Seven Cycles RedSky lets you grind gravel without disc brakes

seven cycles redsky rim brake gravel road bike

In what can almost be called old school anymore, Seven Cycles has busted out a modern gravel grinder for those not quite ready to give up their rim brake wheels.

The new RedSky combines modern frame building and features with medium reach brake calipers. Run it with a racy 700×23, or push things out to a ‘cross ready 35mm, and the bike will look good either way. It’s based off their Axiom and Evergreen road bike platforms, but made to accommodate a little more rubber and bumpier roads. If the morning red sky’s forecast for bad weather doesn’t deter you from riding, your ship may have come in…

The must-have accessory of Press Camp 2015 was easily Fabric’s ultra-functional, minimalist Cageless Waterbottle, so we were excited to see how the UK brand would top itself moving into this year’s event. Fabric did not disappoint.

The brand has not only taken strides in further fleshing out its otherwise impressive existing lines in bottles, saddles, and tools, but it has once again expanded into several new categories with the same out-of-the-box approach. Let Fabric’s new offerings pump (CLAP) you up after the jump.

After relying on an aging yet effective cargo bike, a contractor named Harry thought he could do better. Meanwhile, his friend Larry was already building cargo bikes for another brand. Together, Harry and Larry thought they could create the ideal cargo hauling bicycle. Eight years ago the first Bullitt bike was built, and since then they’ve become a hit with riders all over the world.

Keeping with the times, the duo recently decided to add power to their proven bike with the new STePs eBullitt model. The new bike features a Shimano STePs motor, but also uses battery power to control its Di2 electronic shifting and integrated lighting.

As you’d expect there are plenty of options for various cargo storage boxes or child seats, plus customizable component upgrades like Brooks saddles, Gates belt drive systems, or full Shimano groupsets to suit your application…

Next gen Cannondale SuperX tackles current state of cyclocross

PC-2016_Cannondale_Super-X-4

PC-2016_Cannondale_Super-X-1

Cannondale’s context for the new SuperX is that the sport of cyclocross is changing as it grows in popularity. Seasons have gotten longer, sometimes starting as early as late spring when courses are dry, dusty, and fast. Races are getting faster and more technical. Courses themselves have gotten more extreme, with features resembling downhill courses of the early 90’s.

In this third iteration of the Super X, Cannondale has created the cyclocross machine for the moment. The new geometry is geared around stability and traction from a handling standpoint, as well as control and comfort from the rider’s perspective. It is light-weight (claimed 1000g frame) and possesses massive tire clearance to boot. What is really exciting about this model is in how Cannondale, once again, bucks convention to accomplish everything. More on this, after the jump…
