to see what happens when you start thinking about connecting your levers into your bike’s wiring harness…

FSA WideR wheels hit the Afterburner to trails near you

Crankworx 2016 bikerumor-107

First spotted in a booth at the Taipei Show, FSA’s Afterburner WideR wheels are now out burning up the trail. Based on the specs, FSA looks to have a solid contender with fairly wide asymmetric rims, great hubs, and a light weight build in both 27.5 and 29″ sizes. They seem to be pretty durable too, with Transition/Gravity putting them to the test on his way to second in the Challenge Enduro in Whistler…

Jamis_Komodo-26+_Expert_aluminum-plus-szied-hardtail-mountain-bike_trail-riding

Just back at Sea Otter we were introduced to a pair of new 26+ hardtails from Jamis  – the Dragonfly & Eden – geared towards giving women some wide Plus-sized tire love. But apparently Jamis had received such positive and immediate feedback from both customers and dealers that they have expanded a lot on those new hardtails and even brought the smaller 26+ wheels over to the bikes for men. Now all of the steel Dragonslayers and alloy Komodos get Plus-sized rubber with the option of either 26″+ or 27.5″+ hoops. Check out the spec and pricing on the full family, including the women’s bikes after the break…

Drivo_Model

Whether you’re a novice or a pro, trainers are common practice. For weekend riders you may look at a simple fluid/mag trainer to get an hour or two in, and for the pro/club rider you may go for integrated power and route tracking. Either way, Elite has a machine for any level of rider, from rollers to direct drive systems. Get set up past the break… Continue reading “Break a sweat with Elite’s 2016-17 trainer lineup including most accurate power measurement for a trainer, ever?”

American Classic launches OEM hub, rim & wheel lineup

american-classic-OEM-series-hubs-and-wheels-2017

American Classic, who’s long made mid- and high-level aftermarket rims, hubs and wheels designed by Bill Shook, is turning an eye toward the OEM market. We’ve seen some of their tubeless ready Argent wheelsets turn up on gravel and cyclocross bikes over the past couple years, but it’s few and far between. With this new series of rims, hubs and complete wheels, they’re looking to build that presence.

They’ll offer two lines, a premium one using their 6-pawl cam hubs, and an all-new mid-range 2-pawl system with a massive 74 points of engagement.

The program is customizable so the OEM customers can work with us to select a rim, hub and axle spec to make a complete wheel to match the intended use, whether that’s rim-brake road, gravel, cyclocross, or even Plus MTB. The line officially launches at Eurobike next week.
